The Top 10

2 Ryan Prior NJ Red Bank Catholic 2025 RHP Virginia
3 Luke Wood NJ Pennsville 2025 LHP  
4 Julius Rosado NJ South River 2025 SS Rutgers

+ The Top 3 remain Notre Dame commit Jamie Zee Jr., Virginia commit Ryan Prior, and uncommitted LHP Luke Wood.

+ Wake Forest commit RHP Marcelo Harsch (Seton Hall Prep) moves into the No. 5 slot. Long, lanky 6-foot-4 frame and up to 90mph, Harsch has one of the top ceilings of anyone in this class.

+ North Carolina commit SS AJ Terry (Randolph) moves up a few slots to No. 6. Rangey, athletic and knack for the barrel, Terry has the athletic ability to remain in the top 10 for years to come.

+ To date, Luke Wood remains the lone uncommitted player in the Top 10.

High Risers / Players to Watch

+ 1B Dylan Passo (Red Bank Catholic / Notre Dame)

+ SS Ethan Tolbert (Moorestown / Penn State)

+ RHP Eamon McDermott (Bishop Eustace)

+ OF William Mahala (Seton Hall Prep)

+ 2B William Kraemer (The Hun School)


Top 50 By the Numbers

+ Maryland, Notre Dame, Rutgers, Seton Hall, and Virginia lead the way with two commits each in the top 50.

+ Out of the 15 commits in the top 50, 6 are primary pitchers and 6 are primary shortstops. This continues the trend of early commitments coming from pitchers and high end middle infielders that we hav seen in other classes. The remaining three commits to date are first base (2) and outfield (1) as we head into the spring calendar year of this group's sophomore campaign(s).
