LakePoint Fall Standouts - Uncommitted 2021 Outfielders

Phil Kerber
PBR Georgia Scouting Director

This fall Prep Baseball Report ran eight tournaments out of LakePoint Sports in Emerson, GA. Thousands of prospects, of all ages, descended upon the state-of-the-art, TrackMan equipped, full streaming capable, eight turf field complex. You can look back at previous scout notes by following one of these links: Labor Day ChallengePBR Fall OpenLakePoint Fall InviteThe PBR CupAdidas Three Stripe ClassicPBR Upperclass Fall World SeriesPBR Underclass Fall World Series, and PBR Fall Classic.

Today, and in the days following, we want to shine a spotlight on the uncommitted prospects, specifically 2021s. We started with left-handed pitchers and right-handed pitchers, followed by the battery rams that manage them, catchers. Last week we took a look at the prospects who man the hot corners, corner infielders. Earlier this week we profiled quite possibly the strongest group of uncommitted prospects to roll through LakePoint this fall, middle infielders. Today, we conclude with 27 outfielders. Keep reading below for reports and video from each prospect's last appearance at LakePoint.

Caleb Spikes, OF, Mill Creek HS (GA), 2021
10/5/19 - Uncommitted high-follow prospect. 5-foot-10, 175-pound right-handed hitting outfielder with developed lower half and strength throughout. Quick-twitch athlete, makes things happen on the field. Hit leadoff and plays centerfield for Devine. Relaxed and loose plate approach, tall, narrow setup, easy rhythm in load, patient but aggressive in the zone. Generates advanced bat speed, strength at contact. Allows the ball to travel deep. Aggressive on the bases, gets good jumps, swiped multiple bags and scored multiple runs on Saturday. Seemingly always on base and scoring runs. Plays with energy.

(10/5/19 - Fall Upperclass WS)

Breon Horne, OF, Next Level Academy (AL), 2021
9/21/19 - 6-foot-2, 185-pound switch-hitting outfielder, extremely athletic (6.6 runner), strength throughout frame. Offensively, balanced setup, hands separate on load, leg kick timing trigger, rises up on stride, finishes balanced. A middle/pull hitter, quick, loose hands, whips the barrel through the zone at an uphill trajectory, generates hard contact.

(9/21/19 - PBR Cup)

Will Brown, OF/SS, Rickards (FL), 2021
9/28/19 - 5-foot-8, 170-pound right-handed hitting outfielder and shortstop is built with strength throughout his lower, apparent athleticism. Continues to impress offensively with his approach and consistent ability to drive the ball gap-to-gap. Taps into the overall strength of his frame, especially his legs, to drive the ball. Hands work athletically and quickly to get the barrel head out and gain extension through the zone. Great hand eye coordination and feel for the zone allow for him to barrel up pitch after pitch. A must watch at-bat every time he comes to the plate as he can take one deep at any moment. Launched a two-run home run 357 feet, 92 mph exit velocity, on Saturday evening against Georgia Roadrunners.

(9/28/19 - Adidas Three Stripe Classic)


Buck Olson, OF/LHP, North Springs (GA), 2021
9/28/19 - 5-foot-11 165-pounds. Athletic lefty that continues to show well from the summer. He had a great National Championship. Fun kid to watch play, he plays the game hard and fast. Great speed, always giving a hard 90 to first. Stands tall on his swing, and keeps his eyes level on his load and finish. Short, quick hands allow him to make contact consistently. He shows some power when he gets his pitch to hit. Goes the other way really well, stays down and lets his hands do the work. Most definitely a player to keep an eye on during the Georgia high school season.

Zion Taylor, OF, Hope Christian (GA), 2021
9/28/19 - 6-foot-3, 170 pounds; very athletic body and movements. Showed a smooth, strong left-handed swing. Hits from wide base with up-and-down load. Minimal hand movement that generates considerable hand speed. Long limbs give leverage to lift ball. Swing really works and moves well all over the field.
