The Top 3

Grady Westphal RHP / SS / Blue Valley, KS / 2025

Emerging as one of the best young arms in the Midwest, Westphal separates himself as a high end strike thrower with a college ready slider. Most recently, Westphal cruised through an two innings of work at this year's Future Games. 




Deacon Pomeroy C / 3B / Shawnee Heights, KS / 2025

As physical a player as you will find in the class across the country, Pomeroy put his strength on display at this year's Future Games by posting an 99 mph exit velo in BP and the hitting three balls at 96+ exit velos. 




Colton Sims 3B / OF / Shawnee Mission East, KS / 2025

Long and athletic, Sims is already shows some impressive numbers and a polished skill set. Sims hit in the middle of the order for a talented SME squad this spring and played up this summer for BC. Expect to see big results when he starts facing competition his own age. 





Top Risers

As with every season that goes by, many players take major leaps physically and developmentally. Below are some of the biggest risers since our latest rankings.

Sam Bettis RHP / 3B / Washburn Rural, KS / 2025

Physically impressive at 6-4 195, Bettis is one of those rare young arm that shows not only a big arm but feel for the strike zone as well.  The big right-hander had a few impressive outings at Creekside this summer. 



Max Bettis RHP / 1B / Washburn Rural, KS / 2025

Like his twin brother, Max see his name shoot up our rankings as his arm strength continues to rise. At 6-foot-3, 195-pounds, already showing body control, and big arm strength from the OF, there is much more velo to come soon for Max. 



Westin Boyle SS / RHP / St. Thomas Aquinas, KS / 2025

It is all about the defense and projection for Boyle. As sure handed as SS as can be found in the KS class, shows the skill to stick there long term and at the next level. Offensively, expect to see Boyle to really come into his own with the addition of some strength.   




The Newcomers

This summer, we found a couple of difference makers who earned their way into our rankings. All three of the prospects below enter the rankings in the top 10.

Max Huston SS / RHP / Seaman , KS / 2025

A true two-way prospect, Huston proved he is as dynamic of a player as there is in the class this Spring and Summer. Defensively, he looks just as at home patrolling center field with high end speed as he is at shortstop with clean action and a big arm across the diamond. On the mound, Huston uses his athleticism to pound the zone with a mid to upper 80s fastball. 




Nate Schlote OF / RHP / Shawnee Mission East, KS / 2025

At 6-foot-2, 175 with a long, loose, and fast arm, Schlote shows all of the sings of a future power arm. Up to 87 at the MOKAN Summer Underclass Games already this summer, there is a strong chance the right-hander is right around the corner from low 90s and beyond. Shows tools on the offensive side of the ball as well. 




Ty Miller RHP / 1B / Olathe West, KS / 2025

Yet another long, clean, and athletic strike thrower in this class, Miller might have the highest celling of the group.  Miller has dominated the strike zone and hitters each and every time we have seen his this summer and his velo continues to tick up. The 6-foot-5, 185-pound prospect will be an exciting follow.
