West Virginia Class of 2016 Rankings Updated

Logan GoodnightFollowing an impressive performance at the PBR Super 60 Pro Showcase in Chicago earlier this month Penn State recruit Logan Goodnight (The Linsly School) returns to the top spot in the West Virginia Class of 2016 rankings.

Goodnight impressed with solid measurables across the board while displaying a soft glove hand and solid range with enough arm strength to play immediately on the left side of the infield. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound right-handed hitter has a quiet set-up and his hands work well through contact. He has some length to his frame and should continue to add strength. Add in Goodnight's 6.88 foot speed and it is easy to envision the Linsly School senior making an early impact as a Nittany Lion.

Matt HarrisonNitro High School outfielder Matt Harrison, a Marshall recruit, also turned in a solid performance in Chicago. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound right-handed hitter displayed power potential to all fields during a solid round of batting practice and ran a 7.11 60-yard dash, but has posted sub 7.0 times previously. Harrison moves well in the outfield and displayed enough arm strength to man either corner outfield position. His athletic actions and frame will likely also give him the opportunity to see time at first base in the future.

Rankings will be updated one final time after the completion of the high school season. Following is a look at the updated top ten prospects in the class.
