I've posted periodically for a while and just need a sanity check. My 2024 has really good metrics: He's 6'2, 210, runs a 6.98, 101 EV, 1.95 POP, hits to all fields with power, frames, blocks, etc. He's done really well and is ranked within the top 250 of PG for 2024. He was a Preseason All-American for PG and All-District here in Texas. It's just, he is simply not being recruited, certainly not with any urgency. He's on a top of the line travel team (maybe too good as they have several of the top 2024 catchers so he doesn't get much time behind the plate, he DH's every game) that team includes a catcher committed to LSU and one committed to Vandy who are both ranked in the top 50.
I played D1 at Cal so have some sense of how this all works but with this being the summer between Jr/Sr year I know the timeline is getting short. I thought some school would come along by now.
Last week we went to the Stanford camp. 30 coaches, my son played well, even hitting a GS in a live game in front of Coach Esquer and many on the staff of other schools. They told him they liked what they saw but then...well I'm not sure? No one reached out to him or spoke with him at camp re: recruitment. I just want to help him find a place to play and time/money is short. He has the PG National Showcase next week at Chase Field in AZ and then the WWBA in Georgia the following week. I should say we have had limited contact with Pepperdine, AFA, and the Naval Academy. Tulane called one time last year but no f/u.
Lastly, he tried out for Area Codes but just cant seem to make it. Texas is pretty well stacked with catchers but he is the PG ranked #3 catcher for Texas and played well at the tryouts. The Rangers roster just came out...nothing.
I'm just a little bummed on a few fronts and perhaps I'm not seeing some "fatal flaw" in his game--but I don't think its there. Maybe it's because he is not super flashy? Not sure. Is there someone out there with helpful thoughts? I barely know what to tell him anymore--the "just keep working hard and good things will happen" phrase is wearing thin but it seems to be my only option right now.
