SS Irving, TX Vanderbilt Jesuit College Prep Dallas Tigers
High level athlete up the middle; above average run tool; short, repeatable RH swing with lots of barrel and jump coming off; stood out at 16u WWBA. A PG National standout with excellent defensive actions and the body and swing that project big, but already showing in game production.

SS Winder, GA Tennessee Winder-Barrow Team Elite Prime
Physically impressive with smooth actions & a good arm across; strong RH swing & can hit for average & power. Up to 96 mph on the bump, too. Exceptional at the PGHS Showdown showing power, speed and a refined defensive approach.

OF Boston, MA Vanderbilt Dexter Southfield Beast Mode Prime 2021
Physical build with standout tools; big present power & more to come; big performance at WWBA Underclass with the bat; up to 92 mph as well. The Elite tools were on displays at the PG National and pretty polished in the box too. Big raw velocity on the mound, as well, peaking at 96.

RHP Somers Point, NJ Florida Mainland Reg BPC Oilers
Up to 94 at PG Underclass All American Games; electric arm speed from tough slot, generates big life to FB; slider bites hard & late in low-80s. Up to 97 at the PG National and 98 a the PG Elite. He may have the best arm speed in the class. Very good athlete too.

RHP Pompano Beach, FL Florida Calvary Christian Academy Elite Squad 17u National
Up to 94 mph at PG Junior National, controls delivery well & fills the zone; fastball jumps and more to come, feel for CB & SL. Up to 96 at the PG National with a 4-pitch mix and still has projection to go along with his current polish.

SS Wake Forest, NC North Carolina State Wake Forest Dirtbags Haynes
