Updated and Expanded 2015 Rankings



By Mike Penn
Michigan Director of Scouting

The top five in the Class of 2015 remained unchanged with Kentucky commit Josh Smith (Saline HS) retaining the top spot.  He is closely followed by his former teammate No. 2 Nick Plummer (Brother Rice HS).

The top 10 also had a slight re-shuffle with Tyler Schmidt (Crosswell-Lexington HS) and Grant Wolfram (Hamilton HS) moved up two slots each to No. 7 and No. 8 each.

Besides the minor changes in order at the top, the real story line are players making first time appearances or major jumps in the rankings.  Both Central Michigan commit Evan Kratt (Richmond HS) and Michigan State commit Matt Clark (Adrian HS) made major moves.

LHP Tyler Butzin (Taylor Kennedy HS) cracked the Top 25 making his first appearance in the rankings.  The lefty earned his debut as a result of an impressive performance at the Border Battle Games in September sitting 84-86mph.
