Top Recruit Hosts First National High School Baseball Player Showcase
Published on Fri, Nov 15, 2013 (4:36 p.m.)LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Unsigned Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors in high school looking for an opportunity to get in front of numerous college coaches for the upcoming spring baseball and recruiting season will now have the chance with the first, national showcase held by Top Recruit™.
This showcase, held November 15th (7p.m. - 10p.m.), 16th (5p.m. - TBD) and 17th (9a.m. - TBD), 2013 at the College of Southern Nevada Morse field will feature players participating in a pro-style workout on the opening night, with skills measurement and a testing process that are all part of obtaining a Top Recruit player profile. Top Recruit's one of a kind testing process will feature top of the line wireless testing equipment provided by a partnership with Sport Testing out of Ontario, Canada. The testing equipment provides real times with the highest level of accuracy and measures all speed related skills as well as reaction-based skills. These results will be used to build individual player profiles. The showcase will culminate with games for players to compete in front of the visiting coaches and staff.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for student athletes looking to go further than high school in their baseball career,” Top Recruit™ Founder, Ian Jones said. “Unfortunately, the opportunities aren't always there for some of these players. And that's what we're here for. To provide these student athletes with an opportunity they might not have otherwise.”
Committed to attend the showcase are 11 schools ranging from Division 1 to Junior College programs: Barstow Community College, Cal State-Northridge, Cerro Coso Community College, Citrus College, Ventura Community College, College of Southern Nevada, Brigham Young University, Dixie State College, Point Loma - Nazarene University, San Diego City Community College and Mt. San Antonio College.
“We truly feel this will be a great opportunity for these young athletes and we're pleased to be able to offer it to Southern Nevada and surrounding areas,” Jones said.
