Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

With the PBR Future Games exactly one month out, we are going to take a look at the prospects selected to represent Team Nevada. These are the best Uncommitted prospects that our state has to offer in the 2022 - 2023 classes and are expected to be some of the first prospects off the board. I am extremely excited about this years team with level of talent that will representing our state against the top Uncommitted players from around the country.

Luke Metzker - IF/RHP

The most recent addition to the Future Games roster, Luke Metzker is a high ceiling two-way Bishop Manogue product that rounds out an exciting roster of Nevada prospects. A standout at the Northern Nevada Scout Day, Metzker showcased a solid batting practice round where he barreled the ball up consistently staying in the middle of the field. Defensively, shows confidence coming through the ball with quality glove presentation and an accurate arm. On the mound, Metzker possesses a three pitch mix that he commands well with a quick, athletic arm action that has seen his velocity continue to trend upward from the 82 mph he topped out at earlier this year.
