PBR NC ProCase: 2018 vs. 2019

Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

Sunday February 10th saw 25 of the top players in the 2019 and 2020 classes in North Carolina converge on Kernersville, NC and the Diamond Xtreme athletics facility.  In front of over 25 professional scouts, each player had his chance to show his skills in the pro-style workout.

By any measure, the 2019 ProCase was a huge success for all involved.  Today we take a look at the 2019 group and how they compared to the first group that went through the ProCase workout in 2018.  We will look at several key statistical categories to see if there were any statistical standouts among the best players in the state from the past two years.  We all know that players may not be "full-go" in February, but this workout is one week before the opening of spring practice and may give us a glimpse of who pro scouts will be following this spring.
