Last week we broke down the top prospects from the event by position, and today we’ll take a look at the Top Overall Prospects from the event. We split up the rankings by Upperclassmen (2015 and 2016 graduates) and Underclassmen (2017 and 2018 prospects). Due to sheer numbers at the event (more underclass prospects attended) we ranked the Top Five Upperclassmen from the event, and the Top Ten Underclassmen.

Wauconda RHP Kevin Malisheski was the top upperclassman in attendance, thanks to his clean arm action on an 85-86 mph fastball. Malisheski rose in the rankings to No. 57 following his solid performance. Grant OF Michael Bengston led several statistical categories, thanks to his 91 mph exit velocity and 90 mph outfield arm.
