I know some of you guys hate big lists without context. I get that. Other people love lists. I am trying to cover both with my positional draft series as well as this, a big ol' list. Because college baseball is so expansive, it's hard for me to keep up on everyone. This is a way to see new names I may have missed as well as confirming the performance of the best players I was already aware of.

I used GAPPER for this. GAPPER is the name I have given my analysis system, as some of you are aware. It's a points based ranking system that takes basic box score statistics, manipulates them and gives me different data that I can use in many ways such as ranking, profiling and projecting. I will get into this more as the summer heats up and I roll out the latest udpate to this system in regards to minor leaguers, but for now, here is a list of the top prospects in each conference based on GAPPER's point system. While in the MiLB version, age is a heavy factor, it is not used in the collegiate version.

In the deeper conferences, I've made deeper lists and broken them out by class. They are listed at the top. The rest are alphabetical and list just the top 5 or top 10. I've even listed the top 30 JuCo performers. If you want context on any players, just ask in the comments and I'll do my best but I know nothing about many of these guys in the smaller conferences.

Sorry for the last name, first name listing. That's how I got it from my program and haven't manually edited it.
