Top Prospects 2017 Pitching

 

McAllister, really made a jump in 2017, worked through the spring with Coach Ron Bradley and staff, as the Wildcats made their way to the state championship before falling to Cabot in the finals.

He really started gaining traction on the recruiting aspect, this summer playing for Perfect Timing. Mcallister displayed a feel for the strike zone with three pitches consistently. He had success against some of the best competition in the mid-south.

Right now McAllister is uncommitted and is one the top uncommitted prospects in the state. He is a large framed athlete with a quick arm and a feel to pitch. He projects to throw harder and should turn himself into a solid NCAA Division I pitcher.
