The state of Michigan is filled with high-level baseball prospects throughout each corner of the state. The 2018 class has commitments all across the United States, from Vanderbilt to Miami to Kentucky to Missouri to Nebraska and many more colleges across the U.S. When looking at the 2018 rankings, you will see plenty of Michigan colleges littered throughout all of the commitments as well.

The 2019, 2020 and 2021 classes are also loaded and primed to make some big-time commitments to colleges all across the nation over the next few years. We at PBR Michigan look to bring you insightful information on these big-time commits as well as giving everyone a look at some of the top uncommitted prospects available as well.

Uncommitted Spotlight: Rivera Just Starting Recruitment Process

Avain Rivera OF / RHP / H.H.Dow, MI / 2020

MIDLAND - A little more than six years ago, Avain Rivera moved from the southeast coast to Michigan. The H.H. Dow sophomore hopes to return to that area some day to play baseball.

“My dream college is North Carolina,” Rivera said. “It’s where I’m from and it would be a dream to go there. They play really good baseball there.”

While Rivera has never been to the UNC campus, the idea of returning to his roots remains in his mind.

“We moved here in 2011,” Rivera reflected. “We didn’t live in the best area and the schools were not the best. We moved close to my grandparents to help them out. I’ve enjoyed it here as well, the area is nice, too.”
