First time poster...I've been stalking the site for awhile and appreciate all of the great info! It has truly helped me guide my 2020 LHH Catcher as he chases his dream. His dream is to play for a school in the south at the highest level possible w/ highest academics possible. He plays for a top travel team in Midwest and is just beginning his recruiting process. He does have interest from a few mid-tier D1 programs in Midwest but has been seen by very few outside of the Midwest to this point. His travel team coach is very well connected in the Midwest but very few of programs commits go south. His travel team will be in several big tourneys this summer (WWBA in Atlanta, Music City Classic, etc) but want to have him get a jump start if possible. To date, he has only participated in PBR showcases.
My question is where (or perhaps how?) is the best place to get him on the radar of Southern schools prior to the summer circuit? I was thinking either the PG Pitcher/Catcher in Iowa, one of his dream schools top prospect camps, or the UA / Baseball Factory National Invite (haven't heard much about this one - just received an invite so thinking not great?). The PG Pitcher/Catcher seems to make the most sense but I couldn't find much info on this in terms of colleges attending or know if info coming out of there will get to all colleges. The budget (and time) is strained w/ travel ball, training and life so not able to go crazy w/ showcases/camps but able to afford probably one this spring prior to HS season.
Any advice is appreciated.
Yours in baseball,
