Would love anyone's thoughts on this. Here is where we're at:
My son is a 6'2" 195 pound CF/RHP. Starter on his varsity team since Freshman year. Top-3 player on his travel team, been to IMG, PG (including Lake Pointe) and PBR showcases. Runs a 7.03 60, outfield velocity 92, bat exit velocity 95, top fastball on the mound 87. Plays football (which meant he had to miss a few fall travel tournaments last year) but has been working extremely hard in the off season and barring injury, should have a monster junior year. He has a 3.7 GPA and scored a 1210 on the SAT in his first attempt.
He's had several nibbles. A mid-tier D1 school followed him like a puppy dog at all of his games at Lake Point last year, he's done an unofficial visit at a Big Ten school, he's gone to camps at a few top D-1 schools and gone up to speak to coaches who clearly knew who he is. All good, right?
My feeling is that signing day with his senior year is fast approaching - too fast. So many top programs already have committed 9-14 players in his class, while he hasn't had any solid verbal offers. Clearly he is on a few radar screens, but I'm wondering if given his stats/reputation he should have been committed by now?
He's really hoping to go to a top-30 baseball school primarily as a centerfielder who possibly can pitch. Are our hopes too high? Should we attack more mid-tier D-1 programs? D-2/D-3? Or should we just chill out and expect to gain interest and possibly offers once the college season is over?
Again, any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
