Commitment Tracker: In-State Division II Signees


Brandon Hall
Mid-Atlantic Executive Director

The early signing period for NCAA schools allows prospects that have committed to put pen to paper, making the commitment official and biding.  PBR works to track commitments of high school and junior college players, adding to a search-able database that can be used by players as they are working to get a feel for the process, how schools of interest approach recruiting, and to see how similar players have faired at their selected schools.

Based on a three year study from 2016 – 20219, PBR Scouts estimate the state of North Carolina will typically produce approximately 500 college baseball players with each graduating class.  Over the past couple of years, the state of North Carolina has seen that number drop, as schools at every level of college are working to manage their roster with players receiving extra years based on COVID-19 interruptions in seasons.

During the three year study, less than 50% of the players in NC that would go on to play college baseball had committed by the time of the early signing period.  Those numbers seemed to stand-up over the past couple of COVID years.  This fall, the class of 2022 saw 209 players in North Carolina committed to play college baseball at the early signing period.

Below we take a look at some of the recruiting classes with North Carolina High School Players.  The state is littered with programs that will compete for conference and national championships.  Today we break down some of the programs that made big waves in North Carolina as D2 or JUCO Programs.

Division II Programs Hitting NC Hard

 

We started our look at NC commitments with players that committed to Power 5 programs.  We then moved to NC players committed to other Division I programs.  Today we dive into the In-State Division II.  Wingate University won the Division II National Title in 2021 with a roster littered with NC prospects.  Several other DII programs have been knocking on the same door in recent years. 

*The commitments listed below are not official.  This list was compiled by information posted by players, high schools, and the universities during the signing period.
