Stankiewicz, who has signed on to play at Arkansas as part of their blue-chip class, offers projection thanks to a 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame and some athleticism. He sits in the 89-92 mph range with more velocity on the way. His best breaking ball is a firm slider that has flattened in games but has tilt and late break. The right-hander also offers a curveball with good shape. As with most prep arms, his changeup needs a lot of development.

"Teddy's fastball usually sits 90-93 with movement and he can really locate," (Razorback head coach Dave Van) Horn said. "He's very polished for his age. We're hoping to get him to campus and he'll have a chance to get in the rotation early and be a contributor right away."
