While most of the top high school players in the 2025 class have a college commitment in place, there are still several big names who remain uncommitted, with more under-the-radar players generating buzz on the trail.
A new NCAA recruiting rule this year prohibited contact between Division 1 coaches and players before Aug. 1 of their junior year, which temporarily slowed the process, though many of the top players for 2025 had already committed prior to the new regulations. Those rules will play a bigger factor for future classes.
In the past month, six players ranked among the top 100 players in the 2025 class announced their college commitments. Outfielders Anthony Pack (Texas), Josiah Hartshorn (Texas A&M) and William Patrick (LSU) all committed, while Mississippi State added the top uncommitted catcher in the country to its recruiting class with Trent Grindlinger. On the mound, LSU added righthander Reagan Ricken, while Tennessee received commitments from a pair of Top 100 players in righthander/shortstop Carson Brumbaugh and righthander Sawyer Deering.
There are still more premium recruits and potential high picks in the 2025 MLB Draft who remain uncommitted, with more sleepers and dark horse candidates who are uncommitted and could play at high-end programs. These are 40 uncommitted players to follow, with scouting reports and videos.
Ebel is a blue-chip recruit who will have his choice of any school in the country, with recent visits to LSU, Tennessee and Oklahoma. He’s a potential first-round pick, but if he makes it to campus, he has a chance to be an impact player from the start.

He’s a selective hitter who makes frequent contact, is a high on-base threat and could develop into a middle-of-the-lineup hitter as his burgeoning power continues to grow. He has the defensive instincts and arm strength to fit on the left side of the infield, whether it’s at shortstop or third base long term.
