WWBA Soph. Uncommitted Names Part 1
The WWBA Sophomore World Championship is set to begin year five this upcoming weekend as Fort Myers, Fla. will once again become the epicenter of the amateur baseball world as players and college recruiters alike from across the nation will descend upon Southwest Florida. National Scouting Director Jered Goodwin takes a deeper dive into the uncommitted players who'll be in attendance, looking at 15 players ranked outside the top-500, taking a deeper dive into the rankings with some uncovered gems. Follow along all weekend as our scouts will continue to provide top-of-the-industry coverage just as they have all spring and summer. 

Jackson Godfrey (2024, Greensboro, N.C.) is a mauler in the left-handed batters box. He was consistent from start to finish on the circuit doing damage to all parts of the yard. The strength combined with the eye-hand coordination give a very interesting offensive profile with a very high ceiling from a run-production standpoint. 

Nick Wimberly (2024, Merritt Island, Fla.) is an athletic right-handed pitcher with a clean delivery that he repeats exceptionally well. The ball has some zip out of the hand and he is already showing upper-80s peaks. He controls the zone and misses bats showing an advanced feel for setting up hitters and simply attacks hitters. 

Brady Jones (2024, Gaffney, S.C.) there is real quickness to the shoulder with obvious upside from a velocity standpoint. Another youngster with upper-80s peaks and the ball really carries out of the hand and can win with the fastball. The heater isn’t all though, he can spin the ball and turns the changeup pretty well. 

Landon Parker (2024, Burlington, N.C.) has a classic look for a backstop and the tools to back things up. He is a solid receiver with quality arm strength and accuracy. There is strength in the bat with pull-side power potential. It's a very interesting overall profile and the strong frame should help him keep the offensive upside. 

Ryan Maggy (2024, Peru, N.Y.), a lean and high-waisted athlete, looks the part. He also produces all over the diamond from his three-pitch mix bumping the mid-80s to his short stroke and high production offensively. The left-handed stroke has good whip and should produce both average and power in the future.  

Carlos Morales (2024, Valrico, Fla.) has lots of strength in his barrel-chested frame, which produces a ton of in-game juice. He is very accurate with the barrel and the ball flies to both gaps with plenty of carry. Behind the plate he shows soft hands and a solid IQ that should help lead staffs for a long time. 

Andrew Hart (2024, Virginia Beach, Va.) has a compact and athletic build and is a good runner with good instincts in the outfield. Offensively, the wrists work and he explodes the hands to the ball, shooting line drives hard to the middle of the field. He should fit perfectly as a disruptor at the top of an order. 

Hector Roca (2024, Homestead, Fla.) is pretty advanced behind the plate and is already displaying good catch-and-throw skills during game play. The bat is developing but there is plenty of potential though, as he has shown big pop when the barrel plays out front. Given the young look and a frame that can add lots of strength, it seems like the future is very bright. 

Jack Nance (2024, McLean, Va.) has a lively 6-foot-4, 175-pound frame and you can dream on the upside that the righty clearly possesses. The arm speed and length that helps the mid-80s fastball play up will continue to bump up in a big way as he matures. The breaker and changeup both are solid pitches as well. He can swing it a bit too. 

Brenden Callahan (2024, Lake Worth, Fla.) has a proportioned athletic frame with some strength to it that helps him stay compact and repeat the delivery. He has been up to 88 mph with the heater and the ball jumps hard. There is plenty of swing-and-miss, in part because of a tightly-spun curveball that shows solid depth. 

Coy Argo (2024, Commerce, Ga.) shows there is a ton of core strength in the strong frame and he really uses it as he has shown early all-fields juice. The powerful right-handed stroke is plenty accurate and it's impressive to watch a young power prospect drive balls the other way like Argo is capable of doing. 

Danny Sastre (2024, Miami, Fla.) has a fun profile as an athletic catcher that can hit, but there is also high defensive ability all over the field if needed. The right-handed bat shows some twitch that allows hit to impact balls to all fields. Sastre has a knack for barreling the ball and handles velocity well. 

Sam Downey (2024, Winter Springs, Fla.) has a lot to like with his quick feet, recovery skills, and quick release behind the plate. The body has lots of life to it and will fill out nicely. There is solid bat-to-ball skills to go with the defensive prowess as well, as the right-handed swing is on time quite a bit. 

Seamus Gallagher (2024, Wesley Chapel, Fla.) has a chance to make big strides. The right-handed arm is quick and loose, producing low-effort mid-80s heat. He is still harnessing the athleticism but the ceiling is high. There is two-way potential though, with length and lift on the offensive side. This will be fun to track. 

Jason Bello (2024, Lehigh Acres, Fla.) is a winner. The jack-of-all-trades can run the fastball up in the mid-80s with a solid three-pitch mix and competes hard. He is a high-level defender with quick feet and soft hands. On the offensive side, he produces in a big way and does it against top-level pitching. The barrel skills are there and he is already showing some early thump form the right side.
