Baseball U has always had a strong group of catchers. You can search around the country in any of your top organizations and it will be very tough to find receivers any better than what Baseball U has to showcase this upcoming season.
Leading the receiving core as one of three Prospect catchers is Chris Harvey from Germantown Academy in Pennsylvania and already has committed to Vanderbilt and is ranked the 34th best player in the country and 5th best catcher in the country. Chris will also be very busy with Team USA, Area Code, East Coast Pro and possibly AFLAC.
Connor White made an impression last year at the showcase game attended by over 20 colleges when the Prospects played the organizations AAA team. In that game White threw out 3 runners and had two hits. Two weeks later White was placed on the Prospect team for the remainder of not only the summer but fall as well.
This year White has started off his high school season with amazing dominance at the plate as well as defensively. His arm strength and recovery on blocked balls is well above average. Though his size is a bit undersized for a catcher his consistent 1.79 – 1.89 POP times are far from undersized.
Ryan Daiss from Shelton, Connecticut is considered by college coaches to be the number one high school catcher in Connecticut. Ryan is from the Baseball U New England program and his being very highly recruited at this time.
Two more 2012 catchers that will participate on the AAA team are from Pennsylvania in Wesley Custer from Tunkhannock HS and Christopher Ender from Council Rock North. Both catchers are considered to be amongst a high watch list for colleges.
Waiting in the wings on the AA team are three 2014 catchers from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania that have already drawn attention from colleges while playing varsity baseball as freshman.
Each year the program broadens the area of selecting the players for the organization. College coaches now call us to see if we need a player. They realize that we will provide the maximum exposure as well as work with them to make them improve their skills during the year.
