Jacob Evans, Broken Arrow

The Oklahoma signee is 9-0 with a 1.62 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 65 innings pitched.

Corey Hassel, Stillwater

The Oklahoma State signee is one of the top hitters in the state, and he pitched the Pioneers into the state tournament last week.

Colt Pickens, Yukon

The OU signee hit .410 with 32 RBIs last year as a junior and anchors the Millers' defense at shortstop.

Jordan Watson, Edmond Santa Fe

Overshadowed at times by Ty Hensley, Watson has opened plenty of eyes himself this season and enters having back-to-back no hitters.

Josh Whisler, Owasso

The senior catcher is hitting .425 with 6 home runs and 42 RBIs for the 30-4 Rams.


Landry Chappell, Guthrie

The three-sport standout is again one of 5A's top offensive forced after hitting .478 with 55 RBIs as a junior.

Taylor Hawkins, Carl Albert

Hawkins has 27 home runs and 80 RBIs for the top-ranked team in the class.

Isaac Hellbusch, Deer Creek

The Arkansas signee was expected to be one of the top arms in the state before a preseason injury cut his season short. But Hellbusch came back recently and, though he's not pitching, is hitting No. 3 for the Antlers.
