The summer has come and gone with all eyes shifting to the fall, and we dove into the TN 2024 Rankings by expanding it to 200 prospects. The class added 50 new faces and saw the commitments expand from 16 to 22 since the last update. Consistent movement and shuffling throughout the board, highlighted by RHP Ashton Alston (Christian Community; Alabama Commit) climbing to number one after flashing four pitch mix with FB up to 92 and very projectable frame.

The class features a deep crop of outfielders (22 in Top 100) and quality pitching (38 in Top 100) plus an abundance of two-way talent. Five arms and four outfielders are featured in the top 10, including uncommitted RHP Saxon Roberts (Independence), who touched 93 this summer at Lakepoint. The next wave of middle infielders are emerging after six commits at the top of the class. Big physical bats are available at the corner infield spots, including 1B Carter McKay (Arlington), who topped 105.7 exit velo at Future Games, and the catching spot is slowly coming along with Layne Akers (Siegel) as the leading true backstop. Plenty of uncommitted two way options on the board (with 5 in the Top 50), headlined by UTL/RHP Bradley Pippin (Riverdale), who will be returning to the mound this fall. With over half the Top 50 still uncommitted, there is still plenty of action and quality prospects to focus on this fall season. 

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.
