Jordon Banfield
Arizona Scouting Director

The Freshman Fall Classic gave us a look at what appears to be a very strong 2021 class in the state. The following are reports on three early standouts in the freshman class that should be heavily recruited prospects as they continue to develop. As always please keep us posted on any commitments/news via email at [email protected] or DM on Twitter at @PBRArizona

Brock Selvidge LHP / OF / Hamilton, AZ / 2021

Uncommitted. 6-foot-2 165-pounds. Listed as a switch hitter but hit RH vs. RHP. Showed combination of advanced approach and bat speed that produced consistent hard contact to the middle of the field.  Athletic, projectable body with plenty of room on frame to fill out and get stronger.  Highest level follow. Interested to see him on the mound.

Beau Ankeney 1B / 3B / Desert Vista, AZ / 2021

Uncommitted. 6-foot-2 210-pounds. Extremely physical for a freshman.  Showed off very advanced rhythm and timing at the plate. Generates power with bat speed, not just strength. Defense should continue to improve over time.  Bat will be carrying tool. 



Barrett Skaugrud SS / 2B / Sandra Day O'Connor, AZ / 2021

Uncommitted. 6-foot 140-pounds. Terrific feel for the game. Executes at a level well beyond his years. Showed strong middle infield actions and the ability to throw from multiple angles. Arm strength will improve as he matures physically.  High waist, projectable body. Quiet, advanced approach, barrel stays in the zone a long time. Will be high-level prospect as he adds strength and continues to fill out.
