2020 LHP Jackson Phipps of Dallas, GA committed to USC Monday night. He’s the Gamecocks 6th commitment for the class and third pitcher. Here’s an evaluation of Phipps by PerfectGame from a September 11th outing: Phipps has a tall, solid frame and broad shoulders with a mature build. He does a great job of using his long lower half to push off the mound create good extension to the plate and does a great job of using his height to throw downhill. Phipps showed an impressive knack for working the lower half of the strike zone. He flashed two off speed pitches that still need some development, as he struggled to command both during his outing. His curveball has movement like a slurve, with big depth at times and slow, late 1-to-7 break. His changeup had decent fade, but he would sometimes slow his body down when throwing it. Phipps is young and definitely has time to develop his stuff.
