This class much like the 2020 Class in Arkansas proves to be deep as many a good player sit just outside the top 10. As recruiting continues to pick up for this class look for more names to fall off the list and not just those inside the top 10. The top 10 already includes 5 SEC commits with Arkansas having 3 of them.

Here is a look at the top 10 in the 2021 rankings:

The top spot stays with Braylon Bishop, the Arkansas commit that continues to show hard contact everywhere he plays. In the #2 spot is another Razorback commit Austin Ledbetter who has easy arm action and can run his fastball up to mid 80's and will touch low 90's soon. He has also shown some presence with the bat. Keegan Allen makes a big jump up the rankings to #3 as he had an outstanding pitching performance in this summers premier event the Future Games. Tennessee commit #4 Cross Jumper continues to improve in stuff and strength. Payton Allen in at #5 had a solid summer showing he can play in the middle of the field and has plenty of hit tool. #6 is new to the rankings as Cooper Pieri made his presence known this summer showing pitch ability with velo up to 88. Wil French in at #7 is middle of the field type player whether it be infield out centerfield as his run time keeps getting faster. switch hitter that gets on base will be a hot commodity as recruiting continues. #8 Dawson Chester is an athletic infielder that can hit. Big upside that can play multiple positions. #9 recent Arkansas commit, Cooper Oliphant is physically advanced and can really throw. catch and throw with juice in the bat. rounding out the top 10 is Missouri Commit Traejon Blake. Traejon has high upside as he has tools and actions and will continue to get better as he continues to play.
