LSU commit. 6-foot-4, 230-pound right-handed hitting catcher and first baseman, physically imposing with grown man strength throughout frame. Quiet at the plate with smooth rhythm in hands. Enormous amount of power. Facing Oklahoma State commit Luke Fernandez, took a first pitch 90 mph fastball deep to left field for a two run home run, 102 exit velocity.

LSU commit. No. 4 ranked player in the Georgia ‘22 class, and No. 9 Nationally. Jones picked up where he left off last year at the GDC tournament by continuing to put on an offensive show. Jones started the weekend off with two homeruns in Game One. In what was already one of the top swings in the country, Jones has only gotten better; the lower-half creates more leverage than before, and the hands and bat speed create serious power. Both homeruns on night one carried over 400 feet, including a 423 foot homerun on an 0-2 breaking ball that left the bat at 110mph. Jones is always a must-watch at-bat and it is scary to think there is still another full high school season ahead of him.

LSU commit. 6-foot-4, 230-pound right-handed hitting catcher, physically advanced in all areas with strength and shows no signs of slowing down. We have had the opportunity to see Jones a number of times early in the season, and he is consistently hitting for power. There is aggression in the swing, any time he makes contact the ball flies off the bat like very few can make it do. Has good feel for hitting and is able to use the whole field.

LSU commit. 6-foot-4, 230-pound right-handed hitting, big, strong frame, physically advanced, looks like he adds more and more strength every time we see him. Has easy bat speed and raw power in his swing, uses the full force of his strength as he shifts weight off his back leg through contact. Had a number of extra bases hits throughout the weekend, including a grand slam that left the yard in a hurry..

Jared “Bear” Jones checks in at a whopping 6-foot-4, 225 pounds and leaves zero doubt about why he is also known as Bear. Jones participated in the Future Games amidst attending Football workouts, but you never would of known from his performance at this event. Jones drew plenty of attention during the showcase portion of the event, sending baseballs deep into the night.  His exit velocity of 102 ranked 2nd in this event among a strong nationally ranked crowd. The imposing right handed swing of Jones at time appears to have an uppercut swing, but more importantly he gets on the same plane with the baseball and has the ability to stay balanced with a nice easy stroke, finding the bat-head frequently. Especially for a young power hitter. Defensively the big “Bear” from Walton high school showed very well in the workout, posting a pop times as low as 1.90, which puts him in pretty elite company. His arm strength is plenty as he turned in the 3rd best reading at 82 mph. Jones spent most of his summer with East Cobb at first base in order to give himself more versatility in the future and those reps have paid off, but Jones will be back behind the plate this Spring, where he started as a Freshman for a very good baseball program in 7A. Jones is already a big name on the east coast, but after this event and the schools showing interest, look for Jones to be a player on the national scene going forward.
