September 12, 2023
As the summer circuit wraps up, the 2026 class heads into their sophomore season after an eventful and significant couple of months. We highlight the newcomers and risers on the 2026 board, as our rankings expanded to a top-80 in our most recent update.
Last week, our staff officially updated our 2026 board, highlighting several of the state’s top prospects within our release. You can find that by clicking HERE.
We’ll dive deeper into the rankings themselves today, shining light on a handful of players that earned a spot on our board after showing well to our staff. Below you'll learn about a handful of prospects that either make their debut or a notable rise in our recent update.
Kealoha Kepoo-Sabate SS / RHP / Meadowdale, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 12
Kepoo-Sabate is a lean and athletic 6-foot-1, 170-pounds with ample room to continue adding mass. The sophomore put together a breakout 2023, launching himself into the top-15 in our recent rankings update. He has quick twitch, flashing bat speed with a barrel that whips through the zone. Defensively, he has a clean glove and smooth actions with the potential to stick on the left side of the dirt. Kepoo-Sabate also has shown two-way capabilities in the past, living in the low-to-mid 80s on the bump.
Kyle Rayment OF / RHP / Mt Spokane, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 32
From 6/28/23: "One of the more projectable 2-way talents we’ve been able to see in the ‘26 class so far. Wiry, lean athlete at 6’3, 165. Runs well with a 7.1 in the 60 and easy strides underway. Arm was up to 87 mph from the OF and at the plate he can really move through his core easily and produce line drive contact. Peak EV of 90.2. On the mound, the arm talent has a high ceiling as the FB ranged 84.5 - 85.4 with life and carry in the top of the zone. Shapes a hard, downer SL as main secondary. Over time, athleticism and strength should tighten up the delivery and help him make a significant jump with his pure stuff."
Jacob Chandler 3B / RHP / Union , WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 46
From 8/10/23: "Quality skill set with 2-way potential. Handled 3B with a consistent glove hand and easy exchange into accurate throws. Offensively showed consistent contact with an all fields approach and repeatable swing. Clean, easy operation on the mound with feel for commanding 3 pitches. FB up to 82 with easy effort. Has the look of a polished strike thrower."
Maxwell Schweyen RHP / 3B / Puyallup, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 48
Schweyen has a compact frame at 5-foot-11, 170-pounds with strength in his upper half. The athleticism is apparent as he moves well down the mound. He uses a long and loose arm action, operating from a high 3/4 window with some speed. The fastball sits in the low-80s, and he pairs it with a high-60s breaking ball and a low-70s changeup. He got a taste of varsity this past spring, and following a strong summer he debuts in our latest rankings update.
Michael Revell C / RHP / Richland, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 17
From 2/13/23: "One of the best combinations of size & athleticism we’ve seen in the ‘26 class so far. Revell has lean strength and wide shoulders at 6’3, 183 lbs. Frame offers significant projection. Arm strength plays from both 1B and C. He does a solid job as a taller C staying low/compact while receiving. Offensively possess a high ceiling with big power potential. Aggressive LH swing. Moves easily through core, hands accelerate late, strong at the point of contact. Big upside"
Trey Thompson RHP / 1B / Bainbridge , WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 20
From 2/13/23: "6’3, 180 lbs with a large frame showing advanced strength for his age. Started things off with a loud showing on the bump, reaching 86.5 on the FB and mixing in a heavy downer CB and late fading CH. Keeps arm path short/tight despite the long limbs in his delivery. Profiles well at 1B with bat speed/strength and has the potential to be a middle of the order bat. Gets added leverage from strong front side at contact."
Ryan Long C / OF / Eastside Catholic, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 31
Long is 5-foot-10, 165-pounds with some strength in his upper half. Offensively, he has strong hands that help him turn the barrel quickly. He's flashed bat speed in the past, posting a maximum of 70.5 mph and an average of 66.6 mph at the Seattle Preseason ID, both the best markings for a 2026 prospect in attendance. Defensively, he works quick out of the crouch with clean footwork and consistently posts sub-2.2 pop times. His best of 2.04 seconds ranked best amongst 2026 graduates in attendance at our Top Prospect Games in July.
Will Cooley OF / 1B / Lake Washington, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 41
Standing at 6-foot, 165-pounds, Cooley is an athletic left/left prospect with considerable room for projection. He was a standout at the Seattle Summer Open II. There, he ranked among the top of the roster with a 6.81 60-yard dash and a 20.5 mph maximum run speed. Both his 60-yard dash time and 10-yard split were amongst the top that we had seen at any of our Summer Open events. Following a strong 2023 campaign Cooley rises into the top-50 in our recent update.
Beckett Turnbow SS / RHP / Tahoma, WA / 2026
Rankings PBR Washington: 42
From 2/7/23:"Quick twitch, high energy athlete with versatility on the diamond. Turnbow has plenty of arm to handle both INF & OF duties and showcased clean actions from both spots. The feet really work on the INF and he maintains his tempo through the play. Offensively uses a controlled leg kick to get separation and stays inside of the ball well, working the gaps and keeping a line drive approach."
