Prep Baseball Report

Instant Analysis: Preseason All State

Here are a few of the many great performances from todays invite only event with the top players in the state. We are dissecting the data and it is showing that Arkansas continues to have depth at all classes. More to come as we cover ALL the players from the event at Fieldhouse.


+2022 Lucas Greer RHP, Catholic High School, with the most eclectic bullpen of the day. Quick arm with highest velocity of the event. 

+2023 LHP Ryan Ursery, White Hall HS, Long lean arm with command of fastball with high upside and ability to spin a secondary pitch.

+2024 Kel Busby RHP, Pulaski Academy, showed an electric fastball with a swing and miss breaking ball to go with it. 

+2023, David Sorg RHP/INF, Southside HS, Showed well both offensively with a loud and powerful BP and a much cleaner bullpen with refined secondary pitches.

+Ole Miss Commit, 2024 Slade Caldwell OF, Valley View HS with a more physical frame took a loud repeatable round of batting practice showing more control to the middle of the field. 

+Kansas State Commit, 2022 RHP Austin Gage Wood, Batesville HS, continues to blow up the trackman numbers and prove why he gets swing and miss in the game.

+2023 Matthew Guffey INF/OF, Salem HS, long levered strength during bp with a clean arm swing on defense, plenty to like about the projection of Guffey.

+2022 RHP Luke Stamps, Bentonville HS, with one of the more electric performances off the mound with a riding fastball and shape to the breaking ball. 

+2022 RHP/INF, Hunter Alexander, Bigelow HS, showed well on both accounts. Solid line drive approach with strength and a riding fastball that showed carry and feel for secondary pitch.

+2022 RHP/INF Evan Ward, Sheridan HS, threw an advanced bullpen showing command of several pitches with control in the zone. High pitchability out of ward.

+2024 C Nolan Belcher, Walnut Ridge HS, had a big day swinging it well in bp with line drives, and defensively showing improved arms strength from the summer with a more physical body. 2024 to watch. 

+2023 RHP Jacob Czanstkowski, Mountain Home HS, continues to add to his pitching arsenal with refining his already present pitchability. A new cutter that had shape along with control of fastball made for another great bullpen for Jacob.

+Connors State Commit, 2021 C Tristan Wheelus Russellville HS, showed a more physical frame and big power in BP. Catch and throw remains solid and will be a great addition to Connors next season.

+2022 Caleb Taylor C/INF, White HAll HS, aggressive swings with pull side power and repeated swings, also showed arm strength with catch and throw.
