Talent-Laden Orange Coast Retains No. 1 Ranking

Perfect Game will unveil its list of the nation’s Top 100 junior-college prospects for the 2012 draft later this week, and not surprisingly it will be dominated by two teams: California’s Orange Coast College, which has been the No. 1-ranked team in the country for the last month, and Texas’ Howard College, the nation’s top-ranked club to begin the 2012 season.

Both clubs could have as many as five or six prospects apiece on the list, including multiple players that could crack the top 10 rounds. It will also be heavily dominated by teams that are prominently represented in Perfect Game’s current ranking of the nation’s Top 50 junior-college teams.

Led by Orange Coast (29-4) at No. 1, the next four spots remain the same as two weeks ago as junior-college teams around the country gear up for post-season play, which will begin for most clubs in the first week of May. No. 2 Iowa Western (43-1), No. 3 Walters State of Tennessee (42-6), No. 4 Howard (35-8) and No. 5 Polk State of Florida (40-9) follow Orange Coast in the rankings.
