Ever wonder were players from your state are playing? Here is are some state participation insights based on freshman player's home state or country and where they are playing. Countries include Canada, Puerto Rico and Dominican Republic.
My son is looking at a school that is currently a NAIA school. In the year 2017, the school will become a D2 school. When does the D2 recruiting guidelines take effect. My son is a senior this year and we are wondering if this school will follow NAIA or D2 guidelines?
Hi folks -- We're based in Toronto (so not in the HS baseball mainstream), and my son is a catcher in his junior year who is aspiring to play U.S. college baseball. We'd like to attend one or two showcases this summer, and are just wondering if any of you could recommend what our best choice(s) might be. My son would like to study sports management, and we're targeting a variety of D1, D2, D3 and NAIA schools. What showcase would give us the best bang for the buck? Thanks very much for your ...
The school might provide an institutional "letter of intent" to prospects during their transition period, but they won't be able to offer an NCAA Letter of Intent to prospects until they officially become an NCAA Division II school.
I had similar questions, here is the thread: http://community.hsbaseballweb...19#35365985188449319 Son is a 2017 as well and the school just reclassified last month. There is a two year waiting period for post-season play, so this year (our kids' high school senior year) and next year (their college freshman year) they will not be eligible for post season. This may be different for different schools and/or conferences.
Thanks for you replies - that's helpful. Just wondering about NLI signing, my guess that would not be one to sign since they won't be a D2 until next year and the NLI signing would be this school year.
I know in my area the migration from Naia to D2 is mostly complete. The schools that were gonna moved, have moved. Those that are still NAIA are staying there. Now there has been some migration, from the Gliac to other leagues. But I believe the NAIA to D2, is mostly over in these parts.
BBPlayer22, the following NCAA actions are effective Sept. 1: Cal State San Marcos, Concordia - Irvine, Concordia-Portland, Embry-Riddle (Florida), and Oklahoma Baptist become active D2 members. Westminster College in Utah moves to year 3 of the D2 transition period toward active membership. Auburn Univ-Montgomery, Biola Univ, Davenport Univ, and Purdue U Northwest move to year 2 of the D2 transition period. Also, as NYDAD mentioned, NYIT was approved as an active D2 member for this year.
Rick; This now provides an opportunity for the West Coast baseball player to enjoy the increased competition of 2 very strong Division 2 conferences form his skills. Great academic and baseball facilities. http://goccaa.org/index.aspx?path=baseball and the http://thepacwest.com/sports/2..._Member%20List.aspx? Bob
A couple of D2 to D1 moves are also in the works: (1) Cal Baptist: www.cbulancers.com/news/2017/1...e.aspx?path=baseball (2) UCSD: http://ucsdguardian.org/2017/0...uture-for-going-d-1/ This is a good thing. We need more D1 baseball in California -- only 23 of the 295 D1 baseball schools are in California.
You don’t target every college program there is. You need to have an idea where he potentially fits in. Otherwise you will waste thousands of dollars on the wrong showcases. You don't just throw spaghetti off the wall to see what sticks. He needs to sit down with a baseball knowledgeable person who knows his game. They need to determine what level of college ball he might be able to play. Then you pick conferences at that level. Then you determine which schools in the conferences would also...
John S, RJM is spot on. Your son starts by creating a vetted list of colleges that are a fit for him. Vetted academically and athletically by him, you, his coaches, his guidance counselor, scouts, other third parties, etc. Once that list is compiled, he reaches out to the baseball coaches and the admissions reps of the schools on his list. Engaging the baseball coaches is always important. Engaging the Admissions reps and expressing interest is particularly important at D3 and at schools...
