Wisconsin Class of 2025: Update

Wisconsin Staff

After a productive spring we are releasing an updated version of the Class of 2025 rankings today. A small update with some movement throughout the top-100 as we head into the summer circuit.

In this piece we’ll outline some arrow-up juniors and notable newcomers from the last update as the spring comes to a close and the summer circuit gets started.


+ LHP Mason Sommer (West Bend East, 2025): Here’s a report from the West Milwaukee Preseason ID: “is a high-upside left hander who possesses one of the higher ceilings in the state. The 6-foot-5, 168-pound lefty has long levers with a lean and wiry build that seems capable of handling more strength. It’s an up-tempo delivery with a high leg-lift and athletic movement downhill, leading to a full arm action into a ¾ slot. Sommer sat in the mid-80s and topped at 85.7 mph on his fastball, showing a 4-seamer with life and a sinker with arm-side run. His upper-60s curveball has depth with some sweeping action, while his changeup sinks to the arm-side at 75-77 mph. Offensively, Sommer uses a rhythmic toe-tap, creating good separation to generate power. It’s a slightly uphill path that leads to balls hit in the air through the middle of the field. The West Bend native also showed good footwork around the bag at first base. The size and athleticism is there for Sommer, as he is certainly an intriguing uncommitted prospect inside of the Badger State.

+ SS/OF Max Glusick (Sun Prairie East, 2025): After a strong 2023 summer campaign, Glusick continued to elevate his stock over the winter and now into the spring—rising in our newest update. Standing at an athletic 5-foot-8, 160-pound frame, Glusick presents quick feet and smooth hands at the shortstop position, which he occupies for the No. 1 team in the state in Sun Prairie East. The junior features an accurate arm that reached 79 mph from across the infield at the Madison Preseason ID, in addition to his work in the outfield. Glusick’s versatility on the defensive end makes him even more valuable as a position player. Glusick provided exit velocities in the low-90s throughout his performance at his most recent showcase—sprinting a quick 6.88-second 60-yard dash in the process. He remains a threat on the basepaths with a short bat path—demonstrating a consistent feel for the barrel with a slight leg kick and some power to the pull-side. Glusick will remain an integral part of the Cardinals’ success in their upcoming playoff run as the No. 1 seed in their sectional.

+ RHP Dylan Campeau (Greendale, 2025) is a 6-foot-3, 210-pound right hander that has seen an uptick in stuff after an arm injury that kept him off the mound last year. Healthy again, Campeau has struck out 26 batters in 13.1 innings this spring while building his arm back up. Going into his final season on the summer circuit the uncommitted right-hander is a name-to-know senior out of Wisconsin.

+ RHP/INF Nick Hirsch (Hudson, 2025) here's a report from the Prep Baseball Wisconsin @ The Rock Invitational: Scout Blog: "Listed at a strong and sturdy 6-foot-2, 196 pounds, currently ranked No. 44 in Wisconsin’s junior class. Got the start for the Raiders on Friday night and put together five quality innings to earn the no decision. He ran his fastball up to 88 mph early on into his start, while casually sitting in the 84-87 mph range for the duration of his outing. He spun in a mid-70s curveball that flashed sharp 11/5 break to earn some chases out of the zone. He finished with nine strikeouts while giving up two runs on five hits and limited the free bases, giving up just three walks."


+ RHP Sam Callow (Indian Trail, 2025) here’s a report from the WIAA Week 5 Scout Blog: “5-foot-11, 165 pounds with room to add. Callow has been on a tear to start the season, coming into Monday’s matchup without giving up an earned run in multiple appearances. While he did give up a couple to a loaded Oak Creek offense, he still came away with the win and was impressive across his five innings of work. Working out of a simple delivery, Callow pounded the zone with a fastball that he got up to 85 mph, and sat in low-to-mid-80s throughout. Off that he spun in a 11/5 breaking ball that he consistently spotted up in the zone for strikes and he also earned some whiffs on it too. He finished his illustrious day with 11 strikeouts, which again was against one of the state’s most talented lineups. It is easy to see why Callow has been off to a productive start, as he has a true feel to pitch and is confident enough to pitch backwards, making him an intriguing uncommitted arm in the state’s junior class.”



+ INF Dean Staudacher (Muskego, 2025): Here’s a report from the West Milwaukee Preseason ID: “was one of the biggest winners of the day. His 5-foot-11, 182 pound frame is athletic with good proportions and has more room to add more size and strength. Staudacher showed impressive hitability with a loose and rhythmic swing that allows him to hit line drives to all fields. Staudacher’s defensive portion of the event at shortstop was one of the more impressive performances we’ve seen at a Wisconsin event thus far. He has clean footwork working through the baseball with rhythm and quickness. The arm strength on the junior has taken considerable steps forward as he was consistently in the mid 90s across the infield with carry and had the top infield velocity of the event at 97 mph. He has clearly taken huge steps with his development and is certainly an uncommitted name-to-know in the Badger State.”

+ LHP Aaron Ploszay (Holmen, 2025): Over the winter, Ploszay emerged as one of the more intriguing left-handed pitchers in Wisconsin’s 2025 class—featuring a solid three-pitch arsenal at the Prep Baseball Minnesota Preseason ID - Twin Cities. Ploszay presents himself at a strong 6-foot-2, 180-pound frame with room to fill out as he continues to develop. The junior presents a quick, explosive arm with a FB that plays in the mid-to-upper-80s. His No. 1 pitch sat between 85-87 mph (T88) throughout his ‘pen, featuring run and life through the zone. With a quick tempo in his delivery, Ploszay continues to develop a CB and CH in his offspeed mix. He illustrated the ability to kill spin on the CH—allowing the pitch to garner sink as it reaches home plate. Ploszay has taken on an important role for a quality Holmen team this spring, most recently punching out 10 batters in a five-inning start for the Vikings—garnering a debut on our newest update to Wisconsin’s 2025 rankings.

+ RHP Cole O’Brien (DC Everest, 2025): Here’s a report from the Eau Claire Preseason ID: “O'Brien is a long-levered, 6-foot-3 righty who showed quality present feel to pitch and additional projection. It’s a high leg tuck with a closed-off landing that results in a crossfire delivery. His arm path was consistently on-time, getting through the ball with whip. The tall righty worked 86-88 mph (T88.2 mph) mph with his fastball, while showing feel for the zone. His curveball comes out of the same window as the fastball, showing short, quick break with 10/4 action at 73-75 mph. His changeup is another weapon, an offspeed pitch with late depth that O’Brien showed feel for at 78-80 mph.”


+ LHP Tyler Loesche (Slinger, 2025): Here’s a report from the Madison Preseason ID: “ a name our staff was not overly familiar with until he showed up on Sunday in Madison. Measured at 6-foot-2, 196 pounds, Loesche has some high upside on the mound and he features a quality three-pitch mix. His fastball sat in the mid-80s, touching 85.3 mph while also featuring over 15” of vertical break, making it play up even harder. He went to a low-70s sweeping slider, which averaged over a foot of break and showed feel for a fading changeup in the low-80s.”

+ RHP Thomas Wincek (Middleton, 2025): Wincek is an upside right-handed pitcher who excelled in his showcase debut at the Madison Preseason ID this past winter. Standing at a wiry 6-foot-1, 167-pound frame, Wincek provided a quality look on the mound with more room to fill out in his frame. The right-hander rushed his FB up to 85 mph—featuring life and carry through the strike zone. Wincek stays tall in his delivery, utilizing his lower half effectively in a repeatable approach. That allows him to get on top of a solid SL—presenting quality feel for the pitch in addition to a secondary BB. His CH emerged as a winner, as Wincek was able to keep the pitch low in the strike zone—showcasing depth and run. The junior is an athletic mover on the mound and has been effective this spring as he continues to raise his stock as an uncommitted arm.

+ RHP Ben Hites (Greendale, 2025): Here’s a report from the Green Bay Preseason ID: “is a righty with a loose arm that impressed during Saturday’s showcase. On the mound, Hites’ overall ease and fluidity of his delivery is impressive, methodically getting to his balance point before athletically working downhill. Out of that delivery, Hites ran his lively fastball that averaged over 14” of vertical break up to 87.7 mph, while strictly 86-87 mph. He also featured a sweeping slider that already seems to be an out-pitch, as it played with sharp and late lateral break, while spinning at a well above average rate (avg. 2,524 RPM). He rounded out his productive three-pitch mix with a changeup that he sold well, and sat in the upper-70s. It seems that Hites has been hard at work this offseason, and he is certainly a very intriguing uncommitted prospect in the state junior class.”


+ RHP Gavin Kanters (Fort Atkinson, 2025): Here’s a report from the Madison Preseason ID: “ a strong-bodied 6–foot-2, 220 pounder who put up some noteworthy metrics on both sides of the ball on Sunday. Starting with the bat, Kanters registered a max exit velocity of 96.9 mph from a direct left-handed swing, and averaged 87.1 mph throughout. He also created some high-end Blast metrics too, as he averaged a hand speed of 21.6 mph and a bat speed of 73.4 mph as well. On the mound, Kanters sat in the mid-80s, and reared back for a 87 mph fastball later on in his ‘pen. He went to both a curveball and slider, too. The curveball, which sat 66-68 mph, featured late 11/5 action and he was able to consistently spot it up low in the zone. As for the slider, it was thrown slightly harder at 69-72 mph, and it played with more lateral break. Rounding out his three-pitch mix was a fading changeup in the mid-to-upper-70s.

+ RHP/INF Jack Anzelmo (Kimberly, 2025): Anzelmo put together a solid two-way showing at the Green Bay Preseason ID this past winter—garnering attention to slot in Wisconsin’s 2025 class rankings. Anzelmo presents long-levers in a 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame, providing consistent exit velocities in the mid-to-upper-80s throughout his BP session. The righty has a whippy barrel and the natural ability to elevate the baseball—sending line drives to the gaps consistently. Showcased a smooth round of infield during his defensive work—maxing out at 83 mph on throws across the infield. On the mound, Anzelmo sat between 82-83 mph with the FB through the entirety of his ‘pen. The right-hander has a quick arm in his repeatable delivery—landing all three of his pitches for strikes. He killed spin on a CH that showcased arm-side run—fading from 76-78 mph. As he continues to develop his SL, Anzelmo’s two-way stock continues to rise as he adds strength to his frame—priming him for a big summer as a prospect to follow.

+ INF Kody Hage (Union Grove, 2025): Here’s a report from the Milwaukee Preseason ID: “...was one of the biggest winners of the day with his performance with the bat. Hage was measured at a muscular 6-foot, 216 pounds with strength throughout. He showcased that strength by hitting rockets to all fields with a simple, repeatable swing with a short and quick entry into the zone and easy extension through contact. Hage finished the day with the fifth highest max exit velocity on the day of 96.0 mph and the ninth highest average exit velocity of 88.6 mph. His 362 foot max carry on the ball was second best for the event, too. The third-baseman showcased quality abilities on the infield with fluid movements through the ball and plenty of arm strength (85 mph) to stick at the hot corner.

+ INF Vance Schroeder (Manitowoc Lincoln, 2025): Here’s a report from the Green Bay Preseason ID: “...authored one of the loudest rounds of the day. From a direct and simple swing, Schroeder’s hardest hit ball of the day came off at 106.5 mph all while averaging 98.6 mph throughout his round. His blast metrics were also top of the line, too. He averaged a hand speed of 23.1 mph and a bat speed of 77.1 mph, while maxing out at 80 mph. With as large of a presence that Schroeder is, it is tough to see him profile anywhere other than first base. While on the right side of the infield, he features athletic footwork around the bag with a willingness to smother throws in the dirt.

+ RHP/INF Ian Aoki (Ashwaubenon, 2025): Here’s a report from the Green Bay Preseason ID: “ a well-built, talented righty who had a nice showing at the Green Bay event. He worked 85-87, topping at 87.2 mph with the fastball from a downhill angle, showing the ability to hit his spots. His curveball has tight 10/4 break, a pitch he also showed the ability to land in the zone. Aoki sells his changeup, throwing it out of the same tunnel as the fastball. It’s a pitch with depth at 77-79 mph. The Ashwaubenon junior uses a quick sidestep delivery into a high balanced leg lift with a controlled stride and balanced finish. His arm path is short but quick, consistently on-time out of a high-¾ slot.”
