PBR Louisiana 2025 State Rankings Update: Risers

Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Yesterday, we released our state rankings update, for the 2025 class, now that the fall season has come to an end.  Throughout the fall, we held several events, across different parts of the state, so that our staff could get eyes on as many prospects as possible.  We ended our fall schedule with our annual State Games event, on 09/30-10/01, at Alex Box Stadium, which gave us the opportunity to evaluate many prospects that we've seen over the last 2-3 years, as well as new faces that have made jumps later in their high school careers.  Our state rankings list for the 2025 class expanded to 225 players in total for this update, and there were plenty of movers and shakers throughout the list.  Today, we take a look at a few guys that have moved up in this rankings update.  


+ 2025 LHP Adam Guillet (Natchitoches Central HS)

Projectable and durable 6'3" 190 lbs. frame.  The Natchitoches Central product made a splash at our annual State Games event this fall, thanks to an 85-89 mph heater, with ridiculous spin rates up to 2666 RPM's.  His 72-75 mph CB had good shape and induced several swings & misses at the bottom of the zone.  Guillet gained a lot of traction coming out of the State Games with college programs and recently announced his verbal commitment to Louisiana Tech University.  

+ 2025 C Dylan Champagne (Dutchtown HS)

We first saw Champagne earlier this year, at our Baton Rouge Preseason ID, in Zachary, LA, and we liked what we saw then.  Fast-forward to this year's State Games event, and it was noticeable that he's put on weight and added physicality, which has helped his overall game.  The Dutchtown HS product showed good actions behind the dish with pop times of 1.95-2.02 and a positional velocity of 77 mph, which was good for a +5 mph jump from January.  He also took quality at-bats all weekend and was on time and on the barrel.  6'3" left-handed hitting catchers don't grow on trees, so we fully expect Champagne to have a big-time junior campaign this spring.

+ 2025 MIF/OF Rowen Bergeron (Opelousas Catholic HS)

Like many on this list of riser, Bergeron was another guy that greatly benefited from our State Games event this fall at LSU.  The first thing that stands out with him is his athletic and physical 6'1" 190 lbs. frame.  Bergeron showed that he was a good runner as well, even on a slower track, as he posted a 6.94 laser-timed 60.  His bat, however, was what really stood out, as he took arguably the loudest BP round of the day, while recording an event-best 101 mph max exit velocity, and it carried over in game, as he laced a pull-side triple during one of his at-bats.  Bergeron should be a "must-see" prospect this spring for college programs looking to add an athletic infielder with real bat speed.

+ 2025 RHP Samuel Mitchell (Parkview Baptist HS)

We've penciled in the Eagles as a team that we absolutely have to see this spring, thanks to a plethora of prospects, especiallly on the mound, and Mitchell is definitely one of those guys.  Wiry 6'1" 165 lbs. frame with plenty of room to add strength; Mitchell is an athletic mover down the slope with a loose and easy arm action.  He worked with a quick and uptempo pace at this year's State Games and saw a lot of IZM's with his 83-87 mph FB, which he paired well with a 73-75 mph SL with some sweep.  What's most exciting about Mitchell is his age, as he just turned 16 years old this fall, which should excite college recruiters looking to add an arm in the 2025 class.  

+ 2025 MIF/OF Mason Canter (Central Lafourche HS)

Athletic and wiry 5'11" 160 lbs. frame with more strength on the way.  The Central Lafourche product showed a smooth and repeatable left-handed stroke at this year's State Games with present bat speed.  Canter showed quick hands through the zone, and that was verified by his 24.1 mph avg. hand speed, via Blast Motion, which was good for second-best at the event.  He also showed smooth and crisp actions on the dirt, while also showing the ability to play the outfield, offering up positional versatility.  After his State Games performance this fall, Canter announced his verabal commitment to the defending Southland Conference Champions in Nicholls State.
