Our goal at Prep Baseball Report is to promote high school players, and give them the exposure they need to be able to play at the next level. With the 2020 high school season cancelled, we want to continue to be able to promote players, even when baseball is not being played. We have sent surveys out to coaches around the state and got their input on the first weeks of the season. Over the next few weeks, we will highlight the season and standout players, team by team.


Record: 7-3

Walnut Grove was led by a couple seniors that will go on the play college baseball. They will look to build for 2021 with a solid 2021 class, and a few underclassman that earned varsity time this season.  During the 2020 season they had a a couple big wins about Grayson and Johns Creek. 

2020 Standouts: 

Brayden Brooks, SS, Walnut Grove, 2020
Piedmont College Commit
Season Statistics: .267, 2 2B, 

Austin Little, 2020, Walnut Grove, 2020
Georgia Highlands Commit
Season Statistics: 3-1, 28 IP, 1.00 ERA, .643 whip, 23Ks/3BBs

5/28/19- Checking in at 6-foot, 130 pounds, Little is a medium-framed right-hander with fast arm. He runs his fastball up into the low- to mid-80s (sat 83-85 mph) with compact arm action from an overhand slot. His breaking ball shows good depth at (67-70 mph) and he also shows feel for a fading change at (73-74 mph). At times, Little will rush and front shoulder will fly, when he stays on-line and does not rush, his velocity climbs.

2021 Standouts:

Coby Wilkerson, 3B, Walnut Grove, 2021
Uncommitted - #10 Ranked 3B in the State of Georgia for 2021's
Season Statistics: .800 OPS, 1 HR, 3 2B
Preseason All-State Attendee
Stats: EV-90, 60-yard dash- 7.20, IF VELO- 81

1/11/20 - Uncommitted 2021 3B Coby Wilkerson will be a real long ball threat this spring at Walnut Grove High School. His swing works with length through the zone as he looks to elevate the ball and drive it with force, 91 exit velocity. A projectable 6-foot-2, 183-pounds there is a ton of room for him to add additional strength and power.

Owen Morgan, RHP, Walnut Grove, 2021

Underclass Standouts: 

Tyler James, RHP/IF, Walnut Grove, 2022

Coach's Notes: James didn't get a lot of varsity time on the mound due to the crazy schedule but we are looking for him to have a solid JR year.
