Reply to "Recruiting/Future help"

He's a lefty and going to be a pitcher in college so forget all the other stuff. He is a "potential" P-5 candidate, but be aware P-5 programs are very demanding and only the best play. Higher reward, but higher risk. Better to be a big fish in a winning program than a small fish in a demanding P5 IMO, as I many of my son's friends who went that route flamed out and transferred. 

Develop a plan and work the plan. Make a list of preferred programs 30-50 and make a list of recruiting and head coaches. Profile schools based on academic/location/cost/size interest and THEN add in baseball. Focus on grades, getting bigger stronger, and then on mechanics in that order. Get into a woolforth or driveline program and focus on velo, for now forget about all of the showcase stuff, he is a lefty and once he gets to 89 the phone will be ringing. 

Search through the recruiting threads here as there is tons of good advice.

Good luck.
