Associate Head Coach/Pitching Coach Alan Dunn on Jaden Hill:
"Jaden is probably the most versatile athlete in the recruiting class. He was a highly recruited quarterback in addition to being a pitcher/third baseman coming out of high school. He possesses a mid-90s fastball and a swing-and-miss changeup with excellent ability to pound the strike zone. His confidence, competitiveness, and maturity on the mound should allow him to make a quick transition to the college game and help him contribute at a high level to the pitching staff."
