Max Galvin OF / LHP / IMG Academy, FL / 2021

Standout at the Florida Select 

Very physical and lean athletic frame. He has a strong lower half that he uses well. Has some length and stiffness at times in the swing, but loose, quick hands and present strength more than makes up for it. Defensively, his athleticism plays well with above average routes in the outfield. Very intriguing upside for an uncommitted 2021.

Sean Hermann RHP / OF / Durant, FL / 2021

Standout at the Florida State Games

Wiry frame with advanced body control. The USF commit works with high energy and attacks hitters on the mound. Up tempo delivery with a low 3/4 slot, tilts the upper body creating torque and gets over the front side with force and a quick arm. Loose action to the arm with potential for a velocity jump as he touched 89 mph with the fastball and couples it with a sweeping low-mid 70s breaking ball. Adds in a 79-81 mph CH to boot.
