Uncommitted, ranked No. 30 in the Illinois’ 2023 class. Athletic, 6-foot-3 170-pound frame, plenty of room for continued development. Looks to be one of the more polished right-handed arms in the Illinois 2023 class. Started on the mound for Brother Rice going four scoreless innings with four strikeouts. Clean arm action plays from a ¾ slot. Repeatable, fluid delivery. Leg-lift is athletic and gets to a good/strong balance point. Body stays under control going down the mound. Strides in-line with the plate, repeats. Fastball worked at 83-85 mph with sink and feel for the corners of the zone. Curveball was his go-to secondary pitch; sat 71-74 mph with sharp slurvy shape, showed the ability to throw it in any count. Featured a changeup at 77 mph with the same arm action as his fastball and kept down in the zone. Follow right-handed arm in the Illinois’ 2023 class.

Uncommitted. 6-foot-4, 165-pound, long-limbed, high-waisted, projectable right-handed pitcher. Continues to improve and impress everytime we see him. Arm plays clean and compact, highly-repeatable, low-effort delivery. Advanced polish for his age; controls the game, poised on the mound, rarely shows emotion, mixes timing and looks with runners on base, does not lose stuff out of the stretch. High-volume of strikes, four-pitch mix, works down in the zone, both sides of the plate with his fastball. Fastball works mostly straight, occasional angle and late run, 82-84 mph in the early going. Slider was go-to secondary offering on this day; feel for the zone, manipulates pitch and location depending on count. Comfortable throwing his changeup to right or left handed batters. Late sinking action, maintains arm speed, sat in the low-70’s. Polished 2023 right-handed pitcher with upside.


6-foot-4, 165-pound, long-limbed, projectable right-handed pitcher. Took the tough loss in the semi-final game for Cangelosi Sparks 2023's. Clean, easy arm, threw a high-volume of strikes and competed throughout. Went 5.1 innings pitched, scattered six hits, no earned runs, walked two and struck out three. Follow 2023 right-handed arm.
