Division I: Baseball is the one with the most funding and it is the highest a player can get in college baseball. There are about three hundred DI baseball programs in the United States. There are about eleven full scholarships available per program, however, keep in mind that these may get distributed by the coach.
Division II: This division has even less scholarships than DI, but it still runs by the same requirements for players. One of the biggest differences between DI and DII is that DII is composed of medium-sized universities and colleges.
Division III: These are smaller universities and colleges and athletic scholarships are not awarded to students. However, they are still eligible for financial aid and academic scholarships.
Currently, about 4,500 men have been offered scholarships to play DI basketball. It is also important to highlight that there are about 5,000 women full-ride scholarships, since there is a high demand for female players. There are some restrictions regarding basket\ball scholarships such as men’s teams not being able to give more than 13 scholarships per program. On the other hand, women’s basketball programs have a restriction of 15 full scholarships.
How can I prepare myself for recruitment?
Generally, recruiters will rate your strength, rebound, ball handling, offense, speed, passes, defense, shots, attitude, aggressiveness, and skill. What we suggest is to start working on the ones that you feel you are weaker at.
If you are a shorter player, however, don’t get discouraged. If your athletic abilities are at a high level, you still have a chance at playing DI.
This division has the least requirements.
