OTHERS TO WATCH:LHP Zack Morris (Cabot HS, AR) saw his velocity dip this spring, but he still possesses starter stuff. He touched 90 mph atimes, but was more 86-89. The breaking ball has swing-and-miss potential and he has shown feel for his changeup. RHP Blake Adams (Har-Ber HS, AR) has a physical frame and touched 94 this spring. His slider is average at 79-81. C Cason Tollet (Little Rock Christian HS, AR) is a strong defender with easy receiving actions and arm strength. The bat is continuing to develop and could end up producing power down the road. Morris, Adams and Tollet are all committed to Arkansas. SS Peyton Holt (Greenwood HS, AR), a Louisiana-Lafayette recruit, is a two-sport athlete who broke state records in both baseball and football. He has a high baseball IQ and is a grinder with sneaky tools. RHP Peyton Pallette (Benton HS, AR) is a late bloomer, having shown a fastball in the low 90s at times and a swing-and-miss breaking ball. He is committed to Arkansas.
