CBA Sacramento Tryout Notes

Blaine Clemmens
Northern California Director of Scouting

In what should be the first of many future tryouts we attend and scout, on November 11th we were at the CBA Sacramento tryout to scout and evaluate nearly 40 players in attendance. The tryout had over 100 player in attendance, but 38 of them upgraded their tryout to also include a PBR evaluation, complete with scouting reports, stats, headshot for their profile, and video.

Here are a dozen players who caught our eye, some of whom are not yet in high school but look to have bright futures in the game.  We do not know which players were selected for the various teams.

Players are listed in no particular order. Please click on the player name for access to the full profile.
