Brooks, Burke, DeBarge lead loaded group of FSS college alums

April 22, 2024

hat can’t Michael Brooks do?

A two-time alum of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series International Week — both in 2018 and 2019 — the Scorpions standout continues to shape into a legitimate prospect for the 2024 MLB Draft with a well-rounded game that’s continued to blossom at the University of Kansas. The redshirt junior is hitting .341 with six homers and 34 RBI this season, and is riding a whopping 17-game hitting streak, buoyed by four homers over his last contests.

He, of course, authored one of the more memorable moments in FSS history with his walk-off at Fenway Park back in 2019.

Blake Burke, INF — University of Tennessee

Dingers. Do you like dingers? Then you like the University of Tennessee big bopper, who’s been going back and forth all season long in a race for the Vols all-time homer record.

The 2020 National Combine star has already gone deep 14 times this season, including three in his last five games. His arrow also continues to be on the way up for the upcoming Draft.

Kyle DeBarge, INF — Louisiana

A local standout at the Future Stars Series national tournaments back when they were in Lake Charles, DeBarge chose to remain close to home as well when going to college, and has starred for the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns ever since.

The five-foot-nine, 175-pound junior has put together a monster year with a .351 average, 13 homers and 42 RBI and has been particularly hot of late, finishing with a nice six-for-nine showing in his last two games of the weekend against Coastal Carolina.

Braden Montgomery, OF — Texas A&M

At this point, it’s a story if Montgomery doesn’t make the alum report every week. A standout at every stop he made with the Future Stars Series — national tournaments, National Combine, International Week — the Texas A&M transfer star continues to see his name listed in the top five or ten of nearly every mock draft you see, and for good reason.

He’s hitting .376 with 22 home runs and 67 RBI and has produced six multi-hit games this month alone.

Peyton Consigli, RHP — Canisius

Most recently seen by the Future Stars Series at the 2020 World Combine, Consigli has since made a name for himself as a big arm at Canisius.

The six-foot-five, 220-pound junior held Quinnipiac to just two runs over six innings of work in his last outing and has walked just four batters in his last 19 innings of work.
