Verbally committed to Creighton.

8/01/23

 A right-handed bat that showed juice in spurts throughout the week: INF Nathan O’Donnell(Providence Catholic, 2025). The 6-foot-1, 190-pound O’Donnell took one of the more impressive BP rounds for Team Illinois, blasting balls on repeat into the right-center gap from an intentful right-handed swing. His furthest ball traveled 367 feet, per TrackMan, while his firmest jumped off his barrel at 97.7 mph, averaging 89.3 mph per batted ball. Aside from his BP at the workout, O’Donnell repeated his efforts before Team Illinois’ second game, hitting six straight balls off the left-center wall in pre-game batting practice, and he also barreled a loud double that way in his first at-bat of the event against Pennsylvania. Also, a follow on the mound, O’Donnell, got one inning in Game two of the event where he flashed his three-pitch repertoire and remains an arm to follow in the class. Name to know in the 2025 class following the Future Games. 

7/26/23

INF Nathan O’Donnell (Providence Catholic, 2025) was another Illinois infielder who was all over the barrel with some authority during BP. O’Donnell, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound, right-handed hitter, swung with controlled aggression, was on time and hammered baseballs to the big part of the diamond throughout, with balls jumping off the barrel at times. O’Donnell peaked at 97.7 mph off the bat, 89.1 average and launched his furthest batted ball 367’. He also registered four balls over 350’ and three balls came off the bat at 96+ mph. Defensively he is a steady corner infield defender who ran a 7.07 60 and topped at 85 mph across. 

4/08/23

Uncommitted. 6-foot-1, 180-pound, well-proportioned, athletically-built, right-handed hitting two-way prospect. Got the start on the mound and hit in the five-hole. Was impressive on the mound, showing a polished three-pitch mix throughout while pounding the zone at an above-average rate (71% strikes on 42 pitches). Worked four innings, scattered three hits, one run, struck out four and walked one. Clean, compact arm action plays out of a high ¾ slot with seemingly much more velocity to come. Repeated well throughout and plays with minimal effort down the mound. Fastball works mostly straight, occasional arm-side-action, controlled the zone and sat 81-83 mph throughout (was up to 87.9 mph this winter). Curveball is an above average offering at 74-75 mph with 11/5 shape and depth. He also flashed a changeup at 76 mph with a feel for the zone. Offensively, he is equally as intriguing taking a number of quality at-bats and swings throughout. He finished 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI. He was consistently on-time while staying short and flat through the zone with twitchy, athletic hands and jump off the barrel. O'Donnell's biggest swing of the day was a two-run double deep down the right-field line. High-follow uncommitted sophomore with an advanced feel for the game and true two-way potential. 

3/01/23

3B/RHP Nathan O’Donnell (Providence Catholic, 2025) was yet another right-handed arm who should not put the bat down anytime soon. On the mound worked with a different kind of pace and intent to deliver an upper 80’s fastball at 86-88 mph. O’Donnel threw his curveball with similar conviction at 75-67 mph with 11/5 shape. The bulldog approach to his ‘pen was apparent and if carried over into the season, will impact his game performance even more than his stuff already does.

2/21/22

RHP/INF Nathan O’Donnell (Providence Catholic, 2025) flashed two-way intrigue to our scouts at Monday’s event. Offensively, O’Donnell showed quick hands with a short and level path to contact, staying on the barrel to all fields while covering the plate. On the mound, O’Donnell’s 83.2 mph max fastball velocity was the highest among freshmen at the event. It’s an efficient, true four-seamer that projects well as he continues to develop and add strength, and it doesn’t take him much effort to reach the low-80s, either. Defensively O’Donnell showcased an advanced feel for the infield. He has a loose arm and smooth actions. His top velocity on the infield was 83 mph which comes from a short, quick arm action and releases from a high ¾ arm slot. He has fluid footwork and clean hands that allowed him to stand out in the infield.
