3/31/18 Spring Scout Blog: Almost a dozen pro scouts were in to see the #1 player ranked in the state, #34 ranked overall in the country. The 6-foot-2, ultra competitive and athletic twitch prospect did not disappoint, showcasing on the mound, at the plate, and centerfield. Started game 1 and went 4.0IP, giving up 6 Hs, 2 ERs, only 1BB, and struck out 7 CG hitters. Fastball was 89-91, touching a 92 in the second inning, showed command of the pitch to both sides of the plate. Changeup was a plus pitch with arm side fade at 74-75 to LHH, missed bats for strikeouts. Flipped in an average breaking ball with good shape at 76-77, kept hitters off balance. Advanced swing and bat speed at the plate, hit hard line drives pull side with carry in both games, easy left handed swing with power. Finished 2-6 on the day, made couple loud outs to CF and RF, 1 RBI, couple runs scored. Tracked a ball to deep CF in second game, runs and strides easy, made catch against the fence. Big time upside with advanced tools, will have a decision to make at end of season.
6/27/17 Midwest Prospect League:  Quiet, rhythmic and simple, yet he generates the same electric bat speed with his hands. In a game against the Wisconsin Hitters, he went 3-for-3 with a double and two runs scored. He also showed off his plus athleticism with a diving catch in centerfield and flying around the bases. Overall, he’s a high-level quick-twitch athlete with wiry strength and plenty of room for continued physical development. It’s easy to dream on the upside as he begins to gain more strength.

4/1/17 Game Notes: 
Schnell displayed his advanced athleticism on the bases and in the field. The 6-foot-2 Louisville commit is balanced and athletic at the plate with a leg kick and quick bat. Drives fastball to left-center gap but can be a gap-gap power guy with plenty of extra base power potential. Showed off an extremely strong CF arm and good range. Swiped a few bags at first and second. Very active in all facets. Plays game with confidence.

10/8/16: Louisville commit, No. 7 ranked player in Indiana, 57th overall in 2018 class.  The 6-foot-2 170 pound outfielder impressed on the mound this weekend.  In his first outing, fastball sat 86-88 with slight run.  Later that day, he popped a 92 and a 93 while sitting 86-89.  Arm action is loose with a fast hands.  Creates downhill angle with an athletic delivery.  Schnell also showed off the bat with a triple into the gap as he seemed to hit the next gear as he got to second base.  Very high end athlete with versatility.
