RECAP | South Louisiana Winter Combine

RECAP | South Louisiana Winter Combine
January 30, 2023

We were in attendance at Live Oak HS  for our Annual Louisiana Winter Combine this month. Our staff was impressed with the talent across the board that showed up from 2023-2027 grad classes. Here are some notes on last weekend standouts.

Logan Coley (2023 | Live Oak HS, LA) has been trending upward on all metrics over the last year as he continues to put on size and strength. This hard working corner infielder had a max Exit Velocity (EV) of 98mph via rapsodo during live batting practice. Coley can can move well for a corner guy with a 6.95 – 7.03 60 yard dash that improves each event. 79-80mph arm across the infield with good actions and good footwork.

 Zayne Landry (2024 | Silliman Institue, MS) had a great day showcasing many tools during the South LA Combine. Landry started the day running a 6.70 60 yard dash time leading the way for the day before showing smooth actions in the infield with quick hands and great carry on the throw. 2024 showcase standout was 92.2mph during live BP on the rapsodo device with a gap to gap approach and a MAX distance of 338ft. A well balanced player and great follow.

Bryce Wilson (2025 | Chalmette High, LA) checked all boxes as a pitcher. Wilson was one of the biggest standouts once he hit the mound. Bryce will be a top 2025 arm to follow over the next couple years. Only 80-82mph right now but velocity will come. 145lbs long arms and tall frame. Above average movement on FB and Off-speed pitches. Slider is a true out pitch with strong bite. (74mph CH, 68mph SL, 70mph CB). Rapsodo numbers attached below. 100% strike rate.

John David Hidalgo (2025 | Catholic High New Iberia, LA) on our 2025 follow list showed a strong presence at the plate. 90+mph hard it average Exit Velocity with a MAX EV of 95.2mph via rapsoso. Short quick swing with pull side power. 7.0-7.1 runner. 79-80mph arm across the diamond. View some swings from this past weekend.

Kingston Johnson (2027 | Live Oak HS, LA) Athletic and full of potential only a 2027 grad but was in the Top 5 Leaderboard in all categories amongst 2023-2026 grads. 95mph Exit Velocity, 6.80 60 yard dash, 76mph OF. An athlete that will develop more and more each year. Raw swing. Look forward watching Kingston for many years on the diamond.

Connor Micheu (2026 | Southeastern Louisiana University) Micheu showed why he is committed as a 2026. Solid LHH showed some pull side pop. Ton of upside as a freshman.

Edward Henriquez (2025 | Catholic, LA) solid middle infielder with a good bat. Smooth defender with good feet and hands. Joins a plethora of talented MIF in the 2025 class. 87.3mph Exit Velocity in Live BP. Consistent line drive approach.

Jacob Galloway (2024 | Live Oak HS, LA) Top velocity on the day up 86.2mph on Rapsodo with a 2128 AVG Spin Rate on the FB. 79mph Slider 78mph Chang-up. As Galloway’s velocity jumped over the last year he is one to keep an eye on in 2023.
