College Commitments

None

Top 22s

Roman Webb, Catcher, 2022, 5' 7" 190lbs. R/R - Roman is pure baseball and coach's dream. Excellent student, excellent teammate, and not only the captain of the team, but captain of all the captains on campus. 

Top 23s

James Aken, Pitcher/1B, 2023, 5'7" 180lbs. R/R - James is a throwback competitor who is fierce.  On the football field, he plays like he's 6'4" 230, and he has the same kind of confidence and swagger on the baseball field that can be intimidating. Definitely hits for power.

Top 24s

Isaiah Peterson, Pitcher/3B, 2024, 5'8" 180lbs. R/R, Isaiah pitched well and hit well as a freshman last year, but was a bit overweight. He worked hard this offseason and lost about 40 pounds and got much stronger. His hard work and commitment make him a good fit to be a team leader once Roman graduates. 

Top 25s

Mason Harris, P/Util, 2025, 5'10" 160lbs. R/R Mason is a very good athlete who throws in the low 80's as a freshman.  He is one of the fastest kids in the school and is a very good hitter.  He will likely play baseball at a high level after high school.

Dylan Brown, Util/P, 2025, 5'10" 150lbs. R/R Dylan has worked very hard this off-season knowing that the Varsity team may need him.  He is a very good athlete, and like Harris, he can play anywhere.  His baseball IQ is very high for as young as he is and he is already surpassing upperclassmen in many areas this off-season.
