Last Wednesday, our staff released the rankings of the top 50 junior college prospects in the state of Texas for the 2019-2020 season. This week we continue our junior college coverage, breaking down the top prospects with scout notes and video.

Below is a rundown of the top junior college prospects in the state, compiled by our PBR boots-on-the-ground staff that scoured the state with the commitment to providing the most credible and reliable information in amateur baseball. Rankings are based on both how prospects have performed in previous spring and summer seasons and what have seen this fall.  
  1. Luke Little, Soph, LHP, San Jacinto
    South Carolina commit.  Imposing 6-foot-7 left handed pitcher fastball that sits 96-98 mph, and a curveball with depth that is a change of speeds. Has a good athletic tempo to his delivery through hand break, slightly stabs his arm behind before driving down the mound violently. There are some moving parts and long limbs for him to sync up in the delivery, but he creates a tough at bat for anyone in the box. Little has an extremely high ceiling and is starting to tap into his potential.

  2. Connor Phillips Fr. RHP, McLennan
    6-foot-2 athletic RHP that has ran his fastball up to 97 this fall as well as show he can spin a power slider/ cutter at 84-86 mph. Pitches with an athletic tempo in his delivery, remains very upright through his leg lift, then throws his glove at you with a  high front side creating some deception and a tough angle on his fastball. The breaking ball is firm and has tight spin with late action to it.
