OTHERS TO WATCH: An Iowa recruit, 1B Peyton Williams (Johnston HS, IA) stands at 6-foot-5, 225 pounds with projectable power in his left-handed bat. He is also a solid athlete and runs a 7.1-second 60. RHP Harrison Cook (Cedar Rapids Prairie HS, IA) is long, lean and athletic at 6-foot-5. The Kentucky recruit has easy movements and has been in the upper 80s, touching 91, while flashing an above average breaking ball at times. LHP/OF Nick Gottilla (Davenport Assumption HS, IA) has a lean, athletic frame with some quick-twitch actions. The Central Florida recruit has been inconsistent with his velocity, but has shown a high-80s fastball with above average life, as well as a sharp breaking ball with 2/8 shape.
