By Toby Bicknell

This past week brought a lot of content from Texas and across Prep Baseball Report. Over the past two weeks we have been in Dallas, Houston and Austin. Our staff will be working to become the #1 news source for Prep Baseball across the state of Texas. Remember to follow us on twitter and reach out to us with any news, commitments, or your upcoming workout and game schedule. Here is a look at three uncommitted position players from the 2018 class.

Hilton Brown, IF, Reagan HS
6-foot-1, 180-pound frame. Athletic build with broad shoulders, long arms, proportional strength. The right-handed hitter starts from a slightly wide stance with a simple load. Flat swing with strong hands that produces line drives in the middle of the field. Moves well defensively showing the ability to play low with solid glove actions. Ran a 7.2 60-yard dash.

Westley Schields, IF, Cypress Ranch HS
5-foot-10, 150-pound frame. Athletic, live body player with well defined lower half and strong hands. The switch hitter has a quite rhythm and a small leg kick from both sides of plate and shows a loose finish of the barrel with a solid lower-half transfer. Defensively has a short quick arm with solid arm action, quick transfer, good hands and glove action and can throw on the run. Ran a 7.2 60-yard dash.

Brad Burckel, IF, Lindale HS
5-foot-7, 150-pound frame. The left-handed hitter shows an advanced run tool posting a 3.94 home-to-first time on a drag bunt. Leadoff type hitter that can handle the bat but also has the strength in his hands to drive the ball hitting a deep-line drive to centerfield.
