On Feb. 26, the PBR Illinois team hosted the Preseason All-State: Upperclass at The MAX in McCook, Ill. The event featured over 100 of the most talented upperclass players from around the state and gave our staff an in-depth look at some names to follow for this coming spring. 

Thursday our staff published our collaborated takeaways from this event within our Quick Hits piece, which you can find by clicking HERE. We'll continue our post-event process today and into next week, so be on the lookout for that.

Today, we'll start our data dive from the numbers collected at this event within this statistical analysis. In total, 17 players ran sub-7.00 times in the 60-yard dash, 20 prospects recorded fastballs at or above 88 mph, and 11 players recorded peak exit velocities north of the 98 mph mark.

Read below to see which prospects put up eye-popping numbers at this high pedigree, invite-only event.
