Atkins, part of a solid Elon recruiting class, has caught the eye of scouts in a down year for the state's prep class by having the best fastball in the area. Some scouts see a mature high school pitcher, strong and sturdy at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, but others see some projection left. He throws an 88-92 mph fastball from a three-quarters slot that gives him good sink. The arm angle also makes his 77-80 mph breaking ball rather slurvy, and at times he struggles to stay on top of it. His feel for a changeup comes and goes, but teams that like him see him as a power sinker/slider pitcher down the line.
