We don’t agree but BruinVol has been consistent on his line. I think anyone who is saying they were lied to hears what they want and does not understand P5 recruiting. I told mine if you want to play SEC ball you have to compete for a jersey before you get to compete against the other teams. If you can’t win a spot, you need to move on. I think the coaches are really honest but you have to hear what they say not what you want to hear. I disagree with BruinVol that you have to recruit big numbers and know not everyone will stay. Some great HS players will not be able to compete in SEC. they find the level in which they can compete. I blame that on families not coaches. Some don’t do research. I could tell you past rosters for Coach V and Anderson and UT.
I agree that many times it’s the parents fault for not hearing what they need to hear but I can promise you many times they don’t understand the complicated nature of college recruiting so they get overwhelmed. Not all but some for sure don’t know what they need to know

I will agree. I’ve tried to do free college recruiting seminars abd can’t get people to come. Then same people say I wish I had known
Have you watched the uneven baseball documentary I posted last week?

It’s great and one of the most telling quotes in it was Sankey saying “he didn’t want his coaches talking about % to recruits”. There are so many ways coaches can spin those numbers it’s really sad and confusing

Not to interject here, but, oops, I guess I am...

The Doc, Bruin posted, if you are a fan of college baseball, especially SEC baseball, it is a must watch. I have watched it twice, really good and I don’t have skin in the game.

Yes! The Knights had a recruiting seminar with a JUCO coach, an NAIA coach, a Div III coach, a Div II coach and and Div 1 coach as the panel. Very informative, particularly for upcoming juniors and seniors in high school. All of them said grades were the biggest factor in college baseball because of numbers and that there were Juco and lower division players that had the talent, but there were other factors that placed kids where they are. It's not like football or basketball. The guys that are very talented and can't get into school can still go pro right out of high school. MLB teams will also pay for college tuition so that a kid can get his education in the off season. There's alot of factors that go into it. If it's about education and you're a marginal talent, you're paying alot of travel ball money for very little money. My sidewinder has some SEC kids and kids that got drafted out of high school that he struck out on his resume'. He's still an NAIA talent. The sooner you recognize where you are projected, the better.
