Botsoe, considered a top 300 prospect among high school baseball prospects nationally, said he's been told he could be taken in the June Amateur Draft.
So, last weekend Botsoe and his father, Eugene, made the trip to Louisville and spent some time with Cardinals' head coach Dan McDonnell.
"That was good for me," Botsoe said. "No matter what happens (with the draft), I know I picked the right place for college. (McDonnell) told me everything I need to know. I'm ready to get to Louisville is that's what will happen for me."
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Botsoe did admit it's "probably 50-50" that he will make it to college but said it all hinges on the draft.
"It's really too early to tell with the draft," he said. "Scouts have been telling us that we won't really know until the draft is going. It's possible that I get drafted high enough to go ahead and do it. But we don't know yet."
Botsoe was at Jim Patterson Stadium for the Cardinals' 6-5 comeback against Florida State. He's made a few other trips previously to campus.
"I've been there before but it was a completely different atmosphere, it was so exciting," Botsoe said. "They're playing great and the fans are great there.
"No mater what happens, I know it's the best place for me."
Botsoe extended his verbal commitment to McDonnell in January of 2013, which proceeded the commitment of his Gravel Travel Club teammate Josh Stowers, who committed in March of 2013 and has also signed with the Cardinals. Botsoe is rated as the No. 57 outfielder in the country by Perfect Game.org. He also ranks as the No. 12 prospect in Illinois and the No. 2 outfielder in Illinois for class of 2015.
The June Amateur Draft will be held June 8-10.
