Unsigned Senior Spotlight: Jeran Simpson

By Drew Locascio
Illinois Scouting Director

The final Unsigned Senior Showcase of the year is coming January 24th to The MAX in McCook, IL. As we lead up to the event and the final spring season for seniors in high school, we take a look at some of the best available prospects still on the market. One of the best available infielders is SS/INF Jeran Simpson from Wheaton Warrenville South HS. Simpson was one of the top overall prospects at the Unsigned Senior Showcase held in October. He is one of the best right-handed hitters still available in the 2016 class. He showed extremely loose, easy bat speed evidenced by a 96 mph exit velocity.  He also ran a 7.01 60 at the event and showed steady hands on the infield.
