Elite Squad Fall Tryout Notebook

By Doug Freeman
Florida Scouting Director

 One of Florida's top travel teams, Elite Squad, held its tryout this weekend. Saturday consisted of three pro-style workouts for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 classes. Below is a breakdown of some of the players who stood out. 

Jordan Carrion. SS. Somerset Academy, FL (2020)
The 6-foot 145 pound shortstop showed plus defensive actions during the pro-style workout. With first step quickness, good angles to the baseball, confident under control approach to the baseball and very good hands he projects to be a plus defender. Offensively, the path through the zone works with good barrel control which will generate more consistently as he fills out. He was the most interesting prospect at the event with the defensive upside at a premium position.

Connor O’Hara. C. Archbishop McCarthy HS, FL (2019)
6-foot-1, 165 pound right handed hitting catcher has one of the stronger arms in the class and this along with a quick transfer and solid footwork produced consistent pop times in the 1.85-1.95 range. Offensively there is some length in the swing, but as he continues to fill out should become shorter and more consistent. The catch and throw tools make him very interesting as an above average defensive catcher going forward.
