COLLEGE STATION, TX - Some of the top underclass talent from around the state converged on Texas A&M on Tuesday for the South Texas Underclass Games. The event was loaded with underclass talent, here are the top prospect from that event.



RHP / 1B / LAKE TRAVIS, TX / 2019

Lewis has tremendous upside with his 6-foot-6, 190-pound, long, projectable, athletic frame. He works from a high-¾ slot with a loose, quick, athletic arm stroke. He threw his fastball for strikes and sat mostly 87-89 mph with late, arm-side run and action, bumping 90 mph twice, and dropping only once to 86 mph. His fastball jumps out of his hand with ease. His curveball has 10-4 shape and depth, coming in at 72-74 mph. Has good feel for a changeup that he throws with fastball arm speed at 75-76 mph. With Lewis' projectable frame, quick arm, pedigree, and present arm strength, it is easy to dream that his velocity will continue to climb and his future is most likely on the mound at a Division I program.

OF / RHP / SWEENY, TX / 2019

Martin showcased explosive tools at the South Texas Underclass Game, and committed to Rice recently. He has a strong frame at 5-foot-11, 190-pounds with a strong lower half. On the mound, the right-hander has an aggressive delivery with a quick arm stroke from a high-¾ slot. His fastball was around the zone, ranging from 86-90 mph with some effort, sitting mostly 88 mph. He throws a power curveball with late action, and excellent depth at 71-74 mph. Good feel for a changeup that he throws with fastball arm speed at 76-78 mph. Showed plus arm strength in the outfield at 93 mph and registered an exit velocity of 95 mph off the tee. During batting practice he showed bat speed and big power potential as he squared up balls consistently, including hitting two home runs, one to left-centerfield and another to left field (at Texas A&M). Carried that over into the game by hitting a missile to centerfield that was caught.

Gresham is a legit two-way prospect that stands 5-foot-10, 170-pounds with a strong frame. The rising junior put together one of the better overall performances at The South Texas Underclass Games. Confident shortstop with fluid actions, quick footwork, soft hands and plus arm strength (91 mph across the diamond). Makes the play on the run with athleticism and accurate throws, attacks ground balls with a good sense of timing. A right-handed hitter, Gresham showed pull side power during batting practice, driving multiple balls to the wall in left field. The icing on the cake was at the end of a long day, (and 102 degree heat), when Gresham jumped on the mound for a one inning appearance. After his calf cramped in his first warmup pitch, the right-hander went on to pump 87-90 mph and showed a great feel for four pitches. Drop and drive delivery, quick, athletic arm stroke with some effort. His slider is a plus pitch at 75-76 mph with 11-5 shape, and his curveball has good depth at 71-72 mph with 12-6 shape. Threw one changeup at 73 mph. With his upside on the mound, and ability to play the infield, look for Gresham to garner a lot of attention from college recruiters.
