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 5 uncommitted catchers in Indiana's junior class. 

Drew McTagertt C / OF / William Henry Harrison , IN / 2025

McTagertt has the ability to impact the game in a multitude of ways, starting in the right-handed batter's box. The 6-foot-3, 180 pound athlete with wiry strength has very quick hands with an efficient lower half that allows for his hit-tool to show up in-game on a consistent basis. There is obvious twitch within the swing that allows for impact, making it easy to project for more power as he adds strength to his long-levered frame. Behind the dish, Drew is a flexible receiver with one of the best catch & throw tools in the class. McTagertt has a very quick transfer with plenty of arm strength, 80 mph from the crouch, translating to pop times in the 1.91 - 2.01 range. McTagertt offers defensive versatility as his athleticism translates to the outfield, as well.



Maxiumus Reaume C / Valparaiso, IN / 2025

A standout for Team Indiana at the 2023 PBR Future Games - Reaume offers very solid abilities on both sides of the ball. The 5-foot-11, 190 pound right-handed hitter possesses solid bat-to-ball skils with present gap power. The power should only continue to improve as Reaume packs more strength onto the frame. A sure-handed receiver, Reaume offers some of the best arm strength of any catcher on this list (81 mph from the crouch) and the arm strength translates to catch & throw prowess (1.93 - 2.04 pop range). 



Bo Cooper C / Cathedral , IN / 2025

One of the top defensive backstops in the class - Cooper offers soft hands behind the dish, catch & throw abilities, along with a motor that is second to none. The Cathedral product has produced pop times that range from 1.93 - 2.01 due to a quick release and above average arm strength. There is strength in the 6-foot, 195 pound frame that translates to fringy bat strength, but the offensive approach is geared more towards contact at this point. The right-handed hitting backstop is able to control the strike zone with very solid zone awareness. 



Rylie Hudson C / Lapel, IN / 2025

A stocky, 5-foot-11, 195 pounder - Hudson boasts an above average run-tool (6.98 60) to go along with solid arm strength (81 mph from the crouch). Hudson shows the ability to carry the baseball from the crouch, producing pop times that range from 1.94 - 2.04. The right-handed hitting catcher hits from a crouched stance with a lower handset that produces a bat path that works uphill. Hudson will show some pull-side gap strength with a peak exit velocity that reaches 93.1 mph. 



Aiden Kerr C / RHP / Perry Meridian, IN / 2025

A primary catcher with two-way abilities - Kerr stands out with arm strength & with his ability to deliver a heavy barrel. A sturdy, 6-foot-1, 220 pounder, Kerr turns an upward barrel with advanced bat speeds, producing a peak exit velocity of 96.6 mph. There is present pull-side strength in Kerr's game. Behind the dish, Kerr has been up to 77 mph from the crouch, translating to pop times ranging from 1.97 - 2.08. One the mound, the strong right-hander pitches from a 3/4 arm slot that allows for arm-side run on a mid-80s fastball that touches 87 mph. The fastball pairs with a firm, 78-79 mph slider and a changeup at 78-80 mph that averages 19" of horizontal break.
