Days 3-4: WWBA UNDERCLASS (Ft. Myers)
October 8, 2018
It took all of one throw in the outfield while warming up for 2022 Termarr Johnson (Mays HS, GA) to stand out. His quick, whippy arm and flashy glove skills immediately catch the eye, even though he is only 5-foot-8, 140-pounds.

A left-handed hitter, Johnson utilizes a bigger leg kick to trigger his hands down and back before his quick hands and aggressive hips whip the barrel through the zone on a level plane with a higher finish. He smashed a double to the opposite field off the fence on the third day after posting quality at-bats throughout with a plethora of walks. Johnson’s energy and athleticism make it hard to look away when he’s performing, and he already looks like one of the premier prospects in the 2022 class.

Currently 5-foot-11, 165-pounds his quick arm and ability to spin the breaking ball should have plenty of coaches following him moving forward.
Myles McDermott, RHP, Archbishop Williams HS, MA (2020)
Uncommitted. McDermott’s power arm was on full display in the playoffs for Canes National, working his fastball at...
