High School Draft 100 Update

Nathan Rode
National Supervisor

The spring season is underway across the entire country—even if the weather isn’t perfect and some states are just starting as others enter the playoffs. There have been a lot of developments in the high school class in the last two and a half months, so it’s time for some adjustments in the High School Draft 100.

The top four remain intact in LHP Matthew Liberatore (Mountain Ridge HS, AZ), OF Jarred Kelenic (Waukesha West HS, WI), RHP Mason Denaburg (Merritt Island HS, FL) and RHP Kumar Rocker (North Oconee HS, GA). Jumping to No. 5 is RHP Carter Stewart (Eau Gallie HS, FL). The Mississippi State recruit saw his velocity jump this spring and paired with his plus curveball, he’s become a slam-dunk first-round prospect and could even go in the top 10 picks come June. RHP Cole Winn (Orange Lutheran HS, CA) checks in at No. 6 with SS Brice Turang (Santiago HS, CA) and OF Alek Thomas (Mount Carmel HS, IL) following at Nos. 7 and 8. OF Connor Scott (Plant HS, FL) has been rocketing up boards this spring with left-handed swing and plus speed. He jumped to No. 9 and LHP Ryan Weathers (Loretto HS, TN) rounds out the top 10.

Also making big jumps up the rankings are RHP Adam Kloffenstein (Magnolia HS, TX), OF Jordyn Adams (Green Hope HS, NC) and RHP Grayson Rodriguez (Central Heights HS, TX). Kloffenstein and Rodriguez have both shown low-90s fastballs to go with secondary offerings that should be plus down the road. Adams’ athleticism is taking over and his future as a football player at North Carolina looks to be in doubt if a team is ready to drop some money on him in the first round.
