One of the biggest uncommitted winners of the weekend was C Johnnie Ankenbruck (Homestead). I've always been a fan of the way that the projectable, 6-foot-2, 175 pounder can defend behind the dish, but the bat has really taken a step up after an offseason of development. The bat strength has vastly improved, as he hit multiple balls over 100 mph with his best coming off at 101.6 mph. There is a controlled pace in the box, and he stays connected to turn the barrel on an ideal path, working to extension. Ankenbruck showed as one of the best defensive catchers at the event, reaching 81 mph from the crouch, with pops ranging from 1.95 - 2.03, and he stood out with his receiving abilities during bullpens. Schools looking to add a '25 catcher to their recruiting class should prioritize looks at Ankenbruck this spring.
