AJ Beggs, C/OF, Center Grove HS

Beggs, a Future Gamer for Team Indiana last summer, is one of the top bats left in Indiana's 2024 class. A strong, 6-foot, 200 pounder with an athletic frame, Beggs ran a 6.72 60 yard dash time at the Preseason All-State, offering plus foot speed for a primary backstop. The swing is short and compact with an upward plane that allows for power potential. The junior had an event best 82 mph velocity from the crouch at our Preseason All-State and offers interesting defensive versatility with the ability to play both corner outfield spots. 

Caulin Brown, C, Fishers HS

A Future Gamer last July - Brown has plenty of physical strength within his 5-foot-10, 185 pound frame. The Fishers HS product offers catch-and-throw prowess from behind the dish with above-average arm strength from the crouch and a quick release. Offensively, Brown's strength translates to bat speed and his swing plane works in an upward fashion allowing for some gap-to-gap pop in-game.

Will Loftus, C, Brebeuf Jesuit HS

A physical, 5-foot-11, 203 pounder that offers big arm strength behind the dish along with bat speed and power at the plate. Loftus is an above-average receiver, but his arm is his best tool behind the dish with strength (80 mph C Velo), carry, and the ability to throw behind runners. Offensively, Loftus has simplified his forward move this spring to allow for more consistent contact. The Brebeuf backstop has the ability to hit to all fields with a powerful, level swing plane - reaching a peak exit velocity of 100.9 mph.

Logan Gibbs, C/UTL, Cascade HS

A primary catcher with major arm strength (83 mph from the crouch) and the versatility to play both corner outfield spots as well as first base. The 6-foot-3, 195 pounder offers pull-side power within a short, rotational swing - reaching a peak exit velocity of 99 mph this winter. A 7.02 runner, Gibbs' athleticism and projectable frame, along with his powerful bat speed from the right-side of the plate, creates an interesting profile with more development left within his game. 

Bryson Dorsey, C, Guerin Catholic HS

Dorsey added size and strength to his 5-foot-11, 165 pound frame over the winter which has paid dividends for his overall profile entering his junior campaign. The Guerin Catholic product has mobile hips behind the dish that pairs well with his soft hands to allow for quality receiving skills. Dorsey showed improvements this winter in his arm strength and shows good carry on his throws to 2B. At the dish, Dorsey has a loose, level swing plane with a line drive approach.
