MD/DE Class of 2025 Rankings: Top 50
August 30, 2023
We are extremely excited to announce our newest update to our MD/DE Class of 2025 Rankings with a look at the Top 50. Earlier in the week, our staff broke down new faces and risers throughout the class, all leading to the release of our Top 150 players on Thursday. Below, we reveal the Top 10, a link to the Top 50 and take a look at key players who make a significant jump in this update.
Holding onto the No. 1 spot, NC State recruit Aidan West (Long Reach HS) continues to propel his game to new heights and has made himself known as a marquee player not only in the state, but the country as a whole. Added physicality, now standing at a strong 6-foot-2, 190 pounds has excelled the shortstops game in all facets and makes the hit tool even more of a threat. A really nice look at this years Mid-Atlantic Procase, following a stellar summer circuit has solidified West at the top of this loaded class in Maryland.

Making his first appearance in the Top 10, corner infielder Casey Carpenter (John Carroll HS) is one of the biggest offensive powerhouses in the state and showcased the consistent hit tool at this years PBR Future Games. The ability to hit for strength to all fields is advanced and continues to progress as muscle and maturity is added to the 6-foot-2, 190 pound frame.

Sliding into the Top 15, two-way Tulane University recruit Charlie Buckles (The Bullis School) showcased the hit tool in a massive way at our Mid-Atlantic Procase earlier this month. The ability to consistently find the barrel with controlled pull side power is special, and possessing a massive 6-foot-6, 210 pound frame bodes well for the future at the dish. A developing arsenal on the bump, backed by explosive offensive capabilities makes Buckles a "can't miss" player to watch in 2024.
