The Five: Stock Rising on these 2022s 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” re-visits PBR North Carolina’s PreSeason All State East event held at Next Level in Greenville NC.  The event featured plenty of talent throughout the day.  Featured this week are five uncommitted standouts from the 2022 Class.  On this list there is one catcher, one right-hand pitcher, one outfielder, and two guys who could fit at first base or in the outfield.
