Top Prospects in Class of 2015:

  • Brett Dietrich - Senior - Catcher - R/R - Brett does a great job behind the plate along with a strong arm and a great bat will make for a solid all-around athlete.

Top Prospects in Class of 2016:

  • Kody King - RHP/1st - 6'4"/225 - R/R - Sits 84-86 with a great changeup. He has great control and is very efficient on the mound. He has power at the plate as well. Ranked 95th in 2016 class

Top Prospects in Class of 2017: 

  • Justin Smith - RHP- 6'6" - 200 - R/R - Justin has a lot of potential on the mound throwing low 80s with a great mixture of pitches. His stature makes him intimidating on the mound and his delivery makes it look as if the ball is coming harder than what it actually is.
