On Sunday January 26th, ninety-one of the top players in the state of North Carolina converged at the Ultimate Performance Sports Center in Matthews, NC.  The Preseason All-State showcase event is the top winter event in North Carolina year after year and with the increased demand, there are now two sessions, an east and a west. 

While there were a ton of great performances, today we are highlighting nine players that saw their stock rise after their performance.  Some committed and some uncommitted, each player made a big impression in one way or another.  We take a look at all 9 players below with notes from their workout as well as the video from the Preseason All-State West.

Nine to Know: Stock Up from the PAS West


Calvert Clark OF / RHP / Charlotte Christian, NC / 2022

It is obvious with our state and overall rankings of Clark that he is very highly thought of entering his Sophomore season at Charlotte Christian.  In the outfield and offensively Clark did not disappoint putting together an impressive workout, verifying he is a top talent.  It was his performance on the mound that dropped jaws and created a buzz.  With effortless ease, Clark sat 90-92 with a spin rate ranging 2250 - 2468 rpm.  The breaking ball is hard with a sharp sweep through the entire zone.  Scouts will have work to do on the Clemson commit to determine where his future value may lie.
