By: Adam Panayotovich

Top Prospect - Chicago has perennially been one of the Midwest's biggest events of the summer for Prep Baseball Report. The events’ purpose is to bring a brighter light to those rising seniors heading into their final high school season. This years event was hosted on Tuesday, June 18 at DuPage Medical Group Field in Joliet, IL and just as in years past, high level talent was on full display showcasing their talents in front of collegiate and professional scouts. 

A few days following the event, we posted our rapid analysis on the event in our Quick Hits post and we broke down each of the measured statistics in our Statistical Analysis story. This week, we rolled out all the positional groups (COFINFP) and today we wrap up post-event coverage with looking at the events’ Top Overall Prospects.
