The Five: 5 2021 Standouts from PAS East


Matt Payne
North Carolina Director of Scouting

"The Five" is a weekly blog that highlights high-performing athletes from across North Carolina.  PBR Scouts use information gathered from PBR events, PBR Scout Days, and PBR Tournaments to put together the weekly list of five players.

This week “The Five” turns its attention to PBR North Carolina’s Preseason All State East Event. The event featured lots of talent from each class.  Highlighted today are five uncommitted standouts from the 2021 Class.  The list features two outfielders, one catcher, one middle infielder, and one right-hand pitcher.
