Colin Dunlap reports that Stetson Allie is likely to begin the season at State College rather than West Virginia, and suggests that one reason he has been held back is due to his control:
"He's all over the place," one of the sources said. "The kid throws so darned hard, but sometimes has no idea where it's going. I mean, no idea."
Allie has hit 100 mph on occasion, and his fastball sits in the mid-90s.
Kyle Stark, director of player development, said of Allie's progression: "He was originally held back for a number of issues, ultimately being because of where his foundation is. This led to some struggles with control. However, he has made huge strides with that. He is not in extended simply because of an inability to throw strikes."
