By: Diego Solares
Area Scout, Illinois & Missouri

Earlier in the week, the PBR Missouri staff updated the state's 2025 rankings with the high school season coming to a close, expanding the list to 150 names with plenty of movement throughout. For more information on the official release of these rankings, click HERE.

Yesterday, our staff detailed a handful of names that rose up the rankings inside our 'Risers' article, which you can find HERE.

Today our attention turns to the names that debuted for the first time in this update. These players impressed our staff over the winter circuit or with their performances throughout the high school season.

Learn more about the fresh faces that find themselves on the 2025 rankings for the first time below.


Rylan Mills C / HomeSchool , MO / 2025

Strong, athletic, and well-proportioned 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete. Showed the loudest stuff at the Missouri Bulls Scout Day this winter, running his fastball up to 88 mph, holding 86-87 throughout. Metrically, spun one of the better breaking balls on our winter circuit, spinning it at 2500+ RPM on average at 69-71 mph.

Haden Terrill RHP / Wellington Napoleon, MO / 2025

From 3/1/23: " 6-foot-6, 210-pounds with long, lanky levers, Terrill’s fastball came out of his hand easily, sitting 86-88 mph from a lower arm slot with ride up in the zone at times. Terrill’s primary secondary pitch was a sweeping slider at 77-80 mph, and he also turned over a firm 81-82 mph changeup with straight action. Terrill’s levers flashed strength in BP too, as he averaged 88.1 mph per batted ball, peaking at 92.7 mph. He’s headed into the spring with plenty of momentum, and is a name-to-know uncommitted sophomore arm in the state."

Kyle Rehg SS / Eureka , MO / 2025

From 2/9/23: "...was another prospect to leave a lasting impression at his PBR event debut. A projectable 6-foot-1, 180-pound athlete with present strength attached, Rehg took an excellent round of BP, squaring balls up with authority on a consistent basis (90.2 mph) and reaching a 96.4 mph high. He’s an advanced athlete, running a 3.89 30-yard dash, and looked the part on the infield with swift, savvy actions on the dirt. Rehg showed well on the mound as well, running his fastball up to 87 mph, sitting at 84-86 mph with a changeup (76-77 mph) and slider (72 mph) to complement it."

Jake Thomas RHP / Staley, MO / 2025

From 3/2/23: "...came away from this event with plenty of momentum, showing well on both sides of the ball. A highly projectable 6-foot-1, 166-pound lean-levered athlete, Thomas ability to spin the baseball is way advanced for his age. His arm worked clean and easy, holding 84-85 mph on his fastball while averaging 2562 RPM, peaking at 2634 RPM. He ripped off some of the day’s best sliders, a pitch that reached as high as 18.2 inches of horizontal movement at 75-76 mph, maxing at 2815 RPM while averaging 2682 RPM. Thomas’ arm talent was further reiterated from the outfield, where his 90 mph bullet finished just one tick behind the day’s leader."

Ethan Milius OF / Fulton, MO / 2025

From 3/1/23: "...was another sophomore to come out of this event as a major winner. Built at a highly projectable 6-foot-1, 155-pounds with lean levers and plenty of physical maturity to come, Milius’ day started with an upside look on the mound. He consistently threw his fastball in the zone at 83-85 mph from an easy, low-effort operation, and the way his body works downhill suggests there’s plenty of untapped velocity to come down the road. Milius showed two secondaries, a 71-72 mph curveball and 76-78 mph changeup, and he confidently threw them both around the zone, playing well off his fastball. He then showed well as a position player, running a 7.04 in the 60-yard dash, topping at 90 mph from the outfield, and taking an athletic round of BP while squaring his hardest ball up at 91.3 mph."

Brady Nolen OF / Festus , MO / 2025

From 3/1/23: "...made a name for himself after a high-end athletic showing at this event. Nolen, who’s a 6-foot, 180-pound athlete with strength attached, ran the day’s fastest 60 time, clocking a 6.79 on our Swift lasers. He consistently peppered the back net in BP with line drives, swinging a loose, easy, and athletic right-handed swing. Nolen stayed on the barrel consistently, averaging 89.8 mph per batted ball, and his 95.7 mph max exit velocity was amongst the highest marks for any 2025 prospect in attendance. His athleticism showed in the outfield too, where he attacked the ball with confidence and rhythm, topping at 88 mph on his firmest throw home. Headed into his sophomore year, Nolen will look to play a role on a Festus squad that will aim to return to the 5A state playoffs this spring."

Parker Mann OF / Nixa, MO / 2025

From 3/4/23: "...stands at 5-foot-11, 160-pounds with wiry strength, and he ran the fastest 60-yard dash off any underclassmen in attendance at 6.63. He regularly produced above-average contact in BP from a loose, highly athletic right-handed swing, averaging 87.6 mph per barrel, peaking at 96.4 mph on his firmest swing. His furthest ball traveled 379 ft., a mark that’s well advanced for his age, and he averaged 274 ft., which is also a noteworthy metric"

Dylan Cassidy LHP / Lees Summit West, MO / 2025

From 3/1/23: "...showed an athletic left-handed swing in BP. Working uphill to contact, Cassidy stayed in the zone with his barrel, repeating gap-to-gap contact during his round. The 6-foot-1, 165-pound sophomore averaged 85 mph per batted ball, and he peaked at 89.9 mph, both numbers that should uptick as he continues to get more physically mature."

Brody Kleffner RHP / Fatima, MO / 2025

From 2/7/23: "...who’s long arms and lanky 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame ooze upside, first popped to our staff at the St. Louis Open last fall. He built off that performance and improved greatly in this look, swinging an extremely loose and fast right-handed bat throughout BP. Kleffner averaged 76.1 mph of bat speed and 22.6 mph of hand speed, both of which grade out to the highest performance tier on our player profiles for someone his age. He worked the pull-side throughout BP, repeated his swing rather consistently, and should only add more thump as his frame continues to fill out. Kleffner’s fastball sat at 81-84 mph on the mound with natural run and sink from a live, loose arm action. His primary off-speed pitch in this look was a 72-74 mph changeup that also showed run and sink, working with similar extension and from the same arm angle as his fastball."

Reign Williams OF / Lees Summit, MO / 2025

From 2/17/23: "...really caught our attention in this look, and the 5-foot-10, 175-pound sophomore is a name-to-know in the class moving forward. Williams really looks the part in a uniform, and he sprayed line drive contact off a repeatable left-handed swing, staying on plane and barreling line drives as a result. Williams athletic testing measurables are noticeable - he posted a 1.68 10-yard split, ran a 3.90 30-yard dash, and jumped 31.4 inches in the vertical. His athleticism, polish at the plate, and future upside all make Williams an intriguing prospect to follow."
