Thanks for all the feedback. Always interesting to see where these strings go. You kind of get your questioned answered and then some additional feedback which is useful as well.
Baseball and high school sports does not have to be just one thing. It can be a chance to play in college or it can be a chance to give a kid a leg up in getting into the school of their dreams. Even if that means not being likely to play or even being cut. This thread was not about making a decision on walk on or not. It was about learning if walk on was the only option how does that play into any admissions decisions.
The first choice is of course to play and get a scholarship and take over the starting CF spot in the MLB All Star game...but best to be prepared for an alternative outcome.
