There are few, if any 2014 grads who own a longer or more impressive prospect resume than Brady Aiken.

He made his first appearance on the national stage in the summer of 2011, after finishing his freshman year at Cathedral Catholic high school in northern San Diego. Aiken didn't make the varsity roster that year despite having spent the previous summer as a member of the USA Baseball's 14u National Team in 2010. Cathedral Catholic's pitching staffs have featured an embarrassment of riches in recent years. In 2011 the Dons sent lefties to the mound for 119 1/3 innings between 2010 PG All-American Daniel Camarena and eventual 2012 Perfect Game All-American selection Stephen Gonsalves. By the time Aiken made his varsity debut for nationally ranked Cathedral Catholic in 2012 he had already made a verbal commitment to UCLA, won a WWBA National Championship and threw 4 1/3 shutout innings in international competition. In fact, the first varsity sport Aiken played was football, serving as the backup quarterback for Cathedral Catholic in the fall of 2011 before giving up football to focus on baseball full-time.
