He's 6'7" and throws a fastball close to 100 miles an hour. He goes by J-Mo. Jameson Taillon of The Woodlands is the number one pitching prospect in the nation, and on Monday, J-Mo went number two in the Major League draft to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The right hander is just 18 years old, but he is a commander of the strike zone of a seasoned veteran. Bryce Harper, the number one pick in the draft, went to Washington. He caught Taillon when the two played for Team USA against Cuba.

Taillon struck out 17. Harper said J-Mo was amazing.

Being the number two pick means big bucks, but Taillon also was recruited by Rice to pitch for the Owls next year. We know Wayne Graham would love to have him.
