Andy Urban
OK/KS/MO/AR/Creekside Scouting Supervisor

The PBR Oklahoma 2023 Class Rankings have been updated after a baseball packed Preseason and start to the Spring season. The 2023s continue to add depth to an already talented class with some players who have seen major development along with a few newcomers to the list. Check out the risers, newcomers, and fully expanded rankings, below. 


William Brady Hamilton RHP / SS / Deer Creek , OK / 2023

Brady Hamilton leaps up 10 spots, due in most part, to the impressive growth he has made on the mound. The two-way standout starts at short for the top 5 Antlers, but his future is the brightest on the mound where he shows an arm action every pitching coach can dream on. Hamilton lives in the upper 80s already with much more room to grow. 

Braydon Sanford RHP / SS / Owasso, OK / 2023

Sanford jumps 11 spots after a standout preformance at the OK Preseason All-State where he proved he could command the zone with a fastball that has jumped into the upper 80s and a sharp slider. With his long and athletic frame we expect to see even more velo gains for Sanford. 

CJ Freeland C / OF / Ada , OK / 2023

Freeland just keeps getting better and better. The switch hitting catcher showed off more physicality and improved numbers across the board at the OK Preseason All-State showcase. He has also had a hot start for the sneaky talented Ada squad. 

Barrett Morgan RHP / Stillwater, OK / 2023

The biggest riser in this edition of the rankings, Morgan is up 93 spots dude to a huge velo jump and impressive command of three pitches. The Stillwater right-hander was up to 90 at the OK Preseason All-State and was poised to be one of the top arms in the state before being sidelined. We expect to see him come back better than ever. 

Jack Williams OF / RHP / Bixby, OK / 2023

The most impressive athlete in the state, Williams jumps 13 spots in this rankings and could quickly see himself shoot up the list yet again if he keeps ups his red hot start with the bat for Bixby. Williams is an unique blend of size, speed, and strength that will play at every level. Oh, and he is an upper 80s arm on the mound as well. As he continues to polish his game, there is very little Williams won't be able to accomplish.  

Cale Wetwiska RHP / OF / Bethany, OK / 2023

Wetwiska sees his name rocket up the rankings by over 50 spots. With most two-way athletes, it becomes clear at this point in their career where they are going to excel the most, but with Wetwiska it is still uncertain where he will have his biggest impact at the next level. The right-hander sits in the mid 80s with a ton of strikes and impressive off-speed on the mound. As a position player, the right-handed hitter runs a sub 7 60, shows a 95 exit velo in BP, and is 90 from the outfield.



Owen Bailor LHP / 1B / Bixby, OK / 2023

Like physical left-handers with some velo that throw strikes? We do too. That's why Owen Bailor jumps up 8 spots after an impressive showing at the 6-foot-5 left-hander showed feel for the zone in the mid 80s. Bailor has shown his stuff plays in game too, helping Bixby to one of the best starts in the state. 

RJ Jackson 1B / Choctaw, OK / 2023

A high profile football talent, Jackson is making big noise on the diamond as well this year. The right-handed hitter bats in the middle of one of the most stacked lineups in the state and is producing. Physically impressive, Jackson moves well for his size and could continue to shoot up the rankings as he polishes his game. 




Gage Gundy 1B / Stillwater, OK / 2023

Easily some of the most impressive raw power in the state, Gundy has obvious football ties, but has been making a huge impact in the middle of Stillwater's high powered offensive. Gundy posses the type of strength that allows him to miss hit balls out of the yard at times. If Gundy wants to stay on the diamond, he will be a huge get for someone at the next level with his physicality and leadership qualities.



Noah Smith 3B / RHP / Piedmont, OK / 2023

Smith sees his name jump four spots in the rankings, and with a class that is getting much better as a whole, that is not to be ignored. The physical corner infielder, shows all the tools to be successful at the next level. Smith had one of the most consistent rounds of BP at the OK Preseason All-State not only showing and exit velo up to 92 but posting an impressive average exit velo of 86.

Luke Schimmels OF / RHP / Deer Creek , OK / 2023

The strong bodied right-handed hitter and arm jumps three spots in our rankings after seeing an improvement to all of his positional numbers and making a jump on the mound. Schimmels is hitting in the middle of the order for the high-powered Deer Creek and was up to 87 in his first outing of the year on the mound.
