Director of Florida Operations/Area Scout

After highlighting the updated and expanded Florida Class of 2019 Rankings earlier this week, today we take a look at the Florida 2020 Class in the latest rankings update with an expanded list to 75.

RHP Victor Mederos (Pace HS, FL) not only stays in the top spot for the Florida 2020 Class, but is also the No. 1 Overall ranked player in the recently updated Overall Class of 2020 Rankings. While there was no movement in the top five, plenty of players saw their name added to the list with more than 20 entering the newly updated rankings. The whole top 10 is already committed to play at the next level, as well as 18 of the top 25. 

Below is a full breakdown on each player in the top five with video:

Victor Mederos RHP / SS / Pace, FL / 2020

Miami recruit. Currently stands at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds with a strong, athletic build. On the mound, the young righty shows electric stuff with big upside. From a high-¾ slot he features a fastball that ranges from 90-92 mph, touching 94. He also shows a curveball at 69-72 mph and a cutter at 77 mph. He has long arms and a high waist and will be very interesting to watch progress. 




Jackson Miller C / RHP / JW Mitchell, FL / 2020

Wake Forest recruit. Currently stands at 5-foot-11, 170-pounds with an advanced approach and a path through the zone that works well from the left side. Shows a feel for the barrel and can generate power with his strong lower half. Defensively is where he really impresses. He easily receives high velocity arms without dragging the ball out of the zone. He has above average hands, a quality setup, and will be a plus defensive catcher. Very easy 2.0-2.05 with clean transfer and accurate throws. 




Dylan Crews OF / C / Lake Mary, FL / 2020

Louisiana State recruit. Currently stands at 5-foot-11, 160 pounds with plenty of athleticism. In the outfield, he runs through an outfield workout with everything you’d like to see. Fielding the ball in stride with a quick transfer he has low, accurate throws with carry topping out at 83 mph. Behind the plate, he is very athletic, a little less polished than the outfield, but the hands work well and is flexible with a lot of potential. Offensively he is well above average for his class with both hit and power tools. There is still a lot of room to grow and fill out. He has a path that keeps him the zone a long time with a lot of whip and bat speed through the zone. He creates quality leverage with a feel for the barrel and big power potential.




Nick Gorby LHP / Port St. Lucie, FL / 2020

Florida State recruit. Currently stands at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds with a big, strong build. He has a short, quick arm action where the ball jumps out of his hand at 87-90 mph with life and can run it up a little more when needed. He also has shown above average feel for a 71-72 mph curveball and a 73-74 mph changeup. Overall, Gorby stands out not only with his natural ability to pitch with three above average pitches, but also is a plus competitor. He may not be as projectable, but everything works and should continue to do nothing but get better. 



Albert Hernandez RHP / OF / Archbishop McCarthy, FL / 2020

Miami recruit. Currently stands at 6-foot-1, 185 pounds with an athletic, projectable build. He has very little effort from a low 3/4 slot with a late life on a fastball that sits 89-90 mph. He also shows a sweeping slider at 76 mph. He is very athletic and the arm works extremely quick. Overall, he has big time projection and will continue to throw harder.

Here's a look at how the Top 10 stacks up:

1 Victor Mederos FL Pace 2020 RHP Miami
2 Jackson Miller FL JW Mitchell 2020 C Wake Forest
