Indiana Recruiting Notebook

Director, PBR Indiana

Several more players have recenlty named their schools.  Below is a quick look at who is going where:

Jordan Poore, OF/LHP, Muncie Central HS, 2015:
Poore recently committed to Florida Atlantic University. The No. 12 ranked prospect in the 2015 class was a member of Team IN at this summer's Midwest Future Games. He handles velocity and recognizes spin on pitches very well. Poore is one the few kids that will do both in college. Poore on the mound is 82-85 from the left side with a good breaking ball. Poore is a competitor too which is a forgotten tool. 

Tyler Ward, RHP/SS, Heritage Hills HS, 2015: Ward has committed to Indiana State University.  The No. 17 ranked prospect in Indiana's 2015 class was a member of Team IN at this summer's Midwest Future Games.  Like Poore, is a great competitor.  Shows plus actions up the middle and is 82-85 on the mound with lots of movement.  Ward is still considered a two-way prospect and time will tell which direction he will head. 

Joey Filosa, RHP, Northrop HS, 2014: Filosa recently committed to Ohio Dominican University.  Filosa attended 2012's Fort Wayne Top Prospect Showcase.  He's currently ranked No. 52 in Indiana's 2014 class.  

Tyler Langdon, MIF, Mt. Vernon HS (Fortville), 2014:  Langdon has committed to Lincoln Trail.  The No. 113 ranked player in Indiana's 2014 class attended the All State Prospect ID showcase in Indy this past summer where he showcased good arm strength at 83 mph across the diamond.  Hard contact type hitter at the plate.  

Andrew Jackson, LHP/1B, Kankakee Valley HS, 2014: Jackson committed to Wabash College.  The 6-foot-5, 210 pound prospect was a participant at this summer's Top Prospect Games at IU where he was up to 79 mph with his fastball.  Jackson is a tough matchup for left handed hitters.  

Patrick Norris, OF/MIF, Center Grove HS, 2014:  Norris has committed to Danville Area CC.  He's currently ranked No. 175 in Indiana's 2014 class.  At last year's Preseason All State showcase he ran a 6.75 60. 

Sam Bell, RHP, Munster HS, 2014:  Bell has committed to Marian University.  The 6-foot-3, 200 pound RHP attended the 18U Nationals Showcase this past summer where he showcased a strong build with a heavy low 80's fastball.
