SC Rankings: 2026 Class Newcomers


Sammy Esposito
PBR SC Director of Scouting

The Fall of 2023 coming to a close means it's time to revisit the player rankings for all three classes, and up is the Class of 2026.  

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.

It's going to be fun to see where all of these players end up, as there are many talented prospects still uncommitted heading into the winter.  Let's take a look at how this class stacks up after the fall of 2023 as we head into the winter.
