"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" looks back at the Athletes Lab Scout Day held in Maiden, NC. Highlighted today are some of the players who stood out during their pro style workout. All are uncommitted.
