Drake had some of my favorite swings of the day, turning an electric barrel through the hitting zone that produced the furthest batted ball of the day (400'). An Indiana recruit - Drake has real, next-level bat speed with immense twitch in the left-handed stroke. Reaching a peak exit velocity of 101.9 mph, Drake appears to be a run-producer at the next-level, and his foot speed has improved (6.79). Drake is one of the top position player prospects in the class, making huge strides in his development over the past twelve months, and his arm from the outfield (89 mph) has a chance to be an impact tool, as well.
9/24/23

Positional Profile: OF/OF
Body: 6-1, 190-pounds. Wiry, athletic build
Hit: LHH. Hits from a balanced setup with loose hands pre-pitch. Controls a toe tap stride with a slight barrel lift to trigger the swing - smooth tempo throughout the load. Whips the barrel through the hitting zone with present bat speed. Rotational path that works uphill. Present pull-side power
Power: 99 max exit velocity, averaged 90.7 mph. 385' max distance.
Arm: RH. OF-89 mph. Longer, full arm swing with very good arm speed.
Defense: Bounce in the feet, looks to attack downhill. Hands are soft and work out front. Athleticism present
ATH: 7.08 runner in the 60.

After showing well for the past couple of weeks, OF Noah Drake (Castle, 2024; Indiana commit) continued to do the same over the weekend. From the left side of the plate, Drake presents a smooth swing that showcased easy power to the pull-side in his matchup early on Saturday morning. Drake racked up two doubles, displaying his 6.95-second 60-yard dash on the basepaths in a win for Top Tier Americans. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete currently sits at No. 34 in a loaded 2025 class in the state of Indiana, looking to continue that trend in the winter and eventually the spring.
