Notes

Comments

4/15/24

Uncommitted. Currently ranked No. 74 in the state, Adams batted leadoff for the Caravan and continued to show a knack for getting on base. The athletic 5-foot-10, 175-pound left-handed hitter has a disciplined approach at the plate, and also makes consistent contact at the dish. Adams is a fluid mover in centerfield as well with natural and comfortable actions. He came in to get two outs on the mound for the Caravan and pounded the zone with a fastball/curveball pitch-mix. Adams has consistently shown to be a scrappy top-of-the-order bat and the tablesetter for the Caravan offense in 2024.

4/06/24

Uncommitted. Currently ranked No. 74 in the state, Adams got on base four times out of the leadoff spot for the Caravan. Adams consistently worked deep counts against the De La Salle pitching staff, drawing two walks in the game to go with his two singles. From the left side, the athletic 5-foot-10, 175-pound outfielder has a simple setup in the box, using a toe tap trigger, swinging with an athletic and level path. Adams also showed natural actions in centerfield; taking efficient routes to the ball, and proving to have a strong arm in-game that has played up to 89 mph for our staff in showcase settings.

2/24/24

OF Kolin Adams (Mount Carmel) showed well in a number of different categories over the weekend. He started his day by cruising to a 6.84 in the 60 with a peak run-speed of 20.5 mph, also recording a 32” vertical. He gave a polished look throughout his round of BP, looking to use the whole field and take the ball where it is pitched, staying through the zone with a flat path and balanced finish. He has a patient glove in the outfield with clean hands and footwork, reaching up to 89 mph from a crow hop.

9/12/23

A speedy left-handed hitting centerfielder - Adams was on the barrel often due to a quick & balanced left-handed stroke with whip in the barrel. The athletic, 5-foot-10, 175 pounder with compact strength delivered barrel after barrel in my looks, looking the part of a potential top-of-the-order bat at the next level. A 6.84 runner, Adams also offers above average arm strength from the OF (88 mph OF Velo).

7/18/23

Kolin Adams (Mount Carmel, 2025) is a talented left/left outfielder who hit at the top of the varsity lineup and started in center field for Mount Carmel this spring.  Adams continues to show well everytime we see him. Offensively, the 5-foot-10, 174-pound left-handed hitter has highly athletic hands that are present in his swing, manipulating the barrel, creating whip with above-average bat-to-ball skills. The 7.04 runner was on the barrel throughout (80%), consistently sending line drives (60%) to the big part of the diamond.  Adams' arm played at 85 mph from the outfield.

5/27/23

Uncommitted. 5-foot-9, 172-pound, left/left outfielder currently ranked No. 63 in the Illinois’ 2025 class. Started in center field and hit leadoff. Finished 1-for-4 with two runs scored. Lined a single to center field in his third at-bat and was 4.40 on the turn. Confident and poised in the box, handles velocity and uses the whole field. Loose, athletic hands, natural lift through the zone and took a number of quality at-bats. Defensively, sneaky range and actions in the outfield. Quick first step, confident reads and tracked one ball that was hit deep into the gap with relative ease. 2025 left-handed hitting outfielder to follow moving forward.

3/01/23

A trio of left-handed hitting outfielders to follow from the day were Kolin Adams (Mount Carmel), Brady Schallmoser (Downers Grove North) and Joey Arend (St. Charles East). Arend, who topped at 89 mph from the outfield also showed intrigue on the mound,with a loose, athletic arm, mid-80s fastball and two above-average secondary offerings.

8/10/22

OF Kolin Adams (Mount Carmel, 2025) was one of the youngest players in attendance, but at no point seemed overmatched. The left/left outfielder took quality at-bats all event long with plate discipline and feel to hit on the barrel. On a single to right-field he recorded a 4.65 down the line on a turn; later barreling another single and scoring a run. Polished left-handed hitter that should continue to ascend as his strength and tools tick up.

Vizual Edge: 75.98 Edge Score

7/28/22

One of the top 2025s in attendance looked to be left/left outfielder Kolin Adams (Mount Carmel). Adams has a repeatable, polished swing at the plate, especially given his age. He stays balanced, and calm throughout, letting the ball travel deep in the zone while showing loose, quick hands and the ability to handle the barrel. Adams sprayed hard line-drive contact to all fields. Defensively, he plays with smooth, easy actions and his arm topped at 82 mph from the outfield.

Defense: Soft hands, confident footwork, clean exchange.
Run: 7.38 runner in the 60. 

2/19/22

Another freshman outfielder to make his presence felt at the event was left/left Kolin Adams (Mount Carmel, 2025). Adams put together one of the more polished rounds of BP on the day, made even more impressive due to his age. Adams stays balanced through a highly repeatable swing with advanced feel for the barrel and loose, athletic hands. He sprayed hard contact to all fields while staying simple and within himself. Adams’ peak exit velocity was recorded at 83.5 mph with his average at 79.6, underscoring how much he was on the barrel throughout his round, underscored by a sweep spot rate of 72 percent, the third highest of the event. Adams' hit tool should only continue to ascend as he adds strength and physicality to his young 5-foot-8, 144-pound frame. Defensively, he showed clean, efficient actions, receptive hands and a clean, accurate arm that topped at 79 mph, and he began the day with a 7.51 time in the laser-timed 60-yard dash. This was a strong PBR event debut for the 2025 left/left prospect, and he’s a name to know moving forward.

2/19/22

Body: 5-8, 144-pounds.
Hit: LHH. Wide, balanced setup. Toe-taps into a long stride. Fluid load. Fluid rhythm. Simple, quiet swing. Loose hands. Stays inside the baseball at times. Feel for the barrel. Ability to use the whole field. Polished swing with upside.
