Tollett began gaining recognition early in his freshman year, as he found his way into the middle of a Little Rock Christian line up and handling the catching for the hottest team in class 5A baseball the first half of the 2016 season. Tollett continues to get better and shown well on the local and national level and has stood out as an elite defender and an improving offensive power with doubles power.

Overall Tollett, is an advanced defender, with a quick exchange and a strong arm with carry. He does a great job controlling the run game. Offensively he has impressed with his consistent show of growth. If he continues on the track he is on with added physicality, he could be considered a draft prospect in 2019. If he is picked high enough in the draft, he will be a great addition to the Arkansas roster, as he committed to them in 2016.
