Alec Marsh, RHP, Reagan College Prep, 2016
Arizona State

Alec Marsh3/15/15- Plus athletic frame, 6-foot-2, 200-pound right-handed pitcher, lean strength, well proportioned. One of the best available 2016 pitchers in the Midwest. High level arm with possible draft follow in 2016. Repeatable athletic delivery, good tempo and feel, pounds the one with three pitches. Arm action is clean and loose, quick strong arm, high ¾ slot, projectable. Fastball has late finish, occasionally heavier feel, sat 90-92 mph, good control with the ability to command it. Advanced secondary stuff matches fastball. Curveball has depth, mostly 11/5 action, hard late breaking ball with power feel, 71-73 mph. Excellent feel for changeup, fastball arm speed, good sinking action, ability to command, swing and miss potential, 77-80 mph. High follow prospect should be one of the more coveted arms currently in the 2016 class.

Gavin Lux, SS, Indian Trail, 2016
Arizona State

Gavin Lux6/8/15- 6-foot-2, 170-pound, left-handed hitting shortstop with a thin, athletic frame. Body projects to add more strength especially in the upper half. No. 1 rated player in the Wisconsin class of 2016. No. 10 in PBR Overall ranks. Currently uncommitted. Gap to gap hitter at the plate with some pop. Shows the ability to consistently barrel up pitches all around the zone. Big leg lift trigger, gets front foot down and keeps hands back, allowing him to square up pitches with authority. Short path to the ball. 4.29 down the line on a groundout. Plus hands in the field with a quick transfer. Smooth, athletic actions, with fluid footwork. Solid arm strength from short. 89 mph across the infield in the winter. Should receive big time draft interest this summer and next spring.
