COLLEGE

HIGH SCHOOL
 
With the 2010 baseball season in the books, it’s time to focus on 2011. Our concentration in the first three months will be on preview content—at the college, junior-college and high-school levels. We’ll provide significant content over the next few weeks on the nation’s top teams and players, and what to look for at each level.
 
We’ll identify all the top prospects in the 2011, 2012 and 2013 draft classes with our comprehensive national and state-by-state follow lists of the top talent at the high school, junior-college and college levels. We’ll also rank the top 500 prospects in the current draft class. We’ll do the same for the top 300 prospects in the 2012 class, and top 200 prospects in the 2013 class. We’ll also spin off numerous other prospect checklists—mostly with an eye towards the 2011 draft.
 
Our pre-season ranking of the nation’s top teams will be comprehensive, too, as we’ll identify the top 100 Division I college teams, the top small-college teams, the top 50 junior-college teams and the top 100 high-school teams.
 
We’ll also provide comprehensive previews of every Division I college conference, highlighting all the top prospects, as well as state-by-state overviews of the 2011 draft.
 
Most of the player rankings, as they relate to the draft classes of 2011, 2012 and 2013, will require an Insider-level or Premium-level pass to PG CrossChecker to view the information. Subscriber information is available elsewhere on the PG CrossChecker site. Much of the team-specific content is available for free.
