Prep Baseball Report

Class of 2020 State Rankings

California Scouting Staff

With 2018 coming to an end, and after two full years following them, the 2020 class in California is shaping up to be loaded with talent across the state, having over half of the Top 100 nationally ranked. Many of these rising juniors have made a name for themselves both locally and via the national circuit during the summer/fall.

With winter conditioning workouts helping players develop physically, as well as technically, we are excited to see these rising juniors again come spring. Our team of scouts have scoured the state for the top prep players in each class and have had multiple viewings on these players in our rankings. Many of these viewings came at our PBR events that have been held across the state.

Our scouts have also had multiple discussion to review our initial lists and make necessary adjustments based on what they've seen over the past year. The overall list was presented, torn down, picked apart, recreated, torn down, and picked apart again before our scouts concluded on what we present here.

In the end, the top three spots remain unchanged and our scouts agree that our updated and expanded 2020 Top 100 Player Rankings accurately reflect the talent of the class in California.
