The state of Nebraska is home to college baseball’s most prestigious event, the College World Series in Omaha, and while the state is filled with talented athletes and ballplayers, many are not seen on the summer recruiting circuit. Whether it be because of their commitment to their Legion-ball team or the fact that they are also playing multiple sports (Nebraska has many multi-sport players), sometimes talented baseball players can get missed by recruiters. For that reason, In the Weeds, this week, highlights a crop of players entirely from the Cornhusker State including multi-sport, multi-position prospects that schools will want to take note of moving forward.

Quinn Mason RHP / OF / Gretna, NE / 2019

Physical, with proportional strength throughout his 6-foot-2, 195-pound frame, Mason has a chance to be a two-way player at the next level. The big right-hander worked 87-89 with his fastball at PBR Nebraska’s Elite 50, and showcased a loose, clean arm. He also exhibited some feel for an 11/5 breaking ball (75-76) that featured tighter spin with late depth, and a developing changeup at 78-79. Continued repetitions on the mound should help him continue to repeat his high ¾ slot, and as he gets more comfortable with his delivery he may find even greater use of his back side while remaining linear down the mound. There is a good chance that he sees even greater velocity increases in the future as he showed of 90 mph throws from the outfield, and also ran 6.77 60-yard dash demonstrating his athleticism. At the plate, the right-handed hitter is balanced with a smooth hands load down and back before working quickly through the zone on a flat path. He may project for even greater power in the future as he continues filling out as he already posts an exit velocity of 93 mph. Overall, Mason is an intriguing prospect as he has the frame and athleticism to continue developing at a rapid rate, so recruiters will want to track his progression this summer, as he may have a chance to help their program in the future.
