Top Uncommitted 2016 Players

By Justin Burgess

We have already wrapped up the first week of the regular season and we have already been provided with a healthy supply of exciting contests, upsets, and impressive performances by the top prospects and those are still somewhat under the radar. Today we will be focusing on the top uncommitted players in the 2016 class—whether they are still under the radar or are just searching for their ideal fit at the collegiate level.

Camryn Williams, SS, Gaither HS
Williams is one of the few players in the senior class who is not under the radar but still has not committed. Last summer he catapulted himself from being an intriguing prospect to now having a great chance of being drafted in June. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound SS possesses a lean, athletic, and live body with strength. He has great bat speed from both sides of the plate and proved at the Florida Diamond Club and Jupiter that he can consistently square up top-level pitching. Combine his bat with his defense—which is arguably the best in Florida for 2016—and you get a definite division I prospect who is still up for grabs.

Swindly Lint, SS, Highlands Christian
At 6-foot, 175 pounds, Lint has an athletic, lean, and live body that allows him to play all over the diamond. Although SS is his best position and makes him more valuable, he is still very flexible and can play third, second, and outfield at a high level. At the plate he has a short and quick swing with a nice plane through the zone that allows him to consistently hit line drives to all fields. Combine these tools with his above average speed and he appears to be the kind of player who could really blossom at the division I level. If he has a strong senior season, Lint also has a chance of being selected in the draft.

Travis MacGregor, RHP, East Lake HS
MacGregor stands at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds and has improved tremendously over the past eight months. In this brief amount of time, MacGregor has put on 15-20 pounds of muscle, gained 6-7 mph in velocity, and is now receiving the attention he deserves. Early in the summer he was topping out at 84-85 mph and now he is touching 91 mph fairly consistently. His frame, velocity, and loose arm action has begun to catch the attention of professional scouts. MacGregor is yet another division I prospect who is available and has a decent chance of being drafted.

Chris Demayo, LHP, Martin County HS
Demayo stands at 6-foot, 150 pounds with a narrow and athletic frame with quick-twitch muscles. He has a quick arm, fills up the zone with an 85-88 mph fastball, and he has an above average changeup and curveball. Demayo is probably the top uncommitted LHP in Florida and is certainly a division I prospect as he will gain more velocity with added weight and muscle.

Will West, RHP, Niceville HS
West is another uncommitted 6-foot-3 RHP who will be an asset for whatever school he decides to attend. His fastball sits in the 85-87 mph range but can touch 88-89 mph. He also shows off an above average slider at 74-76 mph and solid changeup that he also throws for strikes. West will definitely add more weight to his 185-pound frame which will help to add a few clicks to his velocity at the next level.
