Uncommitted Spotlight: Nolan Hardesty, 2023 LHP


Brett Harrison
PBR Scouting Director

With the 2022 Summer Season wrapping up, we now begin our transition into the Fall Season which is a critical time for players in the 2023 Class who are still on the board and seeking their future collegiate homes. The NCAA Recruiting Calendar allows for limited contact during the current time period and as a result of that, recruiting coordinators have turned to social media and website coverage of players to help provide objective insight on potential prospects. With that, we will begin highlighting the top prospects the Gem State has to offer in an effort to get our players with college aspirations an opportunity at the next level, wherever that may be with the Uncommitted Spotlight feature.
