Nick Hopkins SS St. Mary's 2018
La Salle
Scouting Report (PBR Future Games 8.4.16)
Was the Mid-Atlantic sleeper infielder from the event. Athletic actions and projectable frame. Ran a 6.99 60-yard dash, loose arm that was up to 82 across the diamond. Beginning to show more strength with an exit velocity of 88 from the left side and 89 from the right. Is more comfortable hitting right handed but still shows potential from the left. Load got him on timing from the left side. Still room for growth from the prospect and potential to play at a high level.

9.16 - Seils has continued to project over the summer. A long and lanky frame with projection. Getting more looks on the mound with his body now and showing off a fastball in the mid 80's with room for more.
