The Texas 2018 class is extremely talented, and rich in power arms, which is reflected in our recent update of 2018 Rankings. With more and more players committing to schools each week. Here are 10 more pitchers from the 2018 class that are still available, including two that are ranked.

 

JACE HUTCHINS

RHP / COLLEGE STATION, TX / 2018
 

Rankings  State Rank:184 POS:70
Hutchins has a strong, projectable, high-waisted frame at 6-foot-4, 200-pounds with broad shoulders. The right-hander works from a high slot with a short, compact arm stroke, and quick hand from back to front. His fastball flashes downward tilt, ranging from 81-85 mph. Hutchins can really pull the string on his changeup, a pitch he throws with fastball arm speed at 73-75 mph with good depth at the bottom of the zone. He threw on breaking ball that he was on the side of at 69 mph.

 

 

 

BRYCE TONEY

LHP / OF / CYPRESS RANCH, TX / 2018

Toney looks slightly taller than his listed 5-foot-10, 160-pounds, and has a lean-muscular, athletic, projectable frame. The left-hander works from a high-¾ slot with a quick arm stroke. He gets his hand out front on release and locates very well to his glove side, not missing arm side once. His fastball ranged from 81-83 mph with good life. When he did miss the zone it was down to his glove side with life. He throws a hard curveball with 1-7 shape and excellent depth at 68-69 mph. Both his FB and CB come from the same window of release. His changeup is a solid pitch at 75-77 mph, and flashes depth and fade. With his athletic frame, quick arm, and ability to spin his curveball, he would be a great pickup for a college recruiting class.
