+ 2020 RHP Weston Fuller (Lewisburg HS) has a sturdy frame at 6-foot-2, 210-pounds and sat 81-83 mph with his fastball. The fastball was thrown for a strike and flashed occasional arm side run. Threw a curveball with early shape at 68-71 mph, while flashing a slider with tighter spin at 68-70 mph.

+ 2020 Parker Allen (Copiah Academy) works clean and easy arm stroke from a high-¾ slot with his fastball sitting at 75-79 mph. A 6-foot-3, 185-pound left-hander flashed a short spinning breaking ball at 69-71 mph while change showed slight fade at 68-71 mph.

+ 2020 Maximus Maldonado (Fordham Prep., NY) has a physical, projectable frame at 6-foot-1, 190-pounds. Maldonado worked his fastball between 79-80 mph and showed good downward plan out of the hand. The off-speed is still developing but should continue to improve as a he solidifies an arm slot.

+ 2020 SS/RHP Mac Sims (DeSoto Central HS) has an athletic 5-foot-10, 165-pound frame with an aggressive approach at the plat. The left-handed hitter took a solid round of batting practice showcasing loose, quick hands through the zone. As a defender worked with fundamental footwork into clean midline exchange throwing from multiple arm slots that produced a positional velocity of 82 mph.

+ 2020 RHP Conner Thomson (Canton Academy) has a simple swing with rhythm in setup. The right-handed hitter consistently found barrel during his batting practice round with a short, flat stroke. Defensively moved with easy footwork working into a clean midline exchange.

+ 2022 RHP Austin Anderson (South Panola HS) has a maturing 5-foot-10, 144-pound frame with quickness in arm stroke. Sat 73-76 mph with fastball while breaking ball showed depth at 66-68 mph. Displayed ability to repeat delivery and command zone with multiple pitches. With the quickness in arm, body control and maturing frame one can project a velocity jump will come.
