JUCO Uncommitted Spotlight: Josh Prinner


Scott Hood
OK/MO/KS/ARK Assistant Scouting Director

Sophomore shortstop Josh Prinner had a monster year for the Red Devils in 2022 with a .390 batting average with 3 triples, 4 homers, and a new school record of 26 doubles.  Hitting in the middle of the order Prinner was able to do some damage driving in 47 runs and showing off his athleticism picking up 7 steals as well.  Prinner had a strong workout last fall for the Allen Community College Scout Day where he ran a 6.9 in the 60, threw it 89 mph across the diamond, and had exit velocities up to 97 mph.  He showed smooth actions at shortstop and has enough arm strength to remain on the left side of the infield at the next level.  After fielding the ball at short at a .954 fielding percentage and showing the ability to drive the ball for extra bases, Josh shouldn't stay uncommitted long and will check a lot of boxes coaches at the next level are looking for.
