Updated Class of 2024 Player Rankings (August)

Thanks to a great spring and summer season, we had the opportunity to see numerous prospects and are updating each of our class rankings based off what we have seen.

Many names came off the board to some of the top programs around the nation, many new names came to the forefront of the recruiting scene, and many prospects improved their game.

That being said, we have had the pleasure of seeing a number of solid players this past year. Prospects are popping up left and right, making velocity jumps, improving 60-yard dash times and showing more power with the bat.

As the school year starts and with fall ball right around the corner, we will take a look at "What;s New at the Top”, "The Risers", "Showcase Standouts", and some of the top uncommitted prospects by position.

Defensively displays athletic movement and a strong arm from the SS position.

Chase Van Ameyde RHP / 3B / Brother Rice, MI / 2024

Report: Van Ameyde made some tweaks to his delivery over the past 12 months and it sure has paid off for him as we head into the offseason. A low ¾ slot, near sub peppers the strike zone at 91-93 MPH while also producing a large 6-5 frame that will see continued growth over the fall/winter months. A sharp breaking ball with 2300 rpm at 80-81 mph.

Kael Gahan LHP / Lake Orion, MI / 2024

Report: 6-5 frame with whippy action & long delivery. Gahan has shown ability to run his fastball into the low 90s sitting mainly 88-89 with natural run on the fastball. A high spin fastball (2300 rpm) & 3/7 shape to the curveball.

The Risers

Report: New Golden Grizzly commit continued to ascend this spring into the summer. Led the Freeland Falcons in IP, SO, Appearances and Saves. An athletic southpaw with ¾ arm slot sitting in the mid 80s up to 88 with the fastball.

Solid footwork from the left side. Lots of arm talent on the mound hitting 91 at TPG with much more room for development. Ball comes out easy with strong velocity at a ¾ arm slot.

Jack Sawdon RHP / 3B / Rochester, MI / 2024
