We would like to thank all who participated in PBR Ohio's Northern Preseason Preview Showcase. This was a great opportunity for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 prospects to be put on college radars. Many players impressed during their individual workouts at the showcase. Below we have the complete statistical results from the event as well as the top performers across various different categories. 

In the coming weeks, we will be adding and updating profiles for each of the players in attendance, including complete analysis and video.
