J. Hill is a very talented. I hope the injury he suffered during football season does not affect his future in baseball. If healthy, I would expect him to pass on his commitment to LSU and enter into the MLB Draft.
I also saw the Beasley kid last year as well. I only got to see him pitch an inning or two before playing some 3rd base in the next game. He has a lively arm and could swing the bat a little as well.
I have not gotten the opportunity to watch K. Hill but I would like to this season. I've heard great things about him as well.
As far as the young kid from Greenbrier, I don't know very much about him but I'm not doubting his ability. On a side note, is it just me or does it seem like Greenbrier gets a top tier player every year? Very quality program they have over there.

As far as Northeast Arkansas goes, PJ Hilson will have the region locked down as its best player. Signed to play with Alabama as an OF but wouldn't surprise me if he forgoes that and heads straight to playing ball for $$$. Thats not any inside info on his personal preference or anything, just a nod to how good this kid actually is and can be. For a smaller guy, he has tremendous power at the plate and outstanding arm strength. I believe he was hitting 94 on the mound this summer and something like 97 from RF. He's got sprinter speed to go along with the power. Kid is a real player that not many people around the state know about for some reason.

PJ is a great kid with a lot of speed and pop at the bat.  He can pitch well too but I feel his best will be playing the field and hitting.  Both his brothers are speedsters and his mother was as well. Great kid and great family.  I am happy for him playing with Alabama or skipping and going the next level if possible.   Very polite and fun to be around.  I am hoping this year PJ and ZRN go at it again in high school ball.  It was good last year and expect another good match this year if they meet.  They go to different schools but are good friends and even hit together at times.  I am ready to see some good ball but sure hate cold baseball.

The first 2018 drafted from the State of AR will be Jaden Hill (Ashdown).  He hit 95 at a PG event this summer and played in the Under Armor All American Game at Wrigley Field.  Scouts loves his size and physical ability.  He is not a polished pitcher yet.  Potential is the key word for him.

Kaleb Hill (2018 Watson Chapel) is more polished.  He will also get drafted but word is he really wants to go to Ole Miss.

PJ Hilson (2018 Nettleton) blew up late this summer.  He missed most of his junior year with an injury and did not get a lot of exposure with his summer team.  I agree that he likely signs in the draft as well.

Blake Adams (2019 Har-Ber) is one of the top RHP nationally and will get a lot of attention this summer.

Cayden Wallace (2020 Greenbrier) is one of the top hitters in the country and worth the price of admission.

There are numerous AR high school players committed to P5 schools.  For those interested, PBR is doing a top 30 Prospects list during the month of December.  There are/will be some good names on there from all regions of the state and all grade levels.

Great info on 2021s, I need to dig on Cole Manning, Cooper Eirie. I have seen Jumper, Bentley and heard lots of positive thoughts on French and Chester, Ledbetter and Alridge are the real deal,

Always fun to watch classes transform, as guys physically mature and show who really wants to work, I have had guys in every class move from 50+ to top 10, and when I look at notes when they were 50+ I agree, early reports look similar to 2018 class.

Blake Adams and Cayden Wallace are young and have gotten a lot of respect nationally.  What are your thoughts on how those guys project at the next level?  Anybody else scouts love?

Adams, and Wallace are super stars on the Nation scene both being Top 50 players, In 2019 nationally the stock of C Cason Tollett and LHP Zach Morris are on the rise. Morris was selected for the underclass area code games and Tollett has selected to the Perfect Game underclass games.

Locally in 2019 Pitchers, Zane Ryne Neves (Jonesboro) , Josh Albatt (Vilonia) , and Landon McAllister (Har-ber) are all names to know. Position players Peyton Holt( Greenwood) Brandon Ulmer (Booneville) John Austin Hoskyns (Stuttgart) Alex Cauley (NLR) Ethan Fowler (Catholic)

2020 is a deep group; Nationally so far it has been Wallace, and the others are secondary guys but they have 6 others committed in the SEC/Big12 and some promising players who are uncommitted Marcus Brown (Kentucky) Tyler Cacciotorri (Arkansas) Clayton Gray (Arkansas) Houston King (Kentucky) Luke Pectol (Kentucky) Matthew Watson (Oklahoma)

Josh is a very good player.  Didn't pitch much last year but is expected to contribute much more this year.  Solid 3rd baseman too.  Overall great player and great kid.  Amazing story about his dad, was diagnosed with late stage cancer, thru prayer and alternative medicine, is in remission now.

Btw, thanks for the information on these players.

Lots of competition but a great program and great university.  He will compete for playing time and help his UofA future team at some point.  Now he can just work hard and help his JHS team the best he can.

At the 2A level TJ Bale from Parkers Chapel is very good.

Adams, and Wallace are super stars on the Nation scene both being Top 50 players, In 2019 nationally the stock of C Cason Tollett and LHP Zach Morris are on the rise. Morris was selected for the underclass area code games and Tollett has selected to the Perfect Game underclass games.

Locally in 2019 Pitchers, Zane Ryne Neves (Jonesboro) , Josh Albatt (Vilonia) , and Landon McAllister (Har-ber) are all names to know. Position players Peyton Holt( Greenwood) Brandon Ulmer (Booneville) John Austin Hoskyns (Stuttgart) Alex Cauley (NLR) Ethan Fowler (Catholic)

2020 is a deep group; Nationally so far it has been Wallace, and the others are secondary guys but they have 6 others committed in the SEC/Big12 and some promising players who are uncommitted Marcus Brown (Kentucky) Tyler Cacciotorri (Arkansas) Clayton Gray (Arkansas) Houston King (Kentucky) Luke Pectol (Kentucky) Matthew Watson (Oklahoma)

Great insight.  I have a feeling there will be a few more show up on the radar by season's end.  BTW, who is gonna be taking over the scouting director spot at PBR?

There always are each year.  I also wonder who will do the PBR scouting.  That is a very good question.

What about this kid from 1A?  I believe his name is Wilson? Wilkins? or maybe Williams? And I know he plays for a 1A school in North Arkansas.  I believe from either Viola or Calico Rock?

What happened to Bottoms?

He left PBR and I believe his last day was Sunday or Monday.  The only thing I hear is he was getting pressed by people.  Much like a coach, you just can't please them all.  But again I am only repeating what I heard.  But I do believe that was a part of it.

Zac Bottoms attended 5-7 high school baseball games a week all over the State.  He covered AR high school baseball like nobody I can remember.  I wish Zac the best in whatever he does next.

I have heard that the next PBR scout for AR will be Dave Jorn.....yes that Dave Jorn.  I can't confirm if that is true or not but it is an interesting choice.  He brings a reputable background and experience.

It is a very sad situation from what I hear.  Zac was good for AR high school baseball.

I did not know much about him but do hear good things.  For whatever reason I too wish him the best moving forward.

Will Wilson probably.  Pretty good LHP.  He'll play college ball somewhere if he stays healthy.  I know a couple years ago he had an arm issue, but I think he's back to 100%.  He could stand to put on some weight, but when he has his good stuff he's pretty filthy.
