Commitment Q & A

 

PBR: Tell us all about your recruitment process, when it started, and why you decided to commit to Johnson and Wales?

DeMatteo: I started the process in the 10th grade. I knew that I had an interest in Culinary Arts and wanted to continue to play baseball in college. I emailed several coaches from schools I was interested in studying at. I tried to go to each school's camps. After visiting the schools and participating in their camps, I realized that JWU was the perfect fit for me.

PBR: Looking at your skillset on the baseball field, what would you say your biggest strength at the next-level will be?

DeMatteo: Pitching. I have put in a lot of work over the last couple of years to improve mechanics.

PBR: What's your No. 1 priority going into the Winter in terms of getting prepared for next spring?

DeMatteo: I plan on working out this winter on all phases of my development.

PBR: Who is your biggest influence when it comes to playing the game of baseball?

DeMatteo: My biggest influence is my dad.

PBR: Prep Baseball Report's No. 1 goal is to provide players with an unrivaled platform filled with next-level exposure through events and multi-media avenues. What's your experience been with us?

DeMatteo: In the emails I sent to the coaches, I included the link to my PBR profile. It gave coaches access to the video that PBR recorded and the write ups. Anyone looking to gain exposure should utilize this website.
