Hmmm... Could be Mike Concato or Sam Neplarsky (both are under 6-2). Hadn't heard (or remember reading) that either committed to a college yet but I could clearly be wrong. Concato just had a solid Legion season for Orange.there was a junior pitcher who's about 6'5" who throws smoke.
I'm assuming he's a D-1 prospect.
We're both right and my memory is not what it used to be. It's Nepiarsky that has already committed to Uconn,I saw a kid come in and pitch the last inning of the SCC Championship and was lights out. He was definitely 6'4"ish
if Sam is 6'1", Sienna is 5'6"!!! ... but I'm very happy both will be Huskies!We're both right and my memory is not what it used to be. It's Nepiarsky that has already committed to Uconn,
But both are 6-1.

PG Crosschecker mentions UConn landed 4 big time players. One can look up players if you know the names. Ruotolo, Garabedian, and Sweeney are listed with UConn. Nepiarsky & Malone aren't yet. This means Penders has signed another player listed with PG. Anyone know who this player is?if Sam is 6'1", Sienna is 5'6"!!! ... but I'm very happy both will be Huskies!
What site did you see him ranked that high?After doing a little digging, it looks like one of the players is Ryan Sullivan plays for the Evoshield Canes AAU team, is from MA and plays 3B. He is listed currently as the #216 player in the country, #1 in MA and #15 at his position.
A full scholarship is serious business but if Penders thinks he can be the next Matt Barnes he had to do what he could to get him to commit and give him extra incentive to pass on the draft should he be taken.Penders could sell ice to an eskimo, but this kid better be really good. A full scholarship is alot.
Good point on the half and half. Hopefully he really does value his EKIN education and the ability for his parents to watch him pitch because those are two things he won't get if he goes pro out of high school.He was also recruited by Stanford...and he wants to major in Kinesiology...Article says he was offered a full scholarship..it does not say he was offered a full Baseball scholarship. Besides being a good player he is obviously very bright...I bet he received 1/2 baseball and 1/2 academic
Thanks, we do have to keep our fingers crossed on Zapata & Sullivan. Although a different article in the NY Post seems to indicate Zapata wants to be close to home over the next few years.Good stuff Yonick. And when you consider that a bunch of the 1st and 2nd team AAs will likely get drafted and never play in college, we will have some very highly ranked Freshmen next year.
