The Five: 5 2021 Standouts from the Preseason All-State


Matt Payne
Associate Scout, PBR North Carolina

In late January, nearly 100 of the top players from across the state of North Carolina, representing each region of the state and all four high school classes, converged on On Deck Academy in Pineville, NC to go participate in the PBR Preseason All-State.  Players were taken through a complete workout where college coaches, pro scouts, and PBR's scouting staff were able to collect stats and put evaluations on each player.  Each player in attendance received a video of their performance, hosted on their own PBR Player Profile as well.

While there was a lot of talent on hand, the 2021 class showed depth with several players projecting to be high level players as they continue to develop.  Working through the list of talented players, we are able to highlight 5 position players from the 2021 class that made a statement at the PBR Preseason All-State.  Below we take an in-depth look at each player with their updated stats, notes from their workout, and their player video.  All five players are uncommitted at this time and primed for big springs for their high school teams.
