College coaches and recruiters have been back on the recruiting trail for summer/fall 2021, allowing them to further evaluate position players in gameplay after 15 months of recruiting at home. Speaking of further evaluation, Prep Baseball Report expanded our analysis by axing exit velocities off the tee, and going all in on Trackman ball flight data to embed in player profiles. Since inception of Trackman data in early 2020, we've been able to provide more insight, highlighting prospects' ceilings and consistencies/inconsistencies of barreled balls. In our data collection, there are 122 senior (2022) prospects who have topped 90+ exit velocity from BP sessions on Trackman with 48 already committed to play in college. Putting that into perspective, we should see an inflation of prospects eligible for the position player tracker due to more accuracy in the evaluation process in comparison to tee exit velocity. However, the commitment rate for players that are 85+ position velo and 85+ exit velo remains at a 96% over the past three graduating classes, so we will maintain this parameter in the position player tracker process. SS Jayden Davis (Cookeville; Samford Commit) leads INF Velo at 94 mph from 2020 PBR Future Games and OF/RHP Mason Shropshire (ECS; Uncommitted) leads OF Velo at 94 mph from Easley Baseball Club Scout Day. Five players have topped 100+ exit velo, lead by SS Brett Vondohlen (Stewarts Creek; MTSU Commit) at 103.2 mph from the 2020 PBR Future Games.

Below, we highlight 41 senior prospects, who have attended a PBR showcase and posted 85+ mph for position velo and exit velo. These metrics serve as a benchmark to indicate well rounded skillsets that generally find a place at the next level based on our database history.  They don't necessarily make or break prospects given so much to evaluate and consider when making position player roster decisions, but provide a solid base to expand upon the player's recruiting profile. Of the 41 featured prospects, 24 have committed with 13 division one commits and 17 uncommitted. As commitment season is in full swing for the senior class, position players generally have a slower market in comparison to uncommitted arms. The less consistent market doesn't indicate lacking in uncommitted senior talent, as there are many skilled prospects on the board looking to make a splash this Spring and find the right fit at the next level. There will be many players to join this group as the PBR Tennessee Winter Schedule nears. Interested in getting in the mix? Check out our event page to find an event for you!
