PerfectGame.com has Ryan Daniels ranked at 279 for the high school class of 2022. Levi McAllister is ranked at 426. Niko Brini comes in at 500, which for Perfect Game seems to fall in the 500 to 1000 range. That is a nice start for UConn baseball recruiting efforts for the high school class of 2022.

From PrepBaseballReport.com and their profile page on Drew Kron. Usually the reports on a player are several month's or a couple year's old. For Drew Kron, we got reports that are rather fresh:

>8/02/20
Future Games
6-foot-1, 175-pound right-handed hitting outfielder. He had a monster 3 days at the event. He is a very skilled player, as there is not much he cant do on the field. He ran a 6.76 sixty on the laser at the event. The approach in the outfield is aggressive, athletic and online. He can play all 3 spots and play them all very well. He threw 78 mph during the outfield portion of the workout. The bat has an exit velocity of 97 mph. The setup is wide in base and he steps into the swing as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The hands are very clean and quick. The path is flat to slightly uphill at contact. He homered twice in the last game of the weekend and made a couple legit rundowns in centerfield. He is a high level prospect for me.
Exit Velocity- 97 mph
OF Velocity- 78 mph


7/01/20
6-foot-1, 175-pound, longer, wiry strong athletic frame. A plus athlete, showing good strength throughout. A right-handed hitting outfielder, at the plate, the feet are even at shoulder width. The hands are held higher, path is level to up, finishing higher. With approach middle to pull side. Creates backspin to the baseball, stays behind the ball at contact. Shows gap power, exit velocity was clocked at 88 mph. Put together good at bats during game play. Runs well, clocked at 6.86 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, shows an above average arm, clocked at 81 mph can track the baseball very well, projects out as a corner outfielder at the higher level. Big athlete, real good follow.

2/09/20
New England Procase
6-foot-1, 170-pound, longer, lean athletic frame, rounded shoulders, showing good strength. A right-handed hitting outfielder, at the plate, quiet stance, even feet, higher hand set. The lower half is under control, small pick up and put down. The swing works with minimal effort through the zone, a level path, middle to a pull approach. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph, ran a 7.18 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, the approach is under control, quick shuffle for the transfer, getting rid of the baseball. Threw 78 mph from a 3/4 slot. An athlete, look for the game to takeoff.
Tee Exit Velocity: 85 mph
Arm Velocity: 78 mph
Sixty-Yard Dash: 7.18<

Amity CF, Julian Stevens, just verballed to Missouri.
Damn, can’t have the entire state apparently. Stevens isn’t top 500 on PG but like Daniels and Kron is considered a top player.

I wonder why Missouri? They’re seen as one of the weaker SEC programs (although it is a monster conference).

From PerfectGame.com on Sam Clark's profile page.

>2018 NORTHEAST PROSPECT SHOWCASE

Sam Clark is a 2022 RHP/OF with a 6-0 150 lb. frame from Scarborough, ME who attends Scarborough. Medium frame with slender, projectable build; ran 60 yard dash in 7.73 seconds. Primary righthanded pitcher, methodical pace to delivery, offline arm stroke through back with some stab, pretty easy delivery, somewhat crossfire with good angle, fastball worked 76-80 mph with good arm side life, also showed slider and changeup with varying degrees of feel. Hits from slightly open stance with leg lift trigger, good looseness to stroke with hands, gets barrel moving, drives off backside well, hands work inside the ball, good contact skills. Worked out in the outfield, reads hops well, fields out front with two hands, tends to halt momentum, lower slot release, arm strength clocked up to 81 mph. Very good student.<

Would guess he's Todd's younger brother
Jack sure isn't Todd's older brother, but yes, you are right.

From Jack Petersen's profile on PrepBaseballReport.com:

>6/19/19
6-foot-3, 170-pound right-handed hitting infielder and pitcher. Positionally, ran a 7.24 sixty on the laser at the event. The approach in the infield needs to be smoothed out with the feet, the hands are soft and clean. Threw 75 mph across the diamond from shortstop to first base. The bat has a tee exit velocity of 84 mph. The setup is wide, small pick up and put down of the front foot as the ball approaches the hitting zone. The hands work clean to the ball, long and strong to contact. On the mound, the fastball sat 81- 82 mph, minimal arm side run. The spin pitch is big in shape, sitting 66-67 mph. The changeup is 75 mph and a work in progress. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is high in nature. The tracking of the front shoulder comes offline and he has a minor pull to the first base side, taking away from his extension. The arm works well.
Tee Exit Velocity- 84 mph
INF Velocity - 75 mph

7/24/18
6-foot-3, 170-pound, large, long, lean athletic frame. The shoulders are rounded, has room for growth, going to be extremely physical at some point. One of the better players at this event. A two-way player, showed above average ability from both sides of the field for his age. At the plate, has potential to be a serious power guy down the road. At the plate, the hands are set lower are super loose with the bat having tilt to it. The lower half is under control, uses a smooth controlled leg kick, could gain ground with stride. The swing is level to up, finishes with two hands above the shoulder. The barrel stays in the zone, looks to drive the baseball from the middle to pull side. The tee exit velocity was clocked at 85 mph and runs well for a big kid at 4.45 down the line. Defensively, hands are soft and relaxed on the catch, clean feet, shuffle for the transfer. The arm works out of a natural ¾ slot, more of a flip to the throw, good touch across the diamond, clocked at 68 mph, with much more in there. Double play feeds were clean and on time. Off the mound, the fastball reached 78 mph with action to the arm side. The breaking ball was clocked at 59-62 mph, break was 11/5. Showed a change at times, clocked at 65-71 mph. Times to the plate, were at 1.32, worked quick and attacked the hitter. The backside lower half drops, could stay taller throughout, front glove tucks early, gets off line. Couple simple adjustments, look for velocity to jump. Big time prospect, has more in the arm.
Home-First: 4.45
Exit Velocity: 85 MPH
Arm Velocity: 68 MPH<

Doing some mid morning research on PG, Owen (the Vermont kid) was also being recruited by Stetson, Washington, BC, and Northeastern.

Who knew Stetson recruited New England so hard?

I would think there is still a chance Calvin Ziegler might arrive in Storrs, as you never know how the MLB draft will shake out. As for Adrian Siravo, with him going the JUCO route, I can't see that happening at this point.
Ziegler is retweeting posts listing him as a UConn commitment. I think we have a good chance unless he is a top 10 pick in the draft (very possible).

Ryan Juliano is a class of 2022 middle infielder from Bedford, New Hampshire. UConn seems to be pulling in a number of recruits from northern New England of late.

New England has good baseball talent, in spite of the weather. With increasing success on the field and going from a high school field stuck on the edge of college campus to arguably the best collegiate baseball complex in all of New England (maybe the Northeast?), expect an uptick in talent. The Huskies won't get kids who are good enough to get offers from the best ACC and SEC programs; but, they should able anybody else in the area, including the B1G.

Even then, we do sometimes beat out big time ACC programs (Daniels, Crawford, Winkel, etc)

The newly constructed baseball complex is on the edge of campus.
