By: Zac Bottoms
Arkansas Scouting Director

The Top Prospects Games are June 13th and 14th at Fayetteville High School this event will feature 80 of the top prospects from across the state of Arkansas, in the 2018, 2019 and 2020 classes. This event features players from all corners of the state, with advanced skills. Here is a look at some 2018 position players that are uncommitted but should turn into hot commodities quickly.

 

 

Jakobi Jackson OF / LHP / Watson Chapel, AR / 2018

Jackson is an outfielder, he is an advanced left-handed hitter. He runs a 7.09 in the 60, he has a strong accurate arm throwing the baseball 89 mph. Offensively he has a compact swing with an uphill bat path. He produces exit velocity up to 91 mph. In game he has shown raw power to the pull-side.

 

 

 

 

Luke Johnson 1B / LHP / Shiloh Christian, AR / 2018

Johnson is has a large frame, at 6-foot-3 225-pounds, with an average body. He has raw power as a true left/left first baseman. He has a fast bat speed with an uphill swing. Defensively he is solid with normal footwork and an accurate arm. 

 

 

 

 

Kam'Ron Mays-Hunt SS / Bentonville, AR / 2018

May-Hunt is a versatile athlete with a bevy of tools. He runs a 6.53 in the 60. He throws the baseball accurately from the infield and the outfield. His velocity from the outfield is 93. Offensively he uses a raw game with a line drive swing to produce exit velocities up to 91 mph. 

 

 

Jackson, Johnson, and May-Hunt are names that have been front and center for the past 12 months during the recruiting process, a name some people may not know, but really impressed this spring is 2018 Demias Jimmerson from Malvern High School.

Jimmerson showed athleticism and solid defensive actions with an above average arm. Offensively he is an advanced player with a line drive swing, with fast bat speed and the ability to make consistent loud contact. A player that I am looking forward to watching on Tuesday.
