Playoffs: Round 1

Cole Carr, RHP/3B, Mary Persons, 2025
Uncommitted. Carr got the start on the mound in game 1 of the state playoffs. He has a strong, athletic frame that is imposing on the mound. The actions are clean and efficient with an athletic arm slot. He filled up the zone with a fastball in the low to mid 80’s. It’s low effort, so seems to be more in the tank down the mound. He had the ability to throw 3 pitches for strikes with feel for spin. Game 2 he moved over the 3B and set the tone at the plate with a big double to get the scoring started for Mary Persons. Carr will be a 2 way prospect to follow into the summer and if he is not committed by the spring, into his senior year.

William Homan, RHP, 2024, Harrison
Georgia Highlands Commit. Strong 5 inning outing vs a good Carrollton lineup. Homan had hitters guessing all game with his strong mix of the FB and BB. Homan showed a FB up to 87 with good life. Homan had good control both to the inside and outside parts of the plate. Homan got down the mound well staying in his lower half and kept his upper and lower half in sync in his delivery. Homan will be a good addition to the staff at Georgia highlands.

John Stuetzer, SS, 2025, Pope
There's not much more to say about the former Future Gamer and Florida State commit, but Stuetzer continues to impact the game in multiple ways in every look. Steutzer has incorporated a more upright stance at the plate this spring allowing the shortstop to create better separation to let barrel stay in-zone forever where his barrel accuracy and plus bat speed have shown extremely well. The pull-side power potential could be plus as well as present plus speed that creates havoc on the bases. One of the best power/speed combos in the class, with a real feel to hit as well. Defensively, Stuetzer continues to make huge strides as a potential above-average glove on the left side of the infield. An easy mover laterally with great flexibility to bend and attack with confidence. Present arm strength from multiple angles while showing carry across. It may be slightly bullish but there’s five-tool potential with Stuetzer and stock is beginning to soar.
