Unsigned Senior Spotlight: 1B/C Alex Hundiak

By Greg Williams
PA Director of Scouting

Uncommitted seniors often begin to get a little uneasy at this point in the early fall. With the early signing period looming in November a general attitude of unrest tends to settle in if the right school has not come calling for them.

Over the coming weeks we will take a look at some unsigned seniors that showed next level ability during their participation in summer PBR events.

Alex HundiakHundiak is a 6-foot, 225-pound right-handed hitter that showed well in a pair of PBR events over the course of the summer. The uncommitted senior starts from a square stance with a high hands load. Hundiak displays above average hands and a bat exit velocity of 88 mph. The ball jumps off his barrel when squared. Hundiak's swing translates into game play as evidenced by his 2-for-4 day two performance with a double and two RBI at the WV Top Prospect Games.

Hundiak showcased a solid 7.44 60-yard dash and an accurate 71 mph arm across the diamond from 1B. He has a soft glove hand and good feet that will allow a potential move to third base at the next level if the need arises. He also showed developing skills behind the plate adding to his defensive diversity.

Following the completion of the Fall College Prospect Program unsigned seniors will have an opportunity to stand out on a day set aside for them to display their talent in front of those schools that are still looking to fill their recruiting needs for the fall of 2016.

The 2015 Unsigned Senior Showcase will take place on October 3 at the Keystone State Baseball Academy in Manheim, PA. This event continues to grow in popularity and in its ability to help match available seniors with college programs that have needs. Over the past three years 37 of 57 prospects have gone on to make college commitments with several others attempting to walk on and make college rosters this fall.
