2021 Tennessee Player Rankings (Sept.)


Colton Provey
Tennessee Scouting Director

After a whirlwind summer of showcases, tournaments, and non-stop baseball,  we reflect on the 2021 class rankings as seniors slowly return to campus for their final seasons.  The newest rankings edition presents expansion to 330 prospects from the Volunteer State, including just over 100 commits and several high profile drafts prospects.  The headliner is RHP Chase Burns (Beech), who sky rocketed up both the state and national rankings after sitting upper 90s and touching 100 this summer.  

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 years unfold, 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 Tennessee 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.
