The Top 3

Jackson Holliday SS / 2B / Stillwater, OK / 2022

The Oklahoma State commit with the familiar last names sticks at the top spot. The left-handed hitter had another huge spring for Stillwater HS and most recently stood out at the Area Code Games. National Crosschecker had this to say about him:  "An Oklahoma State recruit, went a modest 3-for-10 with three walks, but once again showed an innate ability to track pitches at an elite level and get off big swings in all counts. Trying to do a bit too much for the first few days of the event, Holliday stayed on a ball later on for a booming double to the opposite gap. His ability to keep his hands back and adjust and get off hacks against all pitches in all counts continues to be different from his peers."

Brennan Phillips LHP / OF / Owasso, OK / 2022

Phillips was one of the reasons OK saw a spring that included some of the most dominating pitching performances the state has ever seen. The left-hander shows elite command of a fastball into the low 90s, a devastating curveball, and a fading changeup. The Oklahoma State commit most recently featured his devastating arsenal at the Area Code Games. 

 

 

Caden Powell SS / RHP / Clinton, OK / 2022

The Oklahoma commit showed that he continues to be one of the top power hitters in the country at the Oklahoma State games where he played pepper with the score board during the HR derby. The 6-foot-3 200-pound 2-sport standout shows the arms strength and hands to have a real chance to stick at 3B at the next level. 

 

The Risers
As with every season that goes by, many players take major leaps physically and developmentally. Below are some of the biggest risers since our latest rankings.

Cole Abbott RHP / 1B / Bixby, OK / 2022

The Cowley County commit just keeps getting better and better. The right-hander really impressed at the OK Fall Upperclass Games pounding the zone with a fastball in the upper 80s, a sharp slider in the upper 70s, and a splitter that flashed plus actions.

Jayden Minter RHP / 3B / Weatherford, OK / 2022

The uncommitted 6-foot-4, 200-pound right-hander showed a velo jump to 86 at the OK Fall Upperclass Games. Minter will likely continue to rise up the rankings as he to polishes his delivery and off speed offerings.

Miles Lock 2B / SS / Deer Creek, OK / 2022

Always a proficient defender, Lock has added strength and speed to his game, making him a dynamic player on both sides of the ball. At the OK Fall Upperclass Games Lock turned in a 6.78 60 along with an 89 mph exit velo. Lock committed to NOC Enid shortly after his standout performance at the OK Fall Upperclass Games. 

 <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">2022 MIF ⁦<a href="https://twitter.com/miles_lock6?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@miles_lock6</a>⁩ (⁦<a href="https://twitter.com/AntlerBaseball?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@AntlerBaseball</a>⁩ and ⁦<a href="https://twitter.com/nocenidjets?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@nocenidjets</a>⁩ commit) had a strong showing at the OK Fall Prospect Games with a smooth line drive stroke and solid def actions up the middle and a 6.87 60. Locked up his commitment shortly after the event. <a href="https://t.co/MEGwu4eZCy">pic.twitter.com/MEGwu4eZCy</a></p>&mdash; PBR Oklahoma (@PBR_Oklahoma) <a href="https://twitter.com/PBR_Oklahoma/status/1462872627878535176?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 22, 2021</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>


The Newcomers
In the offseason, we found a couple of difference makers who earned their way into our rankings. All three of the prospects below enter the rankings in the top 60.

John Keim RHP / RHP / Charles Page, OK / 2022

The Eastern Oklahoma State commit showed why his is one of the most projectable arms in the class at the OK Fall Upperclass Games. The broad shouldered 6-foot-5 175-pound right-hander pounded the zone and dominated hitters with a mid 80s fastball at the OK Fall Upperclass Games. Keim also mixed a slider and changuep for strikes. 

Cody Banks LHP / Broken Arrow , OK / 2022

One of the biggest sleepers in the class, Banks impressed at the OK Fall Upperclass Games and committed soon after to NOC Enid. The left-hander shows a low-mid 80s fastball with an easy arm action and clean delivery that promises much more to come. Banks also shows an elite slider that he throws for strikes. 

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">2022 LHP <a href="https://twitter.com/cody16801465?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@cody16801465</a> (⁦<a href="https://twitter.com/Batigerbaseball?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Batigerbaseball</a>⁩ and ⁦<a href="https://twitter.com/nocenidjets?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@nocenidjets</a>⁩ commit) jumped on the scene w/loose arm action with the FB up to 83 and a tight spinning (2480 rpm) SL at 75 mph. Quickly landed a commitment after the event and room for more velo in the future. <a href="https://t.co/DegcIEU6uO">pic.twitter.com/DegcIEU6uO</a></p>&mdash; PBR Oklahoma (@PBR_Oklahoma) <a href="https://twitter.com/PBR_Oklahoma/status/1461787810185334788?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 19, 2021</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Aiden Alexander OF / RHP / Yukon , OK / 2022

Alexander was a big piece of the lineup for Yukon last spring and he showed why at the OK Fall Upperclass Games. The quick twitch outfielder ran a 6.79 60, 86 mph OF velo, and 84 mph exit velo. Alexander committed to NOC Enid shortly after the event.
