It sounds like your off to a great start.
I would suggest that you make a list of schools that you’re interested in, and you feel you’re capable of pitching for. I would then make contact with those schools( e-mail, letter, filling out a questionairre on their website…) It’s a good idea to be proactive and get your name out there. I would do these things as a junior. That way schools have a chance to see and evaluate you before the spring or summer of your senior year. As schools start showing interest, I wouldn’t hesitate to have your coach contact the college on your behalf.
I think you’ve got the right idea as far as improving your velocity. If you can get yourself up to that 83-84 mph range, that would really help you attract more attention from colleges. I would really work on improving velocity, especially in the offseason. I would suggest you get on some sort of throwing program specifically designed for gaining velocity. i.e. weighted ball workout
Keep working and learning.
