With the changing of the recruiting landscape that was presented in 2020, Perfect Game wants to continue our efforts to provide a spotlight and platform for uncommitted players to showcase their talents. Every week we will highlight players who our scouts saw and were impressed by, showing their talents that will certainly translate to the next level.

As October nears, so to do the WWBA Underclass World Championship as well the WWBA World Championships which boasts rosters loaded with uncommitted talent and as always you can follow @PG_Uncommitted on Twitter for updated looks at prospects from all PG events. 

Eli Maddox (2022 Orange Park, FL) is a high character, high academic backstop. He is an advanced and gifted receiver with a strong and accurate arm. There is some thump in his righthanded bat and the hit tool is coming along very nicely as he hit .298 this summer against top competition. The leadership skills and ability to handle a staff top off the package nicely.

Sean Smith (2021 Pascagoula, MS) could have the most power of any uncommitted player left in the country! He is a physical 6-foot-1, 205 pound first baseman with huge righthanded bat speed. He raked at the Perfect Game National and then followed it up with a .325 clip on the summer with plenty of extra base hits and walks to add to the profile. This came against premier arms while hitting in the middle of one of the top lineups in the county.

Charlie Condon (2021 Marietta, GA) is a tall and a wiry strong 6-foot-5, 195 pound first baseman with excellent coordination and feel for the barrel. The ability to hit for average and power while coming up clutch in big spots should make him a hot commodity. He absolutely mashed this summer, hitting .407 with a 1.241 OPS. Add his sixteen extra base hits and five home runs and you have one of the best middle of the order caliber prospects left on the market.

Bradke Lohry (2021 Trinity, FL) is by definition, a winner. The shifty middle infielder has great first step quickness to go along with huge instincts. He has plenty of arm to stay on the left side of the infield but has excellent defensive versatility. His .351 summer average and 1.103 OPS go right in line with his compact swing and excellent eye-hand coordination. The polish could find him starting from day one at the next level.

Danny Baez (2022 Oviedo, FL) has a quick lefthanded stroke with advanced barrel skills. He has an all fields approach and a swing that's geared to hit line drives now but will add power as the strength comes. He hit .328 on the summer and consistently grinded out at bats while producing at every stop. He can play all three infield spots with sure hands and a confident demeanor.

Zach Ehrhard (2021 Thonotosassa, FL) is an explosive athlete with a chiseled 5-foot-11, 175 pound build. He would fit perfectly fine on the grass or dirt at the next level with a high-level understanding of the game. He hit .455 this summer with a 1.119 OPS. He has real twitch and huge upside. There is also a different level of toughness that the youngster brings and it seems to be contagious.

Jaden Anderson (2022 Duluth, GA) is a solid ball of muscle and the strength translates well at the plate and on the bases. The 5-foot-10, 180 pound outfielder goes all out on both sides of the ball. After a monster summer when he hit .590 with six doubles and a home run, he should easily be one of the top follows during the fall. There is some thunder in the barrel with a profile that could lead to a top of the lineup menace or middle of the order run producer.

Al Holguin (2021 Chicago, IL) has the type of strength and bat speed that should lead to monster power at the next level. His lefthanded swing is already producing lift and the accuracy with the barrel impressed all summer. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds he brings a physical presence to the middle of the order, but the production was equally impressive as he swung to a tune of .424 with a 1.153 OPS and impressively swatted an extra base hit 20% of his at bats.

Colton Sundloff (2021 Urda, UT) finished the summer on a high note, pitching in the low-90s while peaking at 94 mph with heavy movement on the heater. The righthander has a tough low slot with feel for a three-pitch mix. He could be used as a shut-down arm at the back end of the 'pen but also showed some stamina that gives him real promise as a starter. Sundloff can turn over innings in a hurry!

Robert Evans (2022 Bronx, NY) has a strong and powerful base to his 6-foot-1, 206 pound frame and he uses his legs and core well to create effortless velocity. The southpaw ended the summer in impressive fashion sitting 87-90 at the 16U World Series from a low 3/4 slots that helps run/ride action. His curveball shows promise with 1-7 sweeping action while his matching arm speed and release on his changeup made it a go-to offering.

Keagan Perez (2021 Casselberry, FL) has a slender and long 6-foot-3, 160 pound frame that has not started to hold weight/strength yet. The righthander has a quick and whippy arm that produces mid-80s velocity. He has a sharp curveball and a feel to turn over the changeup, both with good arm speed. He threw fifteen innings this summer with a 19:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. The command and swing and miss traits led to an eye-popping 0.40 WHIP.
