2023 Ranking Riser: Easton Shelton


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

The 2023 Class Rankings Update saw a shake up in Nevada's Top 10 with the state's top 5 prospects landing in the National Top 300. With Faith Lutheran/LVR product, Zane Kelly, holding tight onto the #1 spot, followed by two high ceiling right handers in Meadow's LJ Mercurius and Bishop Gorman's Kamdyn Perry who sit in the #2 and #3 spots, respectively. Nevada's 2023 Class has the chance to be the next "BIG" class with the depth of talent present not only in the Top 10, but in the Top 25 and beyond evident by the rising of two new prospects who earned their spot among the best players in the state in the PBR Nevada Top 10. Now, we highlight the 2023 Ranking Risers with a number of prospects trending positively after successful Summer and Fall seasons.

Bishop Gorman and GBG Vegas product, Easton Shelton, solidified himself as one of the top power bats in the 2023 Class after his performance at the Winter Update where head the lead or sat near the top of a number of key hitting categories. Following the completion of a successful summer, Shelton made the jump from outside the Top 10, all the way up to the #8 spot. The 6-foot-3, 205 pound athlete is already an imposing presence in the box and he still has room to add strength and size to his frame. His present physicality and twitch in the box, evident by his event best 23.36 MPH Average Hand Speed and 24.3 MPH Max Hand Speed, make him an interesting follow that could make some serious noise in the coming years and Prep Baseball Report will be there to cover him through it all.
