The Uncommitted Spotlight Series continues as we have started the '24 CIF High School baseball season Prep Baseball California is now highlighting some of the top uncommitted class of '25 athletes. The players featured are pulled directly from our '25 Class Rankings. These JR year players are ones that college coaches and fans should be keeping their eyes on over the coming months.

We invite you to get to know them through the eyes of our Prep Baseball California staff of scouts and the data-backed numbers collected at our events with our partnered companies. TrackMan, Blast Motion, Swift Performance, and Visual Edge provide comparable data to project and evaluate players. All of these systems come together to give a clear picture at what colleges will get when a players steps onto their campus.

Today, we put the spotlight on a SoCal '25 1B/OF Aaron Jacobsen from Glendora High School. Kellogg is a physically built 6'3 205 lbs 1B/Corner OF defender with raw power in his bat and potential for him to be an impact bat. Jacobsen was a standout at the Prep Baseball California Preseason All State Upperclass event where he showed of is in the RH batters box with an impactful swing that features bat speed (81.5 MPH max), strength and quickness in his hands (24.1 MPH max), lift in his path (371' max distance),  with a middle to pull approach that shows a powerful offensive impact potential for him going forward. His raw power shows well reaching 97.7 MPH on his max exit velocity while consistently barreling baseballs with authority (92.6 MPH average exit velocity) for our staff. He is a solid mover at 1B who showed feel around the bag with his footwork and solid hands/feet with enough athleticism he could potentially play LF in the future. There is still game polish that is needed for Jacobsen but with his toolset in the box, physicality and strength in his frame Jacobsen is a name to keep eyes in the '25 class for college programs looking for impact pieces for their lineups no matter which position he winds up at.
