2018 IF/RHP Marcus Ernst (Dublin Coffman HS) finds his name on the top performers list for the second consecutive year at this event. The Ohio State recruit looks athletic and comfortable in the box. He made it look easy in BP, staying balanced throughout his swing while smacking rising line drives all over the field. He looks to have added strength as the ball comes off his bat better than it ever has without adding effort to his stroke. A three-sport standout at Dublin Coffman who is a name to look to follow for the Buckeyes when he becomes baseball specific.

60-yard Dash: 7.0

Infield Velocity: DNP

Exit Velocity: 93

The Dublin Coffman product has a series of well timed movements to generate energy into contact. He showed excellent feel for the barrel, getting on plane early and making hard contact to both sides of the field. Looked much improved in the infield with fluid actions and solid glove skills.
