 Ravenwood had a stout club in 2021 and they'll return a majority of their guys for this season. Cooper is locked in to handle hot corner duties and has shown he can be a solid weapon on the mound (Up to 90). The Valpo commit will be featured in a deep lineup, and will have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs from the meat of the order.

TANNER FRANKLIN RHP / 1B / JEFFERSON COUNTY, TN / 2022

No. 59: Franklin burst onto the scene this summer, running the FB up to 90 and showing an elite level of spin on his CB. The Kennesaw State commit has a large, physical frame and should be the ace alongside Beau Revord. Jeff Co. will be in a friendly, compact district, and they'll lean on their top end arms to make a run this postseason.

TURNER JUNKINS C / RHP / SILVERDALE BAPTIST ACADEMY, TN / 2023

No. 58: Junkins can do a little of everything for Silverdale, as he threw a lot of innings and can play multiple positions in the field. They'll have a deep returning roster, which we marked at #24 in the Preseason Power 25. The MTSU commit will play a key role in helping them advance further into the postseason this year.

AUSTIN KING OF / RHP / HARDIN VALLEY, TN / 2022

No. 57: Hardin Valley's offense was often buzzing last year as they could put up runs in bunches, and right in the middle of it was Austin King. The tall ETSU commit can really handle the stick and mash balls into the power alleys. They'll have to replace several graduating seniors, but King should continue to cruise in the middle of the order with Ty Denton. 

BRADEN GRAVES 3B / OF / GIBBS, TN / 2023

No. 56: The Gibbs Eagles captured the 2021 2A state title, and they asked Braden Graves to do a little of everything for them. He's flashed a FB up to 88, but sits more mid 80s. He's shown great athleticism and juice at the plate, and with their graduating departures he'll need to play a key role in their title defense for the new 3A. 

JACKSON UNDERWOOD RHP / OF / RIVERDALE , TN / 2022

No. 55: If you showed up to the ballpark last year, and Jackson Underwood was on the mound, then you were usually in for a nice quick game. The MTSU commit was incredibly efficient, throwing all his pitches for strikes and mixing to keep lineups at bay. He may have been slightly overmatched against some other top district arms stuff wise, but his intangibles and pitchability leveled the field and allowed him twirl some big games for Riverdale. They're another club who will return a lot of key pieces and Underwood will be at the forefront of that pitching staff.

ANDREW HOOVER 1B / LHP / WEST RIDGE, TN / 2023

No. 54: Andrew Hoover was spectacular last year for Sullivan South, helping lead them to a sub-state appearance. They'll transition into a new school at West Ridge while also moving from 2A to 4A. Hoover pitches it in the low 80s and can mix effectively while also being a power bat in the middle of the order from the left side. They'll be matched up with reigning champ Science Hill in their district plus other contenders, so the "new kids on the block" will rely on Hoover to repeat his magic from last season to guide them.

BO BURKLOW 1B / 3B / CHRIST PRESBYTERIAN, TN / 2023

No. 53: Burklow is a dual-sport athlete, who is garnering interest in football after decommitting from Tennessee baseball. He's a big physical CINF and plays TE on the gridiron, and last year helped lead CPA to their D2-A state title. He's got some big pop in the barrel and will have plenty of run scoring opportunities with a deep cast around him. CPA will transition up to D2-AA this year, but they've shown they have the firepower to challenge anyone in the postseason. 

ELI HUDDLESTON LHP / OF / UPPERMAN , TN / 2023

No. 52: Huddleston doesn't wow you with any over the top tools, but last season he put up some monster numbers leading to a Mr. Baseball finalist honors. He's got some juice in the barrel from the left side and he can really pitch in the low 80s. Upperman expects to be another competitive club this season, and Huddleston's output cannot be overlooked in 2022.

 Ravenwood had a stout club in 2021 and they'll return a majority of their guys for this season. Cooper is locked in to handle hot corner duties and has shown he can be a solid weapon on the mound (Up to 90). The Valpo commit will be featured in a deep lineup, and will have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs from the meat of the order.

Uncommitted; 6-foot-2, 195-pound Future Games third baseman recently hopped on the bump at LakePoint Fall Invite, sitting 85-89, T90 and mixing hard downer CB at 77-78.  Cooper is a strong corner spot prospect, but the arm is something to keep eyes on. 

8/01/20

6-foot-2, 195-pound corner infielder had a steady weekend across the board.  Cooper, a natural third baseman, proved to be one of the better defenders for Team Tennessee.  Solid frame w/ some present strength.  Really handles the glove with good transitions and the arm strength to stay on the hot corner, while also handling his business at first base.  Offensively, the right-handed hitter barreled up some balls with not much to show for it in gameplay, but good approach and some gap power there (Max Exit Velo: 95.9 mph | Distance: 363 ft via Trackman).  Showed great bat speed (Avg: 74.9 mph via Blast) as well.  At the next level, an exceptional defender, regardless of position, and can make impacts driving in runs trailing the heart of the order.  

1/19/20

6-foot-2, 190-pound  athletic frame. In the box, the right-handed hitter had a max exit velocity of 83 mph. Begins in a balanced stance with a smooth load, then uses a short stride before his swing. Showed an uphill swing plane, as well as quick bat speed and extension on his finish. Athletic in the infield, his best throw was recorded at 78 mph across the field; had a clean exchange, soft hands and quick footwork. Movements laterally were twitchy. Showed a ¾ slot and consistent accuracy to the base. In the 60-yard dash, he recorded a time of 7.2.
