TOP RETURNERS (Listed Alphabetically)

Tyler Freeman, OF, Class of 2014
Tony Kline, IF, Class of 2015
Nick Ray, OF, Class of 2015

UNDERCLASSMEN TO WATCH (Listed Alphabetically)

Trevor King, RHP, Class of 2016
Luke Moise, C, Class of 2016
Nolan Williams, IF, Class of 2017

OUTLOOK:  

Turner must replace most of their team from a year ago including three All-Kaw Valley League performers.  Clearly the door is wide open for new faces to step up.  Fortunately for Golden Bears they do return All-League pitcher in Corey Cowan which is a good start.  In addition, they have one of the top class of 2017 prospects in the Midwest, if not the nation, in Nolan Williams, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound, switch-hitting shortstop.  Williams opened a lot of eyes this January with his performances at the PBR Underclass Invitational and the Johnson County Community College Showcase flashing across the board tools that made jaws drop – despite the fact he is yet to play a game in high school, he’s already squarely on the radar screen of major college coaches and MLB scouts.
