The college recruiting trail ended for Matt in the best possible way; with a verbal scholarship commitment in July of his Senior summer followed by a signed National Letter of Intent during the Early Signing Period to attend and play for Franklin Pierce University in 2016. Franklin Pierce is currently the top Division II baseball program in the nation based on record, and offers the best baseball training and playing facilities in New England along with the highest percentage of players placed in the pros after Boston College and the University of Connecticut.
Matt will be joining the New England Ravens this Summer as part of an 18U AAU extension program coached by the Franklin Pierce baseball staff which is populated with incoming Freshman rookies. Matt will have a head start on making a home in his college facilities, learning the Raven Way and then joining the roster for 2016 as a Freshman LHP. Hard work rewarded.
I have learned much about the recruiting process through this experience and have developed both tools and strategies that build on resources offered by the National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) and the NCAA Eligibility Center. Follow along for tips and information that may be helpful in navigating the course to playing at the right school.
