Rising HS Sophomore Advice

This is my second post on the site. I received great advice from my first post, but I am still unclear about some things. I am a future sophomore with dreams and aspirations of playing at Notre Dame, going pro, etc. My freshman year was disappointing from a baseball standpoint.

Recruiting Catchers

BackstopMom ·
We’ve been to a number of camps with our 2020 (HeadFirst, Showball, Stanford, Princeton among others) and we’ve made a few observations about schools recruiting catchers. For example, at Princeton and Georgetown our 2020 was told that their starting catchers were both walk ons which seems to suggest that this isn’t uncommon. After many of the showcase events, our son would tell us that all the catchers there felt like they were just there to facilitate recruiting for pitchers. We’re just...

I've been reading a lot of recruiting advice on this forum, and much of it seems to be specific to the level of the player.

Does the team you play for truly help you get recruited? Do they charge you extra for that recruiting help? They shouldn't.

The Texas Dukes is a small organization which has been helping kids get recruited for 12 years. The organization knows all of its players and their families and works side by side to help navigate and find college...

Football and baseball in high school

I have a question specifically for those whose sons played football and baseball in high school, those who know of other kids who played or currently play both sports in high school or lastly, those who've recruited baseball players who play(ed) football.

Swagg: Welcome to the site. From your profile I see you are a 2021 RHP. It's early in the recruiting game, unless you are in the small % that the P5 are looking at. I would have a better vibe if the college had CALLED, not e-mailed your HS coach. At your stage I would look to find a third party (PG or UA) or an inexpensive showcase that can get your measurables (MPH , primarily) for pitching. I think "school specific" camps are good, later on. After attending $$ showcases, tournaments , etc,...

Did your son attend this fielding camp after the school/coach had expressed serious interest? I ask because often when my son emails a school, he gets an email response that is really just a form camp invitation. I assume going to a camp in that case is unlikely to generate real interest from a school, unless a player really offers something pretty extraordinary?

Welcome to the site! My player is also a 2021, and I can tell you that lots of D1 schools are actively recruiting rising sophomores right now (especially pitchers). We were at a big 15u tournament last week that had dozens of colleges scouting the games, including P5 and mid-level schools. So it is possible that this school is interested in you specifically since they emailed your coach. That being said, it is also true that many college "prospect camps" are money makers. You should ask your...

He had become a "high follow" with coach once he ran fastest 60 at a Showball showcase with 225 players in December. Coach sent son nice personalized e-mail which really changed him from "camper" to prospect.

Camps are tricky. You could go to most team's camp and see 100 kids with that one group of 5-6 players grouped together. That group will be the "recruits". The challenge is to know whether you are being considered for that group. Typically the "emails" are marketing to get $$. My 2015's experience was if a RC said to him that they liked his play and wanted all the coaches to see him then the camp was considered. This camp was also used as our unofficial visit opportunity and would go to the...

Swagg - Welcome to the site. I agree with Ripken and the other posters to find some inexpensive camps to "get your feet wet" and get some measurable's first unless you know that the school has you on their board already. I would also suggest multi-school camps to increase your exposure to many coaches at a cheaper price. I believe that once a school has shown legit interest in you then the individual school camp makes good sense, but not until you have had some sort of dialog with the...
