On the Hunt: Uncommitted Standouts from Super 17 Tournament

By Shooter Hunt

The throngs of college recruiters in attendance at Diamond Nation in Flemington, New Jersey for the Super 17 Tournament were treated to a bounty of riches that are the vast amount of talented uncommitted players from the Mid-Atlantic and New England (and even North Carolina and Georgia). Overcast days on Friday and Saturday made for pleasant recruiting weather, and the coaches in attendance were able to bear down on some of their future players. With more than 75 teams in attendance, PBR and On the Hunt were in attendance to check out some of the top talent. Below are 12 of the players that stood out with their talent, play, or projection on the weekend.

NOTE: Top players from the Garden State Underclass Showcase will be featured next week in a separate segment with video




Nick Dean RHP / 3B / Bensalem, PA / 2019

Dean drew one of the biggest crowds to his outing, and he did not disappoint. Pitching in relief of fellow standout, Colten Smith, Dean featured a fastball that sat 87-88 and touched 90. He has a pitcher’s build at a lanky, 6-foot-2, 185-pounds, and looks like he can easily add another 25 pounds before college. His arm works long and loose with quick hand speed, and he showed control of his fastball to both sides of the plate with a repeatable delivery and high ¾ slot. His breaking ball took 11/5 shape, and has a chance to develop into a swing and miss pitch in the future. Dean is going to throw harder in the future, and has a chance to become a frontline starter at the next level.
