2015 Colorado Player Rankings Released

By John Cackowski
State Director

The 2015 class in Colorado is deep with talent across the state, headlined by prospects Nick Shumpert and Wyatt Cross. What's interesting about this class though is the high number of high-level prospects that are still on the board, with 18 of the top 35 still uncommitted. The 2015 rankings reflect the talent these seniors have and the comprehensive coverage the Prep Baseball Report has in Colorado.
Nick Shumpert
The class of 2015 in Colorado is very deep, and there will always be room for discussion regarding who is the best of the best. The No. 1 player in the 2015 class is Nick Shumpert (Highlands Ranch, 2015) Kentucky commit, who exploded on the National scene this past summer as he toured the country stopping in San Diego, Chicago, and Cary, NC. The 6-foot, 180-pound shortstop is sure to have his name called this June.  Not far behind is Wyatt Cross (Legacy, 2015) who joined Shumpert traveling the country. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound left-handed hitting catcher who is committed to North Carolina is one of the best throw and catch receivers in the country with a 1.75 pop time, and mid 80's velocity from the catchers position.

The rest of the class is rounded out by Mississippi State commit, Greg Pickett (Legend, 2015) who is menacing at the plate at 6-4, 215 lbs. The ball explodes off his bat as fast and as far as any left handed power hitter in the country. Brent Schwarz (Regis Jesuit, 2015) comes in at No. 4. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound RHP who is committed to Rice has been up to 90 this fall, and is the most polished pitcher in 2015 class in Colorado  Rounding out the top 5 is Nebraska commit, Ryan Connolly (Douglas County, 2015). The 6-foot-4, 195-pound LHP is the top southpaw in the state with a fastball that lives in upper 80's and has good projectability.
