By Drew Locascio
Illinois Scouting Director

Over the last few weeks, the PBR Illinois staff has been covering the state's senior class by detailing the destinations the prospects are headed. From the Big Ten to the Atlantic Sun, we've been providing analysis and the latest notes on the future homes of the top talent in Illinois. Today, we're shining a light on the prospects who do not yet have landing spots for the fall of 2020.

Throughout the rest of this week, we'll highlight some names who deserve a little more attention as they prepare for the final spring seasons of their high school careers.

Scouting Report

7/25/195-foot-8, 175-pound outfielder, athletic build with above average strength. Dynamic player, right-handed hitter, short compact stroke with an all field approach, does look to go opposite when pitched away, twitchiness in the hands. Line drive contact, competes in the box. 4.19 runner down the line. Smoked an RBI triple to right field for his only hit of the game in a 10-1 victory over Top Tier Navy. Later in the tournament, Kanellakis showed that he indeed can get the barrel head out, driving a pair of doubles to his pull side against the Illinois Braves. The first double was scorched down the third base line showing present bat speed on an inside fastball and hustling in for the two-bagger and the other was a pitch left over the plate he lifted between the left/center gap, driving in a run. He also scored a run in the game.

7/29/18 -  High-motor center fielder who play the game hard and fast. Left-handed thrower, right-handed hitter, leadoff spot. Short compact swing, flat through contact, line-drive-type hitter, hard-contact guy, occasional pop off the bat. Center field defender, smooth actions, well above-average runner, easy actions, comfortable tracking the baseball. Average arm for his age

2/19/18 - 5-foot-8, 160-pound, strong, right handed hitting, left handed throwing outfielder. At the plate, balanced, slightly open setup, quick leg kick trigger, balanced throughout swing. Flashes bat speed, compact, level bat path, exit velocity of 84 mph off a tee. Defensively, quick feet, steady hands, plays through the ball, short arm action, high ¾ slot, throws topped 79 mph from the outfield.

1/29/17 - 5-foot-8, 160-pound right-handed hitting outfielder. At the plate hits from a balanced setup with a short stride. Uphill swing path with a fast bat.
