Prep Baseball Georgia

Emerson, Georgia: WIth week two 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 23 upperclassmen that showed out this past weekend. 


Daniel Parker, 3B, 2025, Hillgrove
Uncommitted. Lean, athletic frame. We got a chance to see Parker early last summer, and he has really made some big strides since. The swing is as simple as they come at the plate. He barrels balls consistently through the middle of the field. He is much stronger since we saw him last, and has really helped him be able to drive balls in the game. The hands start flat and keeps the barrel on plane, covering the entire plate. Parker is a versatile defender that could stick anywhere in the infield or even slide into an outfield spot.

Carson Vick, C, 2025 Hillgrove
Uncommitted. Vick made a strong impression last year in the playoffs, and has progressed even more since. The maturity behind the plate really stands out, and he has the ability to be an above average defender behind the dish. The catch and throw is effortless and he is a tireless worker, covering up balls in the dirt. Reliable back stops are hard to come by, and Vick has the total package. He has really come into his own at the plate. The lower half continues to develop, adding strength to all parts of his game. He has a gamer mentality and will make any college program better at the next level.

Avery Wilson, OF, 2025, Hillgrove
Uncommitted. Athlete. Wilson was a breakout guy last year, and had a strong summer at Top Prospect Games over the summer. He is a + runner with quick hands and some crazy bat speed. He can change the game with his legs, turning singles into doubles and routine ground outs to singles. He can stick at any outfield spot, as he floats to balls in the gap, running them down with ease. The strength is there at the plate, and the swing will continue to polish as he will be an impact guy for Hillgrove this spring.

Jacob Bohacek, SS, 2024, Marietta
Uncommitted. Lean/athletic frame. Bohacek had one of the biggest weekends of the event going 9 for 13 with a triple, 2 doubles and 9 RBI’s. He can stick at the premium, SS position with an above average glove and strong arm. He can make all the tough plays in the hole, and throws well on the run. He simplified things at the plate with minimal movement and good barrel control. He is always on time, and has the ability to adjust to pitches on the fly, staying balanced in the lower half. Bohacek is a put together ball player with all the tools, and can even run it into the upper 80’s on the mound.

Matthew Lyons, RHP, 2024, East Forsyth
Uncommitted. Lyons has quickly become one of the top 2 way prospects still uncommitted in the ‘24 class. Found the barrell all weekend at Georgia Dugout Club and then came in for the close in a tight game against Carrollton. Over the summer we saw him creep into the high 80’s, and on Friday night he ran it up to 91. He has cleaned up the delivery, allowing his arm to be on time, and has really made his FB tick up. It has a ton of life up in the zone. He mixed in a sharp CB in the low 70’s disrupting hitters' timing allowing the FB to be even more effective. Lyons is going to be one to follow closely this spring, as he could really make an impact at the next level.

Aidan Wray, RHP, 2025, Denmark
Uncommitted. Athletic frame. Wray is one of those pitchers that will help any team win games. He can fill into a starter or reliever role because he has the ability to throw strikes and force contact. He can throw the slider in any account, which really opens up the zone for him, and keeps the hitters guessing. The fastball was in the low 80’s and we have seen him get into the mid 80’s before. The velo will continue to climb with the clean, repeatable delivery. He is calm under pressure, and got a big strikeout with the bases loaded in a tight game.

Trey Farr, OF, 2025, East Forsyth
Uncommitted. One of the top bats of the weekend had a big Friday night with a no doubt home run, and continued to find the barrell all weekend. We got to see Farr all summer on a strong Devine squad. He was a steady performer with the same smooth, left handed swing. The frame has really developed since the fall, and has seemingly help him put everything together at the plate. The power now stands out, and he finds the barrell for loud contact, consistently. He is in his legs more at the plate, and has added a small toe tap that is really smooth and consistent. The lefty can also run it up into the upper 80’s on the mound, making him one of the strongest 2 way guys still on the market in the class.

Foster Currie, OF, 2024, Sprayberry
UNC Greensboro Commit. Currie had a good weekend at the Georgia Dugout Club Tournament. Currie showed out at the Georgia Senior Games back in September. At the plate, Currie has a strong presence at the plate and puts together real mature at bats. Currie has a physical build where he can hit for power to all parts of the field. He stays in sync at the plate and stays on plane through the zone well.

Maddox Monsour, SS/CF, 2025, Carrollton
As strong as you’ll find in the 2025 class, especially at a premium defensive position, Monsour was living on the barrel throughout the weekend. Very compact right-handed swing works short to long with present above-average bat speed. Power shows up to all-fields for extra bases and gets strengthened by plus speed from the Texas commit. Monsour can be a major factor in the 2025 class with a big spring and summer.

Bryce Kingeter, 3B, 2024, Carrollton
Young Harris College has put together a fantastic recruiting class in 2024, and could have another quality piece in Kingeter. The senior does a good job keeping his hands inside and controls the zone well. Shows the ability to tap into his present raw power without selling out from a lean but strong 6-foot-3 frame that still has projection remaining. Found multiple barrels to the pull-side including a no-doubt shot to LCF that came off the bat at 101. Good range and arm strength to stick at the hot corner, and will be focal for Carrollton this spring.

Jackson Blakely, RHP, 2024, Upson-Lee
With a healthy dose of a quality fastball/slider combo, the Georgia Tech commit had a loud showing against a strong Denmark lineup. Physical 6-foot-0 frame with a compact arm action, Blakely lived 90-92 with heavy arm-side run and late life that missed barrels. Feel for the low-80s gyro slider was advanced with strong ability to land for both strikes and in-zone misses. Showed some feel as well for a mid-80s changeup with some fade. Blakely has an imposing presence on the mound, and will attack the zone with confidence.

Conner Williams, RHP, 2024, West Forsyth
Standing a highly-projectable 6-foot-5, 190-pounds with an efficient, compact arm stroke, Williams put together a really strong outing at GDC. Healthy mix of a strong three-pitch mix that led to double-digit strikeouts over four innings. Fastball lived 88-90 while touching 91 twice with sharp arm-side life. Slider created ugly swing and miss at 77-80 with some depth and late horizontal movement. Changeup feel was present in the low-80s with good tunneling characteristics and late fade. Poise on the mound stood out for Williams and could be a stepping stone to a big spring for the Georgia commit.

Eston Simpson, RHP, 2025, Jefferson
The 2023 Future Games most valuable pitcher just continues to get better every time we see him. The Clemson commit was an easy 89-91 over foiled innings while touching 92 eight times in the outing with late arm-side run that limits any hard contact. Slider feel continues to improve in the mid-70s with ability to add and subtract sweep at will for swing and miss. Racked up double-digit whiffs on the slide piece alone. Changeup will disappear at the bottom of the zone at 77-80 out of the same fastball tunnel for a strong third pitch. Every bit of 6-foot-7 with advanced body control and smooth mechanics, Simpsons stock will only keep growing this spring if these outings continue.

Jay Abernathy, SS, 2024, North Cobb
A week after the number one player in Georgia’s 2024 class showed an impressive approach with six walks over the weekend, Abernathy continued to show well, but now with the hit and run tools as well. The Tennessee commit shows fast hands leading to plus bat speed and ability to match planes extremely well. Does a great job doing consistent damage on elevated fastballs, which is an advanced trait for prep bats. Flashed multiple 60+ run times beating out balls down the line, and even more in the tank as a present plus runner.

Landon Eubanks, INF, 2025, Carrollton
The uncommitted junior outfielder flashed a strong hit tool throughout the weekend for the Trojans. Good balance and hands really work throughout the zone. Showed ability to spray balls in a line-drive, all-fields approach from the left-side. Some projection remaining in the frame at 6-foot-0, 160-pounds with position flexibility as well.

Tyler Fallmann, 2025, RHP, Walker
Uncommitted. High waisted 5-11 170lb frame with present athleticism and room for added strength. Shorter arm circle with a ¾ slot. Quick and efficient path. Somewhat explosive with the lower half at times. Like the delivery. 4SFB was 84-87 T88, heavy with some sink, ran in on hands often to RHH, inducing s/m and several ground balls. 2SFB was 77-80 with more HZB to provide a different look for hitters. Good shape on slurve-like SL at 70-73 with downer action, still finding feel for sharp pitch but a chance to be abv avg down the line. Nice arm.

Banks Hickman, 2024, LHP, Dawson County
Uncommitted. Solid 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame with some strength. Went all 7 IP, allowing 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB to go along with 15 Ks in appearance Friday night. Lots of swing & miss the whole night with both pitches in arsenal, kept hitters off balance with tough angle out of the hand and good extension. Solid mechanics and can hold more velo down the line. FB was 83-87 and played up with several s/m at top or above zone. Slurve-like BB sat in same tunnel as FB at 75-77 and was not easy to pick up. Flashed a CH at 70-72. Nice arm.

Julian Horner, 2024, OF, Dawson County
Georgia Highlands commit. Athletic 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame with explosiveness in the lower half and good strength throughout. Loose and easy swing with good barrel tip at launch position, rubber band effect with stretch of the hands as he plants and does a nice job limiting movements to control barrel on an outer half pitch location. Quick hands fire through the zone on a flat path and can get the ball to launch. Going to be an intriguing follow at the Juco ranks next spring.

Bryson Bizzell, 2025, RHP, Norcross
Uncommitted. Long 6-foot-2 with lean strength and some good arm speed. Short swing to a tough OTT slot, deceptive release paired with pitch shape will miss bats consistently. Good carry on FB (84-86) generates s/m at top of zone and shows control for pitch. Nice arm here, one to keep an eye on as he continues to fill out and add on more muscle.

Brady Holbrook, 2025, OF, North Forsyth
Belmont commit. Strong 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame with easy movements. Juice in the swing with a short & quick turn of the barrel thru the zone. Good barrel lag with plate coverage coupled with quality lower half direction helps him get on time to any location. Considerable force generated from strong upper half with more power developing.

Davin Miller, 2024, OF, Locust Grove
Uncommitted. Physicality and proportion in a 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame with good strength in an adjustable lower half. Flat & direct path thru the zone with ability to use both gaps. Developing bat speed but like the force coming from lower half showing good mechanics and will get quicker as strength continues to develop throughout the frame. Atheltic movements on the base paths and in the OF.

Brayden Lawrence, 2024, LHP, Locust Grove
Mercer commit. Large 6-foot-5, 215-pound frame with room to hold more. Clean and easy operation with very low effort and upside if velo trends up. FB comes out very easily at 83-86 from near OTT slot creating a steep angle and good carry for routine s/m on pitch, unique traits. CB was hard at 75-78 with 12/6 shape at its best and would freeze hitters out of similar slot as FB. Good mix, landed each with consistency.

Jake Prince, 2024, IF, North Forsyth
Flagler commit. Athletic at 6-foot, 150-pounds with some twitch, sound movements. Hitterish actions with quick hands and precise barrel direction. Good mechanics creating ideal hand stretch into launch position and attacks with a flat path in the zone and can shoot line drives to any parts of the ballpark. Like the athlete here, definitely one to keep an eye on at the next level as he adds on more strength. Going to hit.
