With the spring season having come to a close, and another 100+ games under PBR Oklahoma’s belt, it is time to update the 2017 Class rankings and roll out our last edition for this class. With all the players seen this spring, the rankings have been expanded to the top 225 players.

Top 5

Staying at the head of the class is SS Ryan Vilade (Stillwater HS, OK). The Oklahoma State recruit has continued to show elite pop at the plate, speed on the base paths, a strong arm at shortstop, and the ability to stay on the dirt for the foreseeable future. Close behind is OF Conner Uselton (Southmoore HS, OK). Anther Oklahoma State commit, Uselton is a five-tool player whose long and athletic frame would fit right in at the pro level today. An Oklahoma recruit, RHP/SS Cade Cavalli (Bixby HS, OK) moves up to the number three spot after returning to play at the end of the spring. The two-way prospect features a mid 90s fastball, excellent slider to go with an impressive frame packed with strength. He also has high-end pop at the dish. At No. 4 is another Oklahoma State recruit in C Jake Taylor (Shawnee HS, OK). A player long known in the state, Taylor jumped onto the radar of every MLB team with his outstanding performance at the Super 60 this winter and has continued to see his stock rise as he led his high school team to an undefeated season and a final No. 1 ranking in multiple national polls. Rounding out the top five is LHP Mitchell Stone (Deer Creek HS, OK), also an Oklahoma State recruit. The 6-foot-9, 240-pound left-hander will toss a fastball that touches 90 and he has shown exceptional command of three pitches at times this year.

The Risers

During the spring, a number of prospects have shown they deserved to move up in the rankings. Many prospects made a jump and a few in particular really took their game to the next level.

SS Brett Owen (Blanchard HS), a Kansas State recruit,  moves up 14 spots to No. 13 after adding some strength and proving he was not just a elite speed threat at the top of the lineup, but also a polished hitter that could do damage at the next level.

OF Dom Trevino (Edmond Santa Fe HS), an NOC Tonkawa commit, climbed 31 spots to No. 38 with the addition of some strength and a proven ability to hit to go along with his speed and small-ball game.

RHP/1B Brett Reaxroad (Mustang HS), a Rose State commit, moves up 62 spots to 57 after going 10-0 this spring for the state champion Mustangs, thanks in large part to commanding three pitches with deception.

3B/RHP Landon Hulett (Broken Arrow HS), a Fort Scott JC commit, rose 80 spots to 74 as he proved that he will not only be a consistent arm on the mound, but can be a true table setter at the top of the order and a high-level infield defender the next level.

The Newcomers

There were many newcomers to the list. Here are a few notable uncommitted additions: OF Justin Smith (Bixby HS), RHP Keith Traylor (Tuttle HS), RHP Ethan Self (Moore HS), 3B Dawson Hogner (Oktaha HS) and 3B Noah Ellis (Piedmont HS).
