These players went through a pro-style workout on Saturday and took batting practice using Trackman to record hitting metrics, then followed it up with gameplay on Sunday with pitchers throwing multiple innings.

Kicking off our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look back at some of the top Alabama performers and standouts from the event. Continuing over the course of the next week or so, we will release various leaderboards from the event then transition into releasing individual scouting reports for each player in attendance.

Porter Dykes C / RHP / Providence Christian, AL / 2024

Uncommitted. 6-foot-2, 185-pounds. Really athletic with some strength to build. One of the top two-way prospects still on the market in the senior class in AL, and excelled in both facets against some strong competition this past weekend. Posted one of the top rounds of BP during the workout on Saturday, and ranked near the top of nearly every statistical category. Clocked at 6.69 60 YD, was 1.91-2.08 from the crouch with a top C velocity of 77 mph (event-bests), and sprayed lasers to all fields registering low-90 EV's during BP. On the mound, the right-hander attacks the zone using a compact arm stroke and delivers it out of a higher 3/4 slot. Throughout his outing, Dykes worked 84-87 mph (2450 rpm+) with natural cutting action and located it to both sides of the plate. He also showed a good ability to spin a 73-75 mph slider (2550 rpm) that tunnels well off of his fastball and has good, late bite to it. Talented two-way prospect that should not be on the board for much longer.

Cooper Jarvis MIF / Gardendale, AL / 2024

Gadsden State CC recruit. 5-foot-10, 175-pounds. Athletic, proportionally-built frame. Excelled across multiple areas throughout the weekend, and capped it off with a pair of home runs during gameplay on Sunday. Started off his weekend with a really good workout, highlighted by one of the more mature rounds of BP where he delivered consistent firm contact to all fields with a top EV at 97.4 mph. He's extremely balanced throughout his offensive operation and takes low-effort swings while still making quality contact with ease. Possesses quick hands and above-average bat-to-ball skills from the right side, and also has developed some sneaky power with a max distance of 387 ft. during BP, an event-best. Gamer, utility-type prospect with a versatile defensive skill set that allows him to play multiple positions defensively.

Carter Jackman OF / Hoover , AL / 2024

Uncommitted. 6-foot-4, 190-pounds. Mature strength to a long-levered frame with room to add more in the future. Came into the event as an uncommitted name-to-know in the senior class in AL and continued to boost his stock with a quality performance all weekend. The carrying tool for the right-hander is certainly the right-handed stick, which consistently peppered both gaps during his round of BP, registering a top EV of 96.5 mph. Possesses some elite bat speed (76.1 mph avg.) and looks to hammer to the gaps and create damage from the right side. Profiles as a corner outfielder with decent speed that clocked 7.23 in the 60 YD, and moves well laterally tracking balls in the grass with a top OF velocity of 93 mph, an event-best.

Samuel Henegar 1B / Alexandria, AL / 2024

Uncommitted. 6-foot-2, 225-pounds. Strong build with some physicality; typical first baseman frame. Continues to show the ability to make noticeable strides during each look and enjoyed a quality weekend offensively. Hitting near the .500 mark for the fall after a good summer circuit, the right-hander posted one of the more impressive rounds of BP with loud contact coming with nearly each swing. Tons of strength at the point of contact and doesn't take much effort to drive the ball with authority. Ranked near the top of most TM Hitting categories; 96.6 mph EV (4th), 89.8 mph avg. EV (2nd), 367 ft. max distance (2nd), 283 ft. avg. distance (1st). Carried over the strong workout into gameplay, where he accumulated multiple hits, including an opposite-field triple. Another prospect that shouldn't be on the board for much longer.

James Graphos SS / Mountain Brook, AL / 2024

Uncommitted. 6-foot-2, 180-pounds. Lean, projectable frame with smooth, athletic actions all-around. Top-50 prospect in the 2024 class in AL that continues to produce with bat in each look. Balanced, athletic setup hitting from the left side of the plate; excellent bat-to-ball ability with a high contact rate. All-fields, line-drive type hitter with a low-effort swing that consistently finds solid contact. Mature approach to hitting showing the ability to drive the ball to the opposite field during gameplay against some quality arms; clean path to the baseball and extends nicely. Smooth, slick-fielding infielder that moves well laterally with accurate throws across the diamond. Posted a 7.16 60 YD and has been clocked lower at 6.83 in previous showcases. One of the top uncommitted shortstops in the senior class in AL.

Kannon Robertson SS / Cleburne County, AL / 2024

Uncommitted. 5-foot-11, 195-pounds. Thick, strong build with some athleticism. Maybe not as well-known of a prospect in the 2024 class in AL, but has showed in multiple viewings he's certainly a senior name-to-know on the market. Began his weekend with a standout showing during the workout on Saturday, especially with the right-handed bat, where he consistently lined hard contact into the pull-side gap during BP with consistent low-90 EV's. Possesses some quick hands that help lead the heavy barrel to the point of contact, and uses his strength well to impact the baseball. Continued to take quality swings during gameplay on Sunday, where he lined a fastball into CF for an L8 that showed some carry off the bat. Can stick on the left side of the infield, and may profile best as a third baseman with his right-handed bat being the carrying tool for the future.
