4/23/21

Notre Dame commit, currently ranked No. 4 in Illinois. Muscular 6-foot 190-pound frame. Highly athletic, quick feet with a strong arm in the infield. Lightning quick hands on the transfer. Made impressive plays in pregame warmups showing off his effortless range with strong throws to first base. Made a great forehand play up the middle in-game robbing a hit by running all the way from the hole in short to behind second base to cut off the ball and turn his body to fire a strong throw to first. Offensively, the right-handed hitter starts in an athletic stance. Uses a leg-kick to maintain rhythm and timing in his swing. Utilizes lower-half throughout the swing, creating a lot of power and loud contact. Drove a three-run home run to left-field. Ball jumps off the bat. Profiles on the infield at the next level, arguably is the best defender in the state. High-level 2021 prospect.

Strong-bodied infielder and Notre Dame commit who showed average arm strength (90 mph) with fair accuracy from a high slot at shortstop. Playing with four stitches in his foot, the 6-foot, 185-pound DeMarco showed the actions of a middle infielder, but his body type and range profile best to third base at the college level. Had good bat strength with effort to his swing in the batter’s box. Pulls off the ball, but gets good use of his lower half. Top exit velocity during BP was 96.7 mph and farthest ball hit 356’. Short to the ball (0.14 seconds) with 21.9 mph of peak hand speed and a ProCase low 1 degree attack angle per Blast.

Notre Dame commit, currently ranked No. 6 in the Illinois’ 2021 class. 5-foot-11, 180-pound, two-way prospect; strong, athletic build, defined lower half. Started at shortstop and hit in the four-hole. Highly-advanced infielder, smooth confident hands, ultra-quick transfer when needed and ability to throw from any arm slot. Made a number of tough plays, ranging to both sides; maintains body control, strong, accurate arm that carries across the infield. Ability to stick at shortstop moving forward. Offensively, right-handed hitter, finished 0-for-2 with a HBP. Ran a 4.40 down the line on a groundout. Balanced setup, flashed easy bat speed. Came in to close out the game in the seventh inning. Went three-up, three-down, striking out a pair. Arm works long and quick from an over-the-top slot. Fastball jumps through the zone, worked mostly straight, occasional run to the arm side, sat 87-88 mph. Mixed in a swing-and-miss curveball with depth and bite, 74-75 mph. High-upside on the mound and as a position player. Rare two-way potential at the next level.
