    Tyler Smarslok knows a thing or two about college recruiting. It wasn't too long ago that he himself went through the process. During that time he sent over 60 personalized emails to programs of all levels. He only heard back from one, Kean University. That's all he needed though as he is now a Volunteer Assistant Coach for NCAA Division I, Seton Hall. We spoke at length about the recruiting process and what Seton Hall looks for in their recruitment classes.

    Trinity University

    Trinity University

    It's almost every high school player's dream to play competitive baseball at the collegiate level. While most assume that means at a NCAA Division I program, it's safe to say that playing for a baseball team that consistently makes the postseason would satisfy the desire for competition. Trinity University in San Antonio does just that. Consistent postseason berths and a current preseason ranking of 4th overall in NCAA DIII makes this an attractive spot. Couple the program competitiveness with top tier academics and it's easy to see why Head Coach Tim Scannell fosters strong recruiting classes.

On Point

Great information on the recruiting process. Really enjoy the candid coach interviews and the insight on how to maximize exposure.

This is the ultimate baseball recruiting podcast

I was skeptical at first but after listening to just one episode, I knew this was the podcast I needed. The interviews and guests provide a unique and long needed look into baseball. The host asks the right type of questions, and I come away with knowledge I wouldn’t have known I needed. New listener but I have already gone through the entire library. Can’t wait for this podcast to take off and hopefully make longer episodes.
