On Wednesday, June 12th, the Prep Baseball Missouri team hosted the St. Louis Summer ID at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. This event was open for all high school classes (2025-28), and gave our staff an ample look at the area's top players from both Illinois and Missouri.

Shortly after the event, our staff compiled several of the day’s stat leaders inside our traditional ‘Stat Story’, which you can find HERE

We’ll continue rolling out our post-event content pieces from last week’s trip to SLU with this ‘Takeaways’ story. Continue reading below to learn more about a few name-to-know prospects from this year’s St. Louis Summer ID. 


+ RHP Brady Schuler (Timberland, 2025) came away as an uncommitted arm to follow from this event. The long, lean-limbed 6-foot-2, 155-pound right-hander pumped his fastball at 84-86 mph in his ‘pen. He spun a 69-70 mph curveball with sweep at times at 2479 RPM on average and he also turned over a low spin (724 RPM) tumbling splitter at 71-73 mph. Schuler’s arm strength showed on the infield, where he led all position players in max throwing velocity (89 mph) during his workout. 

+ 1B Garrin Stone (Highland, IL, 2025) emerged as a follow throughout the IHSA season and came away a winner from Tuesday’s trip to SLU. Stone’s physicality is hard to miss, as he stands at 6-foot-3, 209-pounds with strength stacked throughout his stature. He posted the highest force for his right (155.8) and left (162.6) hand in our grip strength test, and all of Stone’s Blast Motion metrics registered in the highest percentile; peak hand speed (25.7 mph), average hand speed (24.7 mph), peak bat speed (80.3 mph), and average bat speed (75 mph). In BP, Stone barreled the second hardest ball of the day (95.5 mph) and his furthest ball traveled 352 feet, which was near the event’s best mark. 

+ CIF Ayden Korhammer (Winfield, 2025) was another physical uncommitted right-handed bat to follow from this event. Korhammer was at or near the top in several of the event’s batted ball leaderboards, blasting the day’s deepest batted ball (355 ft.) with the third-highest max exit velocity (94.7 mph). His average batted distance of 262 feet paced all players in attendance, as did his 86.3 mph average exit velocity. Korhammer keeps a level barrel through the hitting zone with leverage through contact and backspin feel to the pull-side part of the field. 

+ C/OF Clark Davis (SLUH, 2025) is a 6-foot-2, 170-pound backstop to follow from this event. Davis fluid left-handed swing traveled through the hitting zone on an uphill path, favoring the pull-side in BP while flashing power that way. Davis’ furthest batted ball traveled 330 feet down the right field line, and his ability to backspin the baseball paired with physical projection should allow that number to continue to climb in the coming years. Davis paced all outfielders in max throwing velocity (83 mph) and he was on the bag in his workout from behind the plate, staying behind the baseball with pop times in the 2.09-to-2.19 range. 

+ CIF Sean Gross (Westminster Christian) and INF Connor Curnutte (Union) are two more uncommitted 2025 grads to know from this event. Gross is a strong-bodied 5-foot-11, 190-pound that flashed bat strength in BP, recording the hardest batted ball (95.9 mph) of the event. Curnutte repeated elevated gap-to-gap contact throughout his round, staying short and uphill through the zone to contact. 

+ C Will Fahnestock (Marquette Catholic, IL, 2025) ran a 7.04 60-yard dash and led all catchers in max throwing velocity, topping at 76 mph on his hardest throw.

+ Coming off a strong spring for the Chatham-Glenwood (IL), INF Michael Lucas (2026) continues to show polish in multiple parts of his game. The 5-foot-7, 162-pound Lucas improved his 60 time by nearly half of a second, running a 7.06 last Tuesday. At the plate, Lucas stays short, direct, and on top of the baseball with line drive feel to the middle of the field. His biggest asset is his glove, however, as Lucas is a sure-handed defender with clean actions that’ll keep him on the dirt as his career progresses. 

+ OF Robby Cox (SLUH, 2026) sprayed line drives back up the middle of the field throughout his round. Cox’s left-handed swing worked uphill through the zone with intent to elevate, back spinning his two deepest batted balls at 334 feet and 346 feet, respectively. 

+ Another soon-to-be junior to follow from this event was OF Eli Hall (Marquette, 2026). Hall stayed on the barrel to the middle of the field, repeating a short, simple, and direct right-handed stroke throughout his round. He ran one of the fastest 60 times of the day (7.00) and had the second-highest vertical jump (29.5”) as well.

+ C Camren Mahler (Fort Zumwalt North, 2026) stood out for his catch-and-throw and effort behind the plate in the defensive portion of this event. Mahler’s quick to release from the chute, gaining ground with his lower half and popping in the 2.01-to-2.08 range. His blocking is advanced as well, chesting up the baseball with a willingness and confidence to him that stood out. Offensively, Mahler worked uphill through the hitting zone and looked to elevate the baseball to the pull-side, driving his deepest ball 333 feet.

+ One of the youngest players in attendance, LHP Bo Robbins (St. Clair, 2028) showed polish past his years in his ‘pen at this event. The 6-foot, 200-pound southpaw three three pitches for strikes, spotting a 74-76 mph fastball with natural arm-side run down in the zone consistently. He spun a breaking ball with big bend and shape to it for strikes, and turned over a fading changeup as well. 

+ Another 2028 prospect to show well was INF Nathan Jackson (Vianney). A lean, upside 5-foot-11, 152-pound athlete, Jackson stayed on the barrel to the middle of the field from a polished, level right-handed stroke with balance through contact. He repeated line drives throughout and should only continue to add impact as his physical development continues. On the infield, Jackson’s quick feet and comfort on the move stand out, and he’s confident in his glove, especially to his backhand. 

+ INF Robert Grosch (Fort Zumwalt North, 2028) swings a loose, easy, and free right-handed barrel with minimal effort and balance through contact. Grosch stayed up the middle of the field in BP and showed athletic actions on the infield, working around the baseball with soft, confident hands to pair.
