Nevada ProCase Preview: Aric Anderson


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

Anderson saw his stock rise significantly after his performance at the Nevada Top Prospect event in which he committed to San Diego State University shortly after. The strong, proportionate built backstop posted the top Pop Time of the event with a 1.87 that saw his throws living in and around the tag zone. Offensively, he produced one of the most impressive rounds of the day with present power to both gaps while leaving it twice with two no doubt blasts during his batting practice session. The Palo Verde product has had to split or share time with a string of high level catchers to come through the program including UNLV/CSN's, Jacob Godman, and Oregon Duck, Josiah Cromwick, and is now set to have a break out 2021 campaign. His recent performance and present tools have this prospect primed to show very well at the first ever PBR Nevada ProCase.
