TAYLOR - It was in June when Adam Goodwin, PBR Michigan Director of Scouting, saw Tylor Morehouse for the initial time.

“Our first look at Tylor was at the Top Prospect Games,” Goodwin said. “Did he ever turn some heads that week with a good frame and live arm. He will be a player college coaches will want to check in on as we’re in the thick of it with the summer circuit.”

While there have been no visits or offers to date, the 24th-ranked 2024 shortstop in Michigan has been in conversation with Saginaw Valley State, Toledo, Dayton, Oakland and Wayne State, with a trip to Adrian in the near future.

“PBR definitely helped with colleges reaching out,” Morehouse noted. “I’ve had some DMs from them wanting to see me play.

“It’s a little stressful,” Morehouse added. “There are people I personally feel I’m better than that are committing and I’m not. But it’s cool talking to the colleges. I played in Georgia a couple of weeks ago at the PBR National Championships and a few reached out.”

A two-way prospect, Morehouse - who was 4-8 with a walk, RBI and three runs scored in two games playing for Gabriel Richard in the high school state Final Four in 2022 - has made improvements in his game since then.

“I’ve put in a lot of work, every single day,” the 17-year-old related. “I’m faster, bigger, stronger. I’ve gained muscle, speed and agility. My fastball is up 10 miles an hour, my speed has gone from 7.7 to 6.9 and my exit velo is 94 with wood.”

The work is far from done, however, for the 110th-rated incoming Michigan senior.

“I want to get a little quicker with side-to-side movements,” Morehouse explained. “I want to be more consistent in big games, throwing strikes and having more quick innings.”

While the hope is to find a place to be a two-way player, the 6-2 195-pounder understands it is a whole new game at the college level.

“I want to play two-way but I’ll play where the coach needs me to play,” pointed out Morehouse, who has been playing shortstop, third base, second base and pitcher in high school and summer ball.

“Since I started playing I’ve wanted to play for as long as I can,” Morehouse noted. “College baseball has always been a dream. I was always good, but in eighth grade is when I started growing and getting that much better.”

The incoming senior at Gabriel Richard has an idea of what he wants in a school.

“I wouldn’t mind going away from home, but not too far,” Morehouse said. “I’m looking for a close atmosphere, a good culture and an established program with college coaches that will help you get seen by MLB and are getting guys drafted.”

Wherever he ends up, Morehouse is confident he can be of value to a program at the next level.

“I’ll give everything I’ve got,” Morehouse explained. “I’ll work harder than anyone. I’ll bring energy and focus. I’ll be a great teammate and a leader.”

A major in business/entrepreneurship is the plan for the 3.73 student, who believes the next few months will be big in his recruiting process.

“I’m hoping to go on some visits, go to some showcases and to some camps,” Morehouse concluded. “With some exposure maybe I’ll get some offers and make a commitment. I definitely feel I have the skills to play college baseball.”
