Idaho Uncommitted Spotlight - 2025 RHP/3B Brayden Schaefer


Cam Black-Araujo
Idaho Operations

With the summer season wrapped up, we now continue our coverage of the talent we've seen so far this year in Idaho with 'Uncommitted Spotlights' of the top prospects still on the board from the past events. This summer proved, yet again, that the talent in Idaho runs deep and these Uncommitted Spotlights are used to highlight players with tools that will play at the collegiate level.

These spotlights help paint a picture of the prospect with the help of our TrackMan, Blast Motion, Swift Performance and Vizual Edge systems, that provides objective data that teams use to identify and break down players they believe will fit into their system.

Today, we continue our Idaho Top Uncommitted Spotlights with a look at 2025 RHP/3B Brayden Schaefer of Nampa Christian who sat 82-85mph at the West Coast Games, along with a high-spin breaking ball.
