Treshaun Prupis, 1B/3B, Aiken HS (SC), 2020
6’5 260 pounds. Strong and large presence at the plate with plus power to the pull side. Back to back impressive weekends for Prupis, he has shown to be an extra base threat every at bat. Controlled but yet aggressive swing. 

Ramses Ortega, RHP, Home School (GA), 2020
5-foot-10, 170-pound athletically built right-handed pitcher. Arm works long to a 3.4 slot, repreats well. Lived up in the zone with fastball, 82-85, induced weak contact. Changeup showed late action.

Jack Davis, C/1B, Parkview (GA), 2020
Uncommitted. 6-foot-4, 178-pound right-handed hitting catcher, lean frame, plenty of room for filling out. Stood out offensively, uses his length well to create leverage, throws the barrel through the zone to generate hard contact.

Complete Game 17U

Matthew Flanagan, LHP, Westside (GA), 2020
6-foot-6 170 pounds. Long, lanky frame and uses it to his advantage. Saw his FB get up to 83, although it plays up with 8ft of extension. Deceptive CH showing arm side run. Much more room left to mature into his figure making him a very projectable LHP in the 2020 class.
Owen Powell, 1B/RHP, Westside (GA), 2020
6-foot-3 210 pounds. Strong build with a plus tool in the ability to hit for power. Throws the knob and lets the barrel follow. Really quick hands allowing him to turn on the inside pitch, including a single that came off the bat at 96 mph this weekend. 
Samuel Roebuck, RHP, Greenbrier (GA), 2020

Uncommitted. 5-foot-10, 162-pound right-handed pitcher, athletic build with strength in lower half. Short  arm action with a quick draw to a ¾ slot. Uses lower half well in drop and drive delivery, keeps momentum on-line, lands square. Fastball played up to 85 mph, mostly 81-84, featured armside run. Breaking ball had sweeping action to it at 64-66. Also mixed in a changeup at 70 mph.
Trevor Creagan, RHP, Lakeside (GA), 2020
Uncommitted. 6-foot-3, 215-pound big, strong frame, high waist, room for filling out. On the mound, uses a long arm action, gets extension down the mound. Fastball touched 82 mph, ranged 79-83, gets plus extension on the pitch (6-feet, 10 inches).

Duluth Noles

Kade Snell, LHP, Wicksburg (AL), 2020
6-foot-0 220 pounds. An Auburn recruit, Snell dominated on the mound this weekend going seven scoreless innings. FB was 86-87 from start to finish. That was paired with a SL that showed sharp, 2/7 shape to it at 73mph. Snell had a soft turn of the backside while working out of a ¾ slot, getting more out of the bottom half as the game progressed.

Tanner Bastings, RHP, Paulding County (GA), 2020

Uncommitted. 6-foot-1, 215-pound right-handed, big, strong frame. Works from a more unorthodox lower ¾ slot with a quick pace. Fastball sat 84-86, changeup came in at 75. 



Spencer Wilkins, RHP, Strong Rock Chrisitan (GA), 2021
Uncommitted. 6-foot-1, 195-pounds, athletically built with developing strength throughout. Really gets into his legs with drop and drive delivery. Slow draw out of the glove, long on back-side, accelerates quickly through release, high ¾ slot. Big presence on the mound, induced frequent weak contact and pounded both sides of the plate.

Indiana Astros

Sam Pohl, SS, Whiteland Community (IN), 2020
Uncommitted. 5-foot-9, 145-pound switch-hitting shortstop, good all around athlete, lean build. Offensively, balanced setup, short stride, hands load back, keeps front-side high. Takes a line drive approach at the plate, good barrel control, finds holes in the defense and looks to put it there. Defensively, fields shortstop aggressively, arm works athletically. A spark plug for the Indiana Astros.

Oliver Rau, RHP, Greenwood (IN), 2020

Uncommitted. 6-foot-1, 180-pound right-handed hitter average build with strength in lower half. Arm works short, with a stab on the back-side, to an over-the-top slot, hides the ball well. Tall and fall delivery, strides towards the third base side of the rubber, lands closed, finishes upright. Fastball sat 81-84, some life at-times. Curveball at 71-73.

Next Lvl Red

CJ Whaley, RHP, Kennesaw Mountain, 2021

Uncommitted. 6-foot-3, 198-pound right-handed pitcher, projectable build, long frame, room for filling out. Used a long arm action and a high ¾ slot, repeated well. Tossed a no-hitter early on in the LakePoint Classic, showed command of three pitches. Fastball touched 80, sinking and cut action. Curveball had late break and good depth, added in a changeup as well.
Rawlings SE American

Joseph Roden, RHP, Locust Grove (GA), 2019

Ian Donahue, RHP, American School in Japan, 2020
Uncommitted. 6-foot, 155-pound athletic right-handed pitcher, lean frame. Deceptive delivery, messes with timing by adding a shimmy, great balance throughout. Arm works loosely. Fastball sat 84-87 (2400 rpm) in first relief appearance at LakePoint Classic. Offspeed is still a work in progress.

6-foot-0 170 pounds; proved to be a solid left-handed pitching prospect out of the 2020 class. FB was consistently 82-84mph and got as high as 86 (2222rpm). Tight SL with 2/7 shape; 73mph and 1900rpm. Pounds the strike zone with both pitches. Gets a lot out of his lower half, starting with a high leg kick and strong drive from the back leg.

Top Tier Navy

Alonzo Raigosa, SS, Solorio (IL), 2020
Uncommitted. 6-foot, 160-pound right-handed hitting shortstop, lean athlete.
