The Five: 5 Highly Ranked and Uncommitted 2020 Pitchers


Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

Just a couple of weeks ago, the North Carolina Class of 2020 Rankings were updated.  Today we dive inside those rankings to take a look at five highly ranked pitchers on that list that remain uncommitted.  Below, each player's spotlight contains statistics verified by PBR, a scouting report, and video.  Each of these five players has a chance to make an immediate impact when they choose their school. 

The list features two players that will be at this weekend's PBR Preseason All-State event in Pineville, NC.  Also on the list are two players that may garner some attention as potential dual pitcher/position players at the next level.  Each arm has put up impressive numbers to this point, but it may be their ceiling that is even more intriguing.
