"Played a pivotal role in the Old Abes’ state playoff run and a strong showing at the Top Prospect - Milwaukee event helped shoot him up our board, now sitting at 40th overall. O’Connell is built at a proportionally strong 5-foot-10, 175-pounds with athleticism to pair, as he ran a 6.76 in the 60-yard dash this July. He owns a fairly loud skill-set on the diamond, barreling his best ball up at 101 mph in BP and throwing an event-high 89 mph across the infield. Those skills translate well in game, where O’Connell regularly produced loud contact off the barrel when we saw him throughout the WIAA Playoffs and at this year’s Badger State Battle. He offers some two-way potential as well, bumping his fastball up to 88 mph and featuring a sharp breaking ball with swing-and-miss spin off an 11/5 plane."

O'Connell may have walked away from our Top Prospect-Milwaukee event as one of the bigger risers in the 2022 class. Just inside the top 100, O’Connell is an athletic 5-foot-10, 175-pounds and ran a 6.76 in the 60, showed an 89 mph arm across the diamond and put up one of the top exit velos, finishing his round with a 101 mph shot to left field. O’Connell carried it over to game play as well showing strong bat to ball skills and ability to get to the same hard hit contact he showed in BP.
