We take a closer look into the Virginia/DC Class of 2018 rankings with a breakdown of the class. Our player rankings are based on all the players we have had the opportunity to see whether it has been at one of our own PBR Virginia Events, games that we cover during the high school season and travel season, and finally other events that we cover over the spring/summer/fall.
