At the top of the list is a former Team Illinois representative at the 2021 PBR Future Games, OF William Hill (Brooks, 2023). Hill offers all kinds of upside to his game, including his long-limbed 6-foot-1, 170-pound, high-waisted frame fit with high athleticism. Hill cruised to an event-low 60-yard dash time (6.57), doing so with minimal effort. He then proceeded to show off the twitchy, upside right-handed swing we have become accustomed to seeing. Hill’s round was inconsistent at times but, when it syncs up, there is all kinds of twitch, bat speed and the ball jumps off his barrel. Hill topped at 97.2 mph off the barrel, along with a max distance of 332 feet. Hill also registered the top max bat speed at the event (76.8 mph) and third in average hand speed (22.9). On top of that, the smooth outfielder showed off easy/athletic actions and a loose arm with carry on his throws that reached an 88 mph high to home. When it comes to uncommitted position players in the Illinois’ 2023 class, Hill features one of the higher ceilings.

Uncommitted, currently ranked 21 in the Illinois’ 2023 class. 6-foot-2, 175-pound right-handed hitting outfielder; slender athletic build, long arms and legs; has plenty of room to fill out.  Offensively stands tall, wide base, hands high, short stride, smooth load. Short, handsy, twitchy swing. Creates above average bat speed.  Earlier in the season he homered in 4 straight games. Defensively has long arms and long legs, he uses long strides to cover large amounts of ground in the outfield; potential center field profile at the next level. Long, loose arm action which generates strong accurate throws.  High Follow 2023 prospect.
