The Arizona Top 10 Prospects for the class of 2022 is a dynamic blend of athletes and power arms. With a plethora of talent in this year’s class it made it difficult to narrow down the list, but we are confident that these guys will continue to rise to the top of their class.
- Gavin Turley (OF/MIF) Hamilton
Turley has an excellent frame with a combination of strength and fast twitched athleticism. Primary outfielder with plus arm strength. Defensively, he has good speed & body awareness combined with an easy arm. Explosive offensive tools. He uses a simple approach at the plate with excellent feel for the barrel. There is also some more power upside present as he continues to get stronger in his projectable frame. Committed to Oregon State
- Isaiah Jackson (OF) Cienaga
Jackson shows significant upside in a long, athletic frame. He has established himself as one of the top left-handed power bats in the region. Jackson’s power potential stands out but should continue to get even better over the next year with an easy swing & effortless pop. His composed demeanor and barrel awareness help his consistency in the box. Defensively, he currently plays a solid CF but might need to play corner outfield at the next level. Committed to Arizona State
- Dillon Orr (RHP) Shadow Ridge
Orr has an extra large frame with a lean, projectable build. Right Handed pitcher, hooks arm stroke through the back but stays in line, clean stroke, shorter inline stride downhill, fastball worked in low 90’s, flashed good feel for both CB and CH. Projectable, high-upside arm. Committed to Tennessee
- Isaac Araiza (RHP/1B) Yuma Catholic
Araiza has an extra big physical build. High leg raise delivery, good flexibility for his size and build. Fastball tops out at 90 mph, gets nice sinking action at times. Throws his fastball for strikes. Showed nice arm speed on changeup with big diving life with flashes of an above average CB. Committed to San Diego State.
- Demetrio Crisantes (SS/2B) Nogales
Demetrio Crisantes has a taller and long build that can add easy strength. A middle infielder with soft hands and smooth actions. A right-handed hitter, clean swing with smooth and linear hand movement. Lots of line drives and can whip the barrel through contact. Strength will add power easily. Committed to New Mexico State.
- TJ Adams (OF/RHP) Red Mountain
TJ Adams has a medium athletic build with some present strength and room for plenty more. Outstanding runner, 6.25 runner in the sixty. Aggressive to the ball in the outfield and shows good accuracy and carry with his throws. Right handed hitter with short inside swing path and line drive approach that uses all fields. Committed to Arizona.
- Mason White (SS/2B) Salpointe Catholic
Mason White has a medium athletic build that shows strength and quickness. Light on his feet on defense in the middle infield, shows very good side to side range and works through the ball well.

Committed to San Diego
- Sean Farney (RHP) Millenium
Farney has a strong athletic body should give him more to work with in the future. He mostly closed during the HS season but had a strong summer as starting pitcher, mixing in 3 pitches that he threw for strikes. FB worked up to 91mph with slight downhill action with a good CV and CH. Uncommitted
