Prep Baseball Report

News and Notes From Around the Country

Phil Kerber
Assoc. Scout/JUCO Wire Editor

The JUCO Wire is a new weekly feature that will continue to build on the Prep Baseball Report’s unparalleled coverage of amateur baseball across the country. The JUCO Wire will provide updated information on junior college transfers, players moving on, who’s hot, and any other relevant news from around the country. 

The JUCO Wire is a compilation of boots-on-the-ground scouting, information collected from our state-specific scouting staff, outside submissions, and any other news and nuggets gleaned throughout the year.

Previously, News and Notes From Around the Country had included an Uncommitted Spotlight section, highlighting uncommitted prospects from Junior Colleges around the country. The Uncommitted Spotlight is now published as a separate, standalone piece.

College of Southern Nevada - Uncommitted Spotlight
Howard JC: Position Players - Uncommitted Spotlight
Howard JC: Pitchers - Uncommitted Spotlight
Prospects Around the Country - Uncommitted Spotlight

If you are a current Junior College Coach and would like to see your players in the Uncommitted Spotlight, email [email protected] with all relevant information/video.
