Stone originally committed to play quarterback at Emporia State (Kan.) before deciding to focus on baseball only at Weatherford JC. The Coyotes had the two best junior college freshmen prospects in Texas this spring in Stone and righthander Cameron Cox. While Cox has more projection remaining, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Stone has better present stuff. He throws a 91-93 mph fastball that touches 95 and complements it with a good curveball. He'll need to hone his changeup and command to remain a starter in pro ball. His football background is evident in the way he competes on the mound.
