The summer is nearing an end, and many players have vaulted forward as prospects on the rise, though the search for rising prospect never ceases in the recruiting world. This weekend, the PBR Mississippi scouting staff was in Jackson, MS for the NABF High School World Series. Here is a quick recap of a couple players that caught the eyes of the scouting staff.

Kace Garner, C, Northwest Rankin, 2018
A Meridian Community College recruit, Garner had a productive weekend earning him the MVP award. He showcased solid defensive actions, with consistent pop times ranging 1.97-2.15 between innings, also showing a line drive approach, bat speed with consistent hard contact.

Austen Izzio, 3B, Pearl River Central, 2018
A Pearl River Community College recruit Izzio has an athletic 6-foot-1, 175-pound athletic frame with present strength in the lower half. He moved well defensively showing consistent actions with soft hands and decent arm strength. As a right-handed hitter he showed a solid gap-to-gap approach at the plate with a short, loose swing, consistently finding barrel.

Kade Dees, C, Madison-Central, 2018
A right-handed hitter, Dees was productive at the plate on championship Sunday, earning him the Batting champion award for the tournament. Dees showed a ground-ball/line drive type approach with a short, level to slight up-hill path.

Garrett Harmon, OF, Tri-County, 2018
Garrett Harmon, a 5-foot-8, 140-pound outfielder showed solid defensive actions with efficient routes, while working behind the baseball and solid arm strength with accuracy and carry on throws. As a left-handed hitter, Harmon displayed a line-drive type approach with rotational path and developing strength.

Eldeshun Miller, 1B, Raymond, 2018
Miller has strong, physical frame with present strength.  The right-handed hitting first baseman displayed bat speed with a short swing that is in and out of zone. Although Miller did not have the most productive weekend, his present strength and short swing has shown some power potential.
