Pacific Northwest Fall: Uncommitted '24s & '25s
October 28, 2021
The fall season provided some early looks at the next wave of talent coming out of the Pacific Northwest. Recent years have cemented the region’s ability to produce high end talent with a bevy of first round selections in the MLB Draft, and the underclass groups are, at an early stage, shaping up to continue that trend. Just in the state of Washington, more than half of the top 20 players in the 2024 state are already committed to college programs with multiple 2025s having already pledged commitments as well. The depth is quickly starting to show, and a couple looks at some of the top uncommitted 2024 and 2025s from Oregon and Washington this fall uncovered many new names to know.
Will Cahill OF / RHP / Seattle Prep, WA / 2025
Cahill made a loud impression at the Underclass Fall Classic at Oregon State, and was firmly in the conversation as the top player at the entire event. At 6-foot-2, 168-pounds, the frame oozes projection with present fluidity to the athleticism. Hitting each ball with authority from the first pitch of batting practice, Cahill posted multiple 90+ exit velocities (92.8 max) with a max distance of 328 feet. The left-handed slugger is balanced in his approach from a slightly crouched base. The hands start low, below the shoulder, triggering back with quick coil before a fluid flat path is shown. Strong wrists and quick hands provide advanced bat speed with some lag present in the zone as he gets quality use of the lower-half. Also showing some upside on the mound with a fast arm, the intangibles on the day stood almost as much as the future hit-tool. There is a quiet confidence to the way he carries himself, and Cahill’s in-game at-bats saw swings with controlled aggression including the ability to hit off-time. Overall, the young outfielder is clearly a name for college coaches to follow as he continues to progress in coming years.
