It has been several months since we last updated the Texas 2020 Class Rankings. With a full slate of Preseason PBR Events and the Texas high school regular season, we are proud to bring you the updated rankings for the sophomore class. As the depth and scope of this class begins to take shape, not much has changed among the top five, but there are noticeable risers in the class. For now, let’s take a look at the top 5.

+ Holding on to the No. 1 Ranking is SS/RHP Tanner Witt (Episcopal HS). Still uncommitted, Witt has an athletic, projectable, long-limbed frame at 6-foot-4, 185-pounds. As a two-way standout, Witt has smooth footwork and quick actions on the infield with a fast exchange and ability to play on the run. On the mound, the right-hander works from a high-¾ slot with a clean arm stroke. His fastball usually sits 88-90 mph, but there is more velocity to come in the future. Also has a good feel for both a curveball at 73-75 mph, and a changeup at 78-79 mph.

+ 2020 SS/RHP Masyn Winn (Kingwood HS) is already a household name in the recruiting world and is committed to Stanford University. Our scouting staff has seen him on several occasions throughout the past year. His fastball sat 90-91 mph with late life and gitty-up. His slider is a wipeout pitch 76-79 mph with tight rotation and sharp 11/5 depth. The right-hander also mixes in a 78-79 mph changeup with fastball arm speed. On the infield, Winn has athletic, smooth actions and threw 93 mph across the diamond. Winn not only has the tools that separate him as one of the top players in the country, but the sophomore is also a true competitor, and the way he plays puts him ahead of his peers.

+ Remaining at No. 3 is Catcher Drew Romo (The Woodlands HS). The 5-foot-11, 170-pound, LSU commit is an elite defender behind the plate with outstanding arm strength and true carry on throws to second base with sub-2.0 pop times. Last season, Romo started at shortstop for The Woodlands, showing his athleticism and versatility. At the plate, the switch-hitter has a balanced, athletic swing, and a great feel for hitting.

+ Coming in at No. 4 is another talented two-way player in SS/RHP Aaron Nixon (McCallen HS). Nixon is a polished shortstop with a powerful bat. The Texas commit, stands 6-feet, 190-pounds and can pitch in the low-90’s.

+ Taking the No. 5 spot in our ranking is TCU commit, RHP/1B Cam Brown (Flower Mound HS). Brown stands 6-foot-2, 190-pounds with a strong pitchers frame and a ton of upside. We saw the sophomore hit all fall in the Metro Scout League, and we have seen him pitch several times in the early spring season. The right-hander works from a ¾ slot with a loose, ultra quick arm stroke and athletic delivery. His fastball has late arm side run and usually sits in the 87-89 range.
