09/03/2021 - Baseball Factory's All-Region Tournament (HS) Jacob continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now an above average runner at 7.29. In the OF, he displays fluid/athletic actions. Feet are aggressive as he takes proper routes/angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate. At the plate, he continues to shine through a squared setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields though a line drive approach.

08/01/2021 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (HS) Jacob is a coachable OF prospect out of Belle Vernon, PA who worked hard on his skills during the National World Series at Pirate City. In the field, Jacob shows smooth footwork with a quick first step. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front with a firm glove. His exchange is clean and he gains ground well on his throws, working to keep them accurate to his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a controlled stride. He gets into a small load and drives through well with his lower half. He works through a level swing and produces strong line drives. Overall, Jacob is a solid prospect who has the potential to further build upon his skills on the field. We look forward to seeing what the future holds for this 2023 grad.

02/12/2021 - Baseball Factory Opening Day Classic (HS - East) Jacob Wessel is a 2023 OF. He has some physicality to the build but remaining room to fill out. He's a primay OF and fields the ball out front and comes through it well, carrying momentum into a transfer with a high 3/4 release. Strong and accurate arm. RHH, sets up balanced and even, works short to the ball on a level swing path. Has the ability to turn the barrel that generated most of his line drive contact to the middle of the field. He has 2 1/2 years of continued growth and development and will bode well for his career at the next level.

12/27/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Pittsburgh, PA Jacob is an athletic OF who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, he displays smooth/fluid actions. He takes proper routes/angles in tracking down balls. Feet are active as he works to get behind balls but needs to play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he continues to shine through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. With 3 years to further develop, Jacob has a lot of potential with time and room to improve his game.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
