June 2018 Prospect Report

Iowa Premier's Jayme Scheck (video below) has one of the more deceptive arms in the 2021 class nationally. Her ability to pitch up in the zone is more advanced than most hitters she'll face through the summer. She tops out around 60 MPH, but has enough spin to be successful up in the zone. She's nowhere near finishing out physically, so we expect a jump in velocity. She's earned a Scout Rating of 4.5 which means she's got the ability to be an impact pitcher for a top tier D1 program.

Two pitchers recently receive a Scout Rating of 5. Hailey Hudson, a 2020 Texas commit and Kasey Hamilton a 2020 who gave her verbal to Valpo. With the recent hiring of Mike White at Texas, it'll be interesting to see his interest level of Connie Clark's previous commits. Hamilton's a long and loose LHP out of Kansas who sat 64 MPH consistently. She should make an impact right away at Valpo.

14U TN Mojo probably features the deepest pitching staff in the nation and the only current 14U team with 2 pitchers rated as 4.5's by Scout Softball in McKenzie Vaughan and Emma Minghini. Both sti at 62, Vaughan as a RHP and Minghini as a LHP. Minghini is committed to Penn State and Vaughan is uncommitted.

Louisiana Lafayette's 2022 commit Hallie Pappion (LHP) was dealing for the 14U Hot Shots. Her ability to locate her off-speed is beyond her years and she sits 61-62 MPH and works with the top catching prospect in the 2022 class in Maci Bergeron.

 

Sage Hoover (pictured above) shows some very impressive skills as a 2-way player as a RHP/IF that projects higher than the 59 MPH she's currently rated at and also swings the bat very well. She's part of a very good hitting Excel Elite 14U team coached by Eddie Acuna.

2022 RHP Isabella Mitchell (pictured left) shows very good break along the horizontal plane and is expected to continue to work into the 60's. She's pitching in front of one of the premier defenses in the nation with her Texas Blaze Futures (Davis) 14U team, which features a few noteworthy D1 commits already.

The Texas Dirt Divas organizational pitching depth is something that coaches dream about as they can go 2-3 deep with D1 arms on both of their 16U squads. RHP Jessica Adams sat on 63 MPH over 3 innings and gave way to SFA commit Brooke Gainous. Adams is a plus athlete in the circle and likely reaches the mid 60's at times.

2020 RHP Tori Kniesche is a find out of Nebraska, where she plays for the Quakes Prime 16. Kniesche works around 62 MPH and doesn't run out of gas.

Coach James Talley features a pair of RHP's that compliment each other very well. Bailey Kite (2021 OK) and Cailin Massey (2021 AR) were solid in Tulsa. Kite is more of a power pitcher than Massey, but Massey's ability to work both sides of the plate allows her to be highly effective.

Finally, Kinlyn Lundin a 2020 RHP from KS was outstanding for the Top Gun Angels 16U, touching 62 MPH several times. Kasey Wood, a 2023 RHP (AR) shows a ton of potential, working at 61 MPH against a very good Texas Blaze Futures 14U team in Tulsa.
