No. 22 Raffaele Velazquez, c, Long Beach, Calif.
Commitment: Uncommitted 

Already pretty well known on the national circuit as a 13u PG Select Festival alum, Velazquez has continued to up his offensive production, adding notable strength to his frame. Velazquez, who’s now listed at 6-foot-1, 209-pounds, has continued to hit all summer, showing exceptional strength at the point of contact. The 14u National Showcase was simply a continuation from 14u World Series, showing loose hands and big-time bat speed, impacting the ball as well to the opposite field as he does to the pull side. He’s also refined behind the plate with sound actions and big-time arm strength.
