Jared Cenal, RHP, Tampa Catholic, 2016
Creighton University

3/31/15 - Uncommitted junior. 6-foot-4 170 pounds with a tall, lanky, and projectable body. Quick motion. Takes ball out in line and he lands in line. High ¾ arm slot with a loose working arm. Threw a four seam and two seam, both had arm side run. Two seam runs down and in. Two seam was 83-84 mph and four seam was 85-86 mph. 73-75 slow slider that has more width than depth but breaks early. A bit flat. Needs work on off speed. Velocity should increase with added strength and maturity. Saw jump in velocity in Jupiter sitting 87-90 topping out at 91 mph.

Ben Rowdon, SS, DeLand, 2016
Lake Sumter State

3/5/15 - 5-foot-11, 150 pound infielder with a lean loose athletic body. Very good actions with soft hands in the infield. Arm is slightly below avg and needs to get a little stronger to stay at SS down the road. Has plenty of range and appears to be at least an avg runner. Has quickness in the bat with a good line drive stroke. Good approach with quiet hands. Hands stay inside ball and uses the whole field. Good bat control. Makes a lot of contact.

Jagger McCoy, LHP, Boca Raton Community, 2016
St. John's River State

10/22/15- Uncommitted 2016 with a loose, lean and projectable body at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds. He shows an over the top arm slot and sits in the 80-82 mph range and can touch 84 mph. 65-66 mph 12/6 curveball with some depth.

Danny Vaughn, 3B, South Dade Senior, 2016
Charleston Southern University

10/6/15- Strong and athletic body with a wide back. Open at the plate with good rhythm. Gets a separation for his load and a leg kick for his stride. Easy swing with a nice bat plane through the zone and the ball really jumps off his bat. Soft hands in the field with an above average arm across the diamond.
