Please check out this Dec 2015 video interview with the current Missouri State Head Coach, half way through the video he gets into detail about his recruiting views.   I thought this would be helpful to all of us with kids that desire to play in college.  The recent posts about when to initiate contact and what to include in emails, and what is  important to him, how he recruits, how far away he recruits and why.  He covers a lot. I just watched it and I think it's a...

Football and baseball in high school

hshuler ·
I have a question specifically for those whose sons played football and baseball in high school, those who know of other kids who played or currently play both sports in high school or lastly, those who've recruited baseball players who play(ed) football. With lots of recruiting (i.e. Jupiter) going on during the fall football season, do you feel like it's a major or minor disadvantage not to participate in fall baseball showcases from a recruiting standpoint? Or maybe it's no big deal?

Too late for elite academic recruiting for 2016 grad?

A few questions, and then I'll give some background. What is the recruiting landscape like for a player in the spring of his senior year? What academically elite D1 colleges still recruit at this point (top 50 US News and World Reports rankings)? What academically elite colleges would recruit a player who did not apply to their school already this late in the game?  Do the Ivy's or other elite college recruit this late in a seniors HS career? What would be best way to get out new...

It is legal. One of the first sports I saw it happening was volleyball with volunteer assistant coaches at the school also coaching club teams. The harder you look, the more you will see assistant coaches at colleges coaching club teams in the off-season.

@TheOldBallGame I would rephrase your question to say "show me where in the rule book is says it is illegal?" I don't mean to be confrontational, but rules can't cover every what if, even rule books as big as the NCAA's. I would say, show the rule that says it is illegal. To reinforce the fact it is not illegal, look at the volleyball coaches at Stanford (I am using volleyball because this is where it has been happening the longest). Both the paid Assistant Coach Jason Mansfield and...

A few years ago a friend's son blossomed his senior year. His high school team was loaded. He didn't get on the mound until senior year. He absolutely dominated. All the local D1s expressed interest. One was an Ivy. The dad had attended the Ivy for undergrad and law school. He couldn't manage any pull. The kid was told he had to get accepted outside baseball. He didn't. He ended up pitching in the A10. By senior year roster spots are typically filled. At an academically elite school the...

DaddyO just so you know, Fenway is the guy here. Even though I know much less than he's forgotten I'll wade into say 2 things. One, I think your son missed the boat. If he wants to play baseball at a top academic D1 I think his best option is to take a gap year and work in getting recruited for next year at Ivies, Patriot league schools, etc. With his academics, worst case scenario is that he has to go through the trouble of re-applying to the UC's and others again. Two, sometimes you get...

His thoughts were that he didn't cast as big of a net as he should have, but the reality is that he was a borderline prospect 9 months ago who did not attend the camps that would have gotten him a look, and if he had he still would have not been the prospect he is now. He's applied to a few D3 schools with support, and has been honest with the coaches in that he is considering multiple schools. I'd figured the ship had sailed for the Ivy League, but was probably more interested in late...

" He's also been admitted to several D1 schools that offered no support in admissions but are giving him the basic "you can walk on" email." Most of the D1s have locked up their recruiting and spent the available scholarship dollars at this point for the 2016s and probably most 2017s, too. However, there are ~7+ players on each team that are not getting athletic scholarship dollars, and are vying for a spot. If your son gets his pitching numbers up, there could be an opportunity. Many D3s...

I agree with JCG about the US News rankings. A student may have to make a choice between playing baseball or going to a top 50 ranked USN school without playing baseball. An aside - I understand that the OP's son isn't interested in a list of possibilities outside a top 50 school, yet for others reading this thread who are looking at colleges with a child, I want to point out that some students with a high ACT score and enough AP passing test scores make JuCo a non-possibility.

Daddyo, Okay, gotcha. Thanks for clarifying. Yes, unfortunetly I think he's missed the D1 & Ivy boat, but that it fine. He's got options to academically elite D3 schools as you described them, and an opportunity to play D3 baseball. That is nothing to sneeze at, and frankly an opportunity that not many people get. Considering the limited exposure your son demonstrated in front of college coaches, I'd say he got more than his fair share of attention if multiple coaches supported him.

Not much to add here, but walk-ons do sometimes, if rarely make it. Had a nephew who was a recruited walk-on at a low ranked midwestern D1 and he was cut. Still at the school cause he loves it. ON the other hand, son's HS teammate was a recruited as a walk-on to a UC, he too was cut. Played club ball for a year and is now at a JC.

When my son was a junior in HS, the starting catcher received an offer and committed to a high academic small liberal arts D3 during the spring of his senior year. It can happen. The cards shuffle for D3 just like D1 (school thought they had a commit, now a spot is open) - just a little later.

You've gotten some excellent advice - it's really too late for D1 recruiting unless a school has a unique situation arise. I'm curious, what do you see as his primary position? If you mentioned that earlier and I missed it, I apologize. The only other option you might consider is a post graduate prep school year. That gets him another whole year to both mature athletically and have another shot at recruiting. There are several elite preps on the east coast (that's my area of knowledge, there...

In looking at your sons's athletic history and clear enjoyment and success at playing multiple sports, I wonder if choosing a school which has club sports in his sports may provide the athletics he needs. Or were you looking to leverage baseball to get into a school he wouldn't otherwise be admitted?

Thanks for all the responses here and assistance. I'll try to address as much of the feedback as a I can. He wants to play an NCAA sport and get that experience. In the end he knows he needs to pick a school where he would be happy if he broke his leg on the first day of classes. He'd choose a great fit/school over a less good fit where he could play an NCAA sport. I guess he wants the best of both worlds, and as a 18 year old this is the time to have these dreams.

Daddyo, As others have pointed out, it could be a possibility that your son gets picked up his senior year after a D1 committed recruit decommits or fails to get admitted. It does happen and nearly happened to my son his junior year with an SEC school. However, the big difference is the SEC school had seen my son play a dozen times over the spring and summer…they knew who he was and what he was capable of. Your senior son is an unknown quantity to a lot of these D1 schools in the middle of...

Does your son want to pound his chest and say he was on a D1? Or is getting on the field more important? Players should go where they are loved not where there's just some interest. When there's just interest chances are there's a recruit ahead of him at his position (maybe two) who are getting love. Be a player not an insurance policy for the coach.
