As always, the evaluation process is a fluid and ongoing process with multiple viewings in order to get the best feel for players abilities. It’s important to note that as players continue their development some show marked improvement at a much more rapid pace. That doesn’t indicate that other players got worse or went backwards, it’s just how player development works. As the year unfolds, players make improvements and new prospects pop up on the radar expanding the Prep Baseball rankings universe.  In addition to the evaluations of players, our scouts, both those in Mississippi and nationally, have also had multiple discussions with each other to review our individual lists and then make adjustments based on what we've each seen. 

Below, you will find some notable debuters inside the Top-80, top uncommitted prospects in their respective positions, and more. To view the Class of 2026 Rankings, CLICK HERE.
