Notes

Comments

4/19/24

Uncommitted. Currently ranked No. 34 in the state. 5-foot-10, 190-pound frame, some strength throughout his build. Started behind the plate and hit out of the three-hole for the Red Devils, recording two hits on the day with a double, single and an RBI. Strong right-handed swing, flat path, creates some bat-speed through the zone, controlled aggression. Strong defender behind the plate with steady hands, active blocker, limits the run game with a quick glove-to-hand, strong arm plays with life and carry, plays true and on the bag. High-follow 2026 prospect.

2/24/24

Another physical right-handed hitter with impressive data from this past weekend is C/1B Dylan Kassab (Hinsdale Central, 2026). The 5-foot-10, 190-pound sophomore produced seven batted ball outputs at 94+ mph, with three at 97+ mph that includes a 97.7 mph high. Kassab’s Blast Motion metrics, on average, are all advanced for his age; average hand speed (23.5 mph), average bat speed (75.6 mph) and average rotational acceleration (23.1 g). Defensively, Kassab peaked at 78 mph from the chute - one of the day’s hardest throws - and he popped in the 2.00-to-2.05 range.

2/24/24

Positional Profile: C/1B
Body: 5-11, 190-pounds. Strong, durable frame.
Hit: RHH. Wide, open setup, knee-knocks into a medium stride. Strong hands, flat path, on the barrel up the middle of the field with line-drives and some elevated contact. 75.6 mph bat speed with 23 G’s of rotational acceleration.
Power: 98 max exit velocity, averaged 93.1 mph. 315’ max distance.
Arm: RH. C - 78 mph. Short arm circle, high 3/4 release.
Defense: 2.00-2.05 pop times. Sure-handed receiver, works to present pitches around the zone for strikes, clean transfer, works in-line on throws.
Run: 7.12 runner in the 60.

8/27/23

Dylan Kassab (Hinsdale Central, 2026) is coming off a strong summer and he showed no slowing down at the Chicagoland Open. The 5-foot-11, 190-pound, physical right-handed hitter swings with controlled intent and well above-average bat speed for his age; averaged 80.9 mph, T84.1 mph bat speed according to Blast. Kassab stayed on the barrel with authority for much of his round with a highly-impressive 93.7 mph average exit velocity, 100% hard hit percentage and also launched his furthest batted ball 350’. The 7.08 runner (led the event) also got behind the plate and was on the bag out of the crouch at 71 mph and a low pop time of 2.11. Right-handed bat to follow closely in the 2026 class. 

8/27/23

Positional Profile: C

Hit: RHH. Narrow stance, high hands start, toe tap to medium stride.

3/01/23

Dylan Kassab (Hinsdale Central, 2026) took a notable round of BP and has made some significant strides to his game, adding seven mph to his catcher velocity (now T78 mph) and reducing his pop-time down to 2.07 seconds. The 5-foot-10, 180-pound, solidly-built, right-handed hitter was also creating loud, consistent hard lifted contact off the bat, registering a 351’ max batted ball with a 96.7 mph peak exit velocity. The most impressive stat however was the frequency he was on the barrel, resulting in a 93.4 average exit velocity. If Kassab’s big tools translate to the field, he will be a name to know in the 2026 class.

4/13/22

Another member of the 2026 class that showed well in multiple aspects was Dylan Kassab (Hinsdale Central). Kassab started his day by running a 7.42 60-yard dash; then proceeded to hop behind the plate and lead the event in pop-time (2.14) as well as catcher velocity (71 mph). His arm strength translated easily to the mound, where he reached up to 81.3 mph, third best in the event.
