It is with great excitement that we release to you today, our full updated MD/DE Class of 2025 rankings with our Top 175 release. Following today's Full 175 release, we will unveil key names to follow in the class on Friday. Throughout this week we have highlighted new faces and risers whose stock has taken a jump in the past few months. 
Below, we take a look at three players to keep close eyes on heading into the winter months.

Seeing a rise inside the Top 100 of this update, corner infielder Dixon Monk showcased some of the more raw strength at the dish that our staff was able to get eyes on this Fall. Possessing a proportionally strong 5-foot-11, 190 pound frame, the Riverdale Baptist product exudes confidence at the dish and the pull side pop is eye-opening. Creating consistent lift with an uphill path, the ball explodes off a heavy barrel with controlled intent and shows the ability to cut it down when needed to backspin line drives to the gaps. 

After a standout performance at the Mid-Atlantic State Games, Dominic Hicks sees a rise inside the Top 75 for the first time. It's a lean 5-foot-11, 165 pound frame that looks to fill out, and as strength is added, look for the St. Mary's product to take his game to new heights. The approach is consistent at the dish, showcasing the ability to spray line drives to the middle with some occasional strength shown to the pull side gap. It's an above average run tool (6.83 60-yard) with developing arm strength from the outfield. 

Sliding inside the top 100 for the first time, uncommitted southpaw Caden Blanck first jumped onto the scene at the US Elite Scout Day in late August, leading to a standout performance on the bump at the PBR Virginia Fall Championships in September. It's a low 80's fastball that shows some late cut action, mixing two seperate, high spin breaking balls for strikes and developing feel for a changeup down in the zone. Still plenty left in the tank, there's a ton to dream on in the 6-foot-2, 180 pound frame and the free and easy arm action bodes well for future success.
