Quick Hits - Oregon Top Prospect
June 23, 2023
Wednesday we had our Top Prospect event for uncommitted prospects in the 2024-2026 class.
Top Prospect is an invite event which combines the showcase elements of a PBR workout with added game play. The live ABs allows pitchers to face hitters in a game setting and we get to add an additional layer to the evaluation process.

Speed doesn't slump
Across the board this was our fastest event we’ve run in the state of Oregon with 16 total players clocking a 7.00 or faster in the 60.
Leading the way was one of the top uncommitted prospects in the ‘25 class OF Slater de Brun (Summit). The physical left-handed OF ran a 6.61 with powerful, explosive strides and also had the fastest 30 yard split at 3.74 s. All of the tools were on display as de Brun also topped at 99.6 in EV with a 90 mph arm from the OF in the defensive workout.

Another power/speed threat is uncommitted ‘24 INF Gunnar Gustafson (Mountainside) who posted a 6.69 while showing added strength to his 5’11, 180 lb frame. In BP, showed a quick, powerful barrel that can drive the ball to all fields. Went 1-2 with a loud 2B during live ABs.
‘24 INF Brooks Avery (Roseburg) showed great burst out of the gate with a 1.66 split in the 10 yard and finished with a 6.76 in the 60. Though slight of frame, he packs tremendous punch into his build with twitchy athleticism that shows defensively and at the plate

Posted a 6.76 60-yard dash time before looking the part defensively. Effortless barrel control w/ chance to hit. Top of order type.

‘24 OF Luey Campos (Crescent Valley) had a complete day in both the showcase and with his live ABs. Strongly built at 5’10, 175 lbs, he ran a 6.86 while tossing 82 mph from the OF with consistent accuracy. At the plate, his short, powerful levers produce consistent hard contact with a peak EV of 92.6 and a great average of 85.3, showcasing his consistency. Went 2-2 in game as well.
‘25 INF Kiyoshi Kiyokawa (Barlow) put it all together during the workout with a great speed/power combination as his foundation. Running a 6.85 in the 60 while popping a 94.1 peak EV with an average of 86 mph. Stocky, compact build with present strength. Impacts the ball with authority

6.85 runner with confident hands on the dirt. Some whip to the barrel from the right side. Sneaky juice sent some balls sailing deep.

‘24 OF Ezra Vice (Westview) has always been a wiry, rangy athlete in the OF with impressive speed. His game has taken a nice step forward as he’s added more bulk to his frame while also tightening up some swing mechanics and putting a shorter, tighter move on the ball. A 6.86 runner with peak EV of 95.1 and 83 mph arm from the OF. Frame can still carry more weight so it’s possible more power is still on the way.
Power bats to watch
6 players posted a peak EV of 97 mph or higher during the workout portion.
‘25 OF Gabriel Coltman (Lincoln) continues to lead the way in terms of pure raw power and offensive output while also showing multiple carrying tools. At 6’4, 220, he ran an impressive 7.05 in the 60 while showing a 91 mph arm from the OF. At the plate, his peak EV reached 104.7 mph on a ball that went an estimated 399 ft on a line. Overall possesses some of the loudest tools we’ve seen in the ‘25 class and has exciting upside.

Aggressive use of the hips with quickness of the hands. Made the yard look small…
Intriguing follow. @PBR_Uncommitted || @PBR_Oregon pic.twitter.com/6xU65T0bir
‘24 3B Elijah Beault (Century) was 2nd in peak EV with a top blast of 102.7 mph and he ultimately led the event in average EV with an impressive 93.9 mark. Breault carries strength throughout his frame and translates that power into his swing with a tight, compact swing and consistent barrel accuracy. Made proper swing decisions in game & went 1-2 with a line drive 2B.
‘24 1B Gregory Bologoff (Westview) was up to 99.0 on his best blast and showed his best contact up the middle of the diamond with line drive ball flight. From the left-side he stays tall and grounded in his lower half with quick, direct bat speed while staying strong at the point of contact.
‘24 OF/LHP Luke Fulkerson (Tigard) did a little bit of everything as a 2-way player on the day but started this off with a solid showing during BP where he flashed some left handed power with a top EV of 97.9. Gets a ton of leverage from his 6’3 frame and stays tall throughout for added loft on the ball.
‘24 Quintin Esmay (Canby) peaked at 97.2 with his EV on the day and it translated well to game play where he consistently found the barrel and produced hard, line drive contact. Gets impressive rotation power through his core and uses a mostly level bat path through the zone that allows him to spray the ball to all fields with authority.
Several middle INF prospects were on display with a diverse collection of skill sets amongst the group. ‘25 INF Wyatt Minto (Lakeridge) has quality size for the position with some fluidity throughout the fielding process and a clean, throwing motion across the diamond. ‘24 INF Ervin Dorsett III (Tualatin) showcased a big jump in overall strength, going from a peak EV of 85.9 last summer up to 96.6 on Wednesday. The added strength hasn’t hindered his quickness on the diamond as he’s an athletic defender with sound actions.
‘24 INF Cameron Ames (Central Catholic) continues to impress with above average speed and great arm strength for the iNF. He led the event with an 86 mph throw across the diamond to go with his 6.89 in the 60.
Uncommitted ‘24 SS Ervin Dorsett (OR) is going to be a nice add to some school’s recruiting class.— Shooter Hunt (@ShooterHunt) June 21, 2023
Easy actions on the dirt w/ left side upside before banging balls at the plate.
Simple approach w/ explosive yields. Hit/power potential. 👍@PBR_Oregon || @PBR_Uncommitted pic.twitter.com/Y0Q9aIFWD1
‘26 Ty Burnham (Sheldon) can bounce back and forth between OF and C but the arm is becoming an extremely loud tool from the OF right now. With a top throw of 92 mph and emerging power from the left side, the rising frosh has a chance to develop into a prototypical corner OF prospect.
‘25 OF Drew Hall (Wilsonville) has a balanced skill set across the board and put together a 2-2 performance in game. A solid runner with arm strength, bat speed and gap to gap power, he really emerged in the last year and could have a big junior campaign next season. ‘24 OF Owen Montgomery (Mountainside) impressed in Eugene during our preseason tour and possesses some of the best projectability of anyone we saw on the day. A 6.9 runner with an 86 mph arm from the OF with easy bat speed. He checks a lot of boxes and is a strong follow. ‘24 OF Vince Williams (Lake Oswego) continues to show great overall feel for the game in all facets. Where he stands out the most is at the plate with his pitch recognition and bat to ball skills against both velo and spin. His size, speed and arm will allow him to stick in the OF long term. ‘25 OF Brady McCarthy (Grant) has the versatility to jump behind the dish and C if needed but he showed well in the OF on this look and the athleticism plays out there. Offensively he has one of the more balanced and fluid swings we saw on the day with a ‘hitterish’ look in the box.
‘26 C Ty Burnham (OR) continues to show well as a close follow in the class.— Shooter Hunt (@ShooterHunt) June 21, 2023
Long frame projects & leverages it well from the left side with power potential.

‘25 C Aidan Birchard (Oregon City) profiles well behind the plate with his compact strength and catch & throw ability. Up to 75 mph from behind the dish. He was all over the bag on his throws down with terrific pops consistently between 2.00 - 2.05. Offensively he’s showed added pop and quick bat speed with a tight, compact stroke. ‘24 C Ty Sheldon (Liberty) was also at the top of the throwing leaderboard with a 75 mph toss from behind the plate. The vocal leader brings a ton of energy behind the dish and offensively he’s starting to add more rhythm & power to his game.
‘24 RHP Aidan Kelly (Sherwood) will be an arm to watch even more next season as he possesses a strong FB/CB combination with feel for controlling the zone. FB topped at 84.8 on this look and plays well in the top of the zone. His ability to rip off a hammer CB with hard, downer break gives him a viable ‘K’ pitch that hitters have to contend with
‘24 RHP Hudson Normand (Clackamas) lives 83-84 with a lively FB and a tight breaking ball with lateral shape. His athleticism translates well to the mound and he has the look of the type of PNW arm that can really make a big jump between his Jr and Sr season.
‘24 LHP Alex Dexter (Lincoln) had it working early and often with a tough FB/SL combination coming from a short, deceptive arm slot from the left-side. At 6’3, 210, he’s built to be a durable, workhorse type starter and his stuff is capable of missing bats. Up to 84, if he continues to improve at this trajectory he’s going to be an extremely tough match-up for opposing offenses next spring.
‘25 LHP Cole Crossley (Mountainside) started off the day with the position players. Working out in the OF and flashing the arm talent early with an 85 mph throw during defense. His long, lanky frame and loose arm translates to the mound where he attacks with a live FB and above avg CB. The CB has a chance to be special as it features depth and hard, downer action that can get a swing and miss while staying in the zone. Definitely arm to watch in the class.
‘25 RHP Noah Kovac (Sandy was towards the top of the velo leaderboards with a peak FB of 84.2 mph but it was the breaking ball that really excelled on this look. Kovac is a lean, fluid athlete who moves easily through his delivery with clean arm action and late intent. The spin comes out of hand sharp and he stays on top of the ball well. With his frame, it’s easy to envision continued progress as he adds strength/reps.
‘25 INF/RHP Dillon Garg (Jesuit was one of the more complete 2-way performers on the day and continues to show progress with his arm talent. FB topped at 84.6 on this look and when you combine the pitching aptitude with what he did as a position player, it really highlights all the ways he can impact the game. He seems like safe bet to contribute in a lot of ways for Jesuit next season as there should be opportunities all over the diamond with the ‘23 class graduating.
