TJ Hunt
Director, PBR New Jersey

The Morris County Cubs Scout Day featured some top performers in all grad classes, but the 2021s stood out as the cream of the crop. Two commits in Northeastern recruit 2021 INF Justin Bosland (Roxbury HS, NJ) and Notre Dame LHP Jack Findlay (Roxbury HS, NJ) showcased why Roxbury High School will be a force to be reckoned with in the spring of 2021. In a rain-shortened first day, NJIT recruit 2021 INF Ty Salle (Parsippany Hills HS, NJ) showcased his next level athleticism and strength at the plate during BP, while recent Nichols College commit 2021 RHP Ben Weber (Pope John XXIII HS, NJ) and top uncommitted RHP Tim Crum (Sussex Tech HS, NJ) flashed promise on the bump.
