Unsigned Senior Spotlight: Caden Richards | IF


Brett Harrison
Nevada Scouting Director

The Summer is officially under way with the PBR Nevada State Games completed and the club season in full swing with colleges out in full force to finalized their 2023 Recruiting Classes. Nevada's senior class is catching the tail end of the backlash from the additional "Covid Years" given to the current college athletes, causing an abundance of high level prospects to still remain on the market in Nevada's incoming senior class. 

Our Unsigned Senior Spotlight feature will feature the top available prospects that are backed up by the unrivaled metrics collected by the PBR Tech at all Prep Baseball Report events. This data that we collect helps fill in the all of the gaps when the player evaluation process is taking place with all pitching and post-contact hitting data retrieved by TrackMan, pitching bio-mechanics breakdown by PitchAI, in-swing data retrieved by Blast Motion, athletic testing and 60 Times by Swift Performance and the core-six visual skills evaluation from Vizual Edge.
