As the 2015 spring regular season is getting set to wrap up, numerous high school seniors in the state of Louisiana find themselves unsigned heading into the summer. Today we take a look at five players that may not be heading to major division-1 universities at this time, but certainly would be nice additions to a college program.

+LHP, Joseph Gennero, Mandeville HS(2015)
A 5-foot-9, 170-pound left-hander with a small, athletic frame. Simple, repeatable delivery with quality arm speed out of a high-3/4 release. Fastball sits 80-82 mph and can touch 84 with occasional life. Breaking ball lacks big velocity(60-62), but shows tight spin and quality depth. Will also flash a quality changeup with arm speed and deception. Although he lacks in velocity and does not possess an ideal frame, he consistently competes in the strike zone and attacks hitters.

+C, Trent Forshag, Jesuit HS(2015)
A 5-foot-10, 180-pound catcher from Jesuit HS. Average, strong frame with a strong lower half. Experienced player that displays adequate receiving skills, with stiffness in hands on occasion, quality blocking ability and near college average arm strength. Right-handed hitter with short, simple stroke, flat bat path, keeps hands inside well and uses a gap-to-gap approach. Lacks in flashy tools, but has shown to be a solid player over a three year stretch for Jesuit HS

+C/RHP, Chris Turpin, Holy Cross HS(2015)
A 6-foot-1, 185-pound catcher with a strong, athletic frame. An overall raw catching product that shows near college average receiving skills and blocking skills with quality arm strength and outstanding carry on throws. Right-handed hitter with simple swing that lacks in bat speed, but shows occasional strength at contact. Also a right-handed pitcher with a low to mid-80s fastball that attacks the strike zone.

+RHP/INF, Jace Nini, Shaw HS(2015)
A 5-foot-11, 165-pound right-handed pitcher with a small, athletic frame. Strike-thrower that repeats delivery well out of a low-3/4 arm slot. Fastball sits 82-86 mph with sink and run. Displays a quality breaking ball with depth, spin, and late break. As an infielder he shows soft hands, instincts and adequate foot speed. Right-handed hitter with near college average bat speed and quality bat path that consistently finds the barrel.

+RHP, Myles Blount, Jesuit HS(2015)
A 6-foot-5, 215-pound right-handed pitcher with long, projectable frame. Simple, in-line delivery with adequate arm speed into a high-3/4 release. Displays a low-80s fastball that got up to 86 mph in a relief appearance earlier this spring. Shows a feel to spin a breaking ball with low-70s velocity and 10/4 shape.
