Put another way, no college coach cares, no scout cares, about what a 15 year old throws. This is a marathon and all too many treat it as a sprint - and have their kid sprinting a marathon is a recipe for disaster.
The amount of 2020/2019 commitments to colleges would indicate you are wrong.
Not too many 2020's just yet and then 2020's that are showing committed are phenoms. PG is showing a grand total of 303 commitments for 2019 and I would assume fewer than 50 are listed for 2020. It seems like way too many "facts" are getting based on committing as a rising sophomore to a top 25 team (not even counting the Power 5 cellar dwellers). Even if you construct your facts around the 50th percentile of D1 pitchers, Goosegg's comment has a lot of merit (even more if you substitute 14 yo). The couple of 2019 pitcher commits were basically all 16 yo and up with one kid already 17 1/2.
