The state of Michigan is filled with high-level baseball prospects throughout each corner of the state. The 2018 class has commitments all across the United States, from Vanderbilt to Miami to Kentucky to Missouri to Nebraska and many more colleges across the U.S. When looking at the 2018 rankings, you will see plenty of Michigan colleges littered throughout all of the commitments as well.

The 2019, 2020 and 2021 classes are also loaded and primed to make some big-time commitments to colleges all across the nation over the next few years. We at PBR Michigan look to bring you insightful information on these big-time commits as well as giving everyone a look at some of the top uncommitted prospects available as well.

Uncommitted Spotlight: Expectations Are High For Blakely

DETROIT - With two visits already in the books and more in the planning stages, Werner Blakely hopes to use Saturday’s PBR Preseason All-State event to draw even more interest.

“My expectations are to do well, showcase my talent, show what a shortstop can do and try to get big numbers for my exit velo and throwing it across the diamond,” explained Blakely, a sophomore at D.E.P.S.A.

After already checking out Michigan and Michigan State, Blakely has plans to schedule visits to Miami (Florida), Alabama and Auburn in the spring.

“Most of them saw me with my travel team Midland,” noted the eighth-ranked player in the state’s 2020 class. “I also played Perfect Games at Lake Point and I went to Jupiter, Fla. They like my potential, that I have height at 6-3 and my athleticism.”
