Doubt we sign him

llies said he wants to study biomedical engineering at UNC. But he’s also ranked the 213th prospect by minorleagueball.com — a blog run by the respected John Sickels — which would put him in the seventh round of the MLB draft.

Whether he goes to college or the big leagues will likely be determined by where he’s drafted — not that he’s looking that far ahead.

Brendan Illies is a 2015 C/RHP with a 6-1 190 lb. frame from Edgewood, WA who attends Puyallup HS. Strong mature athletic build. Very good defensive tools and actions, good footwork and lateral quickness, long loose whippy arm with very good carry, stays low and compact through release on throws, 1.89 in drills, 2.07 in game, accurate, can make the snap throws behind runners with shortened actions well. Right handed hitter, exaggerated inside the ball approach with a high extended finish, big wrapped start creates length, has lots of strength in his swing and creates bat speed, sees the ball very well and recognizes pitches, good game swings with good timing, mid field contact, has untapped power potential with adjustments. Also pitched, balanced leg raise delivery, quick arm coming through, works downhill and throws strikes with all pitches. Fastball topped out at 88 mph, some arm side running action, tended to slow arm on off speed pitches, showed all four pitches, best stuff was from the stretch. Strong versatile athlete with lots of tools and skills. Excellent student, verbal commitment to North Carolina. ~6/12/2014

"It's very tough," Illies said. "I've had many conversations with my parents about what makes sense for us as a family and for me, whether I can get better in college or whether I'm going to progress just as well in the minor league system."

From Pre-Draft Interview

Maybe he and our friend from the 2nd round can talk and come over together. I know I wouldn't want to be committing to a UNC athletic program right now that looks like it may be in for some rough waters ahead...

Sounds very unlikely but I'd dig it.

What has disapponted me so far but still 3 weeks to go is lack of the late rounders like last few years in Brosher, Berrios, and Burdick.
