2020 FL Preseason All-State Spotlight: Jack Speights


Rocco Iervasi
Florida Director of Operations/Area Scout

Preseason All-State has quickly become the top Preseason event in the state of Florida. Last year’s event consisted of over 50 committed players and 2 players who were selected in the 2019 MLB Draft. This event is held for the top 2020s-2023s throughout the state to kick off the Prep Baseball Report's spring high school baseball coverage.

We will continue to spotlight many of the top players who will be in attendance at this year’s Preseason All-State Showcase. Today, we look at 2020 2B/OF Jack Speights (Calvary Christian). Speights was a standout at many PBR events this past year including the All-State Games and Fall Championships. He recently committed to Seminole State College this fall.
