With the high school baseball season fully underway around the nation, let’s take a look at how some of the FSU commits fared in week two, along with the numbers for the Seminoles’ junior college commits.

2020:

Colton Vincent has gotten off to a scorching hot start in his sophomore season at College of Central Florida. The JUCO commit is hitting .343 with two HR and 23 hits through 20 games. Vincent will likely be battling for the starting catcher spot next year (Mat Nelson is sophomore draft eligible). Here’s Vincent with a single in a 2-4 game against St. Petersburg College:

Casey Asman has also got off to a hot start in the JUCO ranks with a .315 average through 21 games. The OF/1B has also posted a .923 OPS. Rook Ellington and Johnny Rodriguez are off to slower starts this year. The former D1-transfers are hitting .226 and .222 at the plate. They both have one home run.

Top 2020 commit Carson Montgomery continues to show why he’s one of the top prep arms for the 2020 MLB Draft. Montgomery has a live arm, and the athleticism to rise up draft boards:

Najer Victor is an extremely raw and talented arm. The Clermont-native is rated the No. 7 RHP in Florida. He’s also athletic enough to be a two-way player if he reaches campus. Victor was one of the first commitments for Mike Metcalf, after he backed off a UCF commitment:

2021:

Top 2021 pitching commit Brodie Chestnutt had himself quite the week. The RHP earned an invitation to the 2020 Perfect Game National showcase and posted a dominant performance on the mound. Chestnutt is the No. 1 RHP in Georgia and has been up to 92 MPH on the mound:

Canadian Mitchell Bratt was popping the glove this week in the low 90’s. The LHP has some power in his arm, but also possesses a knee-buckling curveball. If his velocity continues to rise, he’ll be special. Bratt is the top-rated Canadian in the class, and the 11th best LHP overall:

Two-way player Treyton Rank continues to dominate. The Georgia-native posted two home runs, and a win on the mound last week. His second HR of the week came off a University of Georgia commit who’s the No. 1 LHP in the state. Rank should see both sides of the ball when he reaches campus:

James Tibbs is a pure hitter. Tibbs is the No. 4 outfielder in Georgia and has produced on every level of high school ball. He’ll put a lot of balls over the RF fence in Dick Howser if he makes it to campus:

2022:

Brett Barfield received an invitation to the 2020 Perfect Game Jr. National Showcase this week. He also posted six scoreless innings on the hill with 10 strikeouts and just one walk. He’s the No. 4 LHP in Georgia:

Jordan Taylor continues to show off his powerful swing. The sophomore had another productive game last week. To make it even better, he did it against a University of Florida commit. Taylor is the No. 59 player in the class:

Gunnett Carlson picked up an RBI for Berkeley Prep in its 2-0 win over Clearwater Central Catholic. The physical catcher is the No. 5 catcher in Florida. The lefty will make a lot of noise off and over the RF fence at Howser:

2023:

Top 2023 commit Riley Jackson continues to produce. Jackson provided the walk off win for Eau Gallie with a single through the left side. He’s the 17th best player in the class, and the best catcher in Florida:

Matthew Davis is an extremely projectable freshman. The 15-year old already stands 6’2, 190 pounds and possesses prodigious power. Davis is the top OF in Florida, and you can see why from this swing:
