Prep Baseball Report

Class of 2022 Rankings Updated

Indiana Scouting Staff

Indiana's class of 2022 rankings have been updated. Brebeuf senior ace Andrew Dutkanych IV (Vanderbilt recruit) is without-a-doubt the state's top prospect and has held on to the top spot since we began ranking the 2022 class a few years back. 'Duke' is a first round pick candidate in this year's MLB Draft and was recently named the No. 8 prospect nationally for the senior class.


Westfield HS senior right-hander Gage Stanifer (Cincinnati recruit) has moved up not only our state rankings but also the Prep Baseball Report National list. After a strong 2021 fall campaign, Stanifer impressed scouts at February's Super 60 with a firm fastball sitting 92-95 with arm-side sink and run along with a sharp, late breaking slider. He has dominated the high school season thus far with a fastball now up to 97.

Central Florida recruit Cameron Decker (Evansville North HS) moved up to No. 4 in Indiana and climbed 149 spots in the recently released 2022 National Rankings to No. 151. Decker is one of the best high school bats in the country showing present power and potential to become an elite hitter at the next level. Decker has been on a tear offensively this spring having already hit eight homeruns.

Right-handed pitcher Jacob Gothrup (Lafayette Harrison) moved into the Top 10 at No. 9. The Wabash Valley recruit is an athletic arm with a projectable frame at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds. This spring we've had Gothrup up to 92. There is a lot to like about Gothrup as he has tons of upside in his frame and athleticism along with his arm speed. Expect even more velocity out of this arm very shortly.

Lake Central's Connor Misch moved up a few spots to No. 10. The Xavier recruit and two-way prospect is a constant threat to do damage from the right-side of the plate and can beat any lineup when stepping on the bump with one of the better breaking balls in the class.


More Notable Risers

No. 15 Joey Wilmoth (Fishers HS), an Illinois State recruit, has impressed early this spring with a fastball into the low 90's and showing the ability to spin the breaking ball for a strike and also bury it as an out-pitch.

Indiana Wesleyan recruit Grayson Knight (University HS) rose to No. 23. The strong built 6-foot-4, 205 pound right-hander is now up to 92 on the mound and projects to throw even harder in the near future.

Western Carolina recruit Eric Santaguida (Crown Point HS) climbed to No. 29. A tall, thick, 6-foot-4, 210 pound righty, he has a consistent upper-80's fastball, T90 and a slurvey breaking ball with late action that's effective low in the zone.

Conor Pangburn (Lake Central) rose to No. 35. The Purdue Northwest recruit stands in at 6-foot-4, 185 pounds with an 87-90 mph fastball and sharp slider at 77-78.

Southpaw Sam Reed (Brebeuf HS) moved into the Top 40 at No. 38. The Eastern Michigan recruit was up to 88 early this spring feel for his sharp slider and changeup.
