From players looking to sign at high-profile schools to those simply looking for a place to play at the next level, the recruiting process can be daunting. The ability for a player to say yes to a school is a relief, and the upcoming season can be all about baseball.

But because the MLB draft is in June, things can change.

The following is a list of the verbal commitments we have to date. To submit where you are going to school, click here. We will update as frequently as we receive commitments.
