RR23, My financial situation made it to where I couldn't pursue them if I wanted to. Besides, Hunter is wanting to play now. He also likes to start out small with talented players and work his way to the top.Like Yavapai ,they say that their interest is peeked in him but since they recruit nationally they wanted to wait to see the whole menu before making a committment. They will be in the hunt for Hunter if he shows his talent in the D1 JUCO Division that he will be playing in. You know that Yavapai and Central Arizona and others in that Division will be sending out 90-95MPH pitchers. If you can put up a .300 plus ave. in that Division using wood you will be needed and wanted at the next level. So I really didn't make an effort to get him there yet. Hopefully he will continue playing at a quality level. We are excited for him and your son as well. Can't wait for the season to start. We have a couple of players on last years Championship Team playing college ball we are excited to follow also. Did you know that Mingus was chosen to play one of their season games at the Diamondback Chase Field. I think it was because Mingus beat the Nationally ranked Notre Dame Prep team twice to win their back to back State Championships. That should be a Great scouting opportunity for him and the Team. Hope his turn in the rotation doesn't fall on that day! He is an OF and a pitcher by Coaches choice. He may be in the mid 80's to upper 80's by then. But not enough to impress scouts as a pitcher. he locates well , has a good change and curve ball but will not over power anyone. I'd rather showcase his 6.6 to 6.8 range in the OF. Guess we will have to wait and see! Take care RR23 and good luck to Ryan.
Azallan, save your money and concentrate on son's last HS season. There are expenses that come up in JUCO that scholarships don't cover. Our son was suppose to be D1 material but grades took care of that and we are in the same boat, can't afford D1 anyway. Son really likes his JC coach and the program is nationally known. He will get plenty of playing time unlike most of D1 Freshman. The two years of JC will hopefully give you time to save up more too. Good luck.
azallan, can he get on a team that plays in 18u tournaments? If he's not eligible for the 17u WWBA East Cobb week maybe he can go to the 18u week. I would think their could be a fair amount of colleges their that week. Of course PGStaff can answer that better.

The more I learn about Juco's in southern and western states the more they make sense for a lot of kids. If JUCO fits your present situation and his baseball embrace it. His level of baseball talent will be satisfied and your financial situation is not burdened more. Win, win situation to me.

Every player/family is unique and I believe that their is a comfortable fit for all circumstances. We just have to understand our own situations, whether self inflicted or not, and make the decisions that make the most sense for the player and the family.

Good luck.
Yes he is 18 and would have to be on 18U Team. But then you can't just show up there without a team can you? Anyone need an OF? Hey PG maybe you have some contacts that could use an OF? Or maybe a PG team? Pass his profile on to anyone interested PLEASE and thank you.http://recruit-match.ncsasports.org/fasttrack/profile/profile.jsp?clientID=159946
