Megill on the mound
By Andrew Knepper
Trevor Megill out of Marina (Huntington Beach, Calif.) is a towering presence on the mound. Standing in at 6-foot-7, 230 pounds he has an inning-eater frame and a solid fastball with a good downhill plane.
During this game he was sitting comfortably between 88-90 with his fastball, his only breaking ball was clocked it at 78 mph and a changeup that was 83 mph. Megill has the durable frame college coaches and pro scouts like to see and with his size you can see his velocity picking up in the future. He was a two-year Area Code Games member.
Megill will be forgoing his senior high school season by graduating early to attend Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. This seems to be a starting trend among this 2012 graduating class as we have seen C.J. Hinojosa out of Klein Collins (Spring, Texas) high leave early for Texas, Chris Harvey out of Germantown Academy (Fort Washington, Pa.) left early for Vanderbilt and Fernando Perez out of Otay Ranch (Chula Vista, Calif.) is leaving for Central Arizona Community College.
