Jacksonville, FL - The Jacksoville Warriors had a great turnout of players for their fall showcase at FSCJ today. There were some familiar faces like UF commit Keenan Bell, JU comitt Mike Cassala and several others. There were a lot of new faces as well that stood out, 2017 and 2018 grads mainly.
With FSCJ's playing field in beautiful condition, plenty of colleges on hand, it was a perfect day for a pro-style workout.
Here were some of the standouts from today's workout:
Garrett Delano - 2016 IF/P - West Nassau HS was athletic, showed good actions at SS, had average batspeed in relation to his grad class and is projectable
Eric Foggo - 2017 IF/P - Hilton Head HS (SC) has a chance to be a legitimate two-way player at the next level, as a pitcher Foggo was only up to 81mph in his pen but he has a ton of projection at probably 6'3" 175lbs and just barely 15 years old
JD Norris - 2016 IF/OF - Ponte Vedra HS had above average batspeed for his grad class and made pretty consistent hard contact in BP, we need to see him in some game action
Nathan Skinner - 2018 IF/P - Bolles has an athletic body and has some tools, needs to get better extension and use his lower half as a pitcher and his velocity will jump a bit
Andrew Rolfsen - 2016 - OF/P - Ponte Vedra HS showed a solid 40 arm with carry and accuray from RF, Andrew's actions were average as SS, during BP Rolfsen showed some batspeed but needs to develop more rhythm and timing but the tools are there for him to be a standout player
Keegan Barrs - 2018 - IF/P - Oakleaf HS was one of the more well-rounded players, Barrs had above average to plus batspeed for his grad class with a very good bat path, he showed some athleticism as well
Max Ferguson - 2018 - IF/LHP - Bolles can swing the bat and moved well at SS showing a better than average arm for his grad class, Ferguson can run as well clocking a 7.10 sec 60 yard dash
Austin Knight - 2018 - IF/C - Bolles defensively Knight showed above average actions for his grad class at SS, showed lateral quickness and probably had the quickest release with an average arm compared to other 2018's we've seen, his batspeed is average for his grad class and he projects to be a singles type hitter using all fields
Nathan Hickey - 2019 - C/IF - Providence HS may be the top prospect at the showcase just based on his grad year and his tools, a left-handed hitting catcher that projects to have power, defensively Hickey POP'd a 2.03, once he starts to grow and get stronger he'll have a chance to develop into an elite level prospect
Kyle Morton - 2015 - P - Fleming Island HS had a live quick arm in the pen, ran his fastball up to 87mph and flashed a good enough breaking ball to get hitters out at the college level, every fastball was down, there's not much projection with Morton but we can see him touching 90mph at some point this spring or next summer
There were many more players that were impressive, we can't wait to see them play tomorrow!
High Velocity - Kyle Morton 87mph
Fastest 60 - Ian Foggo 6.75 sec
Best OF Arm - Keenan Bell (50) arm with accuracy
Best POP Time - Mike Cassala 1.88 sec
