The summer season is winding down, and the amount of Ohio talent that has made its way onto the national scene has been extremely fun to follow. The 2016 rankings have seen numerous additions over the summer months and will continue to see other additions as we get closer to the start of the 2016 high school baseball season.

We have released the updated 2016 rankings in advance of the 2015 Ohio Fall Prospect Program.

We have expanded the 2016 class to the top 250, below we will take a look at the "top of the class," the "newcomers," the "biggest risers" and the "top uncommitted players at their respected positions" within the 2016 class.

Top of the Class

With a newly updated 2016 player rankings comes a new number one atop the list. Cincinnati Moeller southpaw Nick Bennett (Louisville, pictured right) rises to the number one spot after a strong spring and summer. The lefty helped lead the Crusaders to another state championship as Bennett was dominant on the hill all spring, sitting 88-91 mph with the fastball while mixing in a mid-70s curveball and changeup.
