Mullenix, primarily a shortstop, is currently a freshman at Goliad High School. His performance at the Corpus Christi Under Armour Baseball Factory National Tryout in October earned him a selection to the invite-only Under Armour Baseball Factory National Team.
The Under Armour Recruiting Classic offers national tournament play against players from across the country. The competition and coaching at the tournament prepare players for showcasing their skills in front of scouts and college coaches.
Mullenix was selected to represent Baseball Factory at the event in Mesa, Ariz., along with other top high school players from across the country. The event will be held Dec. 27-30 at the Gene Autry Sports Complex, which is the former spring training home of the Los Angeles Angels.
