There are plenty of uncommitted players remaining in the 2025 class, but these players have set themselves up well after the spring and summer that they had.

Take a look at the players below to see what stands out most about them and could push their recruitment over the top.

Stock Watch:

Noah Haught SS / RHP / Bishop O'Connell, VA / 2025

5-foot-11, 150-pound thin frame. Haught jumped into a strong O'Connell lineup and proved himself, from start to finish. Gradually made moves up in the lineup, showcasing a solid hit tool with the ability to use the whole field. Had a chance to see him multiple times in the spring and summer. The value starts with the advanced defensive ability. Lateral range, throw on the run, and while the arm strength is average to slightly above, it is his quick release and accuracy across that allows the arm to play a tick up. Was easy to see the defensive ability, but the offense has come a long way as well. Contact, line drives, and occasional doubles at the plate and works it to both gaps. This is one to get eyes on early this fall. 



Max Lawson SS / 2B / Briar Woods , VA / 2025

Lawson had a big spring at Briar Woods as the highlight of the offensive lineup. The bat carries the weight for this infielder. Swing has some uphill path, gap to gap carry, and a little extra juice to the pull side. Slightly above average hand speed at the plate and a whippy barrel that has some length through the zone. Above average arm strength from the left side and an average run tool. Has a chance to be an impact bat with some sneaky power.



Nic Morlang RHP / OF / First Colonial, VA / 2025

The 6-foot-3 right hander saw his stock soar after a late summer scout day in 2022. He has continued to add to the projectable frame. Velo continues to tick up, the arm works, and fills the zone with three pitches. Is one of the best remaining uncommitted 2025 arms that with his physical makeup, pitchability, and repertoire, offers some starter profile. 

Ben Pulliam OF / SS / Glen Allen, VA / 2025

6-foot-1, 185-pound athlete with proportional strength. Loud tools with corner outfield projection. Slightly above average runner, big arm in the outfield (90 mph), and above average hand speed. Raw power that has shown some ability to play to all fields and has the strength to mishit balls for extra bases. Had a big year for Glen Allen as a first year varsity player and has the tools to be an impact bat.  



Michael Williams RHP / SS / Cosby, VA / 2025

Williams' stock is soaring just as high as any other '25 in the state. Mid 80's fastball that has been up to 87 in front of our staff. His long, athletic 6-foot-2 frame has plenty of projection left and leaves much to dream on in terms of future. While Williams has shown some two-way potential, it is the mound that carries his future value. Flashes some command to the glove side and ability to spin for strikes. Will be one to keep a close eye on as the recruitment continues to heat up.
