Uncommitted Spotlight - Nicholas Blakeney, 2025, LHP/OF, Liberty


Nick Rupp
Nevada State Director

As we wrap up the summer 2023, we now continue our coverage of the talented Nevada Community with Uncommitted Spotlights of the top prospects still on the board from the past events. This summer proved, yet again, that the talent in Nevada runs deep and these Uncommitted Spotlights are use to continue to bring positive attention to players that we believe will translate well to the next level, and potentially, beyond the collegiate level.

These spotlights are used to help paint a clearer picture of the prospect with the help of our TrackMan, Blast Motion, Swift Performance and Vizual Edge systems, that provides objective data that teams to identify and break down players that they believe will fit into their system.

Today, we highlight Liberty product, Nicholas Blakeney, one of the top Uncommitted prospects in Nevada, regardless of class
