Baseball Factory, the nation's leader in player development and college promotion, works with over 20,000 players each year at our events. In addition, our staff scouts thousands of other high school players across the nation through our travels and network of coaches. As such, Baseball Factory has developed a list of the Top 100 High School Prospects, powered by Under Armour®.

Baseball Factory’s high school rankings for the Top 100, powered by Under Armour® are based on the opinions of our Scouting and Baseball Operations departments, in addition to information and opinions gathered through discussions with scouts and otherwise informed baseball people throughout the industry.

The order of the rankings was determined through consideration of a combination of the baseball players' present ability and future potential, along with their value as professional prospects. Players are ranked by position.
