No time off for the college coaches even in this unfamiliar time. A long time ago a baseball scout told my son, just play, we’ll find you. Well it’s very true, now college programs know where the players are and can secure them even without playing for 6 months. Here are the new interest, offers and commitments from D1 schools. All of these players have been featured in my previous reports if you would like to see a scouting report on their game.
