There are good changeups in college baseball and there is a Jordan Wicks changeup. Routinely showing a 70-grade change, Wicks generated ten swing/misses during his first time around the order during a recent mid-July start. From a three-quarter slot with a low effort delivery and still head, he’s a strike-thrower and an out-getter. In 15 IP this summer, Wicks has a 0.60 ERA, allowing 12 hits and just three walks, while striking out 21. He complements his change-of-pace with a 90-93 mph fastball and carving command. His heater spins in the 2250-2400 range. He also keeps hitters off-balance with a near average upper-70s curveball that spins in the low 2500s and average 82-84 mph slider. Overall, Wicks is the top 2021 prospect on a loaded Rivet roster. At this point he compares favorably to 2020 draftees Jared Shuster (Wake Forest), Logan Allen (Florida International) and Ian Seymour (Virginia Tech) and therefore projects to go somewhere between late in the first to the middle of the second round.

Wicks is 6-foot-1 180 pound left-hander with a large frame and an athletic build.  He works from a 3/4 arm slot with a quick clean arm. He has smooth rhythm and good extension. His fastball is thrown 84-86mph with arm-side run. He commands a curveball with 1/7 action thrown at 72-75 mph. His changeup was thrown 71-73 mph with arm-side run. He has continued to improve has a hitter and is turning heads as a two-way player. He starts from an athletic stance and attacks the baseball with fast bat speed. He has an advanced feel for the barrel and has shown the ability to make loud contact on a consistent basis. Overall Wicks is a solid athlete with an advanced feel to pitch and has an advanced offensive skill set.
