Preseason All-State Spotlight: Jackson Toney

Patrick Johnson
North Carolina Assistant Scouting Director

Each year the month of February in North Carolina is a big one for baseball players.  With the high school spring season coming, and the off-period of November and December, players have had some time to work on their strengths and improve their weaknesses.  They have been in the weight room and in the cages.  As we enter February, Prep Baseball begins its work to continue to identify and update our notes on prospects in North Carolina. 

The Preseason All-State events have become spotlight events in the state.  This year there are 3 opportunities for some of the best players in the state to show-off their off-season gains, while working out with other top talents.  Prep Baseball will be in Greenville, NC on February 3rd, Maiden, NC on February 4th, and Kernersville, NC on February 10th.  The Prep Baseball scouting staff is expecting to see 250 of the top players in North Carolina across these three events.

Below we profile a player that is scheduled to attend a Preseason All-State event.

Preseason All-State Spotlight: Jackson Toney

Jackson Toney RHP / 1B / Burns, NC / 2025

Toney is the 33rd ranked RHP in the 2025 class out of Burns HS with a ton of upside. Right now we have his fastball at 85 mph to go along with his commanded off speed pitches but with his 6-foot-3, 195lb frame I expect Toney to have increased his strength over the winter and show an increase in velo this spring. Jackson has shown high pitchability throwing well in big games like the 2023 16U National Championship. The polished mechanics, pitchability, and big frame make Toney someone we are eager to see at the preseason event coming up in Maiden and see what he does on the mound this spring for Burns HS.
