The player profiles in PBR’s vast database received well over 7.5 million hits in 2018.  Players from each region in North Carolina drove coaches, scouts, and fans to their PBR profile to learn more.  Today we take a look at No. 7 in the 2018 countdown of the most viewed profiles from North Carolina

 

No. 7 – Jordyn Adams

Possibly the top athlete from the 2018 MLB Draft, Adams had a breakout moment at the USA Baseball National High School Invitational.  Green Hope HS finished 2nd at the event, the highest ever finish for a North Carolina team.  Adams was extremely disruptive throughout the tournament, turning the heads of scouts and decision makers in attendance.  Adams was drafted and signed with the Angels who took him in the 1st round with the 17th overall pick.  Adams had been committed to North Carolina to play both football and baseball.

Scouting Report

April 2018
Adams is a star wide receiver and the son of the defensive line coach at North Carolina. He is committed to the Tar Heels for both sports and has long been expected to be unsignable and ticketed because of his two-sport status and relative rawness. That may still be the case, but his performance at the NHSI has teams thinking a little harder about him. In the first round, facing LHP 
Luke Bartnicki (Walton HS, GA), Adams opened the game with a hard groundball to shortstop. He got down the line in four seconds and looked safe, but was called out. He later smacked a slider from Bartnicki through the left side for an RBI double on what should have been a routine single. He didn’t break stride and took second despite the throw from the outfield being cut off. Adams wasn’t cheated out of any hits Thursday, scorching three balls, one of which was a triple down the left-field line. He also stole four bases. After one of his singles, he scored without a ball being put in play. He stole second, took off for third on the next pitch, which got by the catcher and allowed Adams to easily round the bag and score. He didn’t record a hit in the semifinals, but all of his outs were loud. Adams is extremely athletic and does everything on the field with ease. He uses a big leg kick to load and drives the ball with a smooth, quick swing. He takes long, easy strides to chew up ground on the bases and in center field with his 80 speed. He went 4-for-14 at the NHSI with five stolen bases, three walks and just one strikeout.
