News and Notes From Around the Country


Phil Kerber
Assoc. Scout/JUCO Wire Editor

The JUCO Wire is a new weekly feature that will continue to build on the Prep Baseball Report’s unparalleled coverage of amateur baseball across the country. The JUCO Wire will provide updated information on junior college transfers, players moving on, who’s hot, and any other relevant news from around the country. 

The JUCO Wire is a compilation of boots-on-the-ground scouting, information collected from our state-specific scouting staff, outside submissions, and any other news and nuggets gleaned throughout the year.

Previously, News and Notes From Around the Country had included an Uncommitted Spotlight section, highlighting uncommitted prospects from Junior Colleges around the country. Starting this week, the Uncommitted Spotlight will be published as a separate, standalone piece.

If you are a current Junior College Coach and would like to see your players in the Uncommitted Spotlight, email [email protected] with all relevant information/video.
