3/29/24

Currently ranked No. 7 in the state, No. 346 in the country. Premier athlete with loud tools across the board, started in centerfield and hit out of the three-hole in this look. Twitchy right-handed hitter, creates easy bat-speed through the zone, looks to stay on top of the baseball, left the yard with a towering home run to left field. Easy range in the outfield, quick first step with athletic strides, takes charge and controls the position with confidence. Continues to establish himself as a draft follow throughout the spring.

2/19/24

We were eager to get our eyes on OF Nate George (Minooka, 2024) at our ProCase earlier this winter, but he unfortunately had to miss it due to illness. It was well worth the wait, as George further cemented his status as a true draft prospect this past Monday. Listed at a strong and highly athletic 6-foot, 200-pounds with sloped shoulders and a developed lower-half, George got his event going with a 6.39 in the 60, the best in-event by nearly .40 seconds. The right-handed hitter put on a show in BP, averaging 97.9 mph for his exit velocity with a max of 102.4 mph, also reaching up to 389’ for his max distance. He has a strong and athletic swing, using controlled aggression with a fluid, flat path to work loud hard contact up the middle and to his pull-side with natural lift at times. His athleticism was easily noticed in his round of defense as well, showcasing quick feet with athletic actions and a bounce in his step. He’s always had a strong arm, but it appears to have gotten even better; topping out at 96 mph from an athletic crow hop and quick ¾ release. High-level prospect that shoulder garner plenty of pro attention this coming spring.

8/02/23

George is a high-caliber player that has consistently impressed in front of our staff throughout the summer circuit. To start, the 6-foot, 190-pound right-handed hitting outfielder possesses elite athleticism, previously running a 6.39 second 60 yard dash at the Lockport Preseason I.D. He would continue his success on Friday, combining his advanced bat-speed and bat-to-ball skills to launch a home-run to left-field. A free mover in the outfield with a strong arm, George has the tools to remain in centerfield at the next level. Currently ranked No. 12 in the state and No. 332 nationally. Will be a fun player to watch as he enters his senior year.

Eastern Illinois commit. Proportionate and strong 6-foot, 190 pound frame. On the barrel all day. Short and compact swing that keeps the barrel in the zone for a long time. Hands move with ease as well. Ulta-quick out of the box with aggressive instincts on the basepaths. Athletic defender with quick, accurate reads, covers ground easily to pair with a strong arm. Final Line: 3-for-4, 3 RBI, 2 R, 2B, 3B.

He recorded 41 hits and 42 RBIs in 108 ABs this spring and was perfect in the outfield, committing no errors. George is currently the twelfth-ranked prospect in the Illinois 2024 class and continues to impress at every look.

5/25/23

Eastern Illinois commit. Currently ranked No. 12 in the state. Athletic build, 6-foot, 190-pounds with lean strength, still has room for added physical development. Impressive athlete, uses his speed to his advantage in all aspects of his game, most notable on the basepaths, always looking to take the extra base with good instincts. Scored the lone run of the game by recording a single and then proceeding to steal second, third and then home on a passed ball. Recorded a 4.07 home to first time on an infield ground ball. Showcased above-average bat to ball skills, staying short and athletic with his hands to barrel up the baseball. Athletic defender with reliable hands, quick first step and easy reads, covers ground easily. Arm is strong and plays with life to his target (T94 mph in-event). High-follow 2024 prospect.

Eastern Illinois commit. 6-foot, 190-pound, twitchy, athletic, right-handed hitting outfielder. Was one of the biggest winners coming off the winter showcase season where he showed some of the most dynamic set of tools in the class. Ran a 6.39, was 94 mph from the outfield to go along with a 103.7 mph max exit velocity and 377’ max batted ball distance. George started in center field and hit in the two-hole for Minooka. He finished 1-for-4 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. His biggest swing of the day was a two-run double in the bottom of the third inning that helped break the game open. Aggressive mentality in the box, ready to hit approach and minimal swing-and-miss on the day. Ball flashed jump off the barrel, especially on a hard ground ball to the third baseman that resulted in a fielder's choice. Gets out of the box quick and athletic, high-motor on the bases. Talented junior who continues to impress every time we see him.

OF/RHP Nate George (Minooka, 2024), a recent Eastern Illinois commit, put together an eye-opening performance, led by his 6.39 60-yard dash on the Swift Timing System. That 60-time was head and shoulders above the rest of the pack, with the second-best time coming in at 6.65. At the plate, he continued his strong day, showing elite bat speed for his age, taking violent controlled hacks while staying on the barrel and peppering the left-center field gap with loud contact. George led the field with a 103.7 max exit velocity, as well as a 376’ max batted ball. Defensively, George is highly athletic, as backed up by his 60; moving through the ball with intent and active footwork before transitioning into an athletic crow hop. His arm is clean and fluid throughout its’ path, playing with easy life and accuracy while reaching up to 94 mph. The 6-foot, 190-pound, on-the-rise junior also hopped on the mound and topped at 88.9 mph.

A muscular 6-foot, 175-pound athlete, George averaged 90.3 mph off his right-handed barrel, peaking at 96.7 mph and sending his furthest batted ball 357 feet, per TrackMan. Though he didn’t run at this event, George has run as fast as a 6.64 60 at our events in the past and he jumped 31.3 inches on the vertical test, too. That night, George hopped on the mound and pumped his fastball at 82-85 mph with hard arm-side action at times. He landed a 66-70 mph curveball around the zone for strikes and faded his low-70s changeup, too.

OF/RHP Nate George (Minooka) was one of the more intriguing 2024’s in attendance on Monday. The athletically built 5-foot-11, 165-pound sophomore is a dynamic athlete who can impact the game in a number of ways. George started his day by floating around the outfield with athletic actions, quick feet and strong arm that topped at 89 mph. He the proceeded to run a 6.64, the top 60-yard dash of the event. The talented right-handed hitter then got in the box and showed off an athletic, aggressive swing with quick strong hands and all kinds of jump off the barrel (95 mph max exit velocity) given his wiry-strong frame. The two-way prospect capped his day with a highly-intriguing ‘pen, proving that his athleticism easily transfers over to the mound. With a compact/repeatable delivery and clean arm, his fastball worked up to 84.6 mph with ride through the zone and life out of the hand. He used a curveball with short 10/4 action to play off a similar plane, consistently landing it in the zone for strikes at 69-70 mph. With a straight changeup kept down in the zone at 74-76 mph, he showed a promising third offering to keep would-be hitters off balance. High-follow 2024 prospect to know moving forward.
