Illinois commit, currently ranked No. 12 in Illinois. Highly athletic, muscular 5-foot-9 160-pound frame. Superior lower-body strength as well as in his forearms and hands. Offensively, the right-handed hitter starts in an athletic stance. Leg-kick timing trigger, repeatable swing, short, quick hands that work directly to the ball. Stays within himself with a mature approach at the plate. Patient hitter, understands the strike zone and rarely chases out of the zone. Finished the day 0-for-2 with 3 walks. Aggressive approach on the basepaths, always looking to take the extra base. Scored every time he reached base. Defensively, shortstop showed good range to both sides. Fluid defender with athletic footwork. Advanced glove-to-hand transfer with an above average arm across the infield. Profiles on the infield at the next level. High-level 2021 prospect.

Illinois commit, has added a bunch of strength throughout his compact 5-foot-9, 160-pound frame and has turned himself into one of the better right-handed bats in the Illinois' 2021 class. Confident look in the box, tracks pitches well, consistently on time and hunts the fastball. Short and direct to the baseball, advanced bat-to-ball skills and made a bunch of hard contact back up the middle of the field throughout the weekend. Finished 4-for-11 with a double, three walks and four runs scored.
Stats: 4-for-11, 2B, 3 BB, 3 RBI, 4 R

Showed his toughness by taking a pitch to the helmet during his second at-bat of the ProCase and wanted to stay in the game. The 5-foot-9, 160-pounder isn’t flashy, but is very competitive and has a polished game, both on the dirt and in the batter’s box. After running a 6.77 sixty with moderate effort, the sure-handed defender showed an average arm (80 mph across the infield) with athletic actions and strong body control. He plays through ball well. In the batter’s box, Moerman has simple, compact swing and uses all fields. With modest power (95.3 mph max EV during BP) his bat control, loose barrel and easy to repeat swing should set him apart from most others at the collegiate level. Blast metrics liked his rotational acceleration (20.2 g) and peak hand speed of 22.1 mph.

Illinois commit. 5-foot-9, 160-pound, right-handed-hitting shortstop with athletic frame with lean strength throughout. Hit lead-off in Lockport’s second game at the Kickoff Classic. Hard-nosed, competitive player who’s always looking to take the extra base. Led the game off with a sharp single to center, promptly stole second, and scored on a wild pitch an at-bat later. Defensively, natural actions to both forehand and backhand. Hands are soft and clean, especially for age. Above-average body control with an arm that showed carry. From the batter’s box, is looking to get on base any way possible, middle-of-the-field approach, selective, advanced knowledge of the zone.

Those schools looking for a shortstop to follow over the next few years might want to take a look at Moerman. The 5-foot-9, 160-pounder has natural actions in the field, and plays with a great deal of confidence. He will definitely be a player that I will be locked in on the rest of the weekend.
