will also add my 2 cents as my 2017 LHP played on a very well known national travel team. They did not have the same connections for the high academic schools he was looking at as they did for the P5 conferences, and the mid D1 schools. We absolutely had to supplement with showcases and camps (did Stanford back in its old format) in order to be seen by the coaches of the schools he was interested in. To this extent, depending upon your son's dream list, travel may or may not make sense. If he wants to come to the east coast, he needs to be seen by those schools for example. You need to look at where the high powered travel team will be and what coaches may be there. In retrospect, while yes mine played against the best competition when he played for his high powered travel team, it was not all that helpful for recruiting purposes.
