Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

The 2018 spring high school season in North Carolina generated some incredible individual moments and performances throughout all corners of the state. As the spring high school season comes to a close, Prep Baseball Report is excited to announce one player who emerged ahead of the competition at all levels in the state of North Carolina. This player has been selected not only for their outstanding statistical numbers, but also for their overall effect on their high school program.

 

Owen White

 



White, a Senior RHP from Jesse C. Carson HS lived up to, and surpassed, expectations in 2018.  A dominant season on the mound helped Carson to a North Piedmont 3A Conference title and an appearance in the 4th Round of the NCHSAA 3A State Tournament.


The 6-foot-3, 180 pounder has signed with the University of South Carolina to continue his baseball career.  White was recently selected by the Texas Rangers in the 2nd round of the 2018 MLB Draft, with pick No. 55 overall.  


White’s all-around performance, as well as the impact he has had on Jesse C Carson High School, has earned him the 2018 Prep Baseball Report North Carolina State Player of the Year honors.


White has been selected by the staff of Prep Baseball Report of North Carolina.   The team of PBR area scouts who covered the high school baseball season throughout the spring selected White amongst a strong group of candidates from across the state.  The Prep Baseball Report staff has been diligently scouting and covering baseball games at baseball diamonds across the state this spring to bring parents, athletes and fans the most comprehensive coverage of amateur baseball across the United States. The dedication and coverage allow Prep Baseball Report a credible way to identify the top athletes each year who best represent the state of Alabama.
