The 9th Annual Invitation-Only event will feature the best identified 2026-2027 prospects from across the PBR Coverage Area in a five-day event at LakePoint Sports in Emerson, GA. Participants will be given the unique opportunity of competing against other top-level players while representing their respective state in a high-level atmosphere.

This event will run in conjunction with the PBR Future Games. The Future Games features the top uncommitted players in the Class of 2024 and 2025 from across the Prep Baseball Report’s 40+ state coverage area. It is one of the most highly recruited events of the summer and attracts more than 300 college coaches from across the country each year.

This one-of-a-kind event will include individual workouts and a 4-game guarantee with single elimination bracket play to determine a champion in each age group.

We’ll recap the action from the Missouri squads throughout the week and highlight some players that, on a day-to-day basis, impress our scouts during the gameplay portion of this tournament. Below you’ll find a handful of 2026 and 2027 prospects that popped on day two. 

DAY TWO TAKEAWAYS

+ OF Stone Marion (North Point, 2026) continues to show as one of the top prospects across our three Missouri Junior Future Games squads. Marion recorded a hit in a tie with Team Florida, working on the barrel to the opposite field as well. He floats around the outfield with confidence and a certain presence to him on defense, profiling as an asset there in the long run.

+ INF Carson Twellman (Troy, 2026) delivered a clutch double to right field in this contest and also drew the game-tying walk to cap off an impactful offensive performance for Team Missouri on the second day. Twellman, who’s seen time at shortstop throughout the week, reached a peak exit velocity of 88.5 mph on Tuesday’s workout.

+ Arguably the top offensive prospect thus far, C Logan Studer (St. Louis University, 2026) was on the barrel with authority to both fields in this look. A strong, sturdy backstop, Studer’s knack for hard contact is advanced for his age and the ease in which he’s generated said juice is impressive as well. He’s a quality defender behind the plate, chesting up balls and consistently working.

+ 1B Cooper Montgomery (St. Dominic, 2026) delivered a key RBI hit late in the game that helped avoid a loss. Montgomery, who's a 5-foot-10, 170-pound left-handed hitter, has flashed advanced feel for the zone and a knack for the barrel throughout the weekend.

+ After popping on the mound on the first day, OF Rocco Marriott (Platte County, 2026) showcased his offensive capabilities in Team Missouri’s second game. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound incoming freshman blasted a deep double to center field in a key moment, displaying the inherent bat strength he showed at Tuesday’s workout. There, Marriott ran a 7.06 60-yard dash and squared his hardest ball up at 91.1 mph.

+ INF Jaymeson Forest (Gateway Legacy Christian Academy, 2026) has a high ceiling at the plate attached to a physically advanced 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame. A left-handed hitter, Forest juiced a hard line drive the other way in his final at-bat for his first hit of the tournament. Forest also clutched up defensively at third base, making a handful of key plays that kept the opposition off the board.

+ LHP Caden Kern (McCracken County, 2026; KY) limited hard contact and induced weak ground balls throughout his start on Friday. The 5-foot-9 southpaw used a three-pitch mix to keep hitters off balance, twirling five strong innings in his start.

+ OF/LHP Austin Jones (Lindbergh, 2026) went 2-for-2 at the plate with a double and an RBI for the other Team Missouri squad on Friday. Jones also added three punchouts on the mound over an inning and two-thirds.

+ Three players showed well for the Missouri 13U team: 1B/RHP Brandon Ott (DeSmet Jesuit, 2027), C Luke McAtee (2027), and INF Cole Chambers (2027).
