Semler's Prospects to Follow: 4.8-4.20

Over the course of the season, North Texas Scouting Director, Max Semler, will be out scouting some of the top draft prospects in the Lone Star State. Semler has served as an area scout for four major league teams spanning the last 30 years and now joins the Prep Baseball Texas Staff. Today, we look at some of Semler's reports on the prospects to follow that he has seen so far this season.

High Follow: scout this player. Present tools are there, he can enter pro ball and hold his own. 

Low Follow: some present tools with a lot of projection or with college players limited upside. This does not mean this player is not a prospect, not a priority look to start the year. 

Pocket Follow: no carrying tool presently to go out and play professionally or at a Major D1 program. But, does things on the baseball field that attract your attention. This type of player needs strength, needs to mature physically or with a pitcher…velocity needs to take a jump. 


Hudson Holt SS / 3B / ROCKWALL H S, TX / 2027

Low Follow

Strengths: Actions showing hand quickness. Athleticism present, moves well solid footwork quickness. Avg arm with carry present, plus arm future. Bat speed

Weaknesses: Must slow the game down on defense during game, tries to do too much. Decent body control

Summation: Mid infielder with good build/frame for adding strength. Defensively has actions with body control. Plenty of arm strength to play on left side of infield. Bat speed present with developing bat strength. Type of ability that should be recruited heavily.
