Brody Brecht turning heads with scouts ahead of 2021 MLB Draft

Brody Brecht is topping out at 98 mph with his fastball. That's gotten the attention of the MLB, and could make for a tough decision in July.

ANKENY, Iowa — On Wednesday, Brody Brecht topped out at 98 miles per hour with his fastball and he never dipped out of the 90s.

He went a complete, game gave up two hits one walk, striking out 13 against Centennial.

Brecht has the attention of just about every MLB team out there, and will likely be drafted in mid-July.

But he's committed to play football and baseball at the University of Iowa.

Being an NFL player is his dream, so there's a lot that will go into a very tough decision should he get his name called during the 2021 MLB Draft.
