I would have to say that this team is very well put together. They have an all around approach to the way they are handling this team and it shows in their practices and meetings. I'm excited to watch my kids play for this team this year and I hope we have a great year with many more to come. The team site is awesome, whoever did their website design did an amazing job. ( www.eastcoastwhitecaps.com ) Look forward to next practice coach(s)! -Ronnie

NCAA Division I Contact Period begins today

Rick at Informed Athlete ·
Just a reminder - after having been in a Quiet or Dead recruiting period since Nov. 6, NCAA Division I baseball coaches enter a Contact Period today that continues until almost the end of August. Face-to-face off-campus contact will be permissible for Division I coaches with 2018 HS grads and their families or legal guardians. The only exception to that is a four-day "Dead Period" from April 9-12 (no face-to-face contact at any location) in conjunction with the opening of the Spring NLI...

Is off campus face-to-face contact permissible for 2019 HS grads during contact period?

It's permissible for college baseball coaches at all levels other than Division I. Division I coaches aren't permitted to have off-campus face-to-face contact with 2019's until July 1.

Early Recruit Signing

I am new to this forum and very appreciative to have found it. My son is a 2020 and will be our first to go through the recruiting process. Both his mother and I played collegiate sports but that was too long ago and it appears the recruiting process has evolved over the years. My question is this; If coaches are not allowed to contact players how are they entering into a verbal commitment with Freshman, Sophomores etc? Do the players initiate and make all of the contact? My son is outgoing...

Travel coaches are typically the most often conduit for the early commit process. School shows interest by contacting the travel coach. Sometimes it's HS coach, but that's pretty rare, and I think probably getting even less common as the years go by.

As a parent getting to this site early in your son's recruiting will benefit your son and provide reason & sanity in your household. You'll be able to gather intel to help guide your motivated son. Please know that your son is early in the process; any kids you see committing as a Freshman or Sophomore are taking themselves off the "recruiting market" at the advantage of the college who "verbally" offered. There are exceptions. Early communication by a college coach is typically...

Thanks for the replies, I will definitely use the search tool. As for his circumstances; we are in Southern Missouri and have a well known travel program in our area.

I have confidence in his development ability and he schedules showcase type tournaments if the ability level of the boys...

Grades, study skills, lots of reading are equally important. Start getting a handle on the quality of the HS guidance counselor. Make sure your son is taking the hardest classes he can successfully navigate. Begin to get a handle on the colleges you can afford and which may interest you (the list will evolve up until the end). Use every family trip to drop by a college (any college will do) so your son can begin to get a feel. A 2020 has the chance to really push his academics; the higher...

My son and I wrote his initial email to coaches together and we worked on sending them together (to almost 200 coaches at all levels). We talked about what coaches might want to know about him, and did what we called "practice visits" to local colleges to get a sense of what he wanted to know about schools and programs. He had a couple of coaches contact him through his high school coach (son is a 2018) before they could officially talk to him, but he has pretty much handled all...

This week PG is letting everyone have full access to the site, it's their Holiday present to the baseball community and it's awesome. Having said that,what is listed for the class of 2020 is from a very very very small group of participants and not indicative of what that class actually has going on. PG can only correlate what they have seen and measured and in an average PG event the 60 times and OF velocities aren't measured. Those are only done during things like showcases and the BCS. I...

I like this portion of what you said "...don't really want him caught up in the hype of the PBR or PG rankings, recruiting sites etc" Truth is many good players never get ranked simply because they don't attend PBR or PG events. How can someone really say "Player X is the number one player in Virginia". That statement can in no way be validated unless every baseball player in Virginia was assessed. What I wonder is how many players go onto to the next level without ever attending one of...

Re: Early Recruit Signing

Iowamom23 ·
There are two things I think you need from PBR or PG or similar events. One is a sense of how you compare to other players of your age and position. It's how you determine if you really are D1 material--or not. Second is measurables. It matters to have a third party say you run so fast or hit so hard. You can get both of those things without getting wrapped up in ratings. You, as parents, just have to keep your heads.

Redsdad....the OP's son doesn't just want to play at the next level, he wants to play D1. While I agree 100% it is entirely possible to move onto playing baseball in college without attending a PBR/PG event I'm just not certain how many players can move onto playing D1 without attending ANY of these events. Out of the 17 players your organization assisted, how many went D1?

I've know plenty of kids that reached D1 level without PBR or PG. Going directly to local and regional camps, and specific college camps.

Very good advice so far, as usual. Support him throughout the process. Don't get caught up with the "We" vs "He" criticisms. Do your job as a parent and help him learn along the way. Most HS kids don't act like 40 year old men. Talk to your travel coach and leverage his network. Define your targets and be honest in your self evaluation. I would suggest PG or PBR events for the potential exposure, especially Ft Myers and Jupiter. Have fun, hold on and understand there is no handbook.

Re: Early Recruit Signing

2020dad ·
First off those are some great numbers for your son kudos! Second I would start thinking about showcasing if my son had those numbers. The pitch velocity might be borderline for a showcase but that exit velocity is huge!! And Gov, I also see a fair amount of kids who go D1 without showcasing but it's generally local kids and not necessarily too of the roster kids. If you have the D1 dream it's very very helpful to do PBR or PG. And honestly not to give PG a free plug but they have become so...

Does PG allow a player to have exit velocity measured and posted outside of a showcase? I thought I saw where you could pay a small fee at Lakepoint and have this measured - assumed it got passed along to PG and posted.

Me too, Gov. Not just college camps, but being seen on their travel team or even (hard as it might be to believe!) their high school team. There is a regional component to this, I think. PBR is big in certain states, and completely non-existent in others. PG is omnipresent in the Southeast, but not nearly as big in the West. OTOH, I know a number of kids ranked highly by PG who have never played a PG event . . .

Re: Early Recruit Signing

While I think it's great for any kid to move on utilizing whatever avenue, I don't particularly buy into the premise that it's the best approach to not utilize PG. It's a little like saying we've had this pitcher or that pitcher move on to college. That's great, but did they maximize their opportunity by having a pitching coach? 85 plus will generally get you a decent spot in college. However if you had a pitching coach help get you over 90, you have a lot more options, and often better...

Absolutely, do PG and/or PBR showcases if it is beneficial to you. And for lots of kids it will be. My only point is that it is possible to not do a showcase and get to a kid's dream school -- and that in certain regions of the country it is actually quite common. Just out of curiosity, I looked up the commitments of the current junior class (2018) to UCLA -- of the 9 commitments listed, 8 are ranked in the Top 300 nationally by PG. Just 3 of the 9 have done a PG showcase (and of course zero...

I get the impression that there are a ton of parents and kids out there that do not have the skills and connections necessary to manage the process of recruitment well. Some do have many of the skills necessary and may have the necessary contacts (a really good travel coach may be all this is required). But, for those that do not have the complete skill set, a PG showcase - at the appropriate time - can prove invaluable in getting the kid seen by an appropriate audience and getting the...

That sounds like a very successful program, and I won't pick on it. I was actually curious at the numbers. I think others on here have explained it better...is it possible to go D1 without PG/PBR exposure, YUP! Will it likely open up more possibilities if you have PG/PBR exposure, especially if you are trying to go more than 50 miles from home, YUP!

Not 100% accurate IMO. I've explained this many times, but our 5-10/85 mph younger one would not have benefitted from big showcase exposure. All they woulda seen is a 5-10/85 mph guy vs. a crop of 90+ guys and about the best he could hope for is being ignored. At worst, his lack of velocity and size would have been accentuated and permanently kept him off their lists. This was in fact what happened to him when he attended a regional showcase in Northern CA. He was ignored or permanently...
