Bottom line is all these club team directors think they are the ones getting the kids into college. This is a slap in the face to the head coaches of teams like yorktown, bronxville, new cannan etc.
Botton line if you are that good you will get to the big college. These club directors pray on the people chasing the dream and then when 90% don't make it they steer them to div. 3
A lot of these kids were done before they had even hit a varsity field so HS coach had little input / influence.
This is true & completely negates the blanket statements above. There are rule changes this year- yes. But your blanket varsity coach statement is moot. A kid playing competitive club ball is getting much more frequency exposure to college coaches than just through his HS varsity coach. Tournaments with club teams are a much more cost efficient way for college coaches to see their prospects from different hometowns.
