Ohio Insider: Top Underclass Uncommitted Infield 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 Infielder 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.

Grant Vera, SS, Tiffin Calvert
Ranked: 16th in Ohio’s 2018 class
Scouting Report: Has an advanced skill set in the infield. Very smooth, athletic actions with impressive glove skills. Never looks rushed or in panic mode. Doesn’t have top end speed but moves well laterally and is an instinctual defender. Has all the tools to play shortstop at the next level. At the plate he has impressive pop for his size. Has a natural uphill path. Swing is fluid with well above average bat speed. Top exit velocity is 92 mph. Did more than hold his own at the Future Games where he recorded multiple extra base hits.
College Outlook: Will be able to play defense at a high level from day one. Has the tools to play shortstop or if he had to move to second he’d be a plus defender. At the plate he has the frame of the top of the lineup guy but the swing and intent of a middle guy. How he matures physically will most likely determine where he starts but most likely will end up in a run producer role.
