Southeast Senior Games: Alabama Quick Hits


Austin Sharp
Alabama Scouting Director

EMERSON, GA - The Southeast Senior Games on Monday, July 25th will kick-off a seven day period at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, GA where hundreds of the country’s top uncommitted prospects will put their talents on display. This event will feature some of the top uncommitted players from the 2023 class that have been invited by their state scouting director.

The event will begin with a pro-style workout for all the position players that includes the 60 yard dash, BP with TrackMan ball flight analysis and Blast Motion swing analysis, and a defensive evaluation. Following the showcase, players will split into their teams and play a double header.

Prospects will represent their state on Teams Alabama, Carolinas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mid-Atlantic, Mississippi/Louisiana, and Tennessee.

 

OF Connor Cosby, Auburn HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 6-foot-1, 190-pounds. One of the leading hitters this spring for one of the top high school programs in the state. Continues to show excellent ability to find the barrel at a consistent rate during both batting practice and in a gameplay setting. Shows really good pitch recognition and ability to see spin, really selective from the left side, mature approach with ability to handle both right-handers and left-handers. Drove balls to all parts of the field during BP, and then found multiple barrels during gameplay with one coming for a double to the LCF gap. Also a hard-worker that plays the game the right way. Shouldn't be uncommitted for too much longer.

OF Caleb Freeman, Etowah HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 5-foot-10, 175-pounds. Prospect who has flown a bit under the radar for some time enjoyed a stellar showing in front of a handful of college recruiters. Premium athlete with consistent hard-hit line drives to the pull-side gap during his round of BP, showing quick hands through the zone and a line drive approach. Translated that swing over to gameplay easily, where he recorded a couple hits, including a laser down the LF line for a double. Gamer-type mentality who plays the game hard.

1B/LHP Hayes Harrison, Oxford HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 6-foot-0, 180-pounds. Very few prospects in attendance at this event enjoyed the showing Harrison had, doing it both at the plate and on the mound. Flashed solid feel for the barrel hitting from the left side during BP with multiple low-90 EV's, short and direct path to the baseball, more line drives into both gaps. Was also 3-for-3 in one game, and posted a clean inning of work on the mound working in the low-80's with solid secondary offerings. Possesses a quick barrel through the zone with a mostly flat path. Good one to know.

RHP Garrison Kahn, Oak Mountain HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 6-foot-3, 185-pounds. Long and lanky right-handed pitcher with some projection left is known as one of the top uncommitted arms in the state. Showed some lively stuff on the mound in his outing working his fastball around the 85-89 mph range with solid command to the glove side coming out of a long and loose arm action. Slider has gradual 11-5 shape getting some swing-and-miss in the low-70's while maintaining the same arm speed. Quality two-pitch mix that he showed good command over, while mixing and sequencing both en route to a few strikeouts in his outing.

LHP Cole Lowe, Mortimer Jordan HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 5-foot-9, 170-pounds. Probably one of the most intriguing arms at the event that creates a really tough matchup to either-sided hitter. Racking up numerous strikeouts in his two innings of work, the rising senior worked in the 84-86 mph range with tons of horizontal movement with his fastball. His slider was equally as impressive in the low-70's, showing the ability to sweep it across the zone to left-handers, and back-door it to right-handers. Flashed solid mid-70's changeup with fade. Tough, deceptive 3/4 slot. Would be a really solid addition to a program at the next level.

OF Mason Steele, Headland HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 6-foot-2, 175-pounds. Another prospect with plenty of intriguing tools across the board with a lean, athletic frame. A 6.81-runner, Steele also showed the ability to impact the game with his pull-side power with numerous balls hammered to the gaps that registered in the mid-90's. Uses a simple toe-tap load for trigger and works his barrel up through the zone creating some loft hitting from the left side. During gameplay, the rising senior was consistently finding the barrel and recorded a double to the pull-side gap in one at-bat. In just a few looks over the past year, Steele has really impressed in each viewing and has some intriguing upside with a frame that should carry more strength.

OF/LHP Gabe Young, Mountain Brook HS (AL), 2023
Uncommitted. 5-foot-11, 195-pounds. One of our favorite left-handed bats in the AL's rising senior class swung it well all week at LakePoint Sports. Playing in the PBR 17U National Championships, Young was a consistent run-producer in the cleanup spot for Top Gun Baseball, flashing some pull-side power with more on the way. That same left-handed stroke showed up for this event, where he worked towards the pull-side gap with consistent firm contact showing lift and quality separation in his swing. Also worked in the mid-80's on the mound in his inning of work. Another high-follow left-handed hitter in the '23 class who would be a solid addition to a program at the next level.
