My son is currently a sophomore (2021 Grad). He's a power hitter with 90 Exit velo. He also pitches with fastball around 82. He is ~5'11", 200lbs.
I expect him to be around ~3.5 GPA by the end of his Junior Year (given his academic performance)
He attended a couple of showcases in his freshman year where a few of the college coaches asked him to keep performing/hitting the same way.
We have his video done and he also has a far idea on the major that he wants to pursue.
Given his profile, how should we start going about reaching out to colleges? We are based out of CA.
1. Should we start by looking for colleges solely based on his GPA, which could be selective D1's and mostly D2's?
2. I read in the forum here is to look at the Roster for location. Should this be another criteria to look at colleges to reach out to?
3. He is definitely looking into Showcases & College camps this summer and fall. Are there any events that he must attend given during that time frame for maximum exposure?
4. Should we focus on out of state colleges given his profile?
Any other areas that we should consider
