I am wondering what college division is going to be best for me and if there is any chance of going to a D1 school. I throw consistently 82 and 83mph on my 2 seam. I am 6’4″ and weigh about 165 so i know i have a lot of room to bulk up. Im currently lifting with the 16 week fusion system. Im just wondering what your thoughts are on this. Thank you.

The best way to ensure that you will get into a D1 school is to have the fastball to guarantee it. If you continue to work at the program you’re gonna be fine (just read the testimonials). Also don’t forget that college is a place of higher education. You should pick a school based on what you want to learn about. As for your stats, I’ll play the role of amateur scout and say that you would probably make it into a D2 program assuming you have good control.

Velocity is always the deciding factor when it comes to playing at the next level. You should be an upper 80’s guy with your size at least. If you can work hard and smart and set your 3X Goals and also perfect the 3X Pitching Mechanics you will become a high velocity pitcher and play at a D1 level or have a very successful college career.

Yes, velocity is always the deciding factor when it comes to playing at the next level. Like McHugh said, if you continue to work at the program you’re gonna be fine. Another point which McHugh pointed out is that pick a school where they will accept you obviously, and pick a school where all your dream job opportunities are. Don’t limit yourself to just becoming a professional baseball player. I mean how many players do actually become professional? It’s good to have a confident mentality knowing that you will make it, but facts are facts, not many players do actually play in the MLB. So look for colleges that provide the education, like you want to be a sports scientist or physiotherapist or doctor or whatever you want to be in the future, if the college doesn’t have the courses for that, then you might as well choose another one with these courses. So don’t always try to pick the top of the ladder college unless they provide you with the courses and facilities you need. Sometimes these schools are conventional wisdom, or they make you train everyday or something like that. So watch out for these kinds of things.

when people ask this question, 86-87+ is my answer. I know a lot of D1/pro pitchers, I see that 87 mph is the kind of the dividing line. 82-83 is junior college, or up to D2 if you’re having a great high school career. 

6’4” throwing upper 80s+? That would give him a very good shot at becoming a professional, are you kidding? Pick the best school that offers you a spot.
