2018 SS Brayden Morrow (St. Thomas More HS, LA) impressed several in attendance on Sunday, posting one of the top all-around performances. The lanky, projectable 6-foot-3, 175-pound middle infielder showed actions, fluid footwork, and feel during the defensive workout portion of the event, as well as arm strength with carry across the diamond, posting a positional velocity of 83 mph. Offensively, Morrow showed strength to his right-handed swing during batting practice, and posted an exit velocity of 90 mph.

2018 C Julian Leon (Breaux Bridge HS, LA) posted an event best 1.91-seconds pop time, and an 81 mph positional velocity, showing off his present arm strength. A physical 6-foot-1, 215-pound frame, the right-handed hitter also posted an exit velocity of 86 mph.

2018 LHP/OF Kade Gonsoulin (Catholic(NI) HS, LA) is one of the top remaining left-handed pitchers in Louisiana’s 2018 class.

In addition, he flashed a tight spinning breaking ball with depth, as well as feel for a quality change up.
