Missouri 2025 Rankings: Update

By: Kevin Moulder & Diego Solares
PBR Missouri Staff

After the winter circuit, and with the Missouri high school season coming to a close, our staff has updated the state’s 2025 rankings as the summer is set to start. We’ve expanded the list, adding names that have impressed us throughout the last handful of months, and we’ve also seen some significant movement on our board as a result.

Like its predecessors, this class is shaping up to be a dynamic, high-impact group that features numerous prospects at the top that should draw buzz from professional scouts, as well as several notable prospects and high-end uncommitted follows scattered from top to bottom. 

Below we’ve detailed some movement towards the top, and we’ll have more pieces to follow these rankings in the coming days, such as risers and fresh faces that debuted for the first time.


+ There’s a new No. 1 in this update, as Arkansas commit and PBR Future Games alum RHP/SS Jordan Martin (2025) jumps to the top of our rankings. Martin’s physical stature is as projectable as they come, standing at a lean, lanky 6-foot-5, 200-pounds with plenty of room to fill out further. A standout basketball player on a Jefferson City squad that finished third in state this winter, Martin’s an easy upper-80s arm that dominated in our lone look this spring, and we’ve heard that he’s climbed into the low-90s on the mound as of late with a firm turbo-like cutter to boot. Set to rise in the national rankings too, Martin’s ceiling rivals that of any name in the Midwest, and he’s almost certain to grab professional attention throughout his high school career.

Jordan Martin

+ The second, third, and fourth spot on our board are held by INF Ty Thompson (Rock Bridge, 2025; Tennessee commit), OF Sebastian Norman (Glendale, 2025; Oklahoma State commit), and RHP Tyler Wood (Lee’s Summit West, 2025; Tennessee commit), respectively. All three of them are playing key roles on top-seeded teams with the playoffs underway:

+ Thompson is a do-it-all type of player with a wiry, upside projectable frame and a skill-set that positively impacts the game in all aspects. His knack for contact and bat-to-ball skills are evident, which play up in particular given the fact that he’s amongst the fastest runners in the class. Defensively, Thompson’s an asset at shortstop, a spot that he’s played at an advanced clip throughout his amateur career. He’s also served in a positive capacity on the mound for the Bruins this spring with a fast, lively arm that’s reportedly produced some high-end velocity this spring.

Ty Thompson

+ Norman doesn’t lack any size or physicality by any means, boasting a professional 6-foot-2, 215-pound frame with imposing strength throughout. His combination of sheer power and speed (6.43 60) rivals that of anyone in the nation, and he thoroughly impressed our scouts in a brief look this spring, collecting three loud hits from a short, yet explosive, swing.

Sebastian Norman

+ Wood’s arm talent is undeniable, as the 6-foot-3, 190-pound sophomore was up to 94 mph this winter and pitching in the low-90s before committing to Tennessee shortly afterwards. His stuff is amongst the loudest in the state, regardless of class, and his athleticism only adds to the future appeal he’ll bring to the mound - he’s a 6.76 runner with a 30.8 inch vertical to pair.

+ OF Leo Humbert (Francis Howell, 2025) rises a handful of spots in this update, now slotting at fifth overall on our board. Humbert packs plenty of explosiveness within a physically imposing 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame, and he’s once again headlining one of the state’s best offenses offensively, slashing .368/.477/.660 with eight doubles, seven triples, three home runs, and 27 RBIs this spring. He’s as good of a hitter as you’ll find in the St. Louis’ area, and his sheer strength paired with advanced speed makes him a threat in all aspects while also keeping him in center field long term. Still uncommitted, Humbert enters a big summer with plenty of positive momentum behind him.

Leo Humbert

+ RHP Richie Swain (Timberland, 2025) has some of the loudest stuff in the class, and the 6-foot-4, 185-pound right-hander rounds out the top-10 on our newly updated board. Swain owns one of the most devastating fastballs in the state, garnering plenty of whiffs with natural life and carry up in the zone with upper-80s to low-90s heat to back it up. He spins a power breaking ball too and, while he’s still developing some consistency to it, it has real swing-and-miss potential to it when it’s right. His ability to miss bats has shown throughout the spring, as Swain’s racked up 45 strikeouts over 29 innings this spring for the Wolves. He’s another high-end uncommitted prospect to know in Missouri headed into the summer.

Richie Swain

+ Another high-end name to make some noise in this update is INF Caeden Cloud (Nixa, 2025), who makes his debut on these rankings within the top-15. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound up-the-middle athlete first popped up to our staff at the A’s Scout Day this winter, showcasing a loud skill-set in all areas of his game, including a 6.76 60 with a 96.8 mph peak exit velocity to pair. This spring, Cloud’s served as a true impact player for a Nixa team that’s been highly regarded by our staff throughout the season, batting in the middle of their order while starting at shortstop, too. His present tools factored in with physical upside and a certain presence to him as Cloud trending upward as his summer begins.
