With NIL now available,

Will College Baseball programs start recruiting in Puerto Rico, Domincan Republic?

You’d think there are talented players down there who would be interested in experiencing college life and obtaining a college degree.

Any such player would have to be supremely talented and that means they likely would be drafted highly. College baseball with its lack of scholarships would need to provide high NIL money to make baseball affordable.

I would say not. The prospects would have to meet NCAA eligibility requirements from an academic perspective. For athletes coming from ordinary secondary schools in those countries, that may be hard to do. Coursework has to line up to that required by NCAA regs.

If he’s talented, he can be taken by MLB at a young age. For instance Hogs played against a 17 year old international player yesterday.
