No. 10 Grant Burleson

Grant BurlesonLHP Grant Burleson (Parkside, 2017) was one of the first ever breakout performers for PBR Maryland at our inaugural event the Maryland Preseason ID. Following his performance, Burleson received a lot of interest from numerous schools across the mid-atlantic region and ultimately made his commitment this past summer to the University of Maryland.

Burleson made the initial rankings in the top five and for last half of the year has held on to the No. 3 spot in Maryland. Currently Burleson also sits at No. 131 in the overall class of 2017 rankings. This 2016 season we should see Burleson come into his own as he will see an increased role on the Parkside Rams staff.

The video and scouting report on Burleson are from the Maryland Preseason ID in February of 2015. The talented lefty could be a potential riser in the overall rankings this upcoming year.
