TEXAS, USA - Now that we have updated all class rankings for the 2019-2021 Grads, we will highlight some of the top uncommitted talent that college recruiters will want to follow closely moving into the 2019 HS Season. Today, we bring you five catchers from the DFW Preseason ID. Once we finish our Preseason Event Calendar, we will be working through player reports and updating the Texas Class Rankings. 





Duke has a strong, thick frame at 5-foot-11, 200-pounds. The right-handed hitter loads back smooth with a reverse leg lift as he triggers his hands and creates separation, landing stacked. Aggressive hack with loose-quick hands and direct path created hard contact and gap power during BP with a top exit velocity of 96 mph. Duke threw strikes to second base with a top velocity from the crouch of 78 mph, and pop times ranging from 1.86-2.11. Quick footwork with an easy gather and clean exchange allow his arm to work well, while his lower half mobility and soft hands allow him to receive at a high level.
