2025 Rankings: Risers

PBR Mississippi Staff

There are dozens of risers in the 2025 class, but they will all get their shine in different tweets and articles throughout the next year. The great thing about our 2025 class is the depth and projection of our large list. As our rankings continue to be updated, players are evaluated at each look and have an opportunity to make an new impression.

With that being said, weeks of hard work & research goes into these rankings. We always have our eyes on the most likely players to make the next move up. Here are some of the fastest risers across our 2025 class.


2025 risers

Landon Harmon RHP / OF / East Union Attendance Center, MS / 2025

Mississippi State commit, 6-foot-4, 170-pounds. Wiry, lean and athletic frame, the recent Mississippi State commit made a big name for himself at the PBR Future Games in late July, where he committed following the event. On the mound, has an advanced presence, slower-tempo to the delivery but everything comes out effortless. Has an over-the-top slot and pounds the zone consistently. At his Future Games debut, the fastball was electric, sitting 87-89 mph and ran it up to 90 and 91 mph a few times, shows a slider as an offspeed offering in the low-70's that generates swing-and-miss stuff. High follow this upcoming spring.

Banks Teater C / 1B / Magee , MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-0, 170-pounds. The left-handed hitting catcher has a lot of upside to like about his frame. Lean, athletic, broad shoulders and shows plenty of tools with his skillset behind the dish. Has a smooth stroke from the left side with plenty of pop to all parts of the field and also presents some natural life to the swing, has recorded max exit velocity of 93.4 mph earlier this year. Behind the plate, Teater gathered pop times in the 1.92-1.94 range over at the Future Games this summer and also has plenty of arm strength at 78 mph. One of the top catchers in the Magnolia state.

Talon Haley LHP / OF / Lewisburg , MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-1, 170-pounds. A long, lean uncommitted lefty is another big arm on the rise from Lewisburg. Haley has very loose and whippy arm action with lots of late life to his mid to upper 80’s fastball. He also shows the makings of a plus breaking ball with plenty of downward action. The breaking ball, paired with his solid mimicking change up makes Haley a definite starter prospect with 3 plus pitches he keeps in the zone.

Maddox Miller LHP / 1B / Oak Grove , MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-2, 180-pounds. Has become one of the top southpaw's across the state. Has recently made a few strides in terms of a jump in velo. Made his Future Games debut this summer, recording 5 K's in his two innings of work for Team Mississippi. Smooth and clean mechanics on the mound with feel for a three pitch repertoire, the fastball plays in the low-to-mid-80's with plenty of arm side action. Shows both a slider and changeup as offspeed offerings that generate weak contact, both can be thrown for a strike in any count. Miller also shows the ability to pitch backwards and keep hitters guessing.

Griffin Enis CF / OF / Corinth, MS / 2025

Ole Miss commit, 6-foot-0, 175-pounds. The athletic Enis is a recent Ole Miss commit out of Corinth. Enis first came onto the scene with an explosive 6.65 60-time at the Junior Future Games in 2021 and has continued to improve his other tools since then. He shows the ability to play multiple positions on the field but with his speed and instincts, he may end up roaming the gaps in centerfield. Enis has more power on the way with a gap to gap approach and knows how to find the barrel.

South McCoy OF / SS / Tupelo, MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 5-foot-11, 175-pounds. A solid all around prospect out of Tupelo, MS. Was spotted at the Easley Baseball Club scout day at the start of the summer, identifies as one of the top outfielders across the Magnolia State. A smooth stroke from the right side of the plate, McCoy recorded personal bests from the event, a 91.3 max EV with a gap-to-gap approach, a solid arm both across the infield at the shortstop position and in the outfield as well. Accurate throws, smooth hands on transfers, and athletic footwork. Can also hop on the mound and compete, fastball plays in the 80-82 mph range, has topped 83 in a recent showing as well. Quality dual guy that has potential at all areas of the game. Will be headed to the AL/MS Border Battle at the end of October. 

Gardner Young LHP / OF / Jackson Prep, MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-0, 160-pounds. Another left-hander that has emerged onto the scene as of late. A lean, wiry and athletic build that has a long and loose arm action on the bump. Was recently seen at the Magnolia State Games in June, where he was one of the top performers on the mound, the fastball worked in the low-80's with arm side run, showed the ability to throw a breaking ball in any count for a strike at 68-72 mph. Was tough on all left-handed hitters, creating an uncomfortable look with the FB/BB combo. An arm that has a chance to continue to make jumps all around.

Baylor Roberts SS / 2B / Saltillo , MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 5-foot-11, 140-pounds. Roberts is a wiry uncommitted middle infielder from Saltillo who possesses next level hands and very smooth actions on defense. As he continues to build on his frame he should settle in at the SS position though it looks as if you could put him anywhere on the field. Roberts can swing the bat and uses the whole field approach with plenty more strength coming. As his body matures, watch for Roberts continue climb in the 2025 class rankings.

John Abt SS / RHP / Brandon , MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-1, 160-pounds. Abt is another young player that continues to show progression in many areas. The uncommitted infielder, right handed pitcher from Brandon has improved on his metrics each time we see him. At the plate, Abt uses a line drive, pull side approach, with an exit velocity up to 90 mph. On the mound, he has a very repeatable and synced up delivery with a fastball that reaches the low to mid-80s and good feel for his off speed stuff.

Jackson Moore 3B / RHP / Tishomingo County , MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-0, 175-pounds. The uncommitted Moore is a sturdy built and strong 3B from Tishomingo County. The former Junior Future Games participant has big time pop with exit velocities already into the mid-90’s and a little loft to his swing which makes him one of the bigger power prospects in the 2025 class. He also plays a solid 3B with sure hands and strong accurate arm. Moore can give you quality innings on the mound if needed with a low 80’s fastball and feel for the strike zone with multiple pitches.

Tanner Beliveau C / 3B / Petal, MS / 2025

Uncommitted, 6-foot-2, 185-pounds. The big, 6-foot-2 Petal Panther has emerged on the scene as of late due to his right arm. Beliveau, who has a power bat and upside behind the plate, worked a few innings this summer and showed promise on the bump with a fastball that reaches the upper 80’s. As he continues to get more opportunities, it's exciting to see what's in store for his future.
