Long time stalker, first time poster!
My son's (2026) top school choice to attend and play ball is Northwestern, mostly because he wants a top notch business degree, it's local, and other personal reasons. I know they have had a lot of turmoil in the last yearand historical have not been the best baseball program, but that doesn't matter as much to him as being able to play and get that degree. My concern is that when I look at their numbers there's around 18 kids either leaving or in the portal from a team that only has 35 kids. Could this be the new coach telling kids they are looking to upgrade and suggesting leaving? Are kids disillusioned by the constant change? Trying to figure out how he can best approach this situation as he's going to camps there today and Saturday to meet the new coaches after losing the relationships he built with the old ones.
