With the early signing period coming to a close for 2013's, we wanted to switch gears and begin focusing on players in the 2014 class that you may not know, but that are players we expect to make a big impact this coming season.
Gage Rogers is a 2014 do it all player from Bloomington South HS. When we say he does it all, we mean he can literally play almost every position on the field. Rogers' primary position is still a question mark, which is actually a good thing at this point. He is athletic enough in the outfield, moves well enough up the middle, and was up to 87 this summer on the mound. His older brother is Nolan Rogers, a senior, that is committed to Vanderbilt as an outfielder. Though he has not been given the same hype as his older brother, Rogers is a very good player in his own right. The junior is a right handed hitter with plenty of arm strength to play anywhere on the field. He may be the most debated 2014 player in the class because of his versatility. Rogers is a member of the Indiana Prospects
Logan Sowers is a 2014 out of McCutcheon HS. He is a tall athletic outfielder at 6-foot-3, and runs under a 7.0 60. Sowers possesses above average arm strength,and his bat plays at the Division One level. Sowers is a kid that could make a huge jump in the eyes of recruiters in the coming months. McCutcheon should make a deep run in the playoffs which will allow more schools to see Sowers during the high school season. Sowers will play this summer with the Indiana Bulls.
Zach McKinstry is a 2014 middle infielder from Fort Wayne North Side HS. He is an extremely interesting prospect who ran a 7.07 60 in February 2012, and imagine that number is much better now. He hits from the left side and has plenty of arm strength (85 across the diamond). Actions wise, McKinstry is one of the top defensive shortstops in the class. McKinstry plays his summer ball with the Fort Wayne Cubs.
