Uncommitted Fall Follows: 2025 Class

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Summer has ended and school is back in session in the state of Louisiana, which means that it's time for us to update our state rankings for each class.  Last week, we kicked things off with the 2024 class, which saw a new #1 prospect and an expansion of the list to 180 prospects in total.  This week we've shifted our focus to the 2025 class, and as a follow-up to our 2025 state rankings update, we've decided to provide a list below of the Top 5 uncommitted prospects in Louisiana's 2025 class.  Each of these prospects present their own unique talents and abilities that will surely help a program at the next level.  Be sure to continue to follow us, across all of our social media platforms, as we continue to update our state rankings for each class, over the next couple of weeks.




+ 2025 OF William Patrick (St. Frederick HS)

The St. Frederick HS product has true 5 tool potential and it was on full display at this summer's Future Games.  Patrick posted a 6.42 laser-timed 60, which was second to only teammate Noah Lewis.  He also showed a plus arm from the outfield, as he was able to run it up to 92 mph.  His in-game production at the Future Games, however, was what really stood out, as he went 3-4 with a HR, 3B, 5 RBI, 3 SB, and 4 BB.  Patrick is also capable of sticking in centerfield long term, which only makes him even more enticing to college recruiters at the next level.  



+ 2025 OF Noah Lewis (Catholic BR HS)

Lewis finished off the spring of his sophomore campaign as the leadoff hitter for the Bears, and carried that momentum into a strong summer, that was capped off at the 2023 Future Games.  If you like size and speed, then he's your guy, as Lewis stands in at a high-waisted 6'2" 185 lbs. with broad shoulders, and he posted a Future Games best 6.35 laser-timed 60.  Lewis was also able to translate that speed in-game, as one of his two hits at the Future Games was an infield single that he legged out, recording a 4.01 down the line.  



+ 2025 SS Casey McCoy (Dutchtown HS)

The 6'0" 178 lbs. athletic middle-infielder continued to raise his stock this summer, after a monster sophomore year for the Griffins.  McCoy was another member of our Future Games team who made the most out of his time at the Lakepoint Sports Complex in late-July, as he seemed to be on time in nearly every at-bat, finishing the week off going 4-7 at the plate with a 2B, 3B, and 2 RBI.  He also showed versatility on the infield, having played both shortstop and second base, and turned a really nice 6-4-3 double play, while at second base in Game 2 vs. Tennessee.  



+ 2025 UTIL Ryan Darrah (Brother Martin HS)

Projectable 6'3" 175 lbs. frame with broad shoulders and plenty of room to continue to fill out.  The Brother Martin HS product was the Catholic League Hitter of the Year last spring, just as a sophomore, and he showed why at the 2023 Future Games.  Darrah took quality at-bat after quality at-bat, on route to finishing the week 4-6 at the plate with a 2B, 3B, 4 RBI, 2 BB, and a SB.  Not only were his at-bats quality, but he showed the ability to hit the ball and drive the ball the other way, as all of his base knocks were from centerfield on over to the opposite field gap.  



+ 2025 SS Kason King (Franklin Parish HS)

Uber-projectable 6'3" 170 lbs. frame with long limbs and tons of room to add strength.  The Franklin Parish product unfortunately had to take this past summer off, due to an injury, but he made a great impression on our staff in the last look that we got at him during the playoffs.  In a second round matchup against top seeded Lutcher, King made every play that you'd want to see a future shortstop make.  His actions are smooth, he receives the ball with soft hands, and has a really good internal clock.  Almost fully recovered from that injury, we are excited to see him back on the diamond, as he's one of the state's best hidden gems.
