Updated NC Class of 2023 Rankings

Brandon Hall
Executive Director of Scouting, PBR NC

The long overdue North Carolina Class of 2023 Rankings have been released.  The spring season was suppose to be the first chance for the class to begin to separate itself with the high school season.  With COVID taking a massive chunk of the spring, and filtering into the summer, PBR Scouts worked to identify as many players in the state of North Carolina as possible.

For the 2023 class, this ranking is still very early, and far from a completed process.  The class will continue to grow.  Players will continue to mature, adding strength and quickness.  Players will make gains.  In this time of COVID, you will see players re-class as well.  This is still a “jumping off” point for the 2023 class.

PBR scouts work to put player grades on as many players in the state of North Carolina as possible.  Players that attend PBR events are given player grades.  PBR Scouts also work to add player grades to players at tournaments, workouts, practices, and events, with PBR Scouts present.  As players have grades added to their data, they are added to the PBR of NC rankings database.  Players are sorted, blindly, without their name, school, or commitment.  Through the sort, the rankings process begins to take affect.

Today we release the top 125 players in the state of North Carolina’s 2023 class.  The 2023 class sees 100 players added to the rankings after the summer and fall seasons.  With close to 400 players in the rankings database, this list will continue to grow as PBR Scouts continue to work to see the players across North Carolina.
