Wichita Preseason ID: Quick HIts

Andy Urban
KS/OK/MO/AR/CO/Creekside Scouting Supervisor

On Sunday, January 29th, the PBR Kansas staff will traveled to the state of the art 316 indoor facility in Wichita to host the inaugural Wichita Preseason ID. This event, like all of our showcases, serves as an opportunity for our staff to check in on players from this respective region of the state prior to the high school season commencing. All of our events serve as identifiers for future invite-only events as well, such as the Preseason All-State or PBR Future Games.

Now, at the event’s conclusion, our staff has compiled our scout notes and produced these ‘Quick Hits’ to highlight some of the day’s standouts. We’ll have several other content pieces related to this event, including a full statistical analysis and fuller data dives.

For now, read below to learn more about the players who turned heads at this year’s Wichita  Preseason ID. Players are listed in alphabetical order. Full profiels, stats, and videos can be seen by clicking on a players name. 


Taccarri Brown OF / OF / Wichita Northwest , KS / 2024

The 6-foot-2, 150-pound outfielder might have the most improved swing in the state over the last year an a half. Always a good athlete that was able to find barrels, Brown has polished his swing and taken his game to a new level. There is still plenty of projection left in his frame making Brown a must see prospect this spring. 

Fernando Delgado OF / Life Prep, KS / 2024

Delgado was impressive in his round of BP with a max exit velo of 95 an average of 83 and max distance of 339. Most impressive though was the bat speed he consistently created on every swing with an average of 78.8, a number rarely seen in a high school prospect. 


Rowan Foster SS / 2B / Derby, KS / 2026

One of the top young infield prospect in the state, Foster had a strong all around showing at the event. Already a 7.0 runner, 87 exit velo from the right side and not far behind from the left, and 82 across the infield with clean hands and feet, Foster's arrow is pointing starlight up. 


Enyel Garcia SS / Life Prep, KS / 2024

Statistically, Garcia posted one of the top tow-three days at the event. He started his day by ripping off a 6.78 60, went 92.5 in BP, and then chucked it 86 with carry across the infield. 

Landon Haines 1B / RHP / Circle , KS / 2024

One of the top two-way prospects at the event, Haines had one of the loudest rounds of BP at the event posting a top exit velo of 96 mph and an average of 89, and it was more impressive in person than those numbers suggest. On the mound, the 6-foot-2, 205-pound right-hander pounded the zone with some sink up to 86. 

Tyner Horn RHP / 2B / Eisenhower, KS / 2023

Horn is going to be a must see pro prospect this spring. Up to 92 with three pitches for strikes, including a elite high school slider, Horn has made huge strides in the last six months. The Wichita State commit will likely have a decision to make come draft day if he continues on this trajectory. 


Juan Isidro OF / Life Prep, KS / 2024

The right-handed hitter started his day with a sub 7.0 60 and showed off one of the most balanced rounds of BP of the day. Isidro stayed flat and on the barrel as he sprayed line drives to every part of the cage, hitting balls where he was pitched with an exit velo up to 92.  


Quincy Koehn RHP / 1B / Maize, KS / 2027

We haven't ranked the KS 2027 class yet, but when we do Koehn will be at or near the top. A still a two-way prospect as most young athletes are, Koehn shines especially bright on the mound. The 6-foot-4 right-hander absolutely dominated the zone with a 82 mph fastball that showed huge tilt, a big 12/6 breaking ball with consistent depth, and a splitter that fell off of the table. 

Cole Pladson OF / RHP / Clay Center , KS / 2025

We saw Cole this summer show off a strong swing from the left-side, but the work he put in during the offseason is apparent. The left-handed hitter showed off a more connected swing with balance during his round of BP and could emerge this spring as one of the top hitters in the KS 2025 class. 


Colton Roberts RHP / 1B / Rose Hill, KS / 2025

Like every other KS arm the 6-foot-3, 180-pound sophomore is just getting his arm up to speed this preseason. The righty was up to 86 in his pen, but it is obvious that there is much more in the tank and coming soon. Roberts showed feel for four pitches and repeated his delivery well. 


Austin Selenke OF / LHP / Bishop Carroll, KS / 2024

One of the most quick twitch athletes in the state, Selenke had the second fastest 10 yard split at the event at 1.63 and the third highest vertical jump at 31 in. Selenke also showed an upper 80s arm from the OF and a 93 exit velo with elite hand speed of 27 mph. 


Kael Shelite RHP / Hesston, KS / 2023

One of the top uncommitted 2023 arms in the state, the 6-foot-1, 197-pound right-hander delivered one of the most polished pens of the day throwing three pitches for strikes featuring a fastball up to 86 and a tight curveball with late depth. Shelite used a short arm action the hides behind his body and head adding deception. 

Keagan Shelite RHP / Hesston, KS / 2025

The 5-foot-9, 170-pound right-hander pounded the zone with a FB up to 86, but what was even more impressive was his braeking ball that averaged 2676 spin and had consistent late depth. Easily one of the better breaking balls in the class. 


Gatlin Tilson OF / SS / Andover, KS / 2026

Tilson is a young athlete to watch who put up advanced measurements in everything he did at the event. Not only is that athleticism on the high end, Tilson skill set has cleaned up especially with his swing making him a high follow prospect. 


Carson Umphres OF / RHP / Great Bend, KS / 2025

At 6-foot-4, 180-pounds and tons of room to add more size and strength, Umphres is an easy prospect to dream on. The right-handed hitter lead the event with a 97 mph exit velo. It is also worth noting the he commanded the zone on the mound showing an advanced CB and one of the best knuckleballs we have seen at an event. 

Brady Unrein SS / RHP / Northwest, KS / 2024

Unrein was arguably the biggest winner of the day. He ripped off the fastest 60 at 6.63, the highest vertical jump at 31.1 inches,  92 mph top exit velo and second highest average exit velo of 88.5. On the infield, Unrein showed quick lateral movement and soft and quick hands. 

Kaleb Wise 3B / RHP / Life Prep, KS / 2023

A strong arm and power bat, Wise posted a 95.2 top exit velo and average of 86 while going 84 across the diamond and from the mound. 




Landon Preston C / Andover Central, KS / 2025

Preston had a strong showing on both sides of the ball. The top pop time at the event with a 1.90-2.10 and top catcher velo of 77 mph to go with an impressive round of BP where he lined balls to the back of the cage with a top exit velo of 90.
