Andy, just wanted to say thanks, as always, for a terrific camp. Great contact with coaches, extraordinarily well-run and organized, with very timely feedback! You do a terrific job.

Andy that was a fantastic experience. Thank you for putting this on for the kids! Please keep us in mind for any future events that you do. We've been to a few camps and yours was by far the most organized and professionally run camps of all.
Erik Ekizian Parent of Brendan Ekizian 2019 OF Buhach Colony HS December 12, 2017
Rising Prospects is awesome! This prospect showcase is very unique in how it is run. I love the rotating groups. This makes the entire experience feel very productive, more time to show the players skills and not waiting around. The format is time efficient and gives players an opportunity to display all of their skills.
With so many showcases and camps, as a parent it is hard to choose which ones to attend. My hopes along with most parents is to give my son every opportunity to showcase their skills and hopefully play at the next level. Rising Prospects is that venue. The quantity and quality of college coaches are not exaggerated.
My son attended Rising Prospects twice and each time he was contacted by interested coaches. This showcase is worth the effort and time. I will continue to recommend Rising Prospects to others.
Lisa Lee Parent of Korey Lee 2016 Catcher Vista HS December 12, 2017
Rising Prospects has been a quality camp for my son to showcase his game and talent. Being evaluated by 30+ college coaches in multiple levels of D1, D2, D3 and top JC's. The 2 day event showcases BP, fielding and live games and will give you all the opportunities to show your skills and tools. From hitting, fielding, running and pitching you get more than enough time on the field to do your job and get noticed.
Watching 30+ coaches on the field with the players makes it a hands on event to get to know the coaches and players. This is a very unique platform where you know you are being evaluated and watched when you are on the field. Unlike many events where you just have too many teams and games going on you truly know the coaches are there to watch you and the group you're in during your time on the field.
The fielding part of the showcase helps you see more than just the typical 4-5 ground balls. The coaching staff at Rising Prospects puts the players through live defensive situations to showcase your range, hands and footwork skills. For my son as a middle infielder this was perfect as you might not get a ball hit your way in a live game and you can't show the extra tools with just a couple of ground balls. In addition, players receive a complimentary high quality recruiting video that is easily valued at $200+ and that other camps would charge extra for.
I truly would recommend Rising Prospects Camps to show your ability to play the game and allow the colleges to evaluate your level of play.
Jimmy Gutierrez Parent of Brandon Gutierrez 2018 SS/2B Roosevelt HS December 12, 2017
Rising Prospects camps provide great opportunities for getting players seen by both college and professional organizations. The events are well organized and smooth flowing. Constantly, the staff engages, monitors, and provides valuable feedback to each player.
Andy Rojo (Director) has an enormous amount of baseball knowledge. He is very responsive and makes himself accessible to both parents and players before, during, and after a Rising Prospect event.
My son has participated in various camps by different organizations over the last 4 years. Rising Prospects camps led by Andy Rojo are by far the best!
Reginald Coleman Parent of Junior Coleman 2017 OF Patrick Henry HS December 12, 2017
The Rising Prospects showcases were by far the best college recruiting camps we experienced over a 3 year period of travelling throughout CA and AZ. Andy Rojo is exceptionally organized, before, during and after the event. The two showcases we attended went without a hitch and all activities were right on schedule.
As parents, being able to actually see the coaches/scouts on the field, greatly reduced our anxiety of wondering who would be present to see our son perform; they all saw him field, bat and play in live game situations. Professional videos were also provided that could be loaded to a website for coaches to review or coaches that were not present to see.
Andy Rojo is extremely courteous talking to parents as a group to explain the recruiting process and is very approachable, spending time talking to parents on a one-on-one basis as time permits. After the events, Andy followed up with my son's travel coach to see if the player's and parent's expectations were met.
The Horn Family highly recommends Andy Rojo and Rising Prospects.
Steve Horn Parent of Kyle Horn 2017 OF/RHP Bellarmine College Prep December 12, 2017
My son (now a HS Jr.) has attended for two years...VERY well run camp, good speakers for the parents (especially those new to the college recruiting process) and well attended by college scouts. Andy Rojo is very accessible and responsive, whether he knows you/your son or not.
Leigh Kretzschmar Parent of Austin Kretzschmar 2018 SS Helix HS December 12, 2017
My son had an opportunity to play in the Rising Prospects Academic Showcase. One of the best investments and baseball decisions we ever made. 20+ college scouts and an excellent format. It put my son on the map! I recommend this to everyone I know. This can save you a lot of money. Get in early!
Tomas Delgado Sr. Parent of Tommy Delgado 2018 SS Bonita HS December 12, 2017
Andy hosts the best showcases around and they are always loaded with the top schools around the country providing a rich environment for exposure. Andy, also provides the players and parents with valuable information regarding the recruiting process. His baseball knowledge and experience is extensive, he is always there to answer any questions or concerns and truly cares about the players and families.
Bryce McHale Parent of Bryce McHale 2017 Catcher Valencia HS December 12, 2017
In an amateur baseball world that has become a lucrative business venture to "sell" a college baseball scholarship to parents and players, there is no one more honest, has more integrity, or more knowledge than Andy Rojo. My son has been playing travel ball and chasing a baseball scholarship since he was 10 years old and we've interacted with many coaches and programs. There was none more pleasant to work with than Andy. He went above and beyond for my son with absolutely nothing expected in return.
My family and I couldn't be more honored to speak so highly of a true man/coach of character. We've attended two Rising Prospects camps the past two years and couldn't be more satisfied with the value and results. We are beyond grateful for our relationship with Andy and look forward to keeping in touch for the years to come.
Adam Renteria Parent of AJ Renteria 2017 Catcher Long Beach Poly HS December 12, 2017
Thank you Rising Prospects for your top notch college showcases. We had a great experience, always professionally ran and organized. College scouts and speakers came from all over the United States. Videos were well done and delivered in a timely manner. The Dykstra Family highly recommends Andy Rojo and Rising Prospects
Sue Dykstra Parent of Casey Dykstra 2017 OF/RHP Corona Santiago HS December 12, 2017
Our son attended the Rising Prospects National Colleges camp last year and felt it was by far the best prospect evaluation camp we attended over the past three years. Our son received a good amount of interest from various colleges following the camp. He began receiving calls and emails from a number of D1 schools as well as a number of DII and DIII programs. The interested schools came from eight different states. There were several aspects that sets the Rising Prospects camp above others including the large number of college coaches & recruiting coordinators in attendance for the duration of the event.
The skills/fielding demonstrations and batting practice as well as the games were attended by all of the coaches who sat around the perimeter of the field on the playing surface. This was very different from other events where coaches are roaming from field to field or moving around the stands. Several of the coaches took the time to speak with our son on the field between innings! The camp was structured so that my son played the position for which he registered full time and shared only with the other player who had done the same thus allowing a large number of reps and playing time.
The final component that really set the camp apart from others was the outstanding video that was provided of his batting practice and fielding demonstrations. This video was clearly professionally shot and produced. Within days of it being posted he had hundreds of views and received even more personal contact from schools. I absolutely recommend Rising Prospects camps to any player with sincere interest to play college baseball.
Eric Lambeau from Bellevue, WA Parent of Alex Lambeau 2017 SS Newport HS December 12, 2017
Rising Prospects Showcases have been among the most professional camps we have attended. From organized registration, well managed format and chosen premier facilities, these camps draw top talent among both players and top recruiters. We have benefitted from the experiences, exposures and networking gained from this event.
