Chandler Davis  C - 2018 - Eastman, GA
Uncommitted

Davis impressed in all facets of his game as he turned in the event's best pop time of 1.89 from behind the dish.

Eckerd College

Another uncommitted righthanded pitcher and rising junior, Shiflet ran his fastball up to 87 mph during his time on the mound, showing a quick arm and an over the top arm slot from which he's able to create natural cutting life.

Peyton Berry  RHP - 2018 - Kennesaw, GA
Mercer

Berry, who's an uncommitted righthander, showed some of the better velocity on the bump the entire weekend as he topped out at 87 mph with his fastball.

Cooper Davidson  RHP - 2018 - Alpharetta, GA
Austin Peay

Davidson was impressive all throughout the event, showing a smooth barrel when hitting with good strength throughout; throwing 86 MPH across the infield with smooth glove actions; and working his fastball up to 85 MPH on the mound with solid running life in addition to mixing in a quality breaking ball/changeup combo.

Russell Dorvee  RHP - 2018 - Roswell, GA
Uncommitted

It's easy to project upon Dorvee as he stands 6-foot-2, 155-pounds and already runs his fastball up to 84 mph from a lower three-quarters arm slot. He does a nice job of living down in the zone with his fastball while featuring short sinking life and mixed in a curveball for strikes in any count, missing bats with nice deception to his overall arsenal.

Hayes Heinecke  LHP - 2018 - Fayetteville, GA
Wofford

Heinecke showed very well both on the mound and with the bat. He worked up to 84 MPH from the left side on the mound, working downhill with arm side run on the pitch from a long, fluid arm stroke that projects. He also mixed in a sharp 1/7 curveball with good spin. At the plate, he has some big time raw power, showing HR juice during batting practice with lots of strength and bat speed.

Julian Jackson  RHP - 2018 - Powder Springs, GA
Eastern Kentucky

Jackson combines tremendous projection levels at 6-foot-6, 180 pounds, with excellent present stuff.

He also mixed in a quality curveball with 11/5 shape and good spin.

Austin Ross  RHP - 2018 - Marietta, GA
Wofford

Ross's strongly-built, physical frame helped allow him to impress scouts on the mound, as the right-hander worked 82-84 MPH with his fastball, showing some arm side life as well in addition to good strike-throwing ability. His breaking ball was his out pitch, varying shape from 12/6 to 10/4 but maintaining significant sharpness and snap, missing bats with ease.

Tyler Smith  RHP - 2018 - Oxford, MS
Itawamba CC

A primary righthanded pitcher, the 6-foot-3 Smith ran his fastball up to 85 mph and he did a nice job of incorporating his lower half into his drive towards the plate. He attacks with the fastball and shows a tight slider, as well as solid strength from the righthanded batter's box as he's able to create leverage and backspin off the barrel.


2019 Top Prospects

Myles Austin  SS - 2019 - Smyrna, GA
Alabama

Play after play Austin showed off his athleticism defensively up the middle through the weekend plus soft hands and actions highly advanced for his age. His arm strength has also taken a significant jump forward from throwing 80 mph across the diamond in December to 92 mph this weekend. The uncommitted Austin also pumped 87 mph on the mound.

Jonathan "JP" Martin  C - 2019 - Cartersville, GA
Georgia Highlands

There wasn't much that Martin didn't do on the field this weekend as the uncommitted catcher popped a 2.00 during drills with accuracy to the bag. He jumped on the mound where he bumped 88 mph with a sharp breaking ball which served as a put away pitch. His righthanded swing is short and crisp and he regularly found the barrel in game working all fields.

Ryan Suppa  RHP - 2019 - Acworth, GA
Georgia

Suppa will be an arm college coaches have on their radar as he offers both long term projectability and present stuff on the mound. Standing at a long and loose 6-foot-1, 180-pounds, Suppa ran his fastball up to 86 mph with a clean arm action while pounding the strike zone with the heater that featured steady cut action.

Luke Boynton  1B - 2019 - Marietta, GA
Nebraska

Boynton stands out with his physically impressive 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame and it's how he incorporated that strength that really impressed as he frequently found the barrel in live action and drove it to all fields. He's able to recognize spin in the box and turned in one of the top Pocket Radar exit velocities by registering 90 mph off the barrel.

Preston Welchel  OF - 2019 - Cartersville, GA
South Alabama

Welchel is a young, athletic player who needs to be monitored closely as he projects very well physically though he already shows plenty of tools. He showed arm strength all over the field, including a top throw of 85 mph from first base while his bat played well and consistently in game with hard contact off the barrel to all fields.

Chris Patterson  OF - 2019 - Hephzibah, GA
Miami-Dade College

Patterson showed intriguing tools all over the diamond, especially in the batters box. His bat speed and feel for the barrel are impressive already, and he projects to unlock more power as he continues to grow. He consistently drove the ball on a line with good carry, in addition to flashing some serious arm strength from both the outfield (83 MPH) and infield (80 MPH).

Chandler Wood  RHP - 2019 - Dallas, GA
Chattahoochee Valley CC

Wood impressed during his time on the mound as he stands at a strong 6-foot-2, 220-pounds and sat steadily in the 80-83 mph range with his fastball, creating consistent and hard running life down in the zone. Though he can challenge hitters to either side of the plate with his fastball, Wood also showed a feel for a tight breaking ball and a nice tumbling changeup at 73 mph.


2020 Top Prospects

Lukas Cook  SS - 2020 - Knoxville, TN
South Carolina

He may just be starting his freshman year of high school, but the righthanded hitting shortstop impressed with his tools throughout the weekend, including his strong right arm. His 87 mph throw from the outfield was tops in the event before jumping on the mound where he bumped 86 mph with a quick arm and solid angle to the bottom of the strike zone.

Logan Austin  RHP - 2020 - Salem, AL
Auburn

From a long, lean, highly projectable build; Austin showed big time upside on the mound and looks to be a future top prospect as he continues to mature. Working 77-80 MPH, he kept the fastball down in the zone and got to both sides of the plate with the pitch; and definitely projects for increased velocity going forward to go along with his impressive feel to spin a curveball.
