Future Games Spotlight - OF Ajay Jones


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

The 2022 PBR Future Games are less than two weeks away, and will be here in no time. With that being said, we would like to introduce you to this year's Team Georgia. We will roll out individual player spotlights with comments, video, stats, and more over the next few days. 

There will be no shortage of energy on Team Georgia with OF Ajay Jones (North Hall, 2024). Jones is the definition of a spark plug. High energy at all times; plays the game like every play is life or death. The speedy right-handed hitter has 6.5 speed that he uses to his advantage any time he can. It is almost a guarantee he is going to try to swipe a bag or two when on base, and successfully do it. Presently a line drive hitter who can spray the ball, Jones has sneaky pop that will only continue to show itself more in game as he furthers develop.

Scouting Report

6/24/22 - 5-foot-8, 155-pound right-handed hitting outfielder, athletic build, lean muscle throughout, an elite athlete. High energy, plays every play like it is his last. Wreaks havoc on the basepaths, will test the boundaries of a defense as he looks to be ultra aggressive. With 6.5 speed, he has a high success rate on the bases. At the plate, Jones has a line drive approach, looking to put the ball in play, emerging power as he fills out.

3/28/22 - Uncommitted. 5 foot 8, 145 pounds of pure dynamite. One of the more memorable athletes I’ve scouted on a Georgia HS baseball field in recent years. Brings more energy than anyone on the field. Consistent barrels, drag bunts, stealing bases effortlessly, superman catches. Starting PG in basketball, starting RB in football, and the only non senior starter on North Hall’s defending champion baseball team. At the plate he has good rhythm in hands, timing+pace in hips, connected load. Gains ground lightly, creating momentum but maintaining body control. Good barrel layback, knob leads swing, compact stroke. Other than Druw Jones, there are very few on his level defensively. ++ runner.
