The summer has come and gone with all eyes shifting to the fall, and we dove into the TN 2023 Rankings by expanding it to 250 prospects. Much needed update with plenty of new faces as the Fall and senior Spring approaches. The class currently has 75 college commits with plenty of talent remaining and future commitments on the horizon. Lot of shuffling amongst the top ten with LHP Ethan McElvain (Nolensville; Vandy Commit) climbing to number one overall. RHP Dean McCalla (Houston) remains the top uncommitted arm and OF Brett Rogers (Silverdale) is the top uncommitted bat. 

As always, the evaluation process is a fluid and ongoing process with multiple viewings in order to get the best feel for players abilities. It’s important to note that as players continue their development some show marked improvement at a much more rapid pace. That doesn’t indicate that other players got worse or went backwards, it’s just how player development works.  As the year unfolds, players make improvements and new prospects pop up on the radar expanding the PBR rankings universe.  In addition to the evaluations of players, our scouts, both those in Tennessee and nationally, have also had multiple discussions with each other to review our individual lists and then make adjustments based on what we've each seen. 

Look forward to more content covering the 2023 updated rankings and further expansion to 300 prospects following the Winter months.
