Updated Roster for the Underclass Preview



By Mike Penn
Michigan Scouting Director

T
he Underclass Preview on Saturday will see plenty of talent walk through the door. Here are some quick notes from some of the players we have seen thus far:

  • Karl Kauffmann headlines the 2016 class.  Kaufmann is entering his freshman year at Brother Rice and has a ton of upside. We have received reports of him being up to 88mph this past summer.
  • Alexx Zielinski, the current No. 1 ranked player in the Class of 2015 has been in the middle of basketball but will attend Saturday.  We have had the 6-foot-5 lefty up to 84mph last summer.
  • Bryce Kelley (2016) has also been playing basketball but was up to 84 last summer from the left side.
  • Riley McCauley has been up to 87mph this off-season at a workout in Madison Heights.
  • Jacob Vander Wal ran a 6.76 for us at an event earlier this winter in mid January. Vander Wal has a good bounce in his step and shows good actions in the outfield.
  • Dennis Jordan has been up to 85mph off the mound for us back in January as well.  The 6-foot-5 right-hander is high up over the top but gets good downhill plane when it is going well.


Here is the current roster for the Underclass Preview. We will post a finalize roster late Friday afternoon.
