Cooper Trinkle
Lead Scout

Indiana's 2025 class currently boasts 26 Division One commits to date, with lots of uncommitted talent still left on the board. Now that we have finished the fall season, we are beginning to go in-depth on the top uncommitted talent in the class, breaking them down by position. Today - we look at the top ten uncommitted shortstops in Indiana's 2025 class. 

Joe Washburn SS / 2B / Saint Joseph, IN / 2025

Washburn provides a spark atop every lineup he steps into. An undersized, gamer-type standing at 5-foot-8, 160 pounds - the left-handed hitting middle infielder has a short, simple swing with loads of barrel accuracy. Adding to the profile, Washburn provides the ability to put pressure on the defense with his feet. A 6.75 runner at the PBR Future Games - Washburn has turned in H - 1st times in the high 4.1s & is also a base-stealing threat. The quick-footed infielder can really cover ground in the middle of the diamond and offers above average arm strength (86 INF Velo) across the infield. 



Trevor Corbett SS / OF / Noblesville , IN / 2025

The hit-tool stands out for the 6-foot, 185 pounder and Corbett has built a reputation as one of the better in-game hitters in Indiana's '25 class. Corbett has produced against quality arms dating back to his freshman season at Noblesville. The right-handed hitter boasts a career .368 average in the HCC with a 2:1 BB/K ratio (48 BB | 24 K). The bat-to-ball skills come from a simple & efficient lower-half, along with an accurate barrel that turns connected with the back shoulder. Corbett possesses solid bat speed that allows for some impact, producing an exit velocity in the mid-90s. A 7.11 runner, Corbett fits the mold of an offensive-oriented 2B at the next level, with enough arm strength (91 mph across the diamond) to project him as a possible 3B or corner outfielder. 



Luke Neiswonger SS / RHP / Homestead HighSchool, IN / 2025

A durable, 6-foot-2, 200 pound two-way prospect - Neiswonger has garnered plenty of interest after a strong fall, shooting his way up the 2025 rankings list. The physical infielder offers present above average bat speed that translates to barrel strength & pull-side power within a simple, well-sequenced swing. Neiswonger shows fundamental actions in the dirt with enough arm strength to stick on the left-side. The arm strength translates to the mound, where the fastball sits in the mid-80s, touching 89 mph. Neiswonger has slightly above average command for a three-pitch mix - flashing a faded change at 75-78 mph and slurvey breaking ball in the low-70s. Neiswonger is able to get swing-and-miss on the fastball over the plate and is also able to get chase on the breaking ball late in-counts. 



Jordan Williamson SS / 2B / Pendleton heights high school , IN / 2025

A long-limbed, athletic infielder that has been trending upwards. The 6-foot-1, 170 pounder performed well in front of our staff on multiple occasions throughout the 2023 season and his projectable frame suggests his best baseball is still yet to be played. A 6.81 runner - Williamson moves around the diamond with fluid & athletic movement patterns. On the dirt, Williamson shows long-term SS traits with fluid actions and he carries the baseball across the diamond with above average arm strength. Williamson offers a contact-oriented approach from the right-side of the dish, setting up in an athletic stance & getting the front foot down early to allow for conistent timing. The barrel turns into the hitting zone to get on-plane early and works to the inside part of the baseball. Williamson will flash gap power and I expect more to come as he adds strength to his lanky frame. 



Ty Frakes SS / 2B / Pendleton Heights, IN / 2025

An undersized gamer that impacts that game on both sides of the ball. The 5-foot-10, 155 pound shortstop offers impact foot-speed (6.78 60) that translates in the dirt & on the base-paths. The quick-footed defender bounces around the infield with soft hands and plays downhill with a quick release. A table-setter profile at the dish, Frakes offers promising bat-to-ball skills with a short, quick swing. The offensive approach is geared towards contact, allowing the foot-speed to show up in-game. 



Simon Schulz SS / 2B / Evansville Memorial, IN / 2025

The Evansville Memorial product is quality left-handed hitter that offers very solid actions all over the diamond. Standing at 6-foot and 175 pounds - Schulz hits from the left-side and delivers a quick, accurate barrel from a relaxed setup. There is plenty of feel to hit in Schulz game that will only become more impactful as he adds strength. A fundamental defender, Schulz is sure-handed in the infield with feet that work downhill & on-time with the catch. 



AJ Nunley SS / 2B / Guerin Catholic, IN / 2025

Nunley plays the game with instincts & IQ to go along with fundamentally sound actions on both sides of the ball. A high-contact right-handed hitter - Nunley turns a direct barrel that allows for barrel control. Nunley shows feel for the strike-zone to go along with quick hands, and his ability to drag bunt on command adds another weapon to his offensive profile. A 7.01 runner - Nunley's in-game speed is faster than the 60 time suggests and it translates to the base-paths and infield. The undersized, quick-footed infielder is sure-handed on the dirt and plays downhill on a consistent basis. 



Seth Pitcock SS / RHP / Boone Grove, IN / 2025

A two-way prospect, Pitcock offers upside on both sides of the ball. The 6-foot, 185 pounder has a short swing that works to the top of the baseball to produce low line drives. A 6.85 runner - Pitcock moves around the infield with fluidity and carries the ball across the diamond with above average arm strength. On the mound, Pitcock is a good mover with a clean, compact arm swing that produces a fastball that works in the low-to-mid-80s (T85). A strike-thrower with solid arm speed, Pitcock compliments the fastball with a slurvey, mid 70s breaking ball. 


Josh Bingman SS / 3B / Brebeuf, IN / 2025

Bingman passes the eye test with a lanky, projectable frame at 6-foot-2, 180 pounds. The lanky infielder moves around the dirt with fluidity and his arm strength (86 INF Velo) projects him to be able to stick on the left-side. Bingman hits from the right-side of the dish with a handsy swing that should grow into more bat strength as he adds size/strength to his projectable frame. A 7.19 runner - Bingman has untapped potential with room for growth in all areas of his game. 



Zachary Wright SS / 2B / Munster, IN / 2025

Wright is a consistent performer with strong defensive abilities in the middle infield. Wright bounces around the middle infield with good range, sure hands, and an accurate infield arm. The 5-foot-10, 155 pound shortstop offers feel to hit from the right-side of the dish, delivering an accurate barrel that profiles as a top-of-the-lineup bat. A 6.94 runner - Wright shows above average bat speed that translates to budding gap power.
