Prep Baseball Report-Missouri has updated and expanded the 2016 rankings, taking into account three fall events in Missouri and one in Kansas.  Several players have moved up and many more were added to the list of rankings. Five players from Missouri's 2016's have given their verbal commitment, with Chris Cornelius' commitment being the most recent.  

Mitchell McCallister (Staley) makes a big jump to #22 with a good showing in Topeka on November 2.  McCallister posted a 6.83 60 and an 88 positional velo from the outfield.  Benjamin Sems (Westminster), a left-handed hitting middle infielder, had a good workout at the End of Fall Showcase, with a 78 mph positional velo and an 85 mph exit velo.  The two-time state champion comes in at #33.  #51 Riley Herron (Kickapoo) shows signs of adding strength and speed, with a 7.04 60 and 86 mph exit velo from the left side.

Among the newcomers to the list are #17 Evan Stoll (Marquette) and #30 Ben Palter (Rockhurst).  Stoll hit 90 mph on the radar gun in both the outfield and on the mound.  Palter ran a 6.70 with an 88 mph exit velo and a 81 mph positional velo.
