Fall Follows: 2025 Position Players

By: Diego Solares
Area Scout, Illinois & Missouri

This fall, the PBR Missouri staff traveled across the 'Show Me' state to host multiple fall events at various different locations. We greatly expanded our player base as a result, and this year's fall showcase calendar provided our staff an ample opportunity to deepen our knowledge on all of the state's current high school classes (2024-2027).

Now, with the off-season rapidly approaching, our staff will spend the next few weeks highlighting a multitude of players that impressed at our events across this most recent fall circuit.

Earlier this week, we highlighted a handful of uncommitted 2024 grads that caught our attention this fall, which you can find HERE.

We'll turn our attention to the state's 2025 class today, highlighting more than 30 current juniors in Missouri that came away as winners from this year's fall calendar.

Matthew Angel SS / Willard, MO / 2025

From 9/3/23: "...6-foot-2, 160-pound lean, high-waisted left-handed hitter. Ran a 7.11 60-yard dash with nearly 20 mph of run speed at peak. Some hand twitch from the left side, short and uphill path, looks to elevate to the pull-side. Showed an 85 mph arm across the infield at peak to pace all players in attendance."

Joe Heater 2B / Wellington Napolean , MO / 2025

From 9/10/23: "...Athletic 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame with strength. Showed tools across the board at the Yard Baseball Club Scout Day this fall. Fast right-handed swing with noticeable bat speed, stays short to contact with barrel feel and juice off it. Averaged 89.3 mph per batted ball, peaking at 94.9 mph. Also ran a 6.94 60 and was 90 mph from the outfied."

Reign Williams OF / Lees Summit, MO / 2025

From 9/10/23: "...5-foot-10, 185-pound left/left athlete that holds plenty of strength throughout his frame. Was one of the biggest winners from our summer circuit, earning an invite to the PBR Future Games as a result. Easy bat speed and athleticism at the plate, creates natural lift through contact from the left side of the plate. Barreled his firmest ball at 90.9 mph in this look, though has posted 96+ mph max exit velocities in front of our staff previously. Also a 6.73 runner in the 60-yard dash. A name-to-know left-handed hitter in Missouri's current junior class."

Garrison Hartsell C / Pleasant Hill, MO / 2025

From 9/10/23: "...strong, compact 5-foot-9, 180-pound athlete. Holds inherent bat strength from the right side with a long, flat barrel through contact that backspun the baseball gap-to-gap in this look. Averaged 88 mph per batted ball, one of the day's best marks, peaking at 93.5 mph, and he launched his furthest ball 364 feet, too. Ran a 6.92 60 and popped a 2.09 to the bag on his quickest throw from the chute."

Mason Stover 3B / Blue Springs South, MO / 2025

From 9/10/23: "...5-foot-10, 160-pounds. Rotational right-handed swing with hand speed, favored the pull-side in BP. Flashed feel for the barrel, posted a 91.3 mph max exit velocity and elevated his furthest batted ball 341 feet, per TrackMan. Active defender on the infield, ranges well on the move, touched 85 mph across the diamond."

Ethan Milius OF / Fulton, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...continues to look the part on both sides of the ball each time we see him. He’s a lean, fluid 6-foot-1, 160-pound athlete with ease and balance to all aspects of his game, starting at the plate, where he consistently sprayed line drives to the middle of the field throughout his round. Milius also ran one of the day’s fastest 60 times (6.91) and was up to 85 mph from the outfield, showing a clean, accurate arm and true ball. He hopped on the mound later on in the event and pitched in the low-80s, touching 84 mph, while showing a 67-70 mph curveball as well."

Tyler Coffin SS / Rockhurst, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...was one of the event’s biggest standouts, coming away from Columbia with plenty of positive momentum as the fall season continues. At 5-foot-11, 160-pounds, Coffin really looked the part at the plate, working line drives consistently to the pull-side from a balanced, fluid, and athletic right-handed swing. Defensively, Coffin’s an easy mover around the infield with fluid feet that break down in rhythm around the baseball. As he continues to tack on strength and mature, Coffin figures to be a name that keeps rising in the state’s 2025 class." 

Tucker Poe OF / Rockhurst, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...came away from this event with plenty of positive momentum after taking one of the more polished and impressive BP rounds. Poe, who’s built at a strong 6-foot, 190-pounds, worked deep into the left-center gap, from a strong, simple, and leveraged swing. Two of his batted balls traveled 350+ feet, four of them left his barrel at 91 mph, and he squared his firmest ball up at 95.1 mph."

Trevor Nelson 2B / Lathrop, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...came away from his PBR debut as a follow name in the state’s current junior class. Nelson, who’s an athletic 5-foot-10, 165-pounds, stayed level through the zone from the right side, finding the barrel to the pull-side throughout his round. Nelson’s hardest ball came off his bat at 92.8 mph and it traveled 346 feet, which was also his furthest batted ball."


Jackson Tankesley 1B / Liberty , MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...continues to trend up in the state’s junior class, showing well offensively yet again, this time in our trip to Atkins Field. The 6-foot, 185-pound right-handed hitter showed balance and polish at the plate from a clean, direct right-handed swing, using the whole field as a result. Tankesley’s a proven performer in-game offensively too, producing at Creekside earlier this summer."

Hayden Gilmore LHP / Kennett, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: " another physical left-handed hitter to know from this event that flashed noticeable pull-side power. Listed at 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, Gilmore comfortably parked two 340+ foot batted balls over the right field wall from a long, uphill stroke, swatting his furthest at an estimated 347 feet."


Brady Vessells C / Seckman , MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...built at a strong, compact 5-foot-10, 175-pounds, Vessels showed one of the day’s stronger right-handed swings. He worked mostly to the pull-side throughout his round, staying level through the zone with noticeable hand speed (25.4 mph) and bat speed (75.3 mph). Both his average (87 mph) and max (97 mph) exit velocity marks were towards the top of our batted ball leaderboards from this event."


Beau Neuburger 1B / Rockhurst, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...has always showed above-average bat strength to our staff, doing so across a handful of looks this summer, including at this event. Neuburger packs plenty of strength inside a 6-foot, 215-pound frame and he generates easy raw pull-side power as a result. His hardest ball jumped off his barrel at 95.1 mph in this event, traveling 354 feet deep into the left-center gap for one of the day’s furthest batted balls."

Bennett Greenhagen SS / Boonville, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: " an upside, loose-bodied 6-foot, 155-pound athlete that has impressed our staff over a few looks this year, most recently at this event. Greenhagen stays short and flat through the zone, rotating out of his load while favoring the pull-side. He’s a comfortable mover on the infield with athletic, rhythmic feet and a loose arm to pair, peaking at 85 mph across the diamond on his hardest bullet."

Adam Turner OF / Clayton, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...came away a winner from the St. Louis Open earlier this year and left another positive impression on our staff after this look. He’s a fluid, loose-bodied athlete with plenty of upside, standing at a lean, lanky 6-foot-2, 160-pounds. Turner’s an above-average runner that posted one of the day’s fastest 60 times (6.96) and does so rather effortlessly, suggesting that his speed will only continue to improve as he further matures physically. Offensively, Turner stayed up the middle of the field throughout his round, backspinning line drives from a simple all-around operation."

Jack Burle OF / Duchesne, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...looked the part offensively in his PBR event debut. The 6-foot, 175-pound left/left junior flashed gap-to-gap barrel feel in BP from a simple and direct swing, barreling his hardest ball up at 92.4 mph. Burle showed a true loose arm from the outfield, peaking at 85 mph from the outfield on his firmest bullet."

Thomas Dickinson 2B / Rock Bridge, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...was a name that showed well on both sides of the ball at Sunday’s event. The 5-foot-10, 175-pound junior worked mostly to the pull-side in BP, posting one of the day’s highest average exit velocity marks (86.9 mph), and squaring his hardest ball up at 94.1 mph in BP. He hopped on the mound later in the event and filled up the zone with a low-80s fastball, flashing feel to land a 72-73 mph curveball for strikes as well."

Cameron Cooper SS / Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...really looks the part in a uniform, standing at 6-foot-2, 190-pounds with strength throughout. Cooper kicked his day off by running a 6.94 60, one of the day’s fastest marks, and he was 87 mph across the infield to lead this upperclass group. Offensively, Cooper’s swing works with length through the zone and creates some backspin to the pull-side, reaching a peak exit velocity of 89.7 mph with a max batted distance of 322 feet."

Jared Chorlins 1B / Parkway Central, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: " a 6-foot-2, 185-pound left/left athlete that showed well both in BP and during the gameplay portion of this event. He showed easy pull-side power from an uphill left-handed stroke throughout his round, swatting a handful of batted balls over the right field wall, including a 356 foot peak. Chorlins productive day at the plate continued as the day went on, swatting a home run during live at-bats."


Isaiah Ogbe OF / Timberland, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: " an upside 6-foot-1, 170-pound athlete that showed more offensive polish in this look than we’d seen from him in the past. Ogbe’s loose hands worked short and direct to the baseball in BP, spraying line drives to left field as a result, and he peaked at 83 mph from the outfield."

Holt Gielow LHP / Eureka, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: " a 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete with an upside frame to follow from this event. Gielow recorded a 94.5 mph exit velocity at the plate and was up to 81 mph from a loose, long arm action."



Andy Hertlein 1B / Parkway South, MO / 2025

From 9/18/23: "...had one of the day’s highest exit velocity marks, using the strength inside a 6-foot-4, 240-pound frame to power his hardest ball up at 94.5 mph."



Mason Jeffers C / Liberty, MO / 2025

From 9/17/23: "...6-foot-2, 195-pound frame with long, upside levers and well-proportioned strength. Simple, quiet right-handed swing, barrel stays in the zone on a level plane and uses the whole field. Quick to release behind the plate, 1.94-1.99 pops."

Evan Abbott OF / Staley, MO / 2025

From 9/1/723: "...6-foot-2, 180-pound frame with long, projectable limbs. Long strider, kicked his day off by running a 6.87 60 with a 1.69 10-yard split and 20.4 mph of run speed at peak. Flat left-handed barrel through the zone, gets on top of the baseball with a spray line drive approach. Athletic mover in the outfield, plays through the baseball."

Patrick McCool OF / Platte County, MO / 2025

From 9/17/23: "...lean, athletic, and projectable 6-foot, 160-pounds. Simple swing, hands work direct to contact with a level barrel through the zone, line drive feel. 6.89 runner."

Caeden Cloud SS / Nixa , MO / 2025

From 9/26/23: "...continued to solidify himself as a high-end name-to-know in not only Missouri’s junior class, but on a national scale, too. Cloud, who represented Team Missouri at the Future Games this past summer, holds present strength on a 6-foot, 175-pound frame, though he’s still plenty capable of adding more muscle mass. Cloud does a little bit of everything at a high level, starting with an easy, rhythmic right-handed swing that authoritatively impacts the baseball gap-to-gap. He jumped all over an inner-half heater for a triple in-game and blasted balls on repeat during BP, averaging 90.7 mph per swing with a 96.3 mph max exit velocity and 370 foot peak batted distance. Defensively, Cloud’s actions will keep him on the dirt moving forward, as he’s a fluid, free-flowing presence on the infield that pairs his soft hands with a natural internal clock. Everything comes easy to Cloud and he’s able to slow the game down naturally, which is a trait most upper-tier prospects possess."

Treyton Bowen OF / Belleville West, IL / 2025

From 9/26/23: "...came away from this event as a prospect to follow over in southern Illinois. Bowen carries lean muscle mass on an athletic 5-foot-10, 150-pound frame, and he ran the event’s second-fastest 60 time (6.83) on our lasers. Bowen swings a twitchy right-handed barrel, staying up the middle of the field for a large majority of his round with above-average batted ball data to pair. His comfort with covering the zone stood out, finding the barrel regularly (89%) in all quadrants, especially in the lower third. He posted an 86.3 mph average exit velocity, squaring his hardest ball up at 93.6 mph, and his furthest ball traveled 339 feet, too."

Parker Mann OF / Nixa, MO / 2025

From 9/26/23: "...Mann packs plenty of athleticism into a lean, yet strong, 5-foot-11, 160-pound frame. He’s a 6.85 runner with clean, athletic strides that showed bat strength to the pull-side in this look, elevating nearly every single ball that way, and sending his furthest 349 feet, per TrackMan."


Aidan Roland OF / Hillsboro , MO / 2025

From 9/26/23: "...Roland is a broader, more physically built 5-foot-9, 185-pound athlete with strength on both sides of the ball. He ran his fastball up to 84 mph on the mound (T2453 RPM) while showing a low-70s curveball at 2400+ RPM on average as well. Offensively, Roland squared up his loudest barrel at 98.9 mph, juicing his deepest ball down the left field line at an estimated 368 feet."



Matthew States 1B / Father Tolton Catholic, MO / 2025

From 9/29/23: "...continues to show a simple and polished approach at the plate. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound junior stayed on his barrel and up the middle throughout his round, backspinning baseballs from a smooth, level right-handed swing. He posted the second highest average exit velocity (90 mph) on the day, hitting his hardest ball at 95 mph, with a peak batted distance of 338 ft., per TrackMan. States is an athletic mover at first base that has clean hands, footwork feel, and bounce off the bag."

James Dolley C / Lafayette , MO / 2025

From 9/29/23: " a wiry 6-foot-1, 170-pound athlete with present lean strength and room to tack on more. Dolley’s hands played loose at the plate with bat speed, staying on plane with natural lift through the zone. He stayed on the barrel to his pull-side throughout his round, squaring his hardest ball up at 94.4 mph, while averaging 86.9 mph per batted ball - two numbers that are likely to climb as he continues to physically fill out his frame."



James Huff 3B / Parkway Central, MO / 2025

From 10/3/23: "...had a strong sophomore campaign for the Colts and was another name that showed well at last week’s event. Huff, who holds lean strength on a 5-foot-11, 165-pound frame, ran the day’s fastest 60 at 6.94 seconds. He works uphill through the zone and showed intent to elevate to the pull-side in this look, squaring his hardest ball up at 90.5 mph in BP."



Jesse Wilmes 3B / Troy Buchanan , MO / 2025

From 10/12/23: "...Wilmes stands in at 6-foot-1, 205-pounds with hand strength, finding the barrel at times (67%) throughout BP with a 91.1 mph max exit velocity and 335 ft. peak batted distance."
