😷Freshman with nastiest curveball you’ll see. Jackson McKenzie (@jaxmc55) has a ridiculous 12-6 CB that he uses to punch batters out. Fastball sits mid 80’s on the corners while that curveball is 66-67 MPH. Tough to see out of his hand with repeatable delivery/arm slot. Big time strike thrower with a high ceiling. • 6-2, 180 lbs. • @usaprimebaseball • Pace (FL) 2023 • @hailstatebb commit #HailState #DudeAlert
Where we droppin’ boys?
😯 Easier or harder than it looks!? @nathan_maddux with the sweet full-extension diving catch in center! #FiveToolTopPlay
🧐Can you handle this environment? Kaden Calkins (@kaden.calkins) showed off his jumps from the last few months while at @stixbaseballtx Scout Day. Started off the summer at 86 MPH in May and now tops at 90 MPH. Has pitched on some big stages with some really good stuff. Recently committed to McLennan Community College in Waco, TX. Works a hard slider and change up in low 80s to go alongside his fastball. Dude also just loves to pitch and you can tell! • 6-5, 190 lbs. • Southlake Carroll (TX) 2020 • McLennan commit #DudeAlert
😤Talk about a rough day at the office... This blue is a champ. You ever have umps like this?
🚪Opening doors every game. Nick Chalman (@chal.lman) is a dude on the rise who’s got our attention. Looks the part making hard contact at the plate and is super smooth in the infield. Has the hit tool and fielding tool on lock. Solid arm while power is about to come — expect some jumps. • 5-11, 165 lbs. • MIF • Action Baseball • Gateway Prep (TX) 2020 #uncommitted #DudeAlert @fivetooltexas
🐐Dude’s the goat out here. Dillon Lester (@dillonlester7) dropped not one, but two back-to-back WOOD BAT bombs at the @fivetooltexas Houston Fall Classic. Playing with @hunterpencebaseball Cunningham 2022, he’s still just a freshman. • C • Switch-hitter • Deer Park (TX) 2023 • @ou_baseball commit #Boomer #BoomerSooner #DudeAlert #FiveToolPower

👟Hard 90’s just hits different. @fivetooltexas
📝Catchers take notes. Jalen Webster (@jalen__webster) does all the right things behind the plate. Sound defensively with a quick transfer and an accurate arm. Sets up well making an easy target for pitchers, solid framing picking up strike calls, blocks everything in the dirt, and plays with confidence. Good bat for the next level, the type dude you want on your team. • @dallaspatriotsbaseball • 6-1, 190 lbs. • Bishop Lynch (TX) 2020 #uncommitted #DudeAlert • @fivetooltexas DFW Fall Classic
💣On a scale of 1 to @maxmuncy, rate this bat flip. @beckerr_ at the @fivetooltexas Houston Fall Classic. • @adidasbaseballusa • Jersey Village (TX) 2020 @ricebsb commit #DudeAlert #FiveToolPower
😅Oh boy. Hate to see it, but love to see that.
🤷♂️They only had 8 fielders so he said screw it & balled out. Michael Watson (@michael_watson10) is a big time competitor and proved it tonight at the @fivetooltexas DFW Fall Classic. The @stixbaseballtx LHP struck out 10 in 5 IP with 2 hits and no runs allowed as they played with just two outfielders. Dude has continued to shove this fall with a fastball topping out at 86 MPH. Has nasty offspeed stuff with a 77-78 MPH cutter, 66-67 MPH curveball and 73 MPH change up. 📚 High academic too... Get. On. Him. Now! • 6-1, 165 lbs. • Glen Rose (TX) 2020 #uncommitted #DudeAlert
🃏The dude straight deals. Kade Anderson (@kadeanderson3) has a quiet confidence about him that’s unparalleled at his age. The @usaprimebaseball National 15U LHP has nasty stuff running his fastball up to 87 MPH with a 72 MPH hook. Good frame and clean arm, this dude can go! • @fivetooltexas DFW Fall Classic • 6-0, 160 lbs. • St. Paul’s (LA) 2023 @lsubaseball commit #GeauxTigers #DudeAlert
💥Get them NOW before they blow up. Tyler Abrego (@_tylerabrego_) and Drew Messick are literally about to explode with college offers after a strong showing at 2019 Fall @stixbaseballtx Scout Day. Good looking prospects, both are upper 80’s across the diamond with exit velos that can get to 90 MPH. Still growing and developing, look for them to have big spring seasons — serious projectable tools that translate. • Abrego: 5-11, 175 lbs. / SS / Argyle (TX) 2021 #uncommitted • Messick: 6-2, 190 lbs. / 3B / Jesuit (TX) 2021 #uncommitted • #DudeAlert #FiveToolFielding #FiveToolArm #FiveToolHitting • @fivetooltexas
