Today we take a look at some of the top performances from the event, and will later roll out our position-by-position scouting analysis stories.


+ INF Jonathan Osornio (Mount Carmel, 2026) put together a loud round of batting practice. A strong athlete at 6-foot-1, 190-pounds with present upper body strength; Osornio put together perhaps the best round of batting practice at the event, sending balls to both gaps with easy authority. The right-handed hitter posted a max exit velocity of 94.2 mph with a max distance of 328 feet at the event. He also had noticeably quick hands (avg. 21.8 mph) to help generate the highest max bat speed at the event at 84.1 mph (avg. 73.2 mph).

+ OF Jonathan Trotter (Marian Catholic, 2025) posted event highs in four hitting metrics during his round of batting practice. The 6-foot, 185-pound right-handed hitter was on the barrel with authority to the pull-side during his round; with event highs in max exit velocity (99.4 mph), average exit velocity (94.8 mph), hard hit percentage (88%), and average bat speed (75.9 mph). Trotter also impressed with his arm strength at the event; where he tied for the hardest bullet from the outfield clocking in at 88 mph.

+ Putting together an all-around solid showing was RHP/OF Wade Ozment (Crystal Lake Central, 2027). The No. 27 ranked player in the state started the event spraying baseballs to the middle/opposite fields throughout his batting practice round, using a line drive approach. He also tied for the event high in outfield velocity, with his hardest bullet topping out at 88 mph. Ozment then showed his upside on the mound, using his long levers at 6-foot-3, 175-pounds to his advantage. He throws from a loose and clean, low ΒΎ slot that adds deception to his arsenal. His fastball played with sink and heavy arm-side run (avg. 19.5” HM) at 80-82 mph (T83.8). He then turned to a short slider at 71-72 mph with occasional depth from a 9/3 shape, while showing a feel for the zone with the pitch. Ozment would round out his arsenal with a 73-74 mph changeup that played with heavy sink at the bottom of the zone.

+ A trio of incoming-sophomore outfielders had quality showings with the bat in OF Langston Booth (Loyola Academy, 2027), OF Isaac Stoelinga (Whitney Young, 2027), and OF Anthony Cartolano (Brother Rice, 2027).

Booth is a physical 6-foot-2, 180-pound right-handed bat that used the whole field throughout his round. He led the event in max batted ball distance at 373 feet, while notching a max exit velocity of 97.9 mph during his round. Booth also hopped on the mound and topped out at 83 mph with his fastball.

Stoelinga is a left-left outfield prospect standing at a high-waisted and long-levered 6-foot-2, 166-pounds. Throughout his batting practice round he showed an athletic swing that had the ability to make line drive contact to the middle and pull-side parts of the field with some quick hands at times (avg. 20.8 mph hand speed).

Cartolano was on the barrel throughout his round of batting practice, using the whole field with a flat, athletic bat path. Presenting a strong and athletic 5-foot-9, 175-pound frame; he was among the event leaders in max exit velocity (94 mph) and average bat speed (70.8 mph). Cartolano also showed one of the stronger arms for the event from the outfield at 84 mph with some athletic actions to pair. He also was among the event leaders during the 60, registering a time of 6.92 seconds.

+ OF Lucas Rosas (Sandburg, 2026) is a switch-hitting prospect to know from the event. Rosas impressed with his easy, flat swing, while staying balanced throughout his round. Throughout the round, he sprayed line drives to all fields, while showing a natural comfortability from both sides of the plate.

+ RHP Jonny Lee (Romeoville, 2025) was another arm that stood out from the event. Throwing from a quick, high ΒΎ slot, Lee showed to be an athletic arm to continue to monitor entering the summer. His fastball played at 81-83 mph with arm-side run to it, located at the bottom of the zone. He showed feel to spin two different breaking balls; with his curveball having the better spin of the two (avg. 2288 rpm), while his slider played with shorter action at 69-73 mph. Lee also showed a changeup at 76 mph to round out his arsenal.
