This week, we are proud to announce pitcher Ryland Johnson as our Athlete of the Week. Congratulations, Ryland!!
When BeRecruited sat down with him for a quick chat, here’s what he had to say…
Q: Tell us about yourself. How long have you been playing baseball and when did you realize you wanted to play in college?
A: I have been playing since I signed up for T-ball around the age of 6. The more years I played, I started to realize in order to continue playing, I needed to play in college.
Q: Tell me a little bit about your current high school team.
A: We went to conference and won this fall for our district. Our record for fall was 13-3.
Q: What are you looking for in a collegiate program?
A: I am looking to hopefully play for Mizzou Tigers one day. If not there, then I will pursue another school, comparable to their Athletic Department and teams.
Q: Do you know what you want to major in? If so, what?
A: I am looking to major in Sports Medicine or Athletic Training.
Q: What 3 words would you use to describe yourself as a student-athlete?
A: Hard-working, Competitive, Team Player.
Q: Describe for us your recruiting process thus far -- what have you been doing?
A: Training and playing as much as possible -- if not for my local team during the summer, I play with other local traveling teams that need extra players.

A: I like that there is a site that coaches can connect with the players.
