Nevada 2024 Class Rankings - Update

Brett Harrison
West Coast Supervisor

With the 2023 Fall Season wrapping up and now, we updated our Class of 2024 Rankings and expand our roster to 75 prospects. As the build-up for the High School Season is in full swing, we highlight some new names earning their spot in the Top 10 as well as the top Uncommitted prospects by position. 

As always, the evaluation process is a fluid and ongoing process with multiple viewings in order to get the best feel for players abilities. It’s important to note that as players continue their development some show marked improvement at a much more rapid pace. That doesn’t indicate that other players got worse or went backwards, it’s just how player development works. As the year unfolds, players make improvements and new prospects pop up on the radar expanding the Prep Baseball Rankings universe.  In addition to the evaluations of players, our scouts, both those in Nevada, regionally and nationally, have also had multiple discussions with each other to review our individual lists and then make adjustments based on what we've each seen.

Burke Mabeus C / Bishop Gorman, NV / 2024

The Oregon signee had his breakout Junior campaign this past Spring, catapulting him into a huge Summer with the Canes National group where he proved himself as one of the top backstops in the country with present power from both sides of the plate to go with a PBR Verified 1.88 Pop Time (84 mph C Velo). With pro bloodlines, the swift-hitting catcher  has set himself up to be one of top prep backstops to be considered in the 2023 MLB Draft.

Maddox Riske SS / 2B / Bishop Gorman , NV / 2024

The future USC Trojan holds strong in the #3 spot after a successful Summer in the books. Helping lead Bishop Gorman to the 2023 NIAA State Championship, the premium position prospect was a standout at the 2023 PBR ProCase - West and continued that throughout his summer campaign as he primes himself and the Gaels as one of the favorites to repeat this upcoming Spring.

Tee Southisene RHP / OF / Basic, NV / 2024

Nevada's top arm in the 2024 Class, Tee Southisene has carved his own path as the go to guy for Basic Academy in big games, dating back to his sophomore year. Now heading into his senior season, expect much of the same from another member of the "Southisene Army" who seems to always rise to the occasion as the Wolves are primed for a bounce back season in 2024.

Thomas Young OF / Douglas, NV / 2024

The San Diego State signee has proven himself as one of the top athlete in Nevada's 2024 Class, and has seen that translate into his game throughout his Junior season and into the Summer where he showed it off at the PBR ProCase - West, posting a 6.76 Swift Timed 60, a 91 mph Outfield Velocity and a 96.7 mph TrackMan Exit Velocity with more to come as he fills out his 6-foot-1 frame.

Henry Prindl RHP / OF / Bishop Gorman, NV / 2024

Their has been arguably no one who has seen their stock skyrocket more over this past 6 months than Henry Prindl.

Christian Gross OF / SS / Faith Lutheran, NV / 2024

This Summer saw the tools starting to take shape and come together to produce the type of players we knew Gross would be. His PBR Verified 95 mph Outfield Velocity puts him among the top outfield arms in the country and has since started to translate to the mound where he has shown projectable stuff as he transitions from being thrower to a pitcher. Expect Gross to have his breakout high school campaign this Spring for the Crusaders.

Zachary Bender RHP / 1B / Palo Verde, NV / 2024

Another prospect who has seen his stock rise considerably over the past 6 months, the 6-foot-5 right-hander announced his presence at the 2023 West Coast Games, running it up to 89.5 mph from a loose, low 3/4 slot with much more expected to come. The Loyola Marymount signee will be a key contributor on the mound this upcoming Spring for a talented Palo Verde group.

Takeo Cervantez 3B / C / Bishop Manogue, NV / 2024

The reigning Northern Nevada Pitcher of the Year and multi-sport athlete announced his presence this past Spring on both sides of the ball, but stood tall on the mound all season for Miners. After his standout Junior campaign, Cervantez earned the start in Game 1 for Team Nevada at the 2023 West Coast Games, the committing to the hometown University of Nevada shortly after.

Connor Apeceche C / 3B / Green Valley , NV / 2024

Apeceche remains the top Uncommitted prospect in Nevada's 2024 Class.

The 100 mph TrackMan Exit Velocity gives a small glimpse into the power that he has shown throuhgout his high school career and is expected to be one of the next prospects off the board.
