My older son college 2019 went HA D3. He was an OF player started looking summer/fall of Sr year. The D3's and NAIA are getting into their serious recruiting of Sr's shortly . He had multiple requests for pre reads from multple HA schools across the country but did not go ED for the simple fact we needed to know how much $ we were going to have to pay above and beyond our college fund before he commited to any school and that info comes out later. We dont qualify for need based aid but live in a high cost state so not rich by any means and he was not the only one going to be going to college. Did it cost him some schools and coaches support at his then top schools? Yes it did but he still got into a top 20 HA school with a useful degree and had a succussful baseball run. Just food for thought if it helps.
