So, CBI, all these stats are interesting, but they are kind of cluttering up the board. Which of these numbers do you thing are most interesting or significant? # of college players: estimated number of hs seniors? % instate vs. % out of state? % D3 vs. % juco? Do you see meaningful trends between regions or something like that?
In other words, what do you think we should be taking from all of this? That would help us to look at all the stats.
Anotherparent, this is a top level view.
When you are saying these topics are cluttering up the board, please explain.
Are you being forced to review the topic?
What state are you from? How far are you into the research process?
What are your target schools? Has that schools recruited from your state in the past 3 years?
When I was doing the travel circuit with my son in 2009 - 2014, we traveled all along the East Coast for Tournaments and Showcase. My spend was between 5k to 7.5k annually for training and playing. We went to the week long PG tournament in Georgia, fortunately I had a relative living there, thus my lodging cost was only food.
Fortunately, my son was a two way player, so he got the maximum # of at bats and usually pitched 5 to 6 innings.
Question, how many players from Ohio are playing in Florida or have played in Florida for the last 3 years. In my humble, understanding the state demographics provide some insights as to where a player from the state might find a roster spot.
Note, this is a top level view of which student-athletes and parents can hopefully establish a realistic area to target schools.
Subsequently using some of these articles listed below, reading these threads and other resources, a student-athlete and parent can hopefully narrow their target schools quicker.
