There are also no girls who have “outstanding offers” and have not decided. From hear on out, we will see girls commit to lower programs. A rare girl may still commit to a top 15, but not many
I think folks may be confusing outstanding offers with contingent ones. There are some girls who have told girls we will offer you if you can get xx GPA this semester or YY on the SAT/ACT. These are usually borderline admits which the coach can't get admissions behind to offer. Big difference between this and having girls just collecting offers waiting to decide. We have multiple girls who are in this situation (one with Ivy, another with a quasi-Ivy).
Now if these contingent girls don't quality that opens up spots for others in the spring
What exactly is a “quasi-Ivy”?
Also, are the student athletes who have to improve their grades/scores top recruits for the schools or are they recruits that the coach is using to bump the Academic Index up? There is a difference (at least at the Ivy’s) and at other schools is the coach not willing to use a slot? Is the coach waiting to see it the kid can get in on her own? Again, there is a difference.
In the examples I gave, these are kids who were not at the top of the recruiting class, but still solid enough players that the coach is willing to hold some $$ to see if they improve to meet with academic index/ athletic admissions requirements.
