LOS ANGELES, CALIF. - As we recently released our updated Class of 2020 state rankings we thought we'd provide you a closer look at a few of these prospects. Rankings are never easy and we certainly know they are not an exact science. Much of rankings is predicated on what our team of scouts have seen, but given the national scope of the Prep Baseball Report network, we are more than able to access a library of over 100,00 players nationwide to compare apples-to-apples.

It's a given that California is either 1 or 1a in terms of talent in any given year. There isn't that much debate as to who the top players are because they've generally been identified at a much younger age. After all, the top players are easily identified.

However, given the amount of games, innings, at-bats, and pitches our team has seen over the last two-to-three years of watching this class, we feel confident knowing that nobody in the industry has seen more players in addition to those easily identified from California than our collective team. 

And because of that level of confidence we feel our rankings best reflect the overall talent in the state.

Below is a look at a few of the top ranked outfielders in the state for 2020 class. You can read full available scouting reports and view available video by clicking on the the player name.

THE PLAYERS

Top of the class defender with power, elite speed, and the ability to manipulate the barrel at the plate. Plays the game on a different level than most of his peers at the high school level. 

#12 PETEY HALPIN - MIRA COSTA HS - TEXAS SIGNEE

Since moving to SoCal last fall nobody has MLB scouts attention more than Halpin. Elite defender with plus speed and developing power. Showed very well last summer he can handle the bat.

#14 JAKE VOGEL - HUNTINGTON BEACH HS - UCLA SIGNEE

Elite speed with powerful bat in a compact, durable frame that stay in CF. Was showing big, consistent power this spring making him one of the early risers in the state from a draft perspective. 

#30 NATHAN NANKIL - BONITA VISTA HS - CAL STATE FULLERTON SIGNEE

Rangy, athletic outfielder with a strong, accurate arm and high level defensive instincts. Bat has shown consistent improvement year-to-year. Frame projects for addition of mass.

#35 JAG BURDEN - HUNTINGTON BEACH HS - CAL SIGNEE

High level defender with a powerful arm that's perfect for right field. Has sneaky power from the left side while maintaining a consistent gap approach. Very high baseball IQ.
