Fall College Campus Tour:
Five Tool Recruiting will offer a college campus tour of regional Division II, Division III, NAIA, and Junior College programs. This program is outstanding for any unsigned incoming senior or junior. All players will have the opportunity to compete in either a pro-style workout or scrimmage at each respective school. After the showcase portion is complete, all players will be taken on a tour of each campus and it's facilities. In thirteen years of college placement, I have found that most players do not start to truly look at schools that are not Division I until after the fall of their senior year. At times, this puts them behind in the recruiting process. It can also make it difficult for players to take full advantage of taking college visits due to time constraints with school, sports, work, etc. My goal is to help change that. A backbone principal of this program is to help players find a school that fits them academically, economically, socially, and athletically. Since Division I programs only make up approximately 20 percent of all the college baseball programs in the United States, our goal is to target market the players in this Five Tool program to historically strong non-division one college programs that help make up the other 80%. It is not our intention to ignore Division I programs in the recruiting process. But, this program is designed to help educate and expose players to where the vast majority of all college players will be competing.
