Andrew Noblitt RHP / Jasper , IN / 2024

Noblitt is an intriguing right-hander with impressive strike-throwing abilities along with an athletic and projectable frame. A multi-sport athlete hailing from Jasper HS, Noblitt pitches with little perceived effort at 83-86 T 87 mph on a fastball with life, along with possessing the ability to flip over a 69-72 mph curveball at will. Noblitt will also flash a changeup at 72-74 mph with sinking action, mainly to LHHs. The 6-foot-4, 195 pounder fills the zone with ease due to a very balanced delivery and clean arm action from a H ¾ slot and the frame, plus easy intent, makes future velocity projections a sure bet. Noblitt should be a very solid add to a mid-major recruiting class with his best baseball well-ahead. 


Patrick Mazur OF / Cathedral, IN / 2024

The top ranked position player that is still left on the board in Indiana’s 2024 class - Mazur possesses very good foot speed (6.77 60) that translates to range in the outfield. A 6-foot-2, 180 pound multi-sport standout that offers lean strength within the frame, Mazur hits from the right-side of the dish and has a short, simple swing with strength in the barrel. There is upside in the athleticism that he possesses, and his game should continue to elevate as he focuses on baseball full-time at the college level. 


Pernell Whitsett RHP / Northrop , IN / 2024

A physical, 6-foot-1, 190 pound two-way prospect that is still left on the board. Whitsett offers raw arm strength on the bump, with a fastball that reaches 88 mph, routinely sitting in the mid-80s. Whitsett compliments an above average fastball with his ability to land a 71-74 mph, 11/5 shaped curveball for strikes. At the dish, the left-handed hitter has strength in his lower-half that helps him generate bat speed on a level swing plane and he has shown gap power in a game setting. Pernell has shown very solid plate discipline during in-game looks that only adds to a strong offensive profile. He profiles best as a physical corner bat that could also double as a bullpen arm at the next level. 

Brady Minnick 1B / Homestead, IN / 2024

A "sleeper" bat in the 2024 class that I am a fan of - Minnick stands at a lean, athletic, 6-foot-5, 202 pounds and holds significant upside as a future left-handed power bat. Its a simple operation in the box, using a short, controlled stride and compact hand load before delivering a heavy barrel to the front of the hitting zone. The long-armed, left-handed hitter flashes the ability to leverage the ball to his pull-side with juice, while also showing plate coverage to go the other way. Minnick possesses borderline-plus bat speeds, only adding to his future power projections. Minnick is a primary 1B that also has the ability to play 3B, and should be athletic enough to slide out to a corner outfield spot in college. 


Caulin Brown C / Fishers, IN / 2024

Brown has plenty of physical strength within a compact, 5-foot-10, 185 pound frame. A standout for Fishers behind the dish, Caulin 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 pull-side pop that he has flashed in-game.


Masen Moravec SS / Floyd Central, IN / 2024

A well-built athlete standing at 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, Moravec offers a bat-first profile with plenty of bat speed within a simple, level, right-handed swing. The Floyd Central product has strong rotational capabilities that translates to pull-side juice, flashing in-game power and posting an exit velocity of 98 mph during his junior offseason. Moravec profiles best at 2B at the college level, with the athleticism and straight-line speed (6.85 60) to move out to the outfield if needed. 


Tyson Barker RHP / William Henry Harrison , IN / 2024

An unsigned senior coming back from injury that left him on the sidelines for his junior season - Barker is one of the more intriguing prospects on this list. The 6-foot-5, 220 pound right-hander's fastball reached 87 mph during his sophomore summer. Barker attacks from an over-the-top arm slot and flashed a big breaking ball in the low-70s as a sophomore. Barker will be a priority watch for our staff this spring with a chance to make noise as an unsigned senior arm. 


Kaleb Shelton RHP / Maconaquah , IN / 2024

A wiry, projectable athlete that stands at 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds. Shelton impressed at the USA Prime Scout Day during the fall of 2023, showcasing a live arm that produced a fastball that reached 88 mph. The fastball is complimented by his best offering, a sharp, two-plane (-16.4 IVB | -14.4 HM) breaking ball that works in the upper-60s and spins at over 2800 RPM. There is some rawness in the delivery that can be cleaned up, and the athleticism that he possesses (6.7 runner) suggests there is still development to be had. 


Stryker Swenson OF / North Central, IN / 2024

Swenson is one of the better offensive prospects on this list with serious bat speed & in-game, pull-side juice. The strong, athletic, 6-foot, 195 pounder stood out at the Top Prospect Games last June, where he posted upper-90s exit velocities and turned in a 60 time of 6.92. A bat-first, corner outfield profile - our staff saw multiple home runs from Swenson during his junior spring and summer, and he should be a nice add for schools looking to complete their 2024 class with a bat. 


Kirk Knecht CF / Greenfield-Central, IN / 2024

A next-level centerfielder with all-kinds of foot speed, Knecht blazed a 6.61 60 during the summer of 2023, where he showed that his speed translates to premium range in the OF and prowess on the base paths. A projectable, 6-foot-1, 165 pound right-handed hitter - the offensive profile is that of a contact-oriented, top-of-the-order type - but the hands are quick enough to provide some impact (94.7 peak exit velocity). There is upside within the frame to suggest his offensive skills will become better with added strength, but the glove and run tool are already next-level tools.
