HI NOTES: Mizzou Recruits Shine at PG Indoor Showcase

Lots of chatter about 2013 Mizzou Baseball recruits Devin Williams and Jake Brentz, plus a potential Class of 2014 recruit, Tanner Gragg.

A Jupiter repeat; Brentz shines (
About 3½ months have passed since Brentz set the scouting community on its ear with that one fastball, and a lot has changed. He walked into Perfect Game’s headquarters here for this weekend’s 13th annual PG Pitcher/Catcher Indoor Showcase as the country’s No. 52-ranked prospect and has signed with the University of Missouri from the powerful Southeastern Conference.

Brentz rolled with the flow during his pitching and hitting workouts at the PG P/C Indoor. His fastball sat tight in the 91-93 mph range and touched 94 three times; his changeup registered 83 and his curveball 71. A PG scout noted that he “showed good extension with good balance (and an) aggressive fluid stroke” during his hitting session.

“I always wanted to play in the SEC and I’ve always been a Missouri fan, so it’s a great situation and a good fit,” Brentz said.

A great fit, that is, if he ever makes it to Mizzou’s Columbia campus...
