The updated Maryland Class of 2019 Rankings were released last week and expanded to include the top 120 players from across the Old Line State. Today we take a look at the fresh faces in the new look Class of 2019 Rankings.

Two recent college commits top the list of thirty-one new faces beginning with Huntingtown HS two-way talent Ryan Terrents. The Towson University commit had a good day at the Maryland Top Prospect Games last month and vaults to No. 17 with his ability to both pitch and play shortstop. Just behind Terrents at No. 20 is Liberty University commit, LHP Mason Fluharty of the 2018 Delaware State Champion Cape Henlopen HS Vikings.

Five more pitchers (two lefties and three righties) broke into the Top 40 in the latest rankings. Pete Marchineck of Calvert Hall turned heads at last month’s Top Prospect Games flashing 85 mph from the left side and comes in at No. 30. Another lefty making a big jump is Glenelg Country School’s Tyler Russo. Russo committed last week to Towson University and slides into our No. 34 spot. A trio of righties round out the Top 40 with Austin Simms (McDonough No.35), Josh Olsufka (Marriotts Ridge No. 39), and Brendan Foster (Howard, No. 40).

Top 50 newcomers include three position players: Wake Forest commit, shortstop Pierce Bennett of Gilman (No. 41). Linganore catcher Jake Ference and Middletown shortstop Cole Crist jump to No. 42 and No. 46 respectively.
