Top 3

Cameron Carter OF / LHP / Olathe West, KS / 2024

The recent Arkansas commit stands at 6-foot-1, 165-pounds with quick-twitch athleticism in his long limbs and tons of room to add size and strength, which we have seen him start to do this spring. Offensively, the left-handed hitter shows rhythm throughout before using a cleaned-up smooth load and launching his hands to leverage balls to all fields. Carter puts pressure on the defensive every time the ball is in play with his elite speed. Carter shows athleticism in the outfield along with a strong arm that he also shows off on the mound. The left-hander sits in the low 80s with some arm side run and much more velo to come as he continues to adds strength.


Anson Seibert RHP / Blue Valley Southwest, KS / 2024

At 6-foot-7, 226-pound frame Seibert has a high of a celling as any arm in the country. The right-hander uses an extremely short arm stroke before pulling down through a high-3/4 slot with high-end arm speed out front. Despite his youth and long limbs, Seibert does an impressive job of filling up the strike zone, especially with his fastball at 87-89 mph. Seibert also mixes in a changeup with some fade at 78-80. 


Blake O'Brien OF / RHP / St. Thomas Aquinas, KS / 2024

Arguably the most polished and skilled prospect currently in the class, O'Brien shows he is a fierce competitor every time see him. O'Brien stands 5-foot-11, 170-pounds with some room to add more strength. On the mound, O'Brein features a fastball up to 86 and shows feel for 3 off speed pitches highlight by a 12/6 curveball at 67-69. Offensively, O'Brien is a balanced player that has enough speed to pressure defenses and enough pop to drive the ball through the gaps. Though O'Brien is now 3rd in the state, he moves up considerably in our national rankings after a strong preseason and spring. 


Risers

The fall, preseason, and spring saw many names we already knew make big jumps in talent and skill. These three below led the way with some impressive performances at preseason events, rising into the top 30.

Jack Millman SS / RHP / De Soto, KS / 2024

The 6-foot, 180-pound two-way prospect had an impressive showing at the Between the Lines scout day. The right-handed hitter produced a lout round of BP, barreling nearly every ball. On the mound, the right-hander showed off a fastball that flashed some downhill tilt at 80-83 and mixing a curveball and changeup as well. 

 

 

Jake Wolcott SS / RHP / Manhattan, KS / 2024

The 6-foot, 160-pound two way prospect shines brightest on the infield where he shows advanced hands and feet. Walcott also shows some arm strength on the mound as well with a fastball up to 76 mph. 

 

Gus Renter 3B / C / Manhattan , KS / 2024

The 5-foot-11, 165-pound right hander lists himself as a position player first, but really stood out on the mound as he threw strikes with a fastball up to 77 and mixed a short and sharp slider at 69-70.

Daegen Vinduska 1B / LHP / Rock Creek, KS / 2024

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound left-hander lists himself as a first baseman first, but really impressed on the mound. The long limbed lefty showed a clean and repeatable delivery with an over the top slot producing a fastball at 71-76 with consistent strikes. 


Nicholas Paredes SS / 2B / Shawnee Mission West, KS / 2024

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound athlete impresses on both sides of the ball. The right-handed hitter showed off a strong round of BP and a quick home-to-first time at the Tigers Scout Day. He also jumped on the mound and showed a fastball up to 77 mph.
