** Yes, I realize many D1 pitchers cruise upper 80’s. But to be recruited they better ring the (90) bell a few time at recruiting events.
Agree, we know several lefties that are hitting 87-88, but even non P5 D1s are wanting the 90. Granted, done of them are 6'4, and that plays into it. Assuming he isn't maxed out on velo, he projects D1. Take him to some camps at schools he is interested in. If they start falling all over him, you know you are in the right pond.
That is far from what I am seeing. 87-88 as a LHP will get you an offer (D1)
Yup. The size will also be very attractive, but even a 5'11" LHP throwing 87 will get all sorts of D1 interest. There gets to be a certain point where you actually have to show that you can pitch, but a 2022 LHP who has touched 86 is intriguing.
BTW, start working on those marks and test scores! That can also help out a coach/RC a lot, and will widen out the schools that he can have appeal for.
