Today we unveil our full Top 100 for the VA/DC 2026 class. Throughout the week we have highlighted some new faces, some risers, and much more. Below are a few more players that have seen some movement in the Top 100.

A new face to the 2026 rankings is King George right hander, Christian Newsome. The right hander was up to 86 at the MPH 101 workout in late fall and has shown the ability to overpower hitters with that pitch. The usually low-mid 80's offering has some late cut and carry to it, potentially offering more velo in his future. The secondary is still developing and it is mostly a one present pitch arsenal for now, but has handled himself well when we have had a chance to see him. 

There are throwers and then there are pitchers. '26 Kason Wagner is a bulldog on the mound (apple-tree). The Miller School right hander does not have overpowering stuff, but he is going to attack the zone and pitch. He has some traits that a lot high school arms lack these days. He can add and subtract, moves it in and out, and features three secondary pitches that he has the ability to land. Above average arm speed, normal effort, and a pretty clean and efficient operation on the mound. Plenty of pitchability with this sophomore arm, as well as ceiling left in his future. 

Another young arm from the Charlottesville area is Tramayne Minor. Minor falls on the back end of the Top 100, as a projection arm. Listed at 5-foot-10, nothing but knees and elbows. Long levers, thin frame, loose actions, won't be 16 for another eight months, and there is plenty to dream on here. Remembering that the younger the class, the more projection is worked into the profile, Minor has the makings of a very solid future arm. Full arm swing, above average arm speed, and some hop to the fastball. Secondary is solid, with a three pitch mix that offers a curveball, slider, and diving changeup. Lots to like with this arm and he should be a future follow as he continues to mature and add strength to the frame.
