Phil Kerber
Georgia Scouting Director

As we begin to close the book on 2022 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 2022. 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. 

Starting on December 7th, we began counting down from No. 25 all the way to No. 1, which will be announced on December 31st. Coming in at No. 24 in our countdown of the most viewed profiles of 2022 is Team Georgia Future Gamer and Tennessee commit, SS Jay Abernathy from North Cobb High School.

Scouting Report

8/01/22
Listed at 5-foot-10, 160-pounds, Abernathy commands more attention than his frame would let on, and showed well at the Future Games. Aggressive, athletic, and confident, the twitchy infielder was a treat to watch on both sides of the ball. There is an infectious aura of positive energy that allowed him to set the tone for Team Georgia (the event’s best roster), as he looked the part of a future top of the order player. The left-handed hitter builds momentum through the approach thanks to a knee-knock leg hang before striding out and utilizing quick hands to accurately find barrels with each swing. He went 3-for-5 on the week, collecting two walks while applying pressure on the basepaths with three stolen bases. He will have a chance to play any infield spot including shortstop where his quick arm and quick first step presently stand out.

6/26/22
5-foot-10, 160-pound left-handed hitting shortstop, lean, wiry build, an elite athlete, quick, smooth actions throughout. Wide setup at the plate with an athletic crouch, rhythm in hands as he smoothly loads back, short toe-tap stride, good balance. Whippy bat speed and quick hands, when he gets extended the ball jumps off the bat. At-times the hands don’t get extended he creates hard ground ball contact, but with his speed and athleticism Abernathy can steal an infield 1B or make any play close. Aggressive on the bases, always looking for the extra bag. Oozes athleticism.
