Super 60 Spotlight: Saborn Campbell

By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On Sunday, Feb. 7, Prep Baseball Report will host the 19th edition of its prestigious, flagship event: the Super 60 Pro Showcase. Since the event’s inception in 2003, more than 300 players have been selected in the MLB Draft, including 22 first-round picks and 25 second-rounders.

We started our our march toward the Super 60 earlier this year, by highlighting the prospects set to join us, shining a light on their impressive player profiles that they've groomed through their high school years and beyond.

Scouting Report


Campbell is one of the more intriguing prospects in this class, and whatever he may lack in polish and repetitions, he more than makes up for in athleticism. Also a star football recruit, the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder is a 6.5-runner with equally as impressive tools on the diamond. His natural progression with high school repetitions were stunted because of Covid, but the upside clearly remains. What stood out most, to me, in his early high school at-bats was the ability to track pitches and make adjustments during at-bats. However, at-bats are needed, and whether that happens in a professional setting or on campus, Campbell has a chance to make a big jump soon.


Swing: Sets up with a tall athletic stance keeping his hands back. Has a front leg trigger and shows quick hands at the plate. Makes solid contact with the ball jumping off his bat. A nice blend of contact and power at the plate. 89 mph exit velocity. Ran a 6.62.


5-foot-11, 167-pound athletic built prospect is an elite prospect with big time ability. Ran the second fastest 60 time on the day with a 6.67. A CF with ballhawk skills who covers ground. His movements are natural and flow. Registered an 83 mph velocity from the OF. At the plate drives the ball consistently while swinging a wood bat.

60 time: 6.67
Exit velo: 85 mph
OF velo: 83 mph
