Complete Class of 2023 Rankings


Josh Knoth RHP / OF / Patchogue Medford, NY / 2023

Electric, high spin stuff; Advanced spin and movement on the breaking balls that he can land for strikes and will generate plenty of swing and misses out of the zone. College of Charleston commit

High ceiling 6'5 southpaw. Advanced Hop+ and Sweep+ scores on the Fastball and slider last summer. Clemson Commit




Adam Agresti C / 1B / Kennedy Catholic, NY / 2023

The physical backstop continues to be a threat on both sides of the ball through the summer. Developing into a bonafide power bat accompanied by an above average arm behind the plate. St. John's Commit




Samuel Stafura SS / 2B / Walter Panas, NY / 2023

Toolsy middle infielder with twitch and strength in the actions. 6.55 laser timed 60 this preseason; glides around the infield with plenty of arm strength and ability to make all the plays. Clemson Commit
