5th Round - Colin Poche: LHP, Marcus HS (TX)


Recommended Posts

99th in Texas, per Callis

http://espn.go.com/blog/dallas/high-school/tag/_/name/flower-mound-marcus

Earlier this season in Round Rock, home of the state baseball tournament, Flower Mound Marcus pitcher Colin Poch? displayed the superior ability that has made a believer of his coach.

The senior ace limited a historically strong Coppell to four hits in Marcus' 2-1 victory.

Those who weren't there to witness Poch?'s talent that day may also not be aware of his 0.00 ERA through 57 innings pitched.

“You’ll most likely see him pitching on TV one day,” Marcus coach Dustin Sykora.

Poch? has collected six wins in his senior year and has seen opposing runners cross the plate during his time on the mound. However, all runs under his watch have been unearned.

Sykora said his pitching star has everything you can ask for in a left-handed pitcher, including a tall frame that he’s grown into during his time at Marcus.

Poch? has committed to Arkansas, but Sykora believes he won't set foot on campus with major league aspirations looming in the pitcher's immediate future.

Hmmm...can't find much. From an Apr. 5 article about Arkansas signees:

Flower Mound (Texas) Marcus left-handed pitcher Colin Poche (6-2, 188) is rated No. 455 by Perfect Game and Van Horn is hopeful he makes it to campus. Van Horn joked about Poche not liking Arkansas getting swept by LSU last weekend.

“He's probably not too happy with us right now,” Van Horn said. “His dad went to LSU. He's a lefty and they're always in demand. He can throw strikes.”

His brother's scouting report on Poche (from March):

Has topped out at 92 and was throwing 88 consistently in his fall league. Has a good change-up and his slurve is becoming another strikeout pitch.

His summer coaches and others have compared him to Derek Holland at this point in his career.

Looks like he had a really strong senior season that may have moved him up the board.

Poche played in the WWBA World Championships last fall in Jupiter, Fla., and threw three shutout innings with six strikeouts. Poche also helped the D-BAT Mustangs to the 2011 Connie Mack World Series in Farmington, N.M.

Upon signing him to play at Arkansas, here is quote on Poche from Razorbacks head coach Dave Van Horn on the Arkansas Web site:

"Colin is an athletic left hander that can throw strikes," Van Horn said. "He's also an outstanding student. We feel he has a chance to come in and contribute right away, especially as a left-handed pitcher."
