It is with great excitement that we release to you today, our most recent update to the Virginia/DC Class of 2025 rankings with our Top 25 release. Following today's Top 25 release, we will unveil the Top 75 on Tuesday, and Top 150 on Wednesday. Following the release of our expanded 2025 rankings, we will highlight new faces and big risers on Thursday and Friday. 

Staying put at #1 is Donavan Jeffrey (Manchester). The now Miami commit was a member of Team Mid-Atlantic this summer at the Future Games and displayed his big in game power. 

The rest of the Top 10 remains in tact, but we want to point out two Top 5 arms. #3 Patrick Dudley (South Carolina) and #4 Jackson Garland (UVA) remain in the same positions, but continue to make strides on the mound. Dudley added polish to the already advanced delivery and the 6-foot-4 left-hander has taken some small steps forward in the velo department.

Garland was impressive this spring and continued that this summer and fall where he had a big outing in front of our national scouts. The fastball has maintained in the mid 80's throughout the fall and we anticipate that number to continue to creep up. Polish, moxie, spin, and competes are all words to describe the Virginia recruit. 

Another Power 5 committed arm that we wanted to point out is Atlee right-hander Noah Yoder. Yoder makes a climb into the Top 25, after being right outside of it on our last update. The Duke recruit made some strides this fall in the velo department and still has some rawness to him and room to add polish, which makes him very intriguing. At the Atlee High School Scout Day this fall the 6-foot-4 Yoder sat mid-upper 80's and flashed a 92. The long lanky frame, funkiness, and his effectively wild control make for some very uncomfortable at bats. Yoder does not necessarily walk many people, but it is more of a control arm and it makes for some uneasy takes and swings from hitters. He is an arm that could sky rocket in the rankings over the next year as he continues to master his craft.
