Clinton Hollon is ready to take the big leap with University of Kentucky

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

Clinton Hollon is a talent that is hard to find. Hollon, who has played for Woodford County has committed to the University of Kentucky.

Kentucky has not been lucky enough to land a great pitcher in many years. They tend to recruit more players that play other positions. Hollon has loads of talent. He has a fastball that was clocked at 97 mph, and likes to change up his pitching strategies.

Hollon has been among different players that may decide to enter the MLB draft before he finishes high school. This has been a recurring concern among many people. As we seen in recent years, the age limit with going pro has increased. You need to be 18 years of age and completed at least one year in college.

Clinton needs to be molded more. He needs to improve by using more curveballs and not relying on just a strike out. He has a tendency to get down on himself, and  needs people around him that can encourage him when he is down and let him know the areas that he needs to improve in.

Clinton just needs to focus not just on baseball but also school. School is a very important factor for anybody, including a high school athlete that has MLB talent. The pressure of being the best can be very exhausting. That exhaustion can effect a players attitude and the way he or she plays.

Clinton has a long way to go, to even be considered as an elite pitcher. As for now, he has all the talent to make it in this league.
