By Nathan Rode and PBR Staff
Over the course of the next few weeks, The Hotlist will examine the top uncommitted 2019 prospects by position. While the speed of recruiting seems to be redlining, there is a ton of talent still available for college programs, not to mention that there is no reason for any players to be wringing their hands over committing just yet. We started the series with pitchers. Now, we take a look at the available catchers.
