Ontario Commitments Beginning To Heat Up

Over the last 10 days or so, the college commitments in Ontario are starting to heat up with the 2018 class starting to finalize and make decisions while the focus is beginning to turn towards the 2019 uncommitted talents here in Ontario.

As we dive into summer, there is still a large group of 2018 grads still uncommitted who can be contributors at the next level and the 2019 Rankings in Ontario is basically untouched. With these recent commitments below, it speaks to the talent level of players who are considered “late signs” by the industry, but will be anything but last round additions on the field once they step on campus in September. Enough talking about, check out the recent commitments below.

Daniel Carinci SS / 2B / Pickering, ON / 2018

Commitment: Alabama

Report: The Canadian Junior National Team middle infielder was committed to one of the junior college programs in the nation with Indian Hills in Iowa, but after recent coaching changes, Carinci opened up the doors to speak with other teams and Alabama of the SEC stepped up and flexed their muscle. Carinci took a visit last week and needless to say enjoyed his time. With Alabama losing multiple infielders to the draft, this opened the door for the athletic, quick twitch Carinci and he found a home with the Crimson Tide.

Griffin Hassall RHP / Bill Crothers, ON / 2018

Commitment: Kansas State

Report: Hassall has been one of the top uncommitted arms in the entire country for a while now, and he finally came to a decision this past week as Kansas State and their new coach stepped up and delivered for the 6-foot-3 right-hander. Hassall is not overpowering with his stuff, but he fills the zone with three pitches, has shown the ability to handle intense and pressure filled moments on the biggest stage with the Junior National Team, and will be a guy who can contribute early on in many ways and eventually turn himself into a frontline starter for the Wildcats.
