CLICK HERE to take a look at this week’s National Buzz. With that in mind, let’s take an in depth look at the Florida prospects who have committed to colleges, with detailed scouting information.

Todd Lott, 1B, First Coast, 2016

Todd Lott7/30/15- Committed to Louisiana Lafayette 6/5/15 - Uncommitted rising senior. 6-foot-4, 215 pound outfielder with a strong muscular athletic body on a big frame. Very athletic strong kid that will improve with reps. I got a quick look at him and he looked like he had athletic actions in the outfield. Showed some bat speed and strength at the plate. Will definitely need to see more of him but he certainly passes the eye test. The 6-foot-4 200 lb. first baseman ran a 7.4 60 with an 80 mph exit velo at the North Florida Prospect ID. At the plate, Lott showed impressive power hitting a few balls out during his BP session.

Greg Lewandoski, SS, Spruce Creek, 2017
Kent State

Greg Lewandoski6/23/15 - 5-foot-9, 160 pound middle infielder with an athletic live body on a medium size frame. More of an offensive guy but showed very good actions with soft hands. Light on his feet with sound fielding mechanics. Has enough arm for the left side of the infield but more of a second basemans’ arm. Lacks ideal range for short stop but can make all of the routine plays and plenty of bat for third base. Short quick stroke with good hitters hands and a very good approach. Gap to gap type, doubles hitter with average ML power. Front side stays on ball well. Hands stay inside ball with a good path. Uses the whole field. Advanced young hitter. Aggressive on the bases with pretty good speed. Has good first step quickness. Ran a 6.84 60. 89 mph exit bat speed velocity. 81 mph infield velocity.

Scouting Report- Uncommitted in senior. 5-foot-11 180 pounds with an a lean, athletic, and strong frame. Quick arm, high 3/4 slot. Cuts himself off slightly in landing but attacks hitters and shows good pitchability. 86-88 mph FB. 76-77 mph CB. 81 mph CHG.

Tyler Santana, RHP, Coral Gables, 2016
Jacksonville University

Scouting Report- Thick strong mature body. Fastball consistently in the 87-89 range with some run and sink. CV is a 3/4 breaker that he occasionally gets around. He pounded the zone with both pitches, with some deception in his delivery and good arm speed. Arm works well and his a little more velocity in there.

Elijah Gill, OF, University Christian, 2017
University of Central Florida

7/13/15- Uncommitted incoming junior. 6-foot-1 185 pounds with a lean, athletic, projectable and loose body. Slightly open at the plate and relaxed. Small separation for his load with a hand hitch. Easy swing with a slight uppercut plane.

4/28/15- Uncommitted junior. 6-foot-2 175 pounds with a lean, athletic, and projectable body. Arm goes straight back after he breaks and he lands in line. Quick-twitch guy. Turns in with his high leg kick. High ¾ arm slot. Fairly loose arm. 81-85 mph FB with some arm side run. 65-68 mph ¾ breaking curve. Curve has good depth and breaks two planes. Good 73-75 mph CHG that is deceptive and uses the same arm speed as his fastball. 3 IP, 1 ER, 1 K against Hillsborough.

Tyler Dyson, RHP, Braden River, 2016
University of Florida

3/26/15- Uncommitted junior. 6-foot-2 205 pounds, Projectable, athletic, and strong body. Strong legs. Might have to move to 3B because of size. At the plate he gets a good separation and has a nice swing plane. Ball jumps off his bat. Loose, athletic actions in the field and on the mound. Loose arm. Over the top arm slot with a good downward plane on his fastball. 86-89 mph FB. 72-74 mph CR with a ¾ break that is sharp when he stays on top of it.

Anthony Mulrine, C, St. Thomas Aquinas, 2016
Samford University

3/16/15 - 6-foot-1, 220 pound catcher that played DH last night.  Coaches say he’s a very good defender. Good catcher’s body – big, loose, and physical.  Easy, physical swing connected for a long home run last night – looks like he can swing the pole. If the defensive skills are there, he’s a solid D1 prospect.

Ethan Koehler, LHP, West Orange, 2016
Campbell University

3/16/15 - Tall lean loose projectable body with long loose arms and legs. Lose arm at a ¾ to low ¾ slot. Lands in line with a head snap at release. Fast ball has tail action at 83-85 mph. Curve ball had a slurvey break at 71-73 mph. Struggled to repeat it. Was better when he stayed on top and through it. Will throw harder with physical maturity.
