State Report: New York

Aaron Fitt -Premium Content

The Empire State boasts the top two prospects in the Northeast and two more top 200 talents. All of that adds up to a better than average year in New York, and the state's first four-star rating in the last decade. Prep righthander Robbie Aviles and Oneonta State righty Dave Filak could go in the top two rounds, and prep shortstop Cito Culver offers premium arm strength and true middle infield actions that are rare commodities among Northeast high schoolers. St. John's reliever Daniel Burawa gives the state a fourth Top 200 prospect—its most since BA instituted the Top 200 in 2003.

State Report: New Mexico

New Mexico's Division I baseball programs had strong years, beginning with New Mexico's series win on the road at Texas to start the season, but the team with the most draft picks this year out of the state is likely to be New Mexico JC. The Thunderbirds could have six players drafted, including outfielder Jordan Buckley, a former two-sport standout who turned his focus to baseball this spring.

State Report: Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania's crop is the strongest in the Northeast. The Keystone State produced just one Top 200 prospect in each of the last three years, but this year it has four—its most since BA started ranking a Top 200 in 2002. All Pennsylvania also earns a four-star rating for the first time in the last decade. And there is depth of talent beyond the top four players; Keenan Kish, Austin Urban, Ben Heath and Chris Kirsch are all top-10-rounds talents who missed out on the Top 200. Beyond that group, Pennsylvania features a number of solid senior signs and raw prepsters with upside.
