6-foot-170-pound, average athletic frame, sloped shoulders, with room for added weight gains. Body works with easy effort, smooth actions and movements. A left-handed hitting middle infielder, at the plate, has a fluid level swing through the zone, more of a pull approach. The exit velocity was up to 92 mph, hard contact in batting practice. An average runner ran a 7.0 sixty-yard dash. Defensively, the glove is soft, good flow to both directions, getting off the blocks quickly. The arm has strength to it, clocked at 80 mph, plenty of flight and carry across the diamond. Can spin it from both sides of the bag, footwork is advanced. With additional added strength game will continue to climb.

Jack LaRose is a 2024 SS/RHP, 2B with a 6-0 185 lb. frame from Cumberland, RI who attends Bishop Hendricken. Recorded a 7.39 second 60 yard dash time. Medium frame and thick build. Primary shortstop with twitchy actions and a quick release. Fields out front with a funnel to the center, shorter arm action, around the bag with the throws at 78 mph. Showed the ability to drop slots, clean glove and solid round overall. Secondary right-handed pitcher with a full and clean arm action, gets under the ball at release, pushes to the plate. Switches the arm slot from high three-quarters to more of a side arm look, big change in velo between the two. Gets extended over the front side and fills up the zone. Left-handed pitcher with an even stance and high hand and back elbow set. Very whippy bat, gets the head out and stays grounded. Flat bat path, back spins balls to the pull side, going to play big in the future. Great student.

John Toppa also went to Bishop Hendricken.

Just got back home from a vacation trip to Cape Cod. Nice to see UConn landing a well regarded recruit while we were away. PerfectGame.org has Tommy Turner at No. 330 in their rankings for the high school Class of 2023. Always good to see UConn getting the occasional player from Rhode Island. PerfectGane.org has this write up on Turner:

Tommy Turner is a 2023 RHP/OF with a 6-0 180 lb. frame from Coventry, RI who attends Coventry. Medium, athletic frame with narrow shoulders and a lean build, has room to fill throughout moving forward. Ran a 6.95 60-yard dash. Right-handed pitcher, side step moving into delivery, leg lift up past belt with a slight cave in on backside in gather. Fuller arm action through the backside with quickness to it working up to a three-quarters release point, short stride coming down the mound. Works on top of the fastball well, topped out at 90 mph with short running life down in the zone, occasionally gets under the ball at release, flashes hard life arm side out of stretch at times. Developed feel for curveball and last one of day was best at 72 mph, 11-5 shape and finish through the pitch to create depth through the zone. Straight changeup up to 78 mph, tends to slow arm on release of secondary offerings. Right-handed hitter, begins with a wide base, arm bar at start of swing. Stays short to the ball, works on a linear plane and shows comfort working to the middle of the field. Incorporates lower half and remains balanced throughout, finding the barrel routinely. Very good student.

How does one get the staff to take a look at someone? My nephew is ranked #2 in New England by PBR, and would love to go to UConn or BCU (unfortunately). He's a 6'2", 180 lb freshman at Brookfield with a 91+ exit velo, 87mph inf velo (SS) and sits at about 85mph on the hill. We expect him to end up around 6'4"-6'5" in a couple years.

You could use a recruiting service like sports force.

There are some decent ones out there.

I just know the guy who founded SF so I know they’re legit.

As someone who tried to get coaches to recruit me in high school, it can be challenging at times but using Medics advice and having your nephew’s coach reach out to one of the UConn coaches would be best. Because he’s only a freshman, there’s only so much contact the coaches and athlete can have but would love to have him in Storrs
