Prep Baseball Report

Updated And Expanded 2021 Rankings

National Crosschecker

Equipped with a plethora of prospects with all sorts of impressive tools, the 2021 class is already shining on the national stage. Since the last update to the Overall Rankings, PBR’s “boots on the ground” have been hard at work, scouring the country for talent throughout winter workouts, and into the early spring. Because of the nearly 200 scouts nation-wide and their commitment to continuing to provide the most comprehensive and credible information in amateur baseball, the updated 2021 Overall Rankings was able to expand by 100 players.

It is important to note that the PBR Overall Rankings only reflect the states that we intimately cover. In the new update, we welcome the Pacific Northwest to the family as Oregon and Washington combined for 12 prospects on the list.

Luke Leto (Portage Central HS, MI), a Louisiana State recruit and do-it-all athlete, continues to hold down the No. 1 spot as the top prospect in the class, as he has since the list’s inception. Though he has the ability to run a fastball into the low 90s, Leto’s high ceiling as physical left-handed hitter with plus speed will likely be his calling card in the end. Possessing defined strength in the lower half of his 6-foot-2, 190-pound frame, he gets the most out of it while utilizing quick hands and strong wrists to drive the ball with authority to all fields. His athleticism should only provide for even more development in the future.

Luke Leto (March 2019)

CIF Blaze Jordan (Desoto Central HS, MS), a Mississippi State recruit, possesses the biggest raw-power in the class, and his refined approach to hitting allows him to dip into that power on more occasions than not. The 6-foot-1, 217-pounder sports a durable frame and nimble footwork. His balance and tracking capabilities stand out at a young age, and his ability to strike the baseball with force from a direct path will likely only get better before he exits high school.

Blaze Jordan (March 2019)

Moving up to No. 3 on the list is flame-throwing RHP Alejandro Rosario (Miami Christian HS, FL). Though just 6 feet, 170 pounds, Rosario has been up to 97 mph on multiple occasions this spring while sitting 91-95 with both a sharp 74-75 breaking ball and darting split-finger (76-77). The Miami recruit still shows plenty of upside, especially as his frame continues filling out.

Alejandro Rosario (March 2019)

At No. 4, SS/RHP Brady House (Winder-Barrow HS, GA), a Tennessee recruit, is physically mature at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds with defined strength throughout a broad-shouldered frame. His high IQ on the diamond only helps to elevate his elite athleticism, and he shows signs of continuing as a middle-of-the-order bat moving forward though he also can run it up there on the mound where his competitiveness allows him to find plenty of success.

Brady House (March 2019)

Rounding out the top five is RHP Christian Little (Christian Brothers HS, MO), a Vanderbilt recruit. Little, now up to 92 mph with his fastball, has one of the highest-ceilings in the class, and has quickly developed a polished delivery that allows his loose, whippy arm to work freely in producing bigger velocities. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound right-hander has the makings of a future starter at the next level, and could make another big jump in the near future.

Christian Little (February 2019)

California and Texas each sport four players in the top 25 as both show early signs of having impressively strong classes. SS Jordan Lawlar (Jesuit HS, TX), a Vanderbilt recruit, enters the top 10 overall as one of the most exciting prospects in the class. His smooth defensive abilities will give him a chance to develop into a plus defender as his simple approach from the right side provides for gap-to-gap power. For California, SS Cody Schrier (JSerra Catholic HS, CA), a Southern California recruit, takes over the top spot in the state as a consummate “winner” whose athleticism, skill level, and instincts are elevated in the biggest situations. He is followed closely by San Diego product, SS Marcelo Mayer (Eastlake HS, CA), a Southern California recruit, and left-handed hitter who shows signs of sticking at shortstop at the next level, and imposing, 6-foot-3, 215-pound RHP Anthony Susac (Jesuit HS, CA), an Oregon State recruit, who bears down on hitters with a low 90s fastball that he counters with a swing and miss breaking ball and faded changeup.
