I’ve followed HSBBW for a couple years now and really appreciate the insight provided. I have a 2015 RHP. We’re just starting the recruiting process and have a question.
It seems like the big D1 schools do most of their recruiting the fall of junior year – especially pitchers. I see a lot of info on 2015’s verbally committing to this or that big school. My son is close but not at the level yet that he would be noticed and heavily recruited by a D1. Needs to gain about 4 on his fast ball. He should be there a year from now. Is it the case that most big D1’s have their recruiting wrapped up by fall of Jr year or is it just my imagination? Are there still opportunities at D1’s through senior year? I’m not talking about maybe a few opportunities, like draft may open up a few spots, or whatever, I’m talking about the majority of the spots. Should our focus be on good JUCO’s and D2’s since we may have missed the D1 window?
