With the 2014 high school season quickly approaching here’s a quick look at four of our seniors that have already committed to collegiate programs for the fall of 2014…
Central Michigan University
Plymouth Christian Academy
PBR on Daniel – Jipping was perhaps the biggest surprise at the showcase (Pre-Season All-State). He has plus power at the plate and registered a showcase best 96 mph on the exit velocity. Jipping is a pure hitter that does not get cheated. For being 6-foot-3, 210-pounds, Jipping can also move, running a 6.87. The area he needs to improve is with his arm strength. Jipping should not fly under the radar for long.
University of Toledo
Hartland High School
PBR on Alex – One of the best surprises at the Top Prospect Games. Sat 83-84mph with the fastball. 6-foot-3, 170-pound lefty. Good physical projection. Threw three pitches for strikes with command. Smooth delivery. When down in the zone produces a lot of groundballs. Has a tendency to open lower half creating some arm drag which may lead to balls being elevated from time to time.
Notre Dame Prep
PBR on Aidan – Tightly wound and physical with a wide back and durability at 5 foot 10 and 185 pounds. Aidan has some juice in the bat with hand speed and repeats his swing with feel for the barrel. An energetic and alert defender, Aidan knows only one speed and is a tough and fearless competitor. One of our favorites at Top Prospect Games.
Notre Dame Prep
PBR on Nick – Big strong bodied corner player. Best suited for first base long term but can certainly play third some as well. Took good swings at the plate. Drove the ball and had good extension in his swing. Uses his hands well and stay simple. Seems to have a good motor and drive. On the mound shows solid mechanics with some recoil. Fastball sat 79-81mph. Breaking ball has 10-4 slider action at 61-63mph. Change has lots of arm side run.
