Most Viewed Player Profiles in NC

 

No. 6: Isaac Armstrong

Isaac Armstrong is the next, in a long line of, projectable middle infielders that have lanky frames and a solid fundamental base, that have committed to East Carolina.  In August of 2020, Armstrong made his verbal, but his talent and production at East Lincoln and with the South Charlotte Panthers has continued to create buzz with baseball fans and potentially with pro scouts.  As Armstrong continued to fill out and add muscle to the frame, the projection that the East Carolina staff put on the prospect began to pay off.  Still with two years left in high school, Armstrong continues to fill out and move up the prospect lists.
