The Uncommitted Spotlight Series continues as we have started the '24 CIF High School baseball season Prep Baseball California is now highlighting some of the top uncommitted class of '25 athletes. The players featured are pulled directly from our '25 Class Rankings. These JR year players are ones that college coaches and fans should be keeping their eyes on over the coming months.

We invite you to get to know them through the eyes of our Prep Baseball California staff of scouts and the data-backed numbers collected at our events with our partnered companies. TrackMan, Blast Motion, Swift Performance, and Visual Edge provide comparable data to project and evaluate players. All of these systems come together to give a clear picture at what colleges will get when a players steps onto their campus.

Today, we put the spotlight on a NorCal '25 SS/2B Tino Vasell from College Park High School. Vasell is a wiry framed athlete who profiles to play up the middle on the infield dirt with an offensive profile. He has room to add strength/athleticism to his frame which will help him tap into his tools as he continues to mature. The swing is direct in the hand path to contact with some lift through contact while showing torque in the turn which shows off solid raw power up to 91.3 MPH on max exit velocity with consistent hard contact up to 86.3 MPH on average showing the ability  to collect extra base hits. His feet and hands are solid on the infield with feel to play both 1 and 2 handed, but can improve as he continues to get more athletic and play lower with his hips. Arm shows plenty of strength with accuracy to stay on the left side of the INF dirt with accuracy and comfort throwing from different arm slots, but may need to polish his accuracy to stick on left side of the dirt, but plenty of strength for 2B. As a solid left hand hitter who can stick on the infield dirt and potentially remain on the left side of the dirt Vasell is a name that college programs should add to their '25 recruiting boards and be tracking this spring/summer going into the fall.

Scouting Report


California State GamesAs a left-hand hitting middle infielder, Vasell gets a leg up on many players, simply because the game values left-handed hitters more. What the game values more than left-handed hitters, is GOOD hitters, no matter the side of the plate they hit on. Vasell has displayed high level barrel control and bat to ball skills. He's a gritty competitor and we've seen him grind pitchers before eventually getting a mistake and flipping a hit into the middle of the field. The other raw tools (good arm, up to 85) aren't eye-popping, but the best tool to have, is the ability to hit. He can.
