P5 isn’t always the be all, end all some people view it to be. I doubt any player on Coastal Carolina or Cal Stare Fullerton wishes they were in a P5 program if it’s not as competitive as their program.
The chances or playing both ways in college are slim and none. A lot of very good hitters have only pitched in college.
If you get one P5 offer and it’s a solid program you have to ask yourself some very honest questions. Why is this one P5 offering and not others? Are they seeing something everyone else is missing? Or are they wrong about me?
Receiving and accepting a college offer is only step one. Once on campus you have to prove you deserve to be there. Put yourself in a good position to compete. I’ve seen kids accept offers from their dream, reach school and shook my head. I thought to myself, “He’ll never stick there.”
