2021 Top 150 College ProspectsProspects
As many college coaches will tell you, the best thing about freshmen is that they become sophomores. With the college season set to begin tomorrow, last year’s freshmen are about to suddenly become experienced sophomores with a year under their belts.
Our 2019 Impact Freshmen list gave a glimpse of the future with a majority of those meeting or exceeding expectations, including big seasons from JT Ginn (ranked No. 2), Kumar Rocker (No. 4), Slade Cecconi (No. 7) and Austin Wells (No. 9). Among those four, three (Ginn, Cecconi, Wells) are 2020 draft eligible by age and, therefore, are not included with the 2021s.
Even though the 2021 MLB draft is a year and a half away, it’s never too early to start talking about the nation’s premier prospects. We released our 2020 Top 350 Prospects list earlier today. Now, it’s time to unveil our 2021 Top 150 Prospects, headlined by Vanderbilt righthander and CWS hero Kumar Rocker. Rocker has everything you want in a pitching prospect with size, athleticism, stuff and makeup.
He is joined by several intriguing prospects, including fellow SEC stars Jud Fabian (Florida) and Jack Leiter (Vanderbilt) who is a true freshman, but will be draft-eligible by age in 2021. Potential five-tool prospects Matt McClain (UCLA) and Colton Cowser (Sam Houston State) round out the top five.
Vanderbilt leads in quality with two of the top three ranked ’21s, while Florida and Texas lead in quantity with six prospects in our Top 150 rankings. Just below them are UCLA with five, and both TCU and Texas Tech with four.
