Several of the coaches we’ve talked to in the last year have discussed recruiting northern players. Our guests in episodes, 20, 44, and 45, Kevin McMullan and Brian O’Connor have done quite well for the University of Virginia by bringing in not only northern pitchers, but many northern position players. In this episode of Top Coach Update, we visit again with Louisville coach Dan McDonnell (Top Coach, episode 26) who was himself one of the northern athletes who was recruited to go south, where he blossomed into an outstanding baseball player at The Citadel. Coach McDonnell explains why it is so appealing for some coaches to head north when trying to find some hidden jewels.
