Underclass Preseason All-State: Statistical Analysis


Cam Black-Araujo
Arizona Operations

This past Saturday and Sunday, the PBR Arizona staff hosted it's marquee event of the preseason with the Underclass Preseason All-State at Casteel High School in Queen Creek, Arizona. This event featured roughly 85 prospects from the 2026 and 2027 classes and featured a large crop of Arizona's top underclass prospects for a pro-style workout on Saturday, followed by live-game action on Sunday.

The event allowed our staff to collect updated data on all athletes, as well as give us an up-close look at the players ahead of the high school season and our updated rankings that will be rolling out.

Today we'll start our deep dive into the data collected at this event within this Statistical Analysis story. Over the next couple of days we’ll be diving deeper into all of the data we collected rolling out even more coverage from the event.
