Context: My son is a top 30 ranked player in state top 5 at his position for the class of 2023 (catcher) . Very strong showcase numbers, is a 4.0 student and goes to one of the top 3 programs for baseball in our state. Summer team and training situation is also very good. We feel like we've don the right things to this point.
We were planning to be in the thick of the recruiting process at this point and have lots of resources to help us connect with college recruiters but I am starting to get worried about roster numbers and our strategy. He was not one of the 15 or players in our state who already "accepted" offers at P5 schools and I hope those players are safe as well well but am worried for them too.
For anyone looking out for a 2023 player, what do you think will changed for them? What will numbers look like in a couple of years? Are you changing your approach to the recruiting process? Will these players that were offered as freshman lose their spots?
Any thoughts on your approach would be appreciated.
