As always, the evaluation process is a fluid and ongoing process with multiple viewings in order to get the best feel for players abilities. It’s important to note that as players continue their development some show marked improvement at a much more rapid pace. That doesn’t indicate that other players got worse or went backwards, it’s just how player development works. As the year unfolds, players make improvements and new prospects pop up on the radar expanding the PBR rankings universe. In addition to the evaluations of players, our scouts, both those in Georgia and nationally, have also had multiple discussions with each other to review our individual lists and then make adjustments based on what we've each seen.

The Top 10

Keon Johnson SS / RHP / First Presbyterian Day, GA / 2026



Matthew Sharman RHP / SS / Etowah, GA / 2026

(4/4/24) The top two-way player in the 2026 class continues to look polished beyond his years with a sky-high ceiling to match. It starts with the operation on the mound where Sharman shows advanced body control while getting downhill with plus extension. Fastball up to 92 in this outing, living 88-91 over a strong 6.0 IP. Shows command to land to both sides of the plate paired with sharp arm-side run for in-zone misses. Mixed in a pair of breaking balls in this outing with a curveball at 75-77 with depth that worked well on the inner half to right-handed hitters and high-70s sweeper that created swing and miss to both sides. Changeup is a budding above-average pitch out of the same fastball tunnel at 79-81 with arm-side fade and depth. The sophomore picked up more barrels at the plate as well coming through with multiple big hits for the Eagles over the week. Present bat speed and feel for the barrel in an advanced approach allows the Georgia commit to find loud contact in the zone regularly. Sharman will be a nation-wide name as he develops into one of the most well-rounded players in the class.

Deion Cole OF / OF / Etowah, GA / 2026

Connor Langdon LHP / Perry, GA / 2026

Ty Tillery RHP / SS / Morgan County High School, GA / 2026

Reiston Durham SS / 2B / Dacula , GA / 2026

(4/27/24) First look at the former Future Games standout this spring, and gives a meaning to the term “what they look like”. Still just 15 years old, Durham has matured quickly, adding significant lean muscle to a broad-shouldered 6-foot-1, 175-pound frame. The uncommitted sophomore works short-to-long while creating good separation and leverage. Potential for good pull-side power as the frame continues to get stronger and present bat speed. Plus athlete in the dirt with flexibility in the lower half and advanced footwork moving laterally. Arm strength across the diamond is easy with plenty of carry. Most impressive part of the game is the foot speed improving after adding the muscle, flashing plus run times with a 4.00 on a bunt single. The ceiling is substantial for Durham and will be a hot name this summer among prospective colleges.

Colin White LHP / 1B / Harrison , GA / 2026

Blake Bryant OF / OF / Citizens Christian Academy, GA / 2026

Trevor Condon OF / 2B / Etowah High School, GA / 2026

(4/5/24) There's not too much more I can say about how good Condon has been this spring. The highly-twitchy and athletic outfielder has done nothing but hit in every situation and that didn't change at Battle for Bartow. The Miami commit does an excellent job of staying balanced at the plate from an approach that incorporates many moving parts. There's an innate feel for the barrel with ability to match plane seemingly anywhere in the zone. You pair that with above-average bat speed and it allows the lean 6-foot-1, 170-pound frame to create hard-hit contact without selling out. Present high-level run tool with an exceptional first step and ability to reach top speed quickly, put down a pair of sub-4.2 home-to-first times over the week as well. Very strong glove in the outfield with tools to play at all three positions, and holds a significant ceiling in centerfield once handed the reins next spring. High floor, high ceiling for Condon and the profile just keeps getting better.

Biggest Movers 

Trevor Condon, OF, Etowah
It was a standout spring campaign for Condon that ended with a huge showing in the 6A State Championship with Etowah. The combination of twitch and advanced bat-to-ball skills really stood out with the ability to impact the game in a handful of ways. A present above-average runner who’s flashed both sub-4.0 home-to-first times from the left side, showing potential to be a future plus tool. Impact defense in the outfield with ability to cover immense ground paired with present arm strength that can profile at three positions with ease. With a jump into the Top 10, Condon has firmly placed himself as one of the top outfielders in the state.

Martin Shelar, OF, Marist
Already one of the most physically imposing players in the class, Shelar has really started to put together a really well-rounded profile that continues to show up in-game. With top-of-the-class bat speed and excellent feel for the barrel, the outfielder generates hard-hit batted balls (95+ EV) with seemingly every barrel. The leverage he creates through the zone allows Shelar to get easy carry to all-fields with significant power projection remaining. An easy mover in the outfield with range and huge present arm strength that plays up with above-average accuracy. Hard not to find a projectable tool in the profile, and when combined with the production, Shelar offers one of the higher ceilings in the class.

Ashton Roache, 3B, Tallulah Falls
The tooled-up Bahamian outfielder has been on an upward trend since last spring, and really showed the upside this year in the midst of a State Championship berth with Tallulah Falls. With a tapered, broad-shouldered 6-foot-0, 180-pounds, Roache looks the part at the hot corner with tools and actions to match plus arm strength and great lateral range. The carrying tool for Roache is the substantial raw power that stems from premium bat speed and strength in the frame allowing for the outfielder to find immense impact in the barrel and potential for a plus tool.

Reid Gainous, RHP, Thomas County Central
The stuff just continues to get better and better for the uncommitted RHP. After sitting 83-85 last spring, Gainous lived in the mid-to-high 80s throughout his sophomore season, running it up to 90 as we open up the summer. Ball jumps out of the hand with ride and run that can own the top half of the zone. Will mix in a pair of breaking balls for swing-and-miss with a 11-5 curveball in the low-70s and a shorter, gradual slider at 74-76 with some cutter-like action. Gainous repeats a compact arm action very well with strength and mobility in a physical 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame.

Johnson DuBose, 2B/SS, Greater Atlanta Christian
With a lean 6-foot-3 frame and budding hit tool in the middle infield, DuBose was one to really stand out throughout the spring. Armed with a line-drive approach, the uncommitted infielder does a great job matching plane on both spin and velocity to find barrels to all-fields. Present gap power, but more to project with plenty of room to mature physically. Good flexibility and range will keep DuBose in the dirt long-term, and could have the positional flexibility to play 2B, SS, or 3B. Projectability makes DuBose a highly intriguing player in a strong 2026 class.

Drew Abney, C, Pope
In yet another Final Four run for the Pope Greyhounds, Abney made impressive strides in almost every aspect of his game this spring. With a sweet left-handed cut, the uncommitted backstop was able to tap into his massive raw power in-game at higher clip from improved pitch selection and uphill bat path that is paired with the present above-average bat speed. Showed an advanced defensive profile with receiving and blocking making big strides, as well as catch and throw skills remaining high-level. In a strong 2026 catching class, Abney is making the moves to place himself among the top names in that group.

Walker Killimett, OF, Walton
The uncommitted Walton centerfielder emerged as one to watch in the winter and then proceeded to shine throughout a very productive spring. A dynamic defender in center with range in all directions that’s strengthened by an above-average run tool and ability to cover ground quickly. At the plate, Killimett utilizes a compact right-handed swing with an efficient path to the ball. Works gap to gap where his speed can thrive while showing impressive bat-to-ball in the process. Speed and defense carry the profile for Killimett but the hit tool is what can push him among some of the better outfielders in the class.

Vernon Woodard, C, Grayson
A spring that started on JV ended with an all-sophomore nomination and 7A state championship berth with Grayson for Woodard. Showing above-average bat-to-ball from the left side, the uncommitted backstop flashed a budding hit tool that can be a carrying tool long-term. Defensively, Woodard continues to make strides as a receiver with good flexibility in the crouch and athleticism to block. Arm strength is very real behind the plate as well with consistent on-line accuracy. Could be a loud summer away from pushing himself into the top 50 players in the class.

Trey Luke, LHP/OF, Rockmart
Emerging as one of the top two-way underclassmen in North Georgia, the uncommitted lefty was a major factor in Rockmart’s final four run. As an arm, Luke deploys a heavy mid-to-upper 80s with sink and run that he commands very well in the zone. Low-70s curveball is a swing-and-miss pitch creating late depth that misses bats at will. Has begun to mix in a mid-70s changeup recently with good arm-side fade to round a strong mix. Equally impressive at the plate with an innate feel for the zone and advanced barrel accuracy in a linear bat path. Luke shows electric hand speed with the ability to match plane throughout the zone with ease. There’s real ability to run with tools in CF as well for Luke that completely a profile that seemingly checks a lot of boxes.

Kaleb Binion, 1B/OF, Carrollton
Binion made a statement in the middle of a potent Carrollton lineup throughout the spring. With a simple approach from the left-side, Binion shows limited wasted movements in a compact, well-leveraged swing. The uncommitted first baseman shows advanced accuracy in the barrel that allows Binion to find impact in all counts with significant pull-side power. Quality glove both at first and at both corner outfield spots with a chance for above-average at 1B where the athleticism and range sticks out.
