Last time we were in San Antonio was in January and the event helped us identify some San Antonio area talents that we’d not yet seen or had taken significant jumps in their development, like OF William Hill (Summer Creek, 2025), who left this event as an arrow-up prospect after running a 6.62 60YD and taking a loud round of BP. Another standout from the day was INF Matthew Tellez (Lake Ridge, 2024), who showed good actions and a strong arm on the dirt as well as a mature round of BP. Possibly the biggest pop up player from the event was C/RHP John Dolan (Hargrave, 2025), who showed real two way ability as an incoming freshman at the time.

There’s a handful of players headed to Rice on Tuesday who we’ve seen before and are excited to get an up-to-date look on, like 3B/RHP Bryce Bloom-Timmons (Episcopal, 2026). We saw Cloom-Timmons at the Houston Fall ID, in the Fall where he impressed on both sides of the ball. Another familiar face is INF Conner Helms (Dripping Springs, 2025) who we have seen a few times before and each time he has improved his metrics.
