He was batting .515 (35 for 68) with 32 RBIs and 29 runs prior to Thursday's PIAA Class AA state quarterfinal vs. Bloomsburg. Boston, Miami, Minnesota, and St. Louis have also shown interest.

Zach Schellenger, Devon Prep, RHP. Despite being shelved since early April with a strained flexor muscle, the 6-6, 205-pounder, who throws a fastball that has topped out at 94 m.p.h., could still be selected.
