Available! - A Look at a Few Uncommitted Players Heading in to the Spring


Matt Miller
State Director

Several quality prospects remain available heading into the 2022 spring. Today we spotlight a few uncommitted players that could be highly counted on by their respective programs. The season is right around the corner and we can't wait to begin our coverage!

Leading off is senior 3B Owen Abney of Jackson Prep. Abney solidifies the corner spot for the Patriots with next level fielding ability, a strong arm, and should help with offensive production this year as he regularly shows exit velocities into the low 90 mph range.

TJ Dunsford, a 2023 graduate of East Central has pop! The 2 time Future Games participant registered an impressive 102 mph exit velocity this summer in Atlanta. Power potential is not the extent of his game by any means. Dunsford also shows a solid glove and excellent arm strength (88 mph) from 3B and the ability to play multiple positions on the diamond.

Slick fielding Lawson Odom, 2023 out of West Jones is another uncommitted infielder that should get plenty of play from recruiters this year. The 2021 Future Games participant has some of the best hands in the state and a bat that is continuing to develop showing a line drive approach and the ability to spray the ball to all fields.

Junior Drake Douglas, of Saltillo, is emerging as a serious dual threat prospect. With his lean, lanky build beginning to solidify, Douglas recently touched 90 mph on the mound with quality secondary stuff. At the plate, the left handed hitting outfielder has tons of leverage and a clean, balanced approached with slight lift.

A couple of 2024’s that could make a statement this spring are left handed pitcher Calvin Robinson and catcher Robbie Hokamp. 

 

Robinson, a Northwest Rankin product, has plenty of upside and a frame that will get recruiters excited. Up to 84 mph late this summer, while showing developing spin, this spring could be a coming out party!

Hokamp, out of Biloxi, caught our eye this fall and could become one of the higher sought after young catchers in the state. With good quick footwork and a strong arm the sophomore should help control the running game from opponents for the Indians.
