Another arm out of the Tampa pipeline.

PBR Florida

FSU’s 2023 class got off to a big start from last summer through the fall. The class already has five top 100 players and all eight commits rank in the top 235 in the nation. The class is filled with athletes who can move all over the field. Many are also two-way players that can make impacts on both sides of the ball. Florida State has added another two-way athlete to the class in Andrew Duncan.

Duncan comes out of Bishop McLaughlin HS. The most recent ‘Nole continues a lengthy pipeline out of Tampa, Florida. Duncan is a RHP and OF, with the upside likely coming on the bump. He stands 6’0, 160 pounds and has ran sub 7.0 60-yard dash times.

It’s hard not to see the projection on the bump out of Duncan. The RHP has a wiry frame with lots of room to add to. He has a quick arm down the hill in a below average effort delivery. The fastball has been up to 88 MPH and can sit in the 86-88 MPH range. The spin rates are also above average, having been up to 2300 RPM. He also flashes two variations of a breaking ball with a CB and a SL.

The ceiling comes on the mound, but he can still be a highly effective outfielder. Duncan has a compact swing with quick hands through the zone. He presents a line drive approach at the field, and isn’t afraid to use the backside of the field. As he physically matures, more power will develop in the bat.
