Quickly approaching the next school year, the recruiting season is in cruise control with the back stretch coming up. Programs are still wanting to add pieces to their program and shape their roster. As a player, this can be a nerve racking time. There is no need to panic, as coaches will be out to see you play. Control the controllable things and work on your game.
PBR Maryland has been doing features throughout the summer highlighting players that have the ability to play at the college level. Today we focus on Dillon Waters, a 2016 right-handed pitcher and outfielder at Southern high school.
