Preseason All-State Roster Preview: Part Five

Scott Hood
Oklahoma State Director

As we get prepared for our premiere event of the year in the Preseason All-State, we start the process by breaking down each individual attendee with notes on videos their game.  The Preseason All-State attracts some of the top talent from all across the state creating platforms and driving eye-balls for recruiters and scouts at the next level to help guide them throughout the spring recruiting.  This year's event will take place once again at Oral Roberts University of February 11th featuring a pro-style workout with data collected by our tech partners, social media coverage, and updated video for the profile.  

There are still currently spots available but filling up quickly.  Click HERE to secure your spot today

Jackson Harris SS / RHP / Dale, OK / 2026

Harris has already gotten significant experience in his high school career as an everyday starter for State Tournament representive Stillwater as a Freshman and now switching over to Dale and helping them reach the Fall State Tournament.  Harris has athletic actions both in the infield as well as at the plate that should continue to improve as he adds strength.  Mechanically, the swing is sound with quick hands through the zone and should see his metrics take a rather large jump since the last time we collected data.

Titus Heeley C / 1B / Broken Arrow, OK / 2025

Heeley showed a strong overall skill set at last year's Preseason All-State and will look to improve his metrics at next week's event.  Heeley has a projectable build with plenty of room to keep adding strength which should allow him to see big jumps in hand strength with the bat in his hands.  While our latest catching numbers we have from him might not jump off the page, Heeley showed strong feel for handling the position with strong glove work and blocking abilities.  Don't be surprised to see big jumps in number next week from him.

Levi Kelly RHP / 3B / Tahlequah , OK / 2025

It's been a few years since we've collected verified data from the 2-way from Tahlequah but have caught some of his action in games over the past Spring and Summer.  Kelly's biggest strength might be his highly competitive nature that shows from the stands on both the mound and in the field.  Kelly has strong command with fastballs working into the mid 80's in the past and has a knack for finding barrels at the plate.  Kelly will look to improve his stock with a strong showing at this year's Preseason All-State.

Brian Justice RHP / SS / Bixby, OK / 2025

Justice checks in as the highest ranked prospect to come to this year's Preseason All-State after bursting onto the scene last spring and summer.  Justice has some of the highest pitchability in the '25 class with excellent command of his upper 80's fastball and recent reports have him reaching that 90 mph mark.  His calling card is ability to spin two breaking balls, each with tight spin and different shapes, as well as showing feel for the changeup.  It isn't all just about his work on the mound however, Justice plays excellent defense up the middle of the diamond and has some strength at contact.  With Justice being our highest ranked player in the '25 class that remains uncommitted, don't be surprised to see a lot of buzz around his name following the event heading into the spring season.


Nate Gregg RHP / OF / Union, OK / 2025

We last got eyes on Gregg at the 2023 Preseason All-State and he will look to show big jumps from gains throughout the year.  Gregg has a projectable build at 6-foot-2 and a lean 160 pounds, he works the fastball downhill and shows sluvy shape on the upper 60 curveball.  Gregg has proven himself through reports to have a strong work ethic and it wouldn't be surprising to see him make some jumps in the near future.

Riley Lile SS / RHP / Sterling, OK / 2025

Lile was a big standout at the OKC Open this past summer where the 2-way prospect showed some impressive tool on both sides of the ball.  The 6-foot-2 and 185 pounder from Sterling generated exit velos up to 91.7 mph with a knack for finding the barrel.  He showcased a big arm reaching 87 mph from across the diamond that he also uses on the mound where he worked the fastball up to 84 mph.  He also showed tight spin on both a slider and curveball giving him options to try and miss bats.

Will Lundquist OF / SS / Norman North, OK / 2025

Nobody in the state eclipsed Lundquist's speed in 2023 after he posted a blazing 6.38 60 at the Top Prospect Games last June.  Lundquist doesn't just bring game changing speed, he shows a well-put together swing to generate exit velos up to 87.8 mph using quick hands through the zone.  Lundquist shows the ability to play both in the middle of the infield as well as in the outfield where he showed off his speed with excellent range and ground coverage.  There are prospects that are really fast running in a straight line but it doesn't always translate to the baseball diamond. Lundquist does not fall into that camp as he's proven the ability to wreck the game both on the base paths and on defense with his electric run tool.

Declan Murphy 3B / RHP / Carl Albert, OK / 2025

Murphy has done nothing but prove himself at both the state and national level with his sinker/slider combo on the mound as well as ability to produce with the bat.  Murphy works the sinking fastball in the upper 80's with strong command to help get off the barrel.  He pairs the fastball with the sharp slider with feel for spin and shape to produce swing and miss.  Offensively, Murphy has shown the ability to handle the barrel against elite pitching reaching exit velos up to 92.5 mph.  Murphy should be squarely on recruiting radars heading into the spring and even a small jump should open up more doors to the next level.


Kale Johnson C / 3B / Edmond Memorial, OK / 2026

The utility man last attended the Fall Underclass Games this past October where the Bulldog product showed a loose swing that worked balls gap to gap.  He's reached exit velocities up to 87 mph in the past thanks to strong rotation around the core.  Johnson offers up some positional versatility with the ability to both play in the infield as well as work showcase pop times as low as 2.0.  Johnson stands at a projectable 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds that still has plenty of room to continue adding strength.

Cason Hays OF / 3B / Deer Creek, OK / 2027

It's been almost two years since we've seen the freshman prospect out of Deer Creek and he will look to update the profile with bigger numbers at the Preseason All-State.  Hayes looks to have greatly added strength to his 6-foot and 170 pound frame which should play up thanks to a his ability to get more out of his lower half in the swing.  With his size, don't be surprised to see big jumps from him at next week's event.
