Future Games Rewind: Positional Tools


Cam Black-Araujo
PBR Utah Operations Assistant

It was another solid summer on PBR's national stage for Utah prospects with another good showing at the Future Games in late July. The team already has four commitments to big-time programs such as Utah, Oregon, BYU and Northwestern.

With some of the top 2024 and 2025 prospects in the State in attendance, our staff will begin taking a look back at all the data collected. After highlighting the top hitting and pitching performances last week, today we shift our focus to the defensive side as we look at the top positional tools from Utah players.
