Recruiting Rankings | 2021 High School Player Rankings

While these rankings are certain to change between now and a year from now as the players from the high school class of 2021 sign their official National Letters of Intent, below is an early breakdown of the top 10 college recruiting efforts for the 2021-22 school year.

1. Florida

Full 2021-22 Recruiting Class
Head Coach: Kevin O'Sullivan | Recruiting Coordinator: Craig Bell

This Gators class has the chance to be one that will rival any that O’Sullivan and his staff have put together in recent memory thanks to the emphasis they put on cleaning up in Florida while going out of state for a few impact pieces. It’s also worth noting this group possesses more than 10 percent of the top 100 ranked players in 2021 as it currently stands. Righthander Andrew Painter, the top recruit of the class at this point, is already 6-foot-6 and up to 94 mph though he’s far from reaching his full potential. Outfielder Jay Allen, shortstop Deric Fabian (brother of current Gator outfielder Jud) and two-way Jac Caglianone are all positional prospects ranked within the top 75 and possess the ever-intriguing combo of present skill and athleticism as well as ample future projection. Righthander Chase Petty (New Jersey) and lefthander Philip Abner (North Carolina) are the two lone non-Floridians in the class, though it’s clear why the Gators went out of state as both show electric arsenals and big arm strength, topping out at 94 mph each with a swing-and-miss breaking ball. Add in the likes of Brandon Neely and Karl Hartman, a pair of righthanders with low-90s fastballs who saw their stock rise significantly this fall, and it’s easy to see why this class is already being regarded as a special one.
