Prep Baseball Report

2025 Overall Rankings Update

Shooter Hunt
Vice President, Scouting

When the blockbuster news of the summer broke that the top player in the 2025 class, SS/RHP Konnor Griffin (Jackson Prep, MS), had reclassified to 2024, it left a vacancy in the No. 1 spot. Weeks of internal debate amongst the numerous scouts in the PBR network produced multiple names that were each deserving. Some hold immense upside on the mound as future frontline starters. Others defend up the middle with exciting athleticism and massive offensive potential. Still more, as is seen in many budding prospects, some carry intriguing upside in all facets of the game as two-way performers.


A look at the Top 10:

1 Ethan Holliday OK Stillwater 2025 3B Oklahoma State
2 Cameron Caminiti AZ Saguaro 2025 OF Louisiana State
3 Jacob Kendall FL Bartram Trail 2025 SS Florida
4 Samuel Cozart NC Wesleyan Christian Academy 2025 RHP Mississippi State
5 Noah Franco FL IMG Academy 2025 LHP Mississippi State
6 Landon Schaefer AR Fayetteville 2025 SS Arkansas
7 Sean Gamble FL IMG Academy 2025 SS  
8 Dean Moss FL IMG Academy 2025 OF Vanderbilt
9 Michael Torres FL Doral Academy 2025 OF Miami
10 Vaughn Neckar CA Vista Murrieta 2025 3B Louisiana State


Ultimately, 3B Ethan Holliday (Stillwater HS, OK), an Oklahoma State recruit, emerged as the top player. The son of an MLB All-Star (Matt Holliday), and the younger brother of potential first overall pick in the upcoming MLB Draft (Jackson Holliday), the left-handed hitting slugger hardly found himself in any shadow this spring. Long and lean at 6-foot-2, 170 pounds with a swing that might be even sweeter than his brother’s, Holliday put together a stout varsity season hitting .363 with 10 home runs and 12 doubles. The advanced balance and barrel accuracy combined with effortless ability to cover the plate combine with what is sure to be a more physical frame in coming years to produce an exciting middle-of-the-order follow and potential impact bat. Of course, there is still much more development needed, but the ceiling is high, and it is sure to be fun watching his adjustments and advancements in coming years.

 Cam Caminiti (May 2022)

The decision at No. 1 was hardly an easy one, and the class remains fluid as players continue to develop at a rapid pace. LHP/OF Cam Caminiti (Saguaro HS, AZ), an LSU recruit, is the top arm in the class (as well as an excellent hitter), and could ultimately ascend to the top spot at some point over the next three years. Uber athletic with a pristine, 6-foot-2, 200-pound frame, the southpaw pumped fastballs up to 93 mph this spring to go along with a sharp, upper-70s slider that already put him in an elite class as one of the top arms in all of high school. His power stuff, athleticism, and mound presence should provide a path for future advancements, which is staggering given the already impressive stuff.

Jacob Kendall (March 2022)

SS Jacob Kendall (Bartram Trail HS, FL), a Florida recruit, oozes potential thanks to a wiry-athletic 6-foot, 165-pound frame that will carry much more strength, yet already produces at a high level. There is some “it factor” to his presence on the field, even at a young age, and his knack for finding the barrel stands out as does his glove-to-hand ability on the dirt.

 Sam Cozart (April 2022)

RHP Sam Cozart (Wesleyan Christian Academy, NC), a Mississippi State recruit, comes from a strong baseball family, and has already exhibited an ability to get premium prospects of older classes out…and dominate. At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds with a workhorse frame that still projects, Cozart carries frontline stuff including a low-90s fastball and feel for four pitches. Constantly challenging himself against older competition, Cozart still shows signs of making bigger jumps in the future.

OF/LHP Noah Franco (IMG Academy, FL), a Mississippi State recruit, is as good of an athlete as the class holds, and pads his statline with elite metrics. Standing 6-foot-3, 185 pounds with wide shoulders and room to add more, Franco produces electricity in everything that he does. A 6.6-runner with a quick, whippy arm that runs a fastball up over 91 mph, and leverages a long frame to produce eye-opening power from the left side, Franco can do it all. Whichever side of the ball, or even if it’s both, the upside is exciting and warrants close attention.
