He’s established himself as one of the top players in Illinois’ sophomore class already, and he took an advanced round of catcher defense on Sunday as further evidence of this – popping a 1.93 low while reaching an 83 mph high to second. That arm strength showed itself on the mound later in the day, an area he’s new to. Still, Schuyler required little effort to reach an 87 mph high from the rubber, and his 6-foot-2, 205-pound build makes him especially projectable here, should he decide to pitch with more regularity.

Schuyler was one of the “big winners” of the tournament, and cemented himself as a player to know in the 2023 class moving forward. Possessing a highly projectable, sturdy, 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame with athleticism, he is sure to have college coaches monitoring his progress in the near future. He first shined behind the plate, exhibiting natural feel for the position including loose hips and soft hands that allow him to receive well along with a strong arm that plays up thanks to smooth footwork. He threw out multiple runners, and looked the part the entire weekend. His defense alone makes him a player to follow, but his ability with the bat will likely boost him even more in the future. An easy rhythm from the right side allows the hands to separate back from the ear in conjunction with a leg kick before quickly working the barrel through the zone on a flat path. His ability to cover the entire plate with firm contact to all fields stood out, including multiple hits as well as hard outs. The frame is sure to pack on substantial strength moving forward, and as it does, I suspect there will be a boost in the power department. Interesting to note, Schuyler also moved well at third base, and his overall athleticism should provide for quicker advancements as he matures.
