Any advice on next steps? She has called and responded to a few upcoming prospect day invitations at schools of interest, but no response.

Do not panic. In a polite persistent way make sure the entire coaching staff at all schools she would like to go to are aware of her genuine interest in playing for them and going to the school. Review her list and look into all other schools she might be interested in. Have club directors reach out to the coaches at her top choices to see if you can find out exactly where she stands. Stay positive and help your daughter to do the same. The process has just begun . How many 23’s have committed? 50? There will likely be 700-800 DI commits…. If your daughter was invited to visit there is interest, if they are not offering they most likely have higher ranked players on their list that they are trying to get. No coach/program gets all of the players that they want. Each time they miss, the coach moves down their list.
Stay positive and be proactive without being a pest to the coaches. The process is fluid, it changes everyday and where and when other players commit can impact your daughters position. We are very early in the process.
