Georgia 2024 Rankings Release

Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

It is still extremely early to be forecasting Class of 2024 prospects. However, with the way recruiting has been trending, high level 2024 prospects are already making verbal commitments. In fact, we know of five committed prospects in the state’s freshman class, four of whom are ranked inside the top-10.

We took our time this year to release our first iteration of the freshman class rankings. These prospects lost out on a spring season, so it only left the summer and fall to catch them in action and build an opinion. After a thorough review, we have compiled a list of the top-45 prospects in Georgia’s 2024 Class that stood out among their peers. Certainly this list will change and evolve over time, as we know many players will grow, develop and mature. We also know that we likely have not seen every 2024 prospect that may be deserving of this list.

The highest ranked prospect from Georgia in the 2024 overall rankings and thus the No. 1-ranked player in our state rankings debut: Michael Mullinax (North Cobb Christian). Mullinax brings exciting athleticism to the diamond with game-changing speed and top-of-the-order potential. The 6-foot, 174-pound switch-hitting outfielder has ultra quick hands with whippy barrel speed. He has shown a consistent ability to barrel pitches up with force and then take off around the bases in a hurry. His force on the ball and acceleration out of the box make Mulllinax a must-watch player over the next four years.

Coming in at No. 2 in the state is OF Kameron Davis (Doughtery). Davis is an elite athlete with the build of a running back, strong and muscular. The right-handed hitter has lightning quick hands and swings the bat with authority. Couple this with the strength throughout his frame and the ball jumps off the bat when he connects. Defensively, Davis profiles as a center fielder with a instinctive first step and the ability to quickly cover ground in the outfield.

The top ranked shortstop and No. 3 overall prospect in the state is SS Erik Parker (Parkview). Parker is the first committed player to grace our list as he committed to South Carolina back in mid-August. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound middle infielder possesses an athletic, projectable frame, having barely scratched the surface of the physicality that is to come. A gap-to-gap type hitter. He has advanced hands and bat speed allowing for him to drive the ball with an easy effort swing.

We continue our run of middle infielders with the earliest commit in Georgia’s 2024 class, No. 4-ranked Oklahoma commit SS Bryce Clavon (Dutchtown). Clavon has been on the radar of our staff for almost a year now, ever since he made a big impression at the 2020 Underclass Invitational. He is one of the twitchiest athletes in the class at 5-foot-11, 170-pounds. A top of the order, leadoff style hitter, Clavon can drive the ball to all fields and then use his elite speed to fly around the bags. He has a strong ability to square the ball up on a consistent basis.

Rounding out the top-5 is the first pitcher in our debut rankings: LHP Drew Sofield (Towns County). Sofield is a projectable 6-foot-1, 180-pounds with a strong, physical lower half. The big southpaw had a number of standout performances at LakePoint this summer with the East Cobb Astros. Sofield has a quick, clean arm action, working out of a ¾ slot. He works his fastball into the mid-80s, and is able to get swing and miss with the pitch alone. With that in mind, what makes him the top arm in the state is his offspeed. He possesses a heavy, sinking changeup and an out pitch in his 1/7 curveball that has sharp bite to it.

We move on to one of the most projectable frames in the entire class and a power threat at the plate and on the mound, No. 6-ranked Georgia commit 3B/RHP Jax Phillips (East Cobb Baseball Academy). Our first look of Phillips came at the Underclass Games in June where he excelled, both in the workout and in-game against players two years older than him. A right-handed hitter, he has barely begun to fill out his 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame. As he adds strength, the power potential in his swing and arm might be at the tops of his class. Phillips has an easy gap-to-gap swing with quick hand speed. On the mound, he already can work up to 85 and projects to add much more as he matures.

Another prospect who was a standout at the Underclass Games is our No. 7-ranked prospect, Georgia commit C Ariston Veasey (Starr’s Mill). Veasey is an elite defender behind the plate. He has a quick, whippy arm that works short to an over-the-top slot, His throws are accurate, placing them low and around the bag consistently, clocked at 77 out of the crouch. He posted the top pop time range at the Underclass Games with a 1.94-1.97. Despite being a wiry 5-foot-11, 160-pounds, he can still produce advanced bat speed, registering 79.80 mph via Blast.

The No. 8-ranked prospect in Georgia's 2024 class is arguably the most projectable. RHP/C Montrell Christian Jr. (Forest Park) weighs in at an intimidating 6-foot-4, 200-pounds. It remains to be seen whether Christian Jr will end up being an arm or a bat, but at this point he is able to do both at a high level. On the mound he can work his fastball up into the mid-80s and compliments it with a nice slider. At the plate, he has a powerful swing that plays well to the pull-side. With the natural strength throughout his frame, he is able to generate hard contact to all fields.

Our staff had one look at 3B/RHP Parker McCoy (Benedictine) this fall, and it was immediate that he is a game changing presence. McCoy is a strong 6-foot, 170-pound right-handed hitter, with plenty of room to add even more strength as he matures. He has good feel for the barrel and athletic hands, allowing for him to routinely get the barrel on pitches. McCoy uses his strong frame to create a powerful swing. He is also another arm in our top-10 that is capable of working in the mid-80s.

Rounding out the top-10 is 2020 PBR Future Games and Junior Future Games participant, C/RHP Luca Perriello. Perriello is a swiss army knife defensively, capable of playing anywhere, but where he truly excels is behind the plate. He has a quick, clean arm. He couples this with a quick footwork and smooth exchanges, making it a tall order to try to run on him in game. He is one of the best receivers in his class, creating a low, wide target with a very flexible lower half. At the plate, he is a true switch-hitter, capable of spraying line drives from both sides. He does show more pop from the right side. On the mound, he topped out at 86 during the Future Games with a 12/6 breaking ball. The versatility of Perriello makes him an attractive prospect moving forward.
