Austin Sharp
Alabama Scouting Director

As we begin to close the book on 2023 and shift our focus to a brand-new year, we continue our tradition of highlighting the Top-25 Most Viewed Profiles for the calendar year. Using Google Analytics, our staff was able to compile a list of the Top-25 prospects whose PBR profile was viewed the most in 2023. Many of the players mentioned on this list produced at a high level at various PBR events over the course of the last 12 months.
