Each of the past 5 years have featured the Preseason All-State event in North Carolina.  A premier event for premier talent in North Carolina, from day 1, we have seen a lot of very talented prospects workout at this event prior to their spring season.  Coming off each individual player's preseason workout, this event tends to see players blow up their numbers, giving coaches and scouts a reason to take notice as they prep their spring schedules for evaluation. Since 2017, PBR has seen 338 Preseason All-State Players commit to play college baseball.

Today we take a look at back at some of the top performances from the history of the North Carolina Preseason All-State.
