Central Coast Section, CA: Spring 2020 is here and as teams get ready for game action to start in the next two weeks, I've been working my lists for upper-class (2020/2021) players chomping at the bit to keep playing at the next level. Athleticism, raw tools, and projection are all things I saw when creating this list. Whether you are a scout, recruiter, fan or parent here are twenty uncommitted upper-class players to keep an eye on during the 2020 Central Coast Section season.
