State List Talent Ranking: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
(Stars are listed on a 1 to 5 scale relative to what the state typically produces, with 1 being the weakest)

1. Randon Hostert, RHP, Bonneville HS, Idaho Falls, Idaho (BA RANK: 265)
Source: HS • Ht: 6-5 • Wt: 195 • B-T: R-R • Commitment/Drafted: Utah

The top draft prospect from Idaho, Hostert impressed scouts last summer with his performance at the Area Code Games, where his fastball sat in the 89-93 mph range and was paired with a 72-77 mph curveball and low-80s changeup. Listed at 6-foot-5, 195 pounds, Hostert is uber-projectable and not close to reaching full strength yet, with plenty of room to fill out his frame. Also a high school basketball player, Hostert’s spring was a bit up and down as he got his legs under him for baseball season. Some teams saw him much better than others depending on the outing, with his stuff frequently fluctuating from start to start. However, those who like him see a big pitcher who throws heavy, sinking fastballs with feel for a breaking ball and tremendous upside as physically matures. Hostert is committed to Utah.

2. Gabriel Hughes, RHP, Rocky Mountain HS, Meridian, Idaho
