Caden Turrell OF / OF / Port St. Joe, FL / 2021

At 5-foot-11, 160 pounds, Turrell was the best athlete in attendance. Ran a 6.88 60 yard dash and showed overall quick twitch and athleticism. Defensively, the athleticism plays well in the outfield. Comes through the ball well and shows a quick release. Also showed a quality first step and above average range in the outfield. Topped out at 84 mph. Offensively, he can get roational at time, really cutting himself off and limiting his natural hand speed. When he does work through extension, he has very quick hands and the ball jumps off the bat at extension, especially to the pull side. Overall, very intriguing athlete with a high ceiling.  

 

 

Josh Butts OF / OF / Port St. Joe, FL / 2019

Stands at 5-foot-8, 170 pound. Ran a 7.16 60 yard dash. Showed accurate throws with some carry from the outfield, topping out at 79 mph. Offensively, he his with a wide base, which keeps him simple and balanced. Can prevent him from clearing his backside at times, but when he does, the path is level through the zone and shows some present gap-to-gap strength. Registered an exit velocity of 84 mph.  

 

 

Felix Abel Marquez OF / 2B / Niceville, FL / 2020

Stands at 5-foot-8, 170 pounds. Ran a 7.32 60 yard dash. From the outfield, he has some length in the arm action, which can take some extra time to release, but throws showed carry and he topped at 80 mph. Offensively, hits from a balanced setup with a long stride and short load, maintained balance. Showed a pull approach at the plate with early timing, barrel worked uphill through the zone, flashed the ability to elevate the ball for power, 88 mph exit velocity off a tee.  

 

 

Zavion Anderson OF / 3B / Booker T. Washington, FL / 2020

Standing at 5-foot-9, 170 pounds he is a stocky, strong athlete with room to grow. Ran a 7.2 60 yard dash, but could see that getting better. Defensively, the athleticism plays well in the outfield, where he showed overall sound actions. Topped out at 79 mph from the outfield.  Really stood out more offensively, where his bat is by far the best tool. The swing and setup is very simple. The present strength plays and has above average bat speed. He showed a lot of potential as he was aggressive through the zone, especially to the pull side, with some pull side power.  A follow that could make a jump and then making a bigger impact.  

 

 

Jaxon Topel OF / 2B / Niceville, FL / 2021

Stands at 5-foot-11, 165 pounds. Ran a 7.71 60 yard dash. Showed sound, athletic actions in the outfield, topping at 84 mph. Has some stiffness in the infield, but the hands worked well, also topping at 84 mph. Would see jumps with continued improved strength and athleticism. Offensively, he stands upright and tall. Starting open he showed the ability to stay balanced and clear his back side. He has loose wrists and shows potential with added strength.  

 

 

Angel Alverio OF / SS / Niceville Senior, FL / 2021

With a stocky, strong frame at 5-foot-7, 160 pounds he impressed more and more as the day went along. Running a 7.14 60 yard dash, with more speed to come as the gait worked well. Defensively, he shows a compact arm action from the outfield, with accurate throws topping at 78 mph. In the infield, he works with rhythm from the ground up. Has confidence in the hands, could improve the first step quickness, but overall is a very solid defender with upside. Offensively, he has a simple and balanced swing with some whippiness through the zone. Stays compact and has gap-to-gap, line drive approach with a high offensive ceiling.
