This one-of-a-kind event will include individual workouts and three games against various competition across the country.
Jameson Scissum RHP / 3B / Etowah, AL / 2025
Rankings StateRank: 36 / POS: 9
Uncommitted. 6-foot-4, 195-pounds. One of the more intriguing prospects in the 2025 class thanks to his frame that oozes projection and upside. Scissum, a multi-sport athlete and quarterback in football, caught the attention of recruiters that were in attendance with his dynamic skill set and projection to the frame that is hard to miss. Coming off a stellar sophomore season where he led Etowah to a Class 4A State Championship, the rising junior has seemingly had an even bigger summer and is sure to have his phone ringing once the all important August 1st date rolls around in a couple of days. During his outing for Team Alabama, the right-hander operated 85-87 mph with late arm-side run while mixing in two distinct breaking balls; slider ranged 75-78 mph (2400 rpm) and slurve worked 72-75 mph (2300 rpm) with a real feel for how to spin both. Both garnered swings-and-misses and were thrown with excellent command across the zone and to the glove-side against right-handed hitters. Much more in the tank and is just scratching the surface of his potential. Name-to-know in the 2025 class in AL.
Joshua Henson SS / RHP / Buckhorn , AL / 2025
Rankings StateRank: 54 / POS: 7
Uncommitted. 6-foot-2, 210-pounds. Thick, durable strength throughout his build. One of the top two-way abilities in the 2025 class in AL and has shown it against elite level competition over the past few days. After being featured in Friday’s article for his performance on the mound, it was the bat that stood out in a big way on the final day of the event with recruiters looking to get their final looks on players. Facing off against some elite arms in Game 3, the rising junior was a bright spot offensively, going 2-for-2 with a single, triple, and an RBI. There’s tons of strength at impact and uses a fairly low-effort swing; ball jumps off the barrel with double in the clip below going for a 96.9 mph exit. Combine the ability to hit for power/average and sit 88-89 mph on the mound, Henson is sure to be one that will be a hot commodity with August 1st approaching.
Jacob Driver RHP / 1B / Marbury, AL / 2025
Uncommitted. 6-foot-3, 215-pounds. Proportional build with lots of strength to frame, especially in lower-half. Came into this event as a relative unknown compared to others, but certainly established himself as a right-hander in the 2025 class in AL to keep close tabs on. Although the outing may not have been the best in terms of the box score, he still showed an intriguing arsenal of pitches combined with solid metrics to his offerings. Driver operated his fastball in the 82-86 mph range and played up a tick, especially at the top of the zone, thanks to above average induced vertical break numbers. The right-hander drives down the mound with his delivery and collected numerous whiffs on fastballs in the zone, and mixed in a breaking ball with 11-5 depth at 70-72 mph and a late cutter in the upper-70s. Fluid mover down the slope and is an intriguing follow.
Jackson Stallworth LHP / 1B / Stanhope Elmore, AL / 2025
Rankings StateRank: 31 / POS: 5
Uncommitted. 6-foot-1, 215-pounds. Solid athlete all-around with strength to build and more to come. Interesting two-way prospect that has upside on both sides; intriguing power potential and quality three-pitch mix on the mound. Worked the middle innings for Team Alabama and just surrendered one run and collected a pair of punch outs in the outing. There's plenty to see and dream on for the future with solid pitch-ability and feel for three pitches. Pitching on the back-end of the summer, the southpaw operated in the low-80s with his fastball and has been up into the upper-80s in past viewings. Spins bigger breaking ball with 1-7 shape in the mid-70s, with arguably his best offering was diving changeup in the upper-70s with late movement/sink. The offering plays well off the heater and turned over some good ones in the video below. Quality uncommitted southpaw that has feel on the mound and power potential from the left side of the plate. Good name to follow in the 2025 class in AL.
Steven Cavaco 1B / LHP / Huntsville, AL / 2025
Rankings StateRank: 32 / POS: 3
Uncommitted. 5-foot-11, 170-pounds. Medium build with scattered strength and some present athleticism. One of the cleanest left-handed swings from the event and capped off his strong summer with a quality week against some premium competition. Finished going 2-for-5 on the week with two singles and reached base three more times on walks. Real selective hitter that hunts his pitch early in the count; line drive oriented approach to hitting with some flashes of pull-side power. Textbook swing mechanics with fluid barrel path through the zone; can spray the ball as an all-fields hitter. Above-average athleticism as a previous 7.03 runner; remains to be seen where he ends up defensively with a solid glove at first base, but can also play a corner outfield spot. Bat is the carrying tool moving forward with one of the more polished left-handed swings in 2025 class in AL. Good one to follow in the 2025 class in AL.
