By Greg Williams
West Virginia Director of Scouting

Grant WellsAs we move into mid-December and the end of the calendar year draws near, it is time for our final update to our statewide player rankings for 2016. During the course of this month we will look at updates to the rankings in the Class of 2017, 2018 and 2019. Today we conclude with the Class of 2019.

The top spot in this class continues to be filled by George Washington shortstop Grant Wells (top right). The two-sport athlete is also drawing plenty of interest for his abilities on the football field as a quarterback. Fellow Patriot LHP Jonathan Blackwell (bottom right) follows at No. 2. The Coastal Carolina commit went 3-3 with a 3.03 ERA in 34 2/3 innings of work as a freshman.

Jonathan BlackwellThe Kanawha Valley is well represented in this update as 11 of the 20 players currently on the list hail from George Washington (4), Cabell Midland (4) and St. Albans (3).

While none of these prospects have announced a college commitment to date several have received interest from a number of schools with Maiolo drawing interest recently from a pair of Big Ten programs.
