I checked out the National Showcase over the weekend. Just wanted to throw out a couple of HS names that were impressive at Tropicana. I will have new rankings up for the HS and College classes of 2011. One year and counting and a lot will change!
Daniel Norris - definite best pitcher in the class at this point. Low 90s fastball with potential plus secondary offerings.
Travis Harrison- plus power. easy swing. One of the top hitters in the nation.
Joshua Tobias- The most exciting player to watch at this event. He can flat out fly and also comes with potential plus power. Fun player to watch play the game.
Christian Lopes- One of the top players in the country for some time. Makes it look easy. Also has power in his bat.
Wallace Gonzalez- 6-5, 235. Has some excellent raw power. Could develop into a middle of the order type hitter.
John Magliozzi- very live arm. Sat low 90's with a plus change.
Daniel Mengden- good two-way player who looked great with the stick and on the mound.
Deshorn Lake- Low 90s arm. Top ten pitcher for sure.
Henry Owens- Big, lanky lefty who touched low 90s. In the top ten for me in the nation.
