Uncommitted Spotlight: 2022 IF/RHP Jason Schaaf


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

As the we begin the Winter Season, heading into the first "normal" Spring since 2019, the next few months will be critical for players in the Class of 2022 as collegiate programs at each level are solidifying their recruiting rosters. The NCAA Recruiting Calendar allows for limited contact during the current time period and as a result of that, recruiting coordinators have turned to social media and website coverage of players to help provide objective insight on potential prospects. With that, we will begin highlighting the top prospects the Silver State has to offer in an effort to get our players with college aspirations an opportunity at the next level, wherever that may be with the Uncommitted Spotlight feature.

Jason Schaaf - Palo Verde | IF/rhp

2021 Top Prospect Games Report - "Schaaf came into the Top Prospect Game after his breakout 2021 High School season. Athletic build on medium frame with some twitch and bounce throughout his game. Got his day started off with a 6.92 Laser Timed 60. Showed athletic action at SS with an ability to range to both sides. Flows through the ball with ease. Posted an event best 82 mph across the diamond, should allow him to stay on the left side of the IF. At the plate, spread/slighty opened set up. Simple pick up/put down stride with coil load in his upper half. Compact swing with some length through extension staying mostly level in the zone. Line drive producer. Notched two base hits during the Simulated Game. Showcased his ability to spray the ball all over the yard. Also showed his two-way capabilities with a fastball/curveball mix that saw him run it up to 86 mph with some good shape on his breaking ball that was very effective when he was able to locate. He projects to move on to the next level as an infielder, but could be an effective HS pitcher for Palo Verde next year."
