LakePoint Fall Open: Quick Hits


Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

PBR Georgia hosted the LakePoint Fall Open on Monday, October 10th at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, GA.  This event featured prospects from all high school classes, 2023-2026. Prospects participated in a pro-style workout that included the 60 yard dash, BP, in and out, and pitcher bullpens.

We began the post event analysis last week with a look at the traditional stats collected in our "Stats Story". Today, we are going to reveal our staff's initial thoughts and reactions from the event, in particular, prospects that caught their eye. Yet to come is deeper dive into the advanced analytics as well. But for the time being, check out a eight standout prospects.

Backstops

C Miles Mador (Pace Academy, 2025) continues to trend in the right direction. The 6-foot, 185-pounder has a sturdy look to him with strong, broad shoulders and a physical lower half. At the plate, he has a throwback look to him. There is a smooth rhythm as he sinks into his lower half on load and then uncoils with intent. He displayed present speed and real driving power middle/pull with a heavy barrel through the zone, recording a max exit velocity of 93.7. The defensive skill set is an advanced one. Mador recorded event bests in C Velocity, 75, and Pop Time, 1.93-2.03.


C Conner Christopher (Ringgold, 2024) set the tone early with a big vertical jump on the Swift EZEJump Pad, reaching 32.3 cm. He followed that up with the second fastest 60 time of the event, a 7.00. 5-foot-7, 150-pounds, there is certain explosiveness to Chrispopher, as he demonstrated early on in the athletic testing. A right-handed hitter, he created driven contact middle/pull, recording a max exit velocity of 91.2. Defensively, he is an athlete behind the plate. Christopher recorded a personal best 72 mph out of the crouch, and recorded a 2.08 pop time.

At 5-foot-9, 165-pounds, left-handed hitting UTL Levi Crowe (Creekview, 2025) may be best suited behind the plate, despite doing a multitude of things well. His quick transfer and release immediately stood out. Crowe has soft hands and gets to a throwing position ultra fast. The arm strength clocked at 70, however he recorded a best pop time of 2.06, making up time with his release. Offensively, he keeps things simple. Hads start back with a high elbow, shifts weight coupled with a short stride, quick trigger swing that sprayed line drives middle/pull.

Outfielders

OF Yenli Nolasco (North Paulding, 2025) immediately jumps out at you, standing a long, lean 6-foot-3, 180-pounds. The physical upside is enormous as he continues to mature. Nolasco, at the plate, whips the barrel through the zone with aggression. There is present bat and hand speed along with quick rotational acceleration, as he displayed in batting practice. This led to an event best 96.1 exit velocity as he created hard contact middle/pull. A good athlete, 7.02 60, Nolasco has a chance to range around in center field, and more than enough arm, 83, to have a future there or in right.


Coming to us from Alabama, OF/LHP Hutch Sprayberry (Lee Scott Academy, 2023) athletically stood out, running a 6.94 60 and showing lean, twitchy strength in his 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame. This all translated into the outfield where he led the event with a 90 mph throw. At the plate, Sprayberry is short to the zone, creating line drive contact to pull-side. Elevated pitches low in the zone to the pull-side, 85.1 exit velocity. A two-way prospect, he is raw on the mound having just started pitching. However, with his athleticism, there is potential.


RHP

Projectable 6-foot-3, 170-pound RHP JT Cofield (Vidalia Heritage Academy, 2024) really impressed on the mound with his lively three pitch mix. Nothing he throws is straight. Coming out of a low ¾ slot, he gets heavy armside run and sink on his fastball that sat 82-84. He compliments his fastball with a sweeping slider at 72-74 (2307 rpm). The two pitches play off each other well. Cofield also showed a heavy sink changeup with a similar profile to his fastball.

In/Out

The athletically built 5-foot-8, 160-pound SS/OF Jackson Davis (The Walker School, 2024) had an all around day. Started things off running a 7.29 60 yard dash. Then took one of the better two rounds of batting practice. Showcased a short, whippy swing, staying within himself to spray line drives back up the middle. Defensively, has the actions and feel to play shortstop or center field moving forward, enough arm to stick, 82 across infield, 82 from the outfield.

Right-handed hitting 3B/OF Landon Moran (Whitewater, 2024) had one of the louder rounds of batting practice at the event, recording the second highest exit velocity at 95.8 mph. He showed a short, compact swing at the plate that produced mostly line drive contact middle/pull. At-times, Moran was able to lift pitches low in the zone and drive them pull-side. Defensively, he has plenty of arm to stay at third base or move to a corner outfield position at the next level. Standing 5-foot-9, 170-pounds, he is a solid athlete, running a 7.38 60.
