Commitment Tracker

We take a look at some of the players who have committed from the 2019 class, all ranked within the top 15 and can offer an immediate impact once they get on campus.

With only 12 of the 50 prospects ranked in BC, there is a unique opportunity for college coaches to get in and fins some talent available that you may not get in other states.

Madjik Mackenzie RHP / SS / John Oliver, BC / 2019

Committed: New Mexico JC

Report: Mackenzie is a legit two-way player from the Coquitlam Reds and has committed to New Mexico JC in Hobbs, New Mexico. Madjik was a stand out last year dominating on the mound and at the plate with the bat. He comes at you when he’s  on the mound with a fastball that works in the 84-86 range and we can see that number increasing over winter and into 2019. The secondary stuff plays as he can throw his change up in any count with a slider that he can throw for strikes. At the plate has has an unorthodox load but generates good bat speed and has gap to gap power and occasionally will go deep. Overall a real nice grab for New Mexico and look for Mackenzie to be one of the top players in the province this summer.

Brandon Nicoll C / OF / Langley Senior, BC / 2019

Committed: Galveston JC

Report: The 10th ranked prospect in BC, Nicoll has committed to Galveston JC in Texas for the fall next year. Nicoll has the chance to be an impact bat with above average bat speed and an advanced approach at the plate. He gets good extension through the zone with present power in his strong 6-foot, 190-pound frame. His defense has improved with his footwork and range, along with his glove trending upwards.

Taisei Yahiro LHP / OF / Yale, BC / 2019

Committed: Yavapai JC

Report: The top left-handed arm in our 2019 class, Yahiro is out of the Fraser Valley Cardinals and is a huge addition the Yavapai staff. He was a highly sought after arm with his great makeup and demeanor on the mound to compliment his pitching arsenal. His fastball is in the 84-86 range and he throws a slower curveball with good depth and a slightly above average change up. He had a bit of a coming out party in Jupiter this year dominating 2 outings not giving up a run and striking out 19, mainly thanks to his deceptive fastball and ability to fill it up. A guy that seems to have that “IT” factor, look for Yahiro to continue to be a top arm next year and for years to come.

Ryan Beitel SS / RHP / Langley, BC / 2019

Committed: UBC

Report: 6-foot-2, 180-pound shortstop will stay close to home to play for the UBC Thunderbirds and Head Coach Chris Pritchett. Beitel is athletic and toolsy and flashes glimpses of being a complete player at a very high level. He has actions up the middle to stick at shortstop and some quick twitch at the plate. He’ll show some pop from the right-side but still needs to polish his swing and be a little more consistent. Beitel’s tools play up in game and is someone who will grow both physically and from a skill standpoint with a very high ceiling. Look for him to continue to make noise both in league play this coming summer, and once he steps on campus.
