Updated Class of 2025 Player Rankings (August)
Thanks to a great spring and summer season, we had the opportunity to see numerous prospects and are updating each of our class rankings based off what we have seen.
Many names came off the board to some of the top programs around the nation, many new names came to the forefront of the recruiting scene, and many prospects improved their game.
That being said, we have had the pleasure of seeing a number of solid players this past year. Prospects are popping up left and right, making velocity jumps, improving 60-yard dash times and showing more power with the bat.
As the school year starts and with fall ball right around the corner, we will take a look at "The Risers", "The Sleepers", "Showcase Standouts", and some of the top uncommitted prospects by position.
