Class of 2023 - Fall Rankings Update


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

As the fall winds down and players prep for the upcoming Spring, we have updated the Nevada Class of 2023 PBR Player Rankings. As players begin to shift their focus to their respective high school teams, the summer and fall seasons have shone a light on this class which is now beginning to come into focus from a draft standpoint. 

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 Nevada 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. 

In our most recent update, we have minimal movement within our Top 10 with Desert Oasis standout outfielder, Jet Gilliam, holding down the top spot with Oregon commit, Cooper Sheff, and Oregon State commit, Anthony Marnell IV, shifting up on spot each. This is one of Nevada's deepest classes in recent years with a number of prospects that could be recognized the Top 10 and we will be out to cover the Silver State throughout the Fall and Preseason to ensure we maintain the most accurate rankings possible. Look forward to more content covering the 2023 updated rankings and another update heading into the Spring season!
