Top talent on display at Minority Baseball Prospects High School Showdown
By Kyra Vandiver
This past weekend, LakePoint Sports hosted the Minority Baseball Prospects High School Showdown, an event featuring top recruits such as Mays’ Termarr Johnson, Dutchtown’s Bryce Clavon, and Pace Academy’s R.J. Austin.
The goal of the organization, along with the event that was to put these players in the spotlight, is to provide an opportunity for these players to be seen by scouts and recruiters.
Johnson is the No. 3 player in the nation from the Class of 2022 per Prep Baseball Report. Currently uncommitted, he shared the stage with his teammate Jeremiah Newman, a Georgia State commit.
Johnson is an incredible shortstop and is both strong and quick. He has a left-handed swing, with a solid arm. His performance this weekend stood out and will be a guy to keep your eyes on.
No. 3️⃣ ranked player in Class of 2022, the No. 1️⃣ shortstop … and power for days.

Clavon, who is only a freshman, is a player with great potential and a load of talent. An outfielder and shortstop with an impressive swing, he put an abundance of athleticism and speed on display.
Also Dutchtown’s quarterback, Clavon has already committed to Oklahoma.
Austin is another athlete who spurs nothing but talent out of Pace. This junior Vanderbilt commit stands at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds. He is not only fast on his feet but presents the same in his hands. Austin is an all-around player and can adapt to pretty much any position he’s put at. Although he is a primary infielder, he has great defensive abilities and also took the mound this past weekend.
Yeah, that bat will play at the next level. 👀 @PaceKnights‘ @VandyBoys-bound @RjAustin14 goes opposite field for a two-run blast. @MBPTakeover | @prepbaseball | @PBRGeorgia pic.twitter.com/fr4iGBRaUN
