Prep Baseball Florida Staff

Summer season is officially here. Summer is a crazy time in the high school baseball world especially down here in Florida. For the 2026 class, this is perhaps the most important summer of their life. Come August 1st, they’ll be allowed to communicate with college coaches. This summer, college coaches will be making their short lists of players to contact on August 1, so it's up to the players to make their names known.

With that being said, today we update our Class of 2026 state player rankings. See who made the biggest jumps this winter/spring.

Top 5 Analysis

The top player in the 2026 class is SS Jacob Lombard (Gulliver Prep). With pro bloodlines and a projectable 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame, Lombard has the makings of a top-tier shortstop at the next level.


At number two is LHP
Gio Rojas (Stoneman Douglas, Miami). Rojas moved from Colorado to Florida and was dominant this spring. Fastball up to 94 paired with a wipeout 2900 rpm slider. The 6-foot-2, 175 southpaw has front-line starter potential at the next level.

Brady Harris (TCA, Florida) has some of the best tools in this 2026 class. Physical 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame and still getting stronger. Hit and power tools are above average with power potential and real bat speed. Harris is a standout center fielder and has true 5-tool potential at the next level.

Coming in at number four is RHP
Ethan Wheeler (TCA, Florida). Wheeler is a smart and advanced right-hander at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds. Fastball up to 93 with feel for four pitches. Secondary stuff is above average and the pitchability continues to jump. Wheeler has front-line starter potential.

Rounding out the top five is 3B/RHP
Coleman Borthwick (South Walton, Auburn). Borthwick is 6-foot-6, 240 pounds and physically imposing. He has leaned out and added strength over the last year. Borthwick is an above-average defender for his size at third base and shouldn’t need to move to first. At the plate he has some of the best power potential in the entire class. On the mound, has been up to 94. Lots of two-way potential.

Uncommitted Names to Circle this Summer

Kaden Waechter (Jesuit) was a big part of Jesuit’s State Title run this spring. Added size and strength helped him run his fastball up to 91. Now sitting 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, Waechter is one of the top uncommitted two-way players available.

Jake Carbaugh (Plant City) is going to be a must-see uncommitted arm this summer. 6-foot-5, 195 pounds. Fastball up to 91 with ease. Slider and changeup are above-average swing and miss pitches.

Joey Lawson (Bishop Verot) had a monster spring as a two-way. .446 average with 19 extra-base hits. Lawson also ran the fastball up to 90 while posting a 1.62 ERA and 71 strikeouts.
