Need To Know: NOVA Uncommitted 2024's
January 19, 2023
As we approach the spring season, we would like to highlight some uncommitted players from across the state that you should get out and see this spring.
The 2024 class has plenty of talent left on the board and today we take a look at four uncommitted juniors from NOVA.
My first two looks on Ryan Perkins came this fall. The first in game viewing showed some fluctuation in the fastball velo, but it was easy to see there was some arm talent there. A few weeks later we saw him at our Pro 5 Scout Day and once again the arm talent impressed. Consistency will be key, but there is plenty of upside to this right hander.
James Beasley had a strong summer on the travel/showcase circuit. We first saw Beasley last winter at a Preseason All-State and obviously the first thing that jumps is the size. The 6-foot-7 right hander is primed for a breakout spring for Herndon.
Noah Toole was a standout player when we saw him this summer. Long lanky frame with versatility. Athleticism is abundant with Toole and that is not a surprise, as he is a three sport star at Oakton. Switch hitter that may stick in the left handed box long term. If you are looking for a long, left handed hitting shortstop (who isn't?) then he is definitely worth the watch.
Jake Drumm has dominated the high school scene for two years. Throwing forty innings at Lake Braddock his freshman year and not surrendering a walk, then becoming staff ace as a sophomore, and now 2023 has a chance to be Drumm's biggest year yet. The mid 80's arm looks to come to the forefront of the conversation for best uncommitted arms in NOVA.
