Duluth, Minn.- The Duluth Huskies have a catcher for 2021, and a good one at that. Cason Tollett, the 2019 high school graduate and current Arkansas Razorback, will catch for the white and blue the next time they take the field.

The 20-year-old Tollett signed to the Razorbacks as an impressive prospect, holding the number one 2019 catcher ranking in Arkansas to go with the third overall player in the state. Perfect Game also gave Cason a PG rating of 9.5, meaning they believe he could be a potentially high professional draft pick in the future.

A graduate of Little Rock Christian Academy, Tollett hit a .513 as a junior with 48 RBIs to go with seven home runs, per the Razorbacks official roster notes. Those accolades were more than enough to grant him the honors of USA Today’s All-USA team as well as the Arkansas Class 5A All-State squad. Tollett’s freshman year with the Razorbacks was unfortunately derailed by injury. Prior to that setback, however, Cason did some game action while playing as a pinch hitter against Eastern Illinois in mid-February-getting an at-bat in the eighth inning.
