Drew Gartman SS / 3B / Valley View, AR / 2025

6-foot-3, 175-pound long-limbed and lean athlete that offers plenty to dream on, is the top uncommited prospect in the state's 2025 class. High level athlete, ran a 6.64 60-yard dash at the East Arkansas Preseason ID, but has ran as fast as a 6.46 at our events in the past. Helped lead Valley View to a state championship this spring.

Zach Lawing 3B / Rogers, AR / 2025

Strong, broad-shouldered, and physical 6-foot, 185-pound frame. Came away from the US Nationals & Affiliates Scout Day as a huge winner and parlayed that into a strong spring where he showed well in front of our staff multiple times. Packs loud tools into his compact frame; 102.2 mph max exit velocity, 96.9 mph average, 349 ft. peak batted distance, and was 92 across the infield.

Landon Holzhauer C / Fayetteville, AR / 2025

Strong, compact 5-foot-11, 195-pound backstop. Represented Arkansas at the PBR Future Games last August, sits at No. 25 overall in the state's 2025 rankings. Strong arm behind the plate, holds strength within his right-handed barrel too, pull-side approach.

Casey Christ 2B / Bentonville, AR / 2025

Strong, compact frame, ranked No. 26 overall in the class. Handsy swing, hitterish look, comfortable using the whole field with balance. Top-of-the-order type bat that's still on the market to follow in the class.

Charlie Graves OF / Fayetteville, AR / 2025

6-foot-1, 190-pounds, represented Arkansas at the PBR Future Games last summer. Coming off a strong season at the plate for Fayetteville, earning All-Conference honors. Strong right-handed barrel that's shown above-average bat strength in both game and showcase settings to our staff.

Rylan Jones 1B / Jonesboro, AR / 2025

6-foot-5, 225-pounds athlete to follow throughout the summer as he builds himself back up. Was up to 88 mph from the left side at the Prospects Scout Day last summer.


6-foot-3, 185-pounds, ranked inside the top-30 prospects in the state's soon-to-be senior class. Represented Arkansas at the PBR Future Games last summer. Pitches in the mid-to-upper-80s with his fastball and features a tight mid-70s slider.

Greyson Westbrook 3B / WYNNE HIGH SCHOOL, AR / 2025

6-foot, 195-pounds. Another uncommitted name in this 2025 class that represented Arkansas at the Future Games last summer. Had a strong showing at the Preseason All-State this winter and earned All-State honors after an impressive spring with Wynne. Slashed .412/.487/.544 and struck out 59 over 28 innings pitched as of April 25th. Earned our Player of the Week honors in the eighth week of play. Strong right-handed swing that looks to elevate the baseball, favors the pull-side.

Jayde Taylor OF / Valley View, AR / 2025

Strong, physical 6-foot-3, 205-pound frame that helped play a role in the Blazers recent state championship. Ran a 7.13 60-yard dash at the East Arkansas Preseason ID this winter, reaching a peak speed of 19.3 mph at his size with a 1.69 10-yard split.

Maddox Hampton RHP / NETTLETON HIGH SCHOOL, AR / 2025

5-foot-11, 180-pounds. Represented Arkansas at the Future Games last summer. Also a three-star quarterback prospect that's garnered national recognition in that regard. Easy arm strength, recently pitched at 88-90 mph at the PBR Showdown at LakePoint.

Payton Sterritt RHP / Sheridan , AR / 2025

5-foot-11, 170-pounds. Coming off an impressive spring season for Sheridan. Simple right-handed swing with barrel feel, repeats and doesn't try to do too much. Also a polished strike-thrower on the mound.

Jonathan Pickard II OF / Carlisle , AR / 2025

6-foot, 190-pounds. Earned his third straight All-Conference honors this spring for Carlisle. Strong, fast right-handed swing with hand speed, one to watch this summer.

Physically built 6-foot-2, 205-pound athlete. Holds bat strength within a long, uphill right-handed swing. Drove a deep double to the pull-side in a look during the spring season.

Luke Altom SS / Harber , AR / 2025

Compact 5-foot-8, 150-pound athlete that can really run - posted a 6.71 laser timed 60-yard dash at an event last year and plays like it on the field. Impressed in a look this spring during the state playoffs for Har-Ber. Doesn't try to do too much at the plate, stays in the hitting zone and comfortable spraying to all fields.

Carter Morris OF / Fayetteville, AR / 2025

6-foot, 180-pound athlete with present strength and room for more, looks the part. Polished left-handed swing, stays short to the baseball and in the hitting zone. Consistently gets off quality swings off the barrel. A name-to-know left-handed hitter that's still on the market in Arkansas.

Ford Raffo 3B / Nettleton, AR / 2025

6-foot-3, 185-pound long-levered athlete with plenty of room for physical projection. Easy juice to the pull-side, left the yard a few times throughout the high school season that way. Controls his levers well, stays inside the baseball and is able to elevate consistently. An upside right-handed bat to follow in the class.

Braxton Graber RHP / Rogers Heritage, AR / 2025

Athlete and intentful mover down the mound. Recently showed well at the PBR Showdown in LakePoint, bumping his fastball up to 90 mph, while pitching at 86-89 mph. Showed big bend and arch on a tight 72-75 mph curveball as well.
