Ohio Insider: Top Underclass Uncommitted Outfield Prospects

With the Summer season coming to an end and the 2016-2017 high school sports season as well as fall ball getting underway, we would like to take a look at some of the top uncommitted prospects at each position. Over the past month we looked at the top 2017 prospects and as you can see by our 2017 Player Rankings there are numerous talented prospects available.

Today we are looking at the top uncommitted underclass Outfield Prospects in Ohio. We will look to create a few top uncommitted lists each week and as you can see by our 2018 and 2019 Player Rankings, there are numerous talented prospects available.

Class of 2018

Ryan McCurry, OF, Solon, 2018
Ranked: 21st in Ohio’s 2018 class
Scouting Report: 6-foot, 190-pound, athletic frame. Few players stock rose this summer more than his after his performance at the Top Prospect Games and Future Games. Can flat out fly as he ran an impressive 6.47 60-yard dash and his in game home to first time was 4.06. At the plate he showed he has more than just elite speed. Using fluid movements he created excellent energy into contact with his lower half. Hands move slightly back during his stride before getting through the zone quickly on a level path. More than held his own against top level pitching by recording multiple extra base hits at each prestigious event. Exit velocity is 88 mph. A solid defender in the outfield with fluid actions and the ability to play through the ball. Arm strength is adequate as he topped out at 83 mph to home plate.
College Outlook: With his elite speed and ability to swing the bat he could find himself on the field early in his career. Ryan definitely has some juice at the plate and is far from a slap hitter that can really run. Speed and frame says he will be a table setter at the next level but don’t be shocked if he ends up being a three hole guy. Has the tools and instinct to play centerfield, how his arm progresses will likely determine if he stays up the middle or moves to left field.
