IL/WI All-State Games: Preview

Illinois/Wisconsin Staff

The Class of 2021 All-State games will take place on Tuesday, July 2 at Triton College in River Grove, Illinois. The invite-only event will bring together some of the top incoming juniors in Illinois and Wisconsin.

The event will consist of a showcase in the morning, followed by gameplay in the afternoon. Last year’s inaugural Illinois/Wisconsin All-State Games already has nine Division I commits, with plenty more to come. RHP’s Jake Kuntzendorf (Aurora Christian; Purdue commit), Cooper Herold (Minooka; uncommitted) and Holden Phelps (Prairie Ridge; uncommitted) came away as three of the top prospects from the event. All three sat in the upper-80’s with Phelps touching 90. 

Looking at this year’s roster, there are plenty of names to keep an eye on. Some of the more notable Illinois arms on the list are LHP Cory Ronan (Routt Catholic), RHP Adam Brouwer (Chicago Christian). Ronan has a loose, quick arm and we have seen him up to 85 mph but reports have had him harder than that. Brouwer is a clean and easy right-hander that has plenty more in the tank with feel for pitching. Some other Illinois players to keep an eye on will be INF Shane Baumgarten (Wheaton Academy), C Ben Hartl (Springfield) and INF Ethan Bowers (Vernon Hills) among a number of others.

Shane Baumgarten (2.17.19)

The state of Wisconsin will also be well represented come Tuesday. RHP/3B Isaiah Cerfus (Union Grove) and RHP/SS Grant Ross (Pewaukee) are two intriguing prospects to look out for. Cerfus was recently up to 87 mph while Ross has been up to 88 mph and is a toolsy infielder as well.

Grant Ross (3.3.19)
