The Five: Uncommitted 2019 Middle Infielders

Brandon Hall
North Carolina Director of Scouting

The Signing Period arrived on November 14th for 2019 graduates across the country.  For many, this means making their commitment a binding one by signing their NLI.  For others, they are still weighing their college decisions. 

From our past studies in the Recruiting Essential articles, we know that more than half of the 2019 graduates that will commit, will still be uncommitted at the time of the early signing period.  Within the state of North Carolina, the number has been right at 35% of the class, or a little higher. 

Players are still working, and getting better.  Schools are still evaluating their current roster and their future needs.  Below is a look at 5 uncommitted middle infielders from the 2019 class, from North Carolina, that are still available and may be ready to impact the next level.  Each catcher is ranked in the just released NC Class of 2019 Rankings.
