But first before you jump down our throat like some still probably will before actually reading this part. THIS IS NOT A DRAFT RANKING. Yes, there is some crossover. But, this is as it always a Ranking as to who we think is the top players at the junior college level regardless of how their draft stock looks, what division they play at, ext.

As many know November 13th was the start of the early signing day period this fall. And boy was it a day. For junior college athletes it generally is not as much of a surprise where they are going to sign when they have their options. They do not usually have the hats sitting in front of them like many people think when it comes to a person signing day.
From what we here at the JBB have collected it was over 200 different individuals commit/sign so far during this period. So we decided to break out or ranking caps for the first time to kick off the official 2020/2021 Calendar. Yes, we did have a Recruiting Class Ranking a few weeks back but this is for the guys that will not make it to campus till the fall of 2021.
As usual there are many of your normal universities that have already started to pick the Junior College ranks to fill their rosters for the next coming years. Below we rank the top 25 Classes as well as some Honorable Mentions.Read more
To come out of Arizona is one thing. To make it out of there and win the bid to go to Grand Junction is another, and once there to win the whole thing is another. Well, that is exactly what Central Arizona did last year. Getting into the Arizona playoffs last week of the season as the 4-seed. Then winning the Region 1 title. Then headed up to take on the rest of the district and took care of business there. Once in Colorado, it was on. Making the switch back to metal bats was a huge advantage for them. They won their first 2 games before losing to Iowa Western. They fought back through the Losers bracket beating Chattahoochee Valley, and Walters State before taking on Iowa Western for the second time in the National Championship game. They took care of the Reivers in a slugfest 13-8.
Previous winners:’19 Central Arizona (National Champs), ‘18 Southern Idaho, ‘17 Southern Nevada, ‘16 Yavapai (National Champs),
