Senior Superlatives: Top Dual Sport Athletes


PBR Georgia Staff



It has been a busy few weeks for Prep Baseball Report and PBR Georgia regarding the Class of 2020 and the approaching 2020 MLB Draft. First, we had the update of the 
2020 National Rankings, with Georgia being well-represented, followed by the combined High School, Junior College and College 2020 Draft Board. Extending over the next few weeks, we are going to dive into the 2020 Georgia rankings and give our take on the prospects who possess the top tools in the state. Yesterday, we began by looking at the top-5 left-handed bats, top-5 right-handed batstop power hitterstop speedtop defensive outfielderstop defensive catcherstop defensive shortstops, and most projectable position players in the state. Today, we look at the top-5 dual sport athletes in the state's 2020 class.

Top Dual Sport Athletes

Nate McCollum OF / Dutchtown, GA / 2020

McCollum is a live bodied dual sport athlete from Dutchtown.  The compact and strong right-handed hitting outfielder can really turn on the jets and has promising bat-speed as well. Originally committed to North Carolina State, McCollum has decided to stay home and is now set to attend Georgia Tech for football and baseball next year.

Garrett Spikes OF / Mountain View, GA / 2020

Sneaky good athlete and future prospect.  Left-handed stroke with some bat-speed and a body to project on.  Actions are a little big defensively at SS, but he makes the plays he is supposed and even the ones is not suppose too.

Dalton Pearson OF / Johns Creek, GA / 2020

Young right handed hitting OF who recently transferred into Johns Creek HS.  Bat-speed and rhythm are apparent right away.  Will have to answer some profile questions in the future, but definitely a good next level player in the future.  

Noah Cook SS / 2B / Eastside, GA / 2020

Noah Cook showed a very projectable athletic frame at 6-foot-1 165-pounds. He has feel to play the game and did it with some ease of operation. In the batters box Cook is in need of added strength, but he has a very athletic set-up and a very handsy stroke. He is level through the zone and shows a mature all fields approach. He posted a 75 mph exit velocity. Defensively Cook's athletic ability show up, with a long rangy frame he picked the ball up clean and showed good feet. Cook is also a strong talent as a high school quarterback and has a quiet confidence to his make-up. I like the DNA to everything he does on the baseball field and if he can add some strength he has a strong chance to play the game at the next level.

Harrison Aulds OF / RHP / First Presbyterian Day , GA / 2020

Checking in at 5-foot-10, 190 pounds, Harrison can only be described as powerful. He is balanced and quiet in his approach at the plate and has plenty of power to hurt the baseball inside his zone. He displayed an impressive exit velocity of 94 mph, driving balls in both the batting practice and live game portion of the event. Defensively, Aulds has plenty of range and arm to play all three outfield spots. He has a good combination of measurable ability and present baseball acumen to his compact, stocky, strong game.
