Updated and Expanded Class of 2020 Rankings

PS All Sta

The fall afforded us the opportunity to see many new players in the 2020 class, and with the last major update to the rankings coming in early September, it’s time for an update. The September update saw us expand to 65 ranked players, and this time us no exception as the rankings expand to the top 90 players in the class. There are many new faces to the rankings, while others who were previously ranked showed they deserved to climb significantly.

LHP Skyler Brown stays at the top where he has been since he lit up the Border Battle event in October with an electric fastball that touched 89 and an advanced changeup that gave hitters fits. Brown committed to Louisville in the days that followed the event.

RHP Kaleb Corbett  checks in at No. 2 with a fastball that has been up to 90 mph and a hard high-70’s slider. Corbett’s performance at last summer’s Underclass Games event was dominant, and he committed to Louisville shortly after the event.

RHP Jackson Fristoe holds down the No. 3 spot. At 6-foot-3, 187-pounds, Fristoe is athletic on the mound and may possess the highest ceiling of anyone in the class. He committed to Kentucky a few days after an impressive performance at last summer’s Top Prospect Games where his fastball was up to 87 with a low-70’s curveball that will likely develop into a hard slider over the next three years.

SS Seth Williams checks in at No. 4. The advanced left handed hitter has a polished swing that allows him to drive the ball to the gaps and is a solid defender up the middle. Williams is committed to Louisville.

SS Logan Beard climbed up the rankings after a big performance at the Border Battle in October and holds down the No. 5 spot. Beard has a high offensive ceiling and is just starting to scratch the surface of his power potential. Defensively, he has the glove and the arm to stick at SS at the next level. Beard committed to Louisville shortly after the Border Battle event.

Stay tuned tomorrow as we will take a look at highest-ranked newcomers and biggest risers.
