Reply to "College vs draft - scout attention"

I want to add, in our sons case, he was offered by the Yankees 5 round money out of HS. Every other scout, told him going to college would be his best option.  They were right. 

He played often in HS up in Jupiter and the Cardinals had their eye on him for years, and he was drafted 71st pic out ( round 2) of Clemson 3 years later, the  drafting scout who covered the carolinas is now the Cardinals manager..  So it doesn't matter because they contact that area scout to follow. As an FYI, that Yankee scout became a manager in the Cardinal organization, so remember baseball is a very, very small world.

Remember that always!

Growing up in college, learning to face adversity prepared him for the next step.  Unfortunately, becoming weary  from rehab due to constant nagging injuries, he walked away with some money and a degree which cost him nothing ( no debt).

The key is having options, so I suggest exploring all. If you have a secure commitment for college and if scouts are asking to see him, that's just another option but be realistic in what you are asking for.
