The coaches are misleading everyone, some could say flat out lying to everyone.
This change is not about recruiting in 6th grade or any other type of early recruiting.
This is about 78 days.
What is the benefit of waiting 78 days?
Until someone tells me differently I can only think it is an additional 78 days of camps.
What do the children get by having access 78 days sooner?
Seems to me that the PSA can use that 78 days to use real information to evaluate where they want to spend 4 years of their lives.
Some will even be able to start their Junior year of HS and the others will also have their process start a little sooner.
Again this is about 78 days........NOT Early recruiting. Early recruiting has been stopped.
Staying at 9/1 does allow for an entire summer tournament season, though.
