Alex Greene  OF - 2020 - ,   Virginia

It was a loud start to the showcase for the young Virginia commit as he tied the event record with a top throw from the outfield at an impressive 98 mph.

Romo is already committed to Louisiana State yet he continues to elevate his game, especially behind the plate where he has a chance to be a special player.

Nate Savino  LHP - 2020 - ,   Virginia

Pithcing on the final day of the event, Savino continued the train of talented lefthanded pitchers and certainly has a bright future moving forward.

CJ Kayfus  1B - 2020 - ,   Miami

Joseph Dixon  RHP - 2020 - ,   Stanford

Dixon showed one of the faster arms of the event and given his uncommitted status, he had college coaches more than interested. Not only did he bump 91 mph with his fastball and live in the 88-91 mph range, he did a nice job of filling the zone with plane to his heater while mixing in a hard spinning curveball for strikes.

Asher Akridge  OF - 2020 - ,   Uncommitted

There's a very good chance that Akridge adds plenty of strength over the next three years though he already shows the type of tools that make college recruiters circle his name. He possesses plus sped with a 6.49 60-yard dash but also has lots of twitch to his swing and can already impact the ball to his pull side.

Chad Born  OF - 2020 - ,   Miami

There's a lot to like with the uncommitted Born who made the trip out from California and impressed everybody in attendance.

He also moves well defensively at third base and threw 89 mph across the diamond.

John (TJ) Curd  1B - 2020 - ,   Florida

The calling card for Curd is his strong, lefthanded swing and it's one that already helps him impact the ball hard to his pull side.

Ross Dunn  LHP - 2020 - ,   Kentucky

Dunn was very impressive on day one of the event, touching 90 mph early on and showing a changeup that has the makings of a future plus pitch at maturity.

Dalton Pearson  OF - 2020 - ,   Uncommitted

The former 14u PG Select Festival Participant, Pearson is a very fast twitch centerfielder with arm strength recorded up to 88 mph into the infield and a 6.69 second 60-yard dash. Pearson has a fast swing at the dish but the combination of the tools make him very interesting, with positives to add to almost every tool category.

Joel Perez Jr.  SS - 2020 - ,   UCF

The MVP of last year's PG Select 14u Festival, Perez continues to add strength to his frame and still shows smoothness to his hands defensively. He performed well with the bat in game finding the barrel with a loose stroke and projects well as he fills out physically.

Brooks Rice  RHP - 2020 - ,   Louisiana State

A long and projectable 6-3/170 righthander already committed to Louisiana State, Rice continues to bump his velocity and topped out at 90 mph in this most recent look. He shows a clean arm action and heavy downhill plane to his fastball while mixing in a curveball up to 77 mph with big depth through the zone.

Brayden Rowe  RHP - 2020 - ,   Alabama

Rowe is a good looking uncommitted prospect with a large frame, clean arm stroke, and a fastball that reaches 90 mph upon peak velocity. He maintains the velocity from a fairly low effort delivery and mixes in a tight rotating curveball that generated some swings and misses when buried low in the strike zone.

Orlando Salinas  SS - 2020 - ,   Oklahoma State

Lefthanded hitting middle infielders who are uncommitted and show big skill are always a hot commodity and Salinas is no exception. He moved well on his feet up the middle and shows twitch to his actions along with a strong arm, but also a fast lefthanded stroke with which he was able to impact the baseball to his pull side.

Anthony Shaver  OF - 2020 - ,   Florida State

Shaver is a talented righthanded bat and recent commit to Florida State who continues to improve every time we see him. After a loud round of batting practice Shaver continued to find the barrel in game and ran a 6.78 60-yard while throwing 87 mph from the outfield with clean actions.

Tyler Shelnut  SS - 2020 - ,   Florida

Shelnut is a solid ballplayer, currently committed to the Florida Gators, with intriguing tools on both sides of the ball for the young prospect. He has a fluid, extended swing path with some barrel feel and loft from a swing plane that plays to all fields while showing some arm strength up to 87 mph and being timed under 7.00 seconds in the 60-yard dash time.

Josh Shuler  OF - 2020 - ,   South Carolina

Though he didn't work out from the outfield, he moved well defensively in the outfield tracking down fly balls and also ran a 6.79 60-yard dash. An uncommitted lefthanded bat, Shuler is able to impact the baseball with a relatively low effort swing and connected for a double in game that he shot back up the middle with a 96 mph exit velocity.

Vince Smith  SS - 2020 - ,   Louisiana State

Smith was one of the all-around more athletic prospects, showing quality twitch and athleticism both in the box and at shortstop. The footwork and smoothness of the actions project nicely and he showed off improve arm strength all the while working with a short, direct, and controlled swing that results in a lot of barreled up contact.

Charlie Taylor  C - 2020 - ,   Tennessee

Taylor has proven to be one of the more adept catchers in the area with regards to his raw ability to catch and throw. He popped under a 2.0 second time during drills and has a fairly balanced swing with requisite bat speed and power potential, all of which culminate to describe a remarkably interesting and attractive uncommitted prospect.

Jordan Thompson  SS - 2020 - ,   Louisiana State

A loose and easy primary shortstop, Thompson showed nice two-way potential on the mound as well with a quick arm that helped run his fastball up to 89 mph with late life. Defensively he moves well with soft hands and showed a quick righthanded stroke with a nice feel for the barrel at present.

Carter Trice  SS - 2020 - ,   Old Dominion

Trice is a fascinating uncommitted prospect from Virginia, as his arm strength alone makes him a legitimate Division I prospect as he can throw up to 92 mph from the outfield. Trice turned in a 7.20 second 60-yard dash time while also showing a projectable swing from both sides of the plate.

Cade Udell  RHP - 2020 - ,   Duke

Cade Udell has the build of a power arm at 6-foot-4, 205-pounds and has the makings of a power arsenal. His arm stroke is both clean and easy and he's already up to 90 mph with late life through the zone and mixed three pitches for strikes with comfort and a replicated arm slot.

Ben Vespi  RHP - 2020 - ,   UCF

Vespi may not have showed a fastball north of 90 mph like other arms in attendance but he didn’t have to either as he mixed and matched three pitches for strikes with plenty of comfort. His arm action is short and quick, working downhill with his fastball that topped 89 mph but also spun it very well and maintained his release well on his changeup as well.

Jordan Walker  3B - 2020 - ,   Duke

Walker offers plenty of projectability at 6-4/194 with long limbs and broad shoulders. He ran a 6.89 60-yard dash and showed a strong arm across the infield as well as on the mound, bumping 87 mph from shortstop. He also swings it well from the right side and shows nice projection with present strength off the barrel.

Carson Wells  OF - 2020 - ,   Southern California

The younger brother of 2017 PG All-American Austin Wells, Carson is a very interesting player in his own right with plenty of fast twitch muscle and a very fluid and easy swing. The hands work very well through the hitting zone with requisite looseness and speed to get the barrel through the hitting zone on time and he showed of the speed with a 6.5 second 60-yard dash time.

Benjamin Wiegman  RHP - 2020 - ,   Louisville

Wiegman certainly looks the part at 6-foot-3, 200-pounds and has continued to refine his delivery and overall mechanics on the mound. After running a 6.69 60-yard dash, the Louisville commit ran his fastball up to 92 mph with a fast right arm and looks like there's still another jump or two left in the tank.


2021 Top Prospects

Blaze Jordan  1B - 2021 - ,   Mississippi State

Jordan came into the event with plenty of past success, notably due to his power that you simply don't find at this age. During his round of batting practice he launched three home runs, showing his strength with the bat along with his arm as he was up to 90 mph on the mound and threw an impressive 88 mph from first base.

Braylon Bishop  OF - 2021 - ,   Arkansas

Bishop showed very well throughout the first two days of the showcase and it won't be the least bit surprising if he continues to develop moving forward. Both strong and athletic, Bishop ran a 6.84 60-yard but it was with the bat he really impressed, driving the ball hard to his pull side while showing strong hands with extension and hard jump off the barrel.

Jordan Lawlar  SS - 2021 - ,   

Lawlar is an ultra-projectable shortstop from Texas who already stands 6-foot-1 but isn't near physical maturation yet, though his tools are plenty loud already. He offers a speed tool already (6.65 60-yard) that plays well down the line and up the middle and also handles the barrel well, driving the ball with a loose and easy stroke.

Irving Carter  RHP - 2021 - ,   Miami

Carter, a member of the 2017 PG Select Festival, came out and did what we've seen him do: fill the zone and get hitters out. His fastball was up to 90 mph with plane from a higher slot though it's his present feel for his off-speed that helps him stand out, highlighted by his changeup which he tripled up on in one particular at-bat.

Noah Smith  SS - 2021 - ,   Louisville

Coming out from Illinois, Noah Smith shows excellent potential on both sides of the ball and can already make his presence felt on the diamond. He's an above average athlete who ran a 6.70 60-yard, showed smooth and fluid actions in game up the middle, and offers a loose righthanded stroke which only projects as he continues to add strength to his frame.

Andrew Painter  RHP - 2021 - ,   Florida

Painter has taken big steps since last summer in terms of his arsenal and judging by what he showed at Lake Point, he isn't done developing. With a clean and online arm action, the future Gator was able to power the ball downhill from a higher slot while bumping 90 mph with a rather effortless release.

Juhlien Gonzalez  3B - 2021 - ,   Florida International

Strongly built at 5-foot-11, 175-pounds, Gonzalez does a nice job of incorporating his present strength into his righthanded swing which he put on display throughout the event. With quick hands, a leveraged path and a balanced stroke Gonzalez was able to impact the baseball regularly and also ran his fastball up to 86 mph.

Jayden Melendez  C - 2021 - ,   Florida International

Melendez continued to impress and left a loud impression at Lake Point connecting for one of three home runs, a no doubter to left field that jumped off the barrel. His righthanded stroke is a balanced one and allows for consistent barrel while showing sound tools behind the plate which include strong receiving skills.

Nick Anello  RHP - 2021 - ,   Miami

Players are always developing physically and in terms of their tools and both this hold true for Nick Anello. After working into the mid-80s last fall, the Miami commit came out running his fastball up to 91 mph with hard sinking life and a fast right arm while mixing in a couple of off-speed pitches to keep hitters off balance.

Ethan Alston  SS - 2021 - ,   

Alston put together a nice showcase overall, running a 6.80 60-yard and showing smooth hands, a quick transfer and solid arm strength across. His righthanded swing may be his loudest tool at present as he's able to drive the ball to all fields on a line with nice extension out front and quick hands.

Keegan Allen  OF - 2021 - ,   

Allen did a little bit of everything at the showcase and showed his athleticism throughout. A 6.89 runner, Allen showed plenty of arm strength from both the outfield (93 mph) and on the mound (89 mph) along with a balanced stroke and quick hands at the plate from the right side.

Jackson Baumeister  C - 2021 - ,   Florida State

A long and projectable backstop at 6-3/207, it's easy to see what the Florida State staff saw in the young two-way as he showed well on both sides of the ball. His arm strength is obvious both behind the plate (83 mph) and on the mound (90 mph) -where the velocity came easy- while also showing strong wrists and a gap-to-gap approach in the box.

Michael Braswell  SS - 2021 - ,   South Carolina

Braswell is listed as a primary shortstop with soft hands, plenty of athleticism and a strong arm across the diamond as well as a linear stroke with solid contact to all fields. On the mound is where he took the biggest jump though, running his fastball up to 88 mph with a loose arm and a late sinking changeup up to 78 mph.

Thomas Dilandri  OF - 2021 - ,   TCU

There weren’t too many players in attendance who were more physical than the Nevada native and more importantly he knows how to use that strength in his righthanded swing. Short and compact through the zone, Dilandri was able to impact the baseball with force and also turned in a sub-7 60-yard time while throwing 84 mph from the outfield.

Owen Flynn  RHP - 2021 - ,   

Flynn may not have lit up the radar guns like other arms who touched 90 or better, but it's only a matter of time before he does. Wth a full and loose arm stroke, the uncommitted Flynn filled the zone with his fastball but also spun it well and was able to land the 70 mph pitch for strikes at will.

Dorian Gonzalez  SS - 2021 - ,   Miami

Dorian Gonzalez, currently uncommitted, has a knack for finding the barrel in live action and did just that with a loose, easy swing from the left side. He moves well defensively up the middle with light actions and soft hands and an accurate arm across the diamond.

Trevor Haskins  SS - 2021 - ,   Stanford

Haskins showed some of the more fluid defensive actions, moving well on his feet with lightness and soft hands out front with an accurate arm across the diamond. His swing will continue to develop as he adds strength though he already shows fluidity to his path and can turn the barrel well through the zone.

Bryan Loriga  3B - 2021 - ,   Florida International

The big tool with Loriga is his righthanded bat and it's one that continues to impress each time we see him. A FIU commit, Loriga does a nice job of creating extension out front and separation at the point of contact with jump off the barrel, especially to his pull side.

Justin Quintana  OF - 2021 - ,   Florida International

Strongly built at 5-10/175, Quintana has continued to strength his frame and it shows in his righthanded stroke with hard jump off the barrel and a loose, full swing path through the zone. Along with the whip to his barrel, Quintana also ran a 6.76 60-yard dash and moved well in the outfield.

Alex Ulloa  SS - 2021 - ,   Miami

Physically built at 5-foot-11, 170-pounds and already committed to Miami, Ulloa continues to take his game to the next level. He's a primary shortstop who possesses big arm strength and threw 91 mph across the diamond but also creates nice torque in his swing with leverage to his path and hard jump coming off the barrel.
