Recruiting News: More players make their commitments

By Mike Penn
Michigan Director of Scouting

As schools are able to get out and see player in the spring the recruiting trail is starting to heat up again. More players have made their decisions on where to play at the next level, including a Top 10 sophomore Will Mullen (Notre Dame Prep HS).


Aaron Fadden, OF, Gull Lake HS- Fadden had several great workouts for us this offseason.  A speedy outfielder who runs sub 7.0 and is 84+ from the outfield Fadden committed to Grand Rapids Community College.  Fadden will be one to watch as Gull Lake makes a run this spring.

Ty Rock, RHP/1B, Gobles HS- Rock battled some hamstring issues this fall and winter but still perfromed well at the Unsigned Senior back in October.  Rock who sits in the mid-80's with his fastball drew attention from DI schools all the way to JUCO.  He is also a proficient hitter who will be a two-way psossibility for Kalamazoo.

Michael Sielinski, C, Swan Valley HS- Sielinski flew under the radar for a long time.  The 6-foot-4, 200-pound catcher made a name for himself with his athleticism and raw tools.  Sielinski is a good runner (7.08) and has a sub-2.0 pop time.  He has committed to play at Fort Scott Community College (KS).

Dustin DeBeau, C, Merrill HS- DeBeau recently committed to Bethany Lutheran (KS).  He helped Merrill to a state final four appearance in 2012.  The wirey DeBeau shows some bat speed and a pop time at 2.1-2.2.  He is a testament to continued hard work and improvement.  

Maverick Prine, SS/RHP, Davison HS- Prine is an extremely athletic shortstop.  A two-way threat for Adrian for sure.  Prine is a 6.7 runner with plenty of strength and even garnered some DI attention. He is 84-86 mph off the mound and has juice in his bat. 

Other 2013 Commitments:

Nick Mazzone, OF, Clarkston HS- Committed to Ohio Dominican 

Eddie Champagne, OF/RHP, Grosse Pointe South HS- Committed to Kalamazoo College

Will Mullen, RHP, Notre Dame Prep HS
- Mullen saw his stock rise this past winter especially when he was up to 87mph in a workout for us.  Mullen instantly became a hot commodity in the sophomore class.  The 6-foot-4 RHP still has a ways to go in terms of polish but he should be a good one.
