With the likes of the highest-ranked position player and pitcher both residing in the state of Georgia and an abundance of other talented players already committed to schools across the country, many players get overlooked with just the vast number of talented baseball players in the Peach State. The No. 1 ranked player in the country, Termarr Johnson (2022, Atlanta, Ga.), is currently uncommitted but not because he is unknown to every college program in the country. Here is a look at some Georgia 2022 uncommitted gems that merit recognition as pitchers/players who could contribute to programs at the next level. 

Devon Alleyne (2022, Atlanta, Ga.), a 6-foot-1, 175-pound right-handed pitcher, is a tremendous athlete with a fastball up to 91 mph and a 6.89 second 60-yard dash time. Alleyne uses his athleticism on the bump to get down the slope with a repeatable delivery and arm action. It's a three-pitch mix from the righty with a breaking ball in the mid-70s and changeup around 82 mph. He punched out 17 batters over 9 2/3 innings including three strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings pitched at the 2021 WWBA World Championship in Jupiter. Alleyne has a quick arm and projectable frame with room to fill as a right-handed pitcher with present and future upside on the mound. 

Dawson Coe (2022, Loganville, Ga.) is a projectable left-handed pitcher with a fastball that sits in the mid-80s with a high of 89 mph and a big breaking curveball in the low-70s. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound lefty also flashed a developing changeup as a third offering. Coe has shown a solid three-pitch mix from the left side and with some minor mechanical adjustments to his cross-body delivery, the command of the zone will increase as the upside is there in the frame and arm action.  

Knox Bennett (2022, Blackshear, Ga.) is a 6-foot-3, 205-pound corner infielder with strength in his frame and barrel awareness in the box. The right-handed hitter batted .400 over the summer with 22 RBI and a 1.097 OPS over 95 plate appearances. He was selected to the All-Tournament Team for 5 Star National 17U Black at the 2021 WWBA 2022 Grads or 17U National Championship. Bennett showed the ability to handle top-tier arms in the box with a .438 average during the WWBA with a home run and seven RBI in 16 at-bats. He also displayed the arm strength to make all the throws necessary from the hot corner. Bennett showed all the tools to compete at the next level. 

Adam Brooks (2022, Woodstock, Ga.) is a 6-foot-1, 180-pound right-handed pitcher with a fastball as high as 90 mph over the summer with a curveball in the mid-70s and changeup around 78 mph. Selected to the All-Tournament Team at his last two events, which included the MV-Pitcher of the 2021 Upperclass/2022’s PG Southeast Fall Showdown with a complete game, 12-strikeout performance in the championship game. Brooks preceded that performance with another complete game victory against Hawaii Elite 2G in a 4-1 victory while punching out seven at the 2021 WWBA World Championship in Jupiter. Brooks looks to carry those outings over to the Spring at Sequoyah High School as a pitcher who his hitting his stride on the mound.  

Noah Kuhaneck (2022, Ludowici, Ga.), a 6-foot, 205-pound right-handed hitting catcher, hit .338 with five home runs and 17 doubles over the summer in 77 at-bats. Solid numbers from the catching position while also showing a quick release from the behind the plate. Add in his 24/8 strikeout-to-walk ratio on the bump over 22 innings pitched with a fastball up to 87 mph and you have a talented baseball player who could help a number of college programs at the next level.  

Jevarra Martin (2022, Covington, Ga.) is a 6-foot-5, 225-pound left-handed pitcher who recorded 25 strikeouts over 17 2/3 innings pitched over the summer circuit. His fastball was up to 90 mph with a breaking ball in the mid-70s with a frame to add more. Mix in a developing changeup and the big southpaw has the potential to be a quality three-pitch left-handed starter at the next level. The key for Martin moving forward is to cut down the free passes and his stock rises immensely as a pitcher that college programs covet.
