      My son is in his SR year of high school and he’s just signed w/ a local junior college but we’re still contemplating as to whether he should try going to a four year university. What are D1 recruiters looking for in a typical outfielder’s 60 time?

        Great question Austin. Typically for most outfielders, anything below a 7 flat reflects a player who isn’t going to flat out clog up the base paths. But like Thurman says in the interview above, a good 60 time doesn’t always show true baseball speed.

        With that being said, if you can get your son running a consistent 6.8, he’ll have speed as another tool in his tool box which will increase his value as a prospect.

        Thanks for asking Austin! Hope this helps!
