It is with great excitement that we release to you today, our most recent update to the Virginia/DC Class of 2024 rankings with our Top 50 release. Following today's Top 50 release, we will unveil the Top 125 on Tuesday, and Top 225 on Wednesday. Following the release of our expanded 2024 rankings, we will highlight new faces and big risers on Thursday and Friday. 

Staying put at #1 is South Carolina Gamecock commit, Dalton Wentz. The 2021 Future Games alum continues to separate to prove why he is the best player in the state, and one of the top players in the country. 


Aiden Harris holds steady at #2 in the state. The Virginia commit has a strong combination of power at the plate and pitchability on the mound. He put both on display at the Mid-Atlantic State Games during the Committed Games portion of the event. 

We have two new faces inside the Top 10. Moving up four spots to #7 is 2022 Future Games alum, Callum Early. The James River (Midlothian) middle infielder displays a well above average run tool, versatile offensive skillset, and the ability to stay up the middle on the defensive side. Early is our top remaining uncommitted player in the 2024 class. 

Moving up a dozen spots to #8 is Virginia Tech commit, Lee Sowers. Sowers was a pivotal piece of the Douglas Freeman Mavericks, the 5A State Champions. The middle infielder exploded on the travel circuit this summer and fall, sending him skyrocketing up the rankings.
