2020 MLB Draft: College Top 100 ProspectsProspects
The college baseball summer circuit is in the books and with that, several players around the country have improved their prospect status.
No player improved their status more than New Mexico State’s Nick Gonzales. Gonzales put together a productive spring but jumped on the prospect scene in a loud way at the Cape Cod League this past summer. He climbed from 85 in our previous rankings back in the spring to the No. 3 overall spot in the first edition for the 2020 draft.
He wasn’t the only prospect to improve their status. While Georgia’s Emerson Hancock moved from 17 to the top spot, Louisville’s Reid Detmers and South Carolina’s Carmen Mlodzinski also made big strides with Detmers climbing from 49 to 8 and Mlodzinski going from 39 to 10. FIU’s Logan Allen (22), Arizona State’s Alika Williams (25) and Mississippi State’s Jordan Westburg (26) all went from unranked in the last batch of rankings to the Top 30.
In terms of teams, Vanderbilt, Arizona State, Florida, Louisville and Miami lead the way with four players each in the Top 100, while Florida State, Michigan, Mississippi State and South Carolina each placed three players on the list. Our Top 100 also includes junior college players, with FIU transfer and St. John’s River (Fla.) righthander Franco Aleman headlining that crop.
The D1Baseball College Top 100 rankings are compiled by David Seifert, Kendall Rogers, Aaron Fitt and Nick Faleris.
