Steve Nielsen
Scouting Supervisor

Its that time again, another class rankings update and this time it's the 2019s. Our 2019 Overall Rankings were updated last week with a few shakeups at the top. Wisconsin’s 2019s saw a similar edit with the top three getting a shuffle and expanding the state rankings from 70 to 80.

This time around, RHP Jack Washburn (Webster) takes his turn at the top. Since the last update the high-ceiling right-hander has committed to one of the top college programs in the country in Oregon State and made a big jump in the Overall Rankings. Our National Crosscheckers Nathan Rode and Shooter Hunt had big things to say about him as well in this week’s edition of Coffee & Curveballs.

RHP Hunter Rosenbaum (Webster) and C Nathan Stevens (Waunakee) round out the shuffled top three. Stevens had a whirlwind of a fall pulling double duty on the football field and the baseball field this fall. Stevens was busy winning a state title with the Warriors as one of the team’s kickers as well as making his rounds around the country with the Cincinnati Reds Scout Team this fall. His arm strength out of the crouch has been a separator along with his quick twitch hands at the plate.

Nathan Stevens 3.12.17

Outside of the top three, the rest of the top ten is status quo, but several intriguing prospects are knocking on the door of the top ten, including OF Jack Krumbach (Madison Memorial), SS Zach Lechnir (Kimberly), OF Drew Lechnir (Kimberly) and RHP Sean Barnard (Hudson), who is one of the top new additions to the rankings and we’ll touch on him more later in the week.
