With another summer of baseball in the books, the 2022 Class heads into their senior seasons. The 2022 Class in North Carolina features no shortage of talent throughout and several guys will have pro area scouts in to see them early this fall and spring. With the fall season kicking off the North Carolina 2022 Class Rankings have been updated and expanded to the Top 315.

2022 Class Rankings Update


Top of the Class


Ryan Clifford (OF/1B, Pro5 Academy) remains at the top of the 2022 Class in NC. His bat continues to produce at national events with a mature approach and power present.


A big riser this summer, Eli Serrano (OF/LHP, Pro5 Academy) moves up to No. 2 in NC. Long and athletic with the ability to use the whole field and more power likely to come. 


Michael Gupton (OF, Rolesville) is know for his speed. His elite run tool stands out on the diamond and his bat produced impressive exit velocities over the summer.
