A Connecticut high school pitcher with a 95-mph fastball and knee-buckling slider currently tops the list of New England's top uncommitted prospects in the Class of '23.
Staples High (Conn.) '23 Hiro Wyatt decommitted from Duke this summer after a coaching change that saw former Duke associate head coach Josh Jordan move to LSU. Former Brewers area scout Ty Blankmeyer was hired as Duke's new recruiting coordinator last July.
"The coaches changed, and I felt that this was an opportunity to open my search," Wyatt said. "I went into it thinking it'd be difficult to get scholarship money this late, but a lot of schools actually still have money. I'm talking to a lot of schools."
Wyatt helped himself over the weekend by showcasing pro-quality stuff at the Perfect Game WWBA World Championship in Jupiter, Fla. His fastball sat in the low 90s and topped out at 95 mph. His slider, which was clocked around 80 mph, may have been his best pitch.
