Tennessee Preseason All State: Quick Hits, Upperclass Outfielders

Hunter Martin
TN Scouting Director


GALLATIN, TN - The Tennessee Preseason All-State was held on Saturday, February 10th at Liberty Creek HS in Gallatin, TN. This event was an invite-only event that consisted of players from the 2024-2027 classes from Volunteer state. Players went through an extended pro-style workout that included batting practice using Trackman, ran the 60-yard dash using Swift Performance, and much more. Pitchers were able to get numbers and metrics on TrackMan. There were some players who showed up and continued to build off of prior performances, but there were also some new names who jumped onto our radar with a strong showing at the event.

Continuing our post-event coverage for this event, we take a look at some of the standouts and top performers from the event.

Ayden Jacobs RHP / OF / Collierville , TN / 2025

Long-limbed and high-waisted frame, Jacobs got on my scene this summer on the bump but has real two-way upside as the athletic ability is clearly present. He has since put on good weight coming in at 6 foot 2 and 190 pounds, about 15-20 pounds heavier from this summer. Smooth running actions for a time of 7.17 (sixty) with faster times to come. Carries himself with a lot of confidence and is consistent in his approach. Will be a big contributor for a stacked Collierville HS team this year looking to make it back to the state tournament. Loud rounds during BP with almost zero wasted effort in a compact right-handed swing. A quick, heel-turn trigger allows for Jacobs to transfer weight well with present bat speed into a linear, line-drive bat path that peppers pull-side gap. There’s heaviness in the barrel and strength in the frame that impacts the ball consistently and finished BP with an average EV of 91.7 with a max EV of 98 mph. Arm strength is already present (92) with an over the top angle that offers plenty of carry over long distances. 

Rylan Moses OF / Goodpasture Christian , TN / 2025

One of my favorite all-around players in the ‘25 class. Moses is probably a guy that I missed on coming to PBR Future Games this past summer. He has consistently gotten better and better every time that I have seen him. Not only that, but he continues to get bigger and stronger. Clocked his fastest sixty this past fall at 6.78 seconds at our PBR TN Scout Day. Came in a little slower this time around at PAS but the bat continues to get hotter. There is some steepness to his swing but he does a great job of seeing the ball deep and getting the barrel out in front. He creates good separation that utilizes a short leg kick with a strong lead leg that he fired into the ground with authority. Present ability to manipulate the barrel, both creating loft to the pull-side and firing line-drives into both gaps. Heavy barrels throughout the round with an average exit velocity of 88.3 while topping 97 max. Very hitterish actions overall at the plate for Moses. An athletic mover in the outfield with above average range and ability to move to make the tough play. Present arm strength, up to 90 mph, that plays with on-target throws. The profile continues to develop into a very well-rounded outfielder that has a chance to stick in centerfield at the next level, and if Saturday was any indication, could be in-store for a big spring/summer where he plays for a consistently talented team in Goodpasture.  

Easton Jones OF / RHP / Jackson Christian , TN / 2025

Participating in his first Prep Baseball showcase, Easton came into the event with not much name recognition from my side. However, he left a permanent impression on me with his overall day and the overall confidence that exudes him. The 5 foot 10 and and 185 pound ‘25 prospect comes in really athletic with an already well built that should continue to fill out. 1.61 off the line for a 10 yd split that translated into longer strides for a 6.77 sixty and one that I believe can be faster with some minor technique refinements. Already presents broad shoulders and a compact frame that shows feel for handling the stick. Active actions at the plate, Jones syncs his upper and lower halves extremely well with great ability to create separation in a quick-twitch, toe-tap trigger that keeps him deep in his back hip. Explodes with average bat speed (Max 72) and it’s easy to believe that there is already more in there. Showed barrel feel that creates hard contact with ease. It’s already a quality hit/power combo that produced a max of 93 mph EV. A centerfield type of profile through and through defensively with effortless actions with the glove. Moves laterally with above-average range and great balance. Plus accuracy from an over the top arm angle that’s backed by present arm strength (89). He's a very athletic 5 foot 10, 185-pound makeup that still holds plenty of projection, and could take the profile to an even higher level as he plays against tougher competition. 

Logan Davidson 3B / OF / Henry County, TN / 2025

At 5 foot 9 and 210 pounds, Davidson comes in pretty solidly built with present muscle in the lower half. Not a burner, but not slow either for his frame, one that could continue to slim out and become more refined. Bat speed is there (Max 75) with a consistent approach during his round that sat pretty evenly between flyball, line-drive and ground ball. He does a consistently good job of taking the barrel with the baseball with an easy lever action that completes his swing with a 1 arm finish. Showed some raw power (Max 94 EV) and continues to raise his power profile. Decent moving feet and stays balanced moving laterally with already present average arm strength (84) that should continue to gain velocity as he slims out. 

Eli Cross OF / OF / Davidson Academy , TN / 2025

Uncommitted junior that offers plenty of more projection and had a standout Saturday at Liberty Creek. Currently on the smaller stature side at 5 foot 6, but already has a present build on the muscular side at 165 pounds. Good overall athleticism is clearly present with a 1.62 10 yd split that finished at 6.85 second sixty. If he can continue to gain some height, that time should trim down exponentially. Showed strong feel for being able to rotate (26 G’s of Acceleration) into his swing with a direct-on line bat path that finishes with some uphill trajectory that created easy loft for Cross with some power present (Max 90 EV). This is a kid that physically isn’t done developing. Clean and coordinated actions defensively with an easy arm action. 

William Bobo OF / RHP / Shelbyville Central, TN / 2025

High-waisted athlete that presents a slim profile with plenty of room to fill out at 5 foot 10 and 155 pounds. 6.83 runner in the sixty with long strides that get faster as he gets moving. Has some rawness to his game still but is not a finished product by any means and still holds plenty of upside. Bat path is pretty linear with a line-drive approach that looks to get the body moving out of the box. Defensively sound with quick moving lower levers that he is able to keep momentum going into his gather. Quick release out of hand with already present arm strength (89 mph) with carry for direct low liner throws. Should continue to get better will have a chance for a big spring at Shelbyville Central.
