Jake Fults SS / OF / Dallas Jesuit, TX / 2025

Fults easily challenged for having the best overall results of any player at the event, and capped off his weekend with a three-hit performance on the final day. A 6-foot, 155-pounder with a lean, athletic frame (6.99 runner) that projects for more strength, Fults’ crisp movements and attention to detail on defense stood out as advanced for the class, and he confidently made plays at shortstop with the look of a player that will stick on the dirt long-term. At the plate, a handsier, late-trigger deeper down and back works in sync with a leg kick that allows him to build momentum through impact while covering the plate with present line drive strength. Fults tracked well in game, and presented the look of a gamer whose tools are boosted by competition. Perhaps even more intriguing, the right-hander hopped on the mound to showcase some of the highest upside at the event, working 84-86 with 2300+ rpm that included some ride and run in a more polished look. His quick arm mirrored that of a shortstop with easy athleticism that saw him show off a firmer, 77-79 slider that hinted at a bigger jump in the future. He also flashed feel for a faded 79 mph changeup. Overall, it was a highly impressive look at a player that is sure to be one of the closest follows in the Lone Star State for 2025.
