Just Released: Updated and Expanded Ohio Class of 2017 Rankings

By JD Heilmann and PBR staff
PBR Ohio Scouting Director

With the winter season behind us and high school baseball just around the corner, we turn our attention to the latest updates for Ohio’s Class of 2017 rankings. During the course of the winter, we traveled all across the state evaluating players from around the great state of Ohio.

The top four stays the same with flame-throwing RHP Tyler Brown (Olentangy Orange, pictured right) holding the top spot. Outfielder Jake Ruby (Bishop Hartley), MIF Luke Waddell (Loveland), and RHP/SS Andrew Abrahamowicz (Elyria Catholic, Nebraska commit) are the next three.

Below we take a look at "What's New At The Top", "The Risers", as well as "The Newcomers".
