2017 Draft: Top 100 College Prospects Premium
The 2017 MLB Draft is shaping up to be a fascinating one, and much of that intrigue stems from a very deep, yet very unpredictable college class. The sense since this crop first arrived on campus was that it would be defined by its group of powerhouse pitching and that has certainly turned out to be the case. Although outfielder Jeren Kendall tops the list, eight of the first ten players on our offseason top 100 list are pitchers.
There is room for jockeying at the top, however, and most scouts and coaches will tell you that are endless variations of how the early part of this list could shake out. But, more importantly, as you go deeper into our top 100, it’s easy to see that the depth in this class, particularly on the pitching side, is going to make for another exceptionally talented group of college players headed to the professional ranks this coming June.
Our top college prospects list will be updated and expanded in January, as we roll out our annual Top 300. For now, however, we take our most recent look at the top 100 draft prospects in college baseball, as we come off the practice season. This current list represents a consensus obtained through thorough research, polling coaches and scouts from all parts of the country, and a heavy influence from the scouting observations of our lead writers Frankie Piliere, Aaron Fitt, and Kendall Rogers.
