OTHERS TO WATCH: 3B Drew Compton (Governor Livingston HS, NJ) is a switch-hitter with power to the gaps and a broad-shouldered frame. C Tate Ballestero (Morristown HS, NJ) is a switch-hitting catcher with power and room to fill out. RHP Nick Maldonado (Seton Hall Prep HS, NJ) has had an illustrious high school career and possesses a solid three-pitch mix that plays up. RHP Ron Cole (Neptune HS, NJ) and RHP Stephen Restuccio (Hammonton HS, NJ) have run their fastballs into the low 90s. LHP Ryan Ramsey (Pascack Hills HS, NJ) has a true starter profile and is more 86-88 with his fastball. C Cade Hunter (Lenape HS, NJ) is a left-handed bat that could be a late-round selection. RHP Jayson Hoopes (St. Augustine Prep HS, NJ) is a max effort type, but the fastball has been clocked multiple times at 93-94 at big ticket events.
