Lockport Preseason ID: Top Overall Prospects

Illinois Scouting Staff

On Monday, February 19, the Prep Baseball Illinois staff hosted the Lockport Preseason ID at Bo Jackson's Elite Sports in Lockport, Illinois. Perennially one of our largest events, this year's event was host to nearly 170 prospects from around the state, giving our staff an in-depth look at a number of talented players before the spring season took off.
