The state of Michigan is filled with high-level baseball prospects throughout each corner of the state. The 2018 class has commitments all across the United States, from Vanderbilt to Miami to Kentucky to Missouri to Nebraska and many more colleges across the U.S. When looking at the 2018 rankings, you will see plenty of Michigan colleges littered throughout all of the commitments as well.

The 2019, 2020 and 2021 classes are also loaded and primed to make some big-time commitments to colleges all across the nation over the next few years. We at PBR Michigan look to bring you insightful information on these big-time commits as well as giving everyone a look at some of the top uncommitted prospects available as well.

Uncommitted Spotlight: Tumpkin Still Looking For An Opportunity

Carlos Tumpkin RHP / OF / Brother Rice, MI / 2018

BLOOMFIELD HILLS - An arm that has potential at the next level has colleges interested in Carlos Tumpkin. But a strong bat has brought another skill into the equation.

“I went to a recent PBR event and had a 94 exit velo,” the right-handed hitting Tumpkin noted. “The coach at Saginaw Valley talked to me after that. He was my coach at a Central Michigan camp and is also the pitching coach at Saginaw.”

The Brother Rice senior has had a visit to Mott and plans ahead are for visits to Lansing Community College and Mesa CC in Arizona. There have also been talks with Northwood as well as Eastern Michigan.

“If I go D-I or D-II, I’m fine with PO,” Tumpkin said about being a pitcher-only. “But if I go to a community college I want to go both ways.”

That avenue has developed with improvement over the past year.
