Prep Baseball Georgia

Emerson, Georgia: WIth week one of the Georgia Dugout club tournament in the books, we take a look at some of the top upperclass and underclass players at the event. Today we will look at scout notes and videos of 14 underclassmen that showed out this past weekend. With upperclassmen to follow tomorrow. 

Trevor Condon, OF, 2026, Etowah
Per Usual, another showing where Trevor Condon just hits. The sophomore came through with timely hits throughout the weekend in a variety of situations. Advanced pitch recognition and approach allowed the Miami commit to find his pitch in seemingly every at-bat. Spoiled countless good pitches, and personally I counted 26 pitches across four at-bats on Saturday for Condon, while reaching base each time. Plenty of twitch and athleticism in the 5-foot-10, 170-pound frame that plays well in the outfield with plenty of range in all directions backed by plus foot speed. We expected a big spring from Condon, and the outfielder is off to a roaring start.

Joseph Contreras, RHP, 2026, Blessed Trinity
Facing a veteran lineup from North Paulding, Contreras showed impressive poise and maturity on the mound with stuff to match. Uber-projectable, high-waisted 6-foot-3, 180-pound frame, the uncommitted sophomore works downhill with good extension and explosive arm speed from a near over-the-top arm slot. Fastball is heavy at 85-88 with good arm-side run and ability to land to both sides of the plate. Advanced feel for a mid-70s curveball with 11-5 shape and good depth. The ability to land for both strikes and burying it for whiffs was present. Flashed a high-70s changeup as well with good fade and spin-killing traits (1100 RPM). The upside really flashes with Contreras, who could be just starting to unlock his potential.

Matthew Sharman, RHP/INF, 2026, Etowah
In one of the better two-way showings of the weekend, Sharman was electric for Etowah in the midst of their 3-0 showing. Batting cleanup throughout, the Georgia commit was all over the barrel consistently in an all-fields approach. Sharman does an excellent job staying balanced and matching plane with a compact right-handed stroke that boasts present above-average bat speed and barrel feel. The sophomore came through with RBI knocks to both the pull-side and backside on the weekend. On the other side, Sharman came in relief on the mound in a big matchup against Walton, and may have been even more impressive. With an attacking demeanor, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound right-hander filled up the zone with both strikes and in-zone misses from a three-pitch mix. Fastball lived 88-91 while grabbing 92 twice with excellent carry through the zone. Mid-to-high 70s slider creates good tilt and horizontal movement for whiffs. Changeup flashed as an above-average pitch with great arm-side fade that was devastating to left-handed hitters at 78-80. It was a standout performance for Sharman overall.

Jason Williams, MIF, 2026, Denmark
Batting leadoff for a deep Denmark lineup, Williams continues to take quality at-bats every time we see him. Picking up hits in each of the three games over the weekend, including his first home run of the year. It’s a stoic setup from the left-side with present bat speed and barrel control that allows Williams to do damage throughout the zone in an all-fields approach. A strong defender in the dirt with good range and soft hands. Rarely looks out of control with present arm strength. Quality overall showing against strong competition early in the year for the uncommitted sophomore.

Matthew Westbrook, RHP, 2027, Alexander
We knew Westbrook was getting the ball for the Friday night game for his first varsity start. The nerves would be high, but he is going to be a key piece for Alexander on the mound, so Coach Martinez gave him the ball against a tough McIntosh squad. He worked out of the first, and then starting attacking in the 2nd, with a couple strikeouts. He attacked with the fastball up to 88 and settled in at 84-87. He was mixing the curveball and change up with confidence. He kept his composure in the final inning after giving up a double to one of the best hitters at the event. He worked out of it with only 2 runs given up. Those types of innings are great to see as a freshman. He kept them in the ball game and gave them a chance.

Sebastien Walsh, LHP, 2026, Denmark
Uncommitted. 6-foot-3, 190-pounds. Walsh had a strong and efficient outing at the Georgia Dugout Club tournament. He went 5 innings, striking out 7 while only allowing 4 hits. Walsh stayed in the zone producing weak contact and showed strikeout stuff. Walsh displayed a low to mid 80’s FB topping out at 85, mixed with a solid curveball with good depth. He showed the ability to mix in a changeup when needed. Walsh showed smooth mechanics, really finishing his pitches and getting his backside through well. Walsh will be fun to watch as he has plenty of room to progress.

Colin White, LHP, 2026, Harrison
Georgia Tech Commit. 6-foot-3, 180-pounds. White, once again comes out with an electric outing. White displayed the ability to work out of a first inning jam while settling in to go 3 innings while only allowing one hit. White threw an electrifying fastball up to 90 with good control to either side of the plate. White mixes in the BB well keeping hitters off balance. White, one of the top arm talents in the class, shows a ton of upside as he continues his high school career.

Wyatt Still, LHP, 2026, Tattnall Square
Still stacked up against a tough North Cobb Christian line up. He has a wiry frame with a ton to build on in the future. The delivery is smooth and efficient, with good back leg drive. It comes out of a high ¾ slot with some run/sink. The fastball worked up to 82, and mixed in a 12-6 curveball in the high 60’s. The pitch ability was impressive, mixing 3 pitching for strikes and keeping hitters guessing. Arms like this always seem to develop into everyday guys with their ability to throw strikes and force contact.

Brennan Roth, RHP, 2026, Cherokee
Roth got the chance to log some of his first varsity innings in the prime time slot on Friday night, with his team carrying a lead and fantastic start by Reid Worley. He squared off against a tough Blessed Trinity line up. He did not waste any time, and got ahead of guys early. He mixed in his off speed well, keeping hitters off balance. The ability to keep the ball down in the zone was the biggest key for Roth. The delivery is well synced and ready to add size and strength to add more velo in the future. The fastball worked up to 81, but really seemed to get on the hitters and produced whiffs. He also got it done at the plate this weekend, making Roth a name to keep an eye this spring as he continues to develop.

David Jackson Jr., LHP/OF, 2026, Alexander
Jackson got it done on the mound, and at the plate this weekend. He put together tons of great AB’s, and will fun to see again this weekend. On the mound he worked up to 88 on a cold, windy day. He attacked hitters, mixing pitches well. The 6-foot-4 frame has a ton of room for growth. The finish is strong, with good intent. Once he starts getting everything into his lower half we will see him sneak into the low 90’s. The sky's the limit for Jackson on the mound. The base is strong for the sophomore and will be fun to watch develop.

Cohen Bohannon, LHP, 2026, Allatoona
Slender 6-0 145lb frame with plenty of room to fill out. Long arms with broad shoulders. Low effort delivery, longer arm action to a L3Q slot, very tough to pick up and all pitches tunnel well off one another. Found the zone with ease. Heavy, sinking FB at 84-85 (1869) was dotted on outer half and generated s/m below zone & will blow by hitters at times. Best secondary is CH at 74-76 (1221) with depth, chance to be a plus pitch. Great feel, falls off the table and grabs s/m out of same tunnel as FB, keeping hitters off balance. SL flashes sweep at 70-72. High level arm with polish and legit upside.

Isander Poventud, IF, 2026, Kennesaw Mountain
Strong and solid 6-0 190-pound frame with power present throughout, Balanced setup in the box, easy chest load to stretch core and allow the barrel to flow through the zone with force. In sync mechanically and can manipulate barrel in the zone with ease due to level path and quality all-fields approach. Good pitch recognition skills with juice at contact and more power in the tank. Chance to be a high level run producer for years to come.

Cooper Slayton, IF, 2026, Allatoona
Lean, athletic frame at 6-0, 145lbs. Wider stance in the box activates the lower half in load, good mechanics. Natural, slightly uphill path & turns the barrel over nicely in a tight window. Solid bat speed through contact. Line drive approach now, but power will come as the frame & mobility continues to develop.

Caden Dawson, OF, 2027, Blessed Trinity
The #1 players in the Georgia class of 2027 and ranked #6 nationally gained some valuable experience this weekend. He saw some big time arms, one being Missouri commit DeShawn Morgan was upper 80’s to low 90’s. He had some great swings on him, and earned a walk. Later in the game he forced a 3-2 count on an upper 80’s fastball, and won the AB with a single to left, then stole 2nd a couple pitches later. Dawson knows he can compete with these guys, and the confidence shows on the field. He is aggressive on the base paths, and puts together quality at bats. The more AB’s he gets at the varsity level the better he is going to get it.
