underclass fall invite (9.3.22)

‘25 LHP Jonah Aase (Meridian)
Showcased an advanced 4 pitch arsenal on the mound with the ability to pitch to all 4 quadrants of the zone with multiple offerings. Athletic delivery with a whippy arm action. Has potential as a 2-way prospect with aggressive, uphill LH swing and quality bat speed. Arm talent also shined from the OF during defensive workout. 

‘26 OF Noah Benedict (Puyallup)
Arguably the most physical prospect at the event. Benedict comes in at 6’1, 190 with quality speed for the OF and offensive potential from the left-side. Finished in the top 2 of the event for peak bat speed and average bat speed. 

‘25 OF Gabriel Coltman (Lincoln, OR)
At 6’4, 210, Coltman has a very advanced frame for his age with present strength. Offensively, he flashed an exciting ceiling with a peak EV of 98.1 while averaging 88.1 across all of his swings. Moves well in the OF with ample arm strength and accuracy. Exciting name to know in ‘25 class. 

‘26 INF/RHP McCrea Curfman (Bainbridge)
Curfman is a wiry athlete in the middle of the diamond and really shined on the mound in this workout. The righty retired all 5 batters he faced with 3 strikeouts. Utilizing a riding FB at 77-79 that creates a ton of swings & misses above the belt. His lower release coupled with an above avg spin rate helps him get impressive vertical movement/carry. 

‘26 C/RHP Braden French (Bainbridge)
At 6’3, 145, French is still growing into his frame and figuring out his movements on both sides of the ball. One thing he has figured out is how to attack the zone with an above average split CH. Coupled with his FB & CB, the CH gives him a reliable weapon that gave hitters fits throughout his inning of work. Expect the velo and pure stuff to tick up quickly as he fills out and matures. 

‘25 RHP Cooper Markham (Enumclaw)
A quick riser in the ‘25 class who has shown considerable growth across 2 events in the last month. Markham has a quality 3 pitch mix and noticeable feel for the strike zone on the bump. The FB has peaked at 85-86 across 2 outings and he holds his velo well for late in the season. The body type and arm action all project and it won’t be a shock to see him make another significant jump once the 2023 season starts up. 

‘26 INF/RHP Jake McCall (West Seattle)
McCall had a strong day on both sides of the ball. Showcasing a compact LH swing with a sound approach in game as well as a quality 2 pitch mix on the bump. The CB especially stands out with impressive sweep and up to 2,563 rpm. It’s an above average pitch at its best and should only get better as McCall continues to get reps. The FB spins up to 2,324 rpm at 77-79 on this look and give his arm speed and strength it’s easy to see him featuring a bit more velo this spring. 

‘26 INF/RHP Christopher Moore (Kentlake)
Moore has emerged as a name-to-know in the ‘26 class with his overall athleticism and advanced skill set. Most notably, on the mound he ran his FB up to 82 and averaged 80-81 throughout his inning. He spins a sharp CB with 11/5 shape and has feel for a splitter with late downer action. The arm actions works short and quick with hand speed out front. Braces up well in his delivery and will be able to carry more velo as he gets stronger. 

‘25 OF/RHP Preston Przybylski (Mount Si)
One of the top overall athletes at the event, Przybylski is presently 6’1, 165 with a sloped upper half and lean strength throughout his frame. Solid runner both on the bases and covering ground in the OF. The arm strength is prevalent and gives him a tool that plays both defensively and on the mound. The swing path works uphill with intent and he looks to do damage when he connects. Registered one of the top exit velocities at the event at 90.5 with the max distance registered in BP at 339 feet. 

‘25 OF Carson Puryear (South Kitsap)
Puryear has put together 2 solid workouts and showcased an advanced offensive skill set and exciting projection. Currently 6’2, 170 with long levers and a high-waisted frame. He’s a good mover who can handle more weight/strength on his build. Shows natural feel for finding barrel and squaring up the ball both in BP and on our looks in game action. 

‘26 INF Beckett Turnbow (Tahoma)
High energy player who commands the field from SS with confidence. Turnbow showed off quick, active feet on defense with a solid exchange and plenty of arm strength to get the ball across the diamond. Offensively he uses a quiet, controlled load into landing and works the middle of the field throughout BP. Easy, controlled bat speed with gap power. 

‘26 INF Drew Wicklander (Sumner)
Wicklander had a strong day offensively both during BP and in his live ABs. Another tall, wiry athlete with the chance to get significantly stronger, Wicklander comes in at 6’0, 140 presently with length and long levers. Featured a mature approach at the plate with barrel control & sound swing decisions. Defensively he moves easily at SS and the actions should keep him on the dirt long-term. Strong follow in the ‘26 class.
