Introducing Team Carolina

Brandon Hall
Executive Director, PBR of NC

The most anticipated recruiting event in the country begins on August 1st at LakePoint in Emerson, Ga, the PBR Future Games.  The PBR Future Games typically feature 500 of the top uncommitted underclass players in the country in one spot for college coaches and pro scouts.  This year, due to COVID-19, there are some adjustments but with the live streaming features at LakePoint and the ability of PBR's "boots on the ground" nature, several adjustments were made to insure top talent would be brought to college coaches across the country.

Team Carolina will feature 23 players from North and South Carolina.  Each player is uncommitted in the 2022 or 2023 class.  Players will represent their region as part of a scout day on August 1st, followed by three games, over two days at LakePoint, taking on other regions in the PBR foot print. 

Below we will walk through the roster for Team Carolina as well as Team Carolina's schedule.  There are links to follow the event live from LakePoint through the live streaming presence, utilizing multiple cameras on each field, giving college coaches, scouts, and fans an ability to watch the game in their best way.  We also look back at some of the top performances from Team Caroline over the past two years.
