The Five: 5 to Follow from the Uncommitted Upperclass Games


Matt Payne
North Carolina Director of Scouting

"The Five" is a weekly blog that highlights high-performing athletes from across North Carolina.  PBR Scouts use information gathered from PBR events, PBR Scout Days, and PBR Tournaments to put together the weekly list of five players.

This week “The Five” looks back at the Uncommitted Upperclass Games held at BB&T Field in High Point.  It provided prospects with an opportunity late in the Fall to showcase their talents in a pro style workout followed by live game action.  Highlighted today are five uncommitted players who turned in good performances and will look to build off that as the spring season approaches.  There is plenty of versatility on this list with four guys being from the 2020 class and one from the 2021 class.
