    Catcher Alerick Soularie- Atascocita High School

    Here is a young man that was the starting catcher for Atascocita High School and is also playing for Ray Deleon of the Houston Banditos.

    Very impressive for this young man not only to be on Varsity but starting behind the plate for his high school team.

    This young man has a great knowledge and feel for the game as a Freshman. He has a very High Ceiling and Deleon called him a Stud.

    RHP/SS D'Mond LaFond Cuero High School-Committed to Rice

    This young man had a big year this past season at Cuero High School, Played on Varsity for Football and Baseball. Have heard that the Coaches at Curero will revamp their offense for D'Mond.

    It will be interesting to watch over the next 2-3 years which sport D'Mond will favor, Baseball? Football?

    D'Mond is currently playing for the Austin Banditos this summer and this is where I have seen him play. He pitches and plays SS for his summer team.

    RHP Devin Fontenot 6-0 145 The Woodlands High School

    Devin Fontenot is a young man that is coming into his own. When you have a player that is able to make Varsity as a Freshman, that is impressive. But when that Freshman makes a Ron Eastman led Woodlands High School baseball team.. That should open up some eyes.

    Fontenot also plays for Micah McAdams of the Mizuno Houston Select, I was able to catch up with Coach McAdams and this is what he had to say about Fontenot;

    OF Tristen Lutz 6-2 210 Arlington Martin High School Commits to Texas on August the 3rd 2015

    Notable: In the long and distinguished coaching career of Martin coach Curt Culbertson, freshmen rarely get the chance to make an impact on the varsity. Lutz is only the second freshman since Culbertson’s been at Martin (2003) to break into the starting lineup and stay there through district. Teammate and rising senior Josh Watson is the other.
    Did you know? A 6-3, 215-pound 15-year-old, Lutz played in right field and batted fifth in Martin’s lineup. The 3-5A freshman of the year, Lutz hit .341, with 13 extra-base hits (including four home runs) and 31 RBIs.



    Brian Sakowski had this to say about Lutz;


    http://academyselect.org/welcome-home/staff/

    Had the opportunity to scout the Academy Select Sun Devils. They have some high quality prospects, including Lutz.

    OF/RHP Ronald Washington 6-0 202 Dulles High School-Committed to Texas

    An SEC coach sat with the PG scouts during Washington's batting practice and said shaking his head "I've never seen a freshman hit like that in my baseball life....." Washington's raw power is incredible for his age and he ran a 6.67 sixty to highlight how good an athlete he is as well.


    Pretty High Praise...

    Earlier today, Ronald Washington pulled the trigger and committed to Texas.

    LHP Thomas Burbank from Monsignor Kelly High School was in town last week at the Pitching Camp where he told me that his focus was to attend the University of Texas. Well today that dream comes true.



    Burbank is rated as the #1 rank LHP in the State of Texas, #10 Nationally. This is a young man that has really worked hard in the last year to attain his goal.

    He also, plays for Ray Deleon and the Houston Banditos.

    This thread hasn't been used in a while. With O'Sullivan being the odds-on favorite to win the job, I'm super excited about how he will fill out these next few classes. Any chance Texas could poach a player late i.e. Mark Payton?
     
  26. djbfootball

    djbfootball Member Who Talks (A Lot!)

    If he comes in, he job is too keep all of the players that will be here in August, Mason Thompson, Kyle Muller, David Hamilton, Connor Capel, Blair Henley, Austin McNicholas, Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Roliard...

    I know promises were made to O'Sullivan by Foley, but that was before he announced his resignation.

    Since Florida has been out of the CWS picture since earlier this week, have you heard anything with regard to O'Sullivan's interest in coming to Texas? Or, Tadlock to Texas?

    Realized I am really late to this game but very close with the Gauntt family. Turner's a great kid.
