A question for those who know more about this than me:
My friend has updated his son’s PG profile. Kid is the same grade as mine – 2022.
For “schools interested in” (or whatever it’s called) he’s listed (probably) EVERY school that has baseball within a 300 mile radius of his home. ALL OF THEM – D1’s, D2’s, D3’s, and JUCOs. He’s factored nothing into it. He just grabbed and listed every school. He’s got Ivy league schools on there that his kid will never be able to attend. For all I know, he may even have some all black colleges on there and his kid is caucasian. (Maybe? Kind of joking on that last point. But, it wouldn’t shock me if it was true.) Basically, he’s fishing with the biggest net possible.
The question: Is this a good strategy? Or, do schools look at that and say “If he’s listed all these D3’s, he’s kind of saying that he doesn’t think he’s D1 talent – even though he has a bunch of D1 schools listed too”? Is it better to have a narrower and more defined/focused list of “wish” schools on your PG profile? Or, does none of it matter anyway?
