Today's Baseball Recruiting
College coaches are beginning their recruiting process earlier than previous years. Many baseball players are verballing their freshman and sophomore years versus their senior years due to increased levels of competition across the playing field. By the time you have reached your senior year in high school, colleges have reserved spots on the roster for the next two years.
Because of the late timing of the playing season as compared to other college sports, baseball recruiting is in a unique position because college coaches must really look ahead to fill out their roster. Unlike many other sports, high school baseball is played during the spring season. This means that by the time the student-athlete is a senior, the college coaches have most likely offered all of their available scholarships.
High-profile schools such as those in the Power 5 conferences may even have their recruiting classes set by the high school sophomore year, making the freshman year an imperative season for many top-notch recruits. Many college baseball coaches take verbal commitments from athletes as young as sophomores.
