While many 2021 prep school post-graduates and seniors have already made their college commitments to play at the next level, there are still plenty of talented players who remain in limbo in regards to their futures.
As we all know, following the cancellation of the 2020 season due to the pandemic, a lot of these individuals, who were then-juniors, missed out in their attempts of showcasing themselves to potential college coaches. Many were left to rely on summer ball, either at the AAU or Legion level, which served as a platform to assist them in those efforts without guarantee. Add the fact that the NCAA's decision of granting spring sport athletes, including baseball players, an additional season to make up for the shortened season of 2020 makes these efforts all the more difficult.
Rosters at the Division 1 level will now be allowed to carry 35 players, with the understanding that any senior deciding to return to its present school will not be counted against the school's roster limit. Thus forcing coaches to be particular in who they are recruiting in terms of numbers and playing time.
New England Baseball Journal has put together a listing of some of the better non-committed 2021 prep school players throughout New England who continue to hold out hope of grabbing the attention of college baseball coaches who may still be looking to add to their respective rosters for the 2022 season.
