As the father of a 2020 pitcher, the possibility of not getting an offer from a school my son is interested in attending has recently become more of a possibility now when before he didn't consider it.

I’m seeing several 2020s start to waiver about whether or not they want to pursue baseball in college. I think it is harder than they realized, to play for the teams they want to play for. They are solid players but are not getting attention from the schools they would want to attend. I think this is kind of the age when they start seeing the writing on the wall and decide whether or not what they can play is what they want to play. If his heart isn’t in it, it’s not going to work.
I'm seeing it with quite a few 2019's. They are choosing college life at the big state school over lower level college baseball.
Nothing new. My 2017 made this decision. Choose Big State U over playing ball at a mid-D1 school and has not looked back. IMO its the best decision he ever made. He is happy and enjoying everything college has to offer. He works 15 hours a week in addition to school and feels like he has more free time then ever on his hands.
