Uncommitted Spotlight: Engelkes Generating More Velo, More Interest

Jake Engelkes RHP / 1B / Rockford, MI / 2019

ROCKFORD - Velocity is on the rise and interest from colleges is there.

A little more velo and Jake Engelkes sees the potential to talk with even more schools as the recruiting process heats up for the Rockford junior.

“Velo is something that’s held me back from the bigger Division I schools, but I’m creeping to the upper 80s,” explained the right-handed hurler. “If I can be more consistent with my change that will help, too. When I get a good one off it does really well, I just need to be more consistent with it.”

Two visits to Western Michigan and one to Taylor University, an NAIA school in Indiana, have taken place thus far for the 65th-ranked player in Michigan’s 2019 class. A visit is planned for May 6 to Central Michigan while there has also been talk with Dartmouth, Hillsdale, Northwood and Liberty. Western, Central, Hillsdale and Northwood all saw Engelkes at PBR showcases.
