Couldn't agree more. Process needs to be worked. Advise to the contrary is misleading at best. Every Coach and every assistant Coach on your list of schools that you want to play for needs to know who you are! Plain and simple. Most of the recruiting is done by the assistants! Thinking you're going to a tournament to be "discovered" is not a solid recruiting plan. As good as you think your son is, there are 20 other kids out there who are bigger, stronger, faster, and more talented than yours' with better grades. These Coaches have far more choices in today's recruiting environment than ever before. It is truly a buyers market for them! Look at the rosters of your son's wish list schools, kids from all over the country...

Re read and still disagree. College Coach MUST be contacted. Ask around and coaches will tell you the same, must fill out recruiting questionnaire. Must follow up with emails, they do not know who you are. Unless the coach is widely respected and has the University coach on speed dial its simply not enough.

No need to re-read, the above is how the process works for 99% of all commits. To advise people otherwise is just nonsense.

Just saw a list of commits for this age. I can't believe how many kids have committed to the arm forces academy's.i think it's great but also find it odd. Are that many kids going to Air Force or are these academies being used to have kids be poached . I know a few and the last thing I would think about them is being that type of kid. I hope tthey all stay but I have a hunch that this is all to help get other schools to notice them. I am ok with using other schools but please don't use our military academies. I find it disrespectful. I am curious what others think .air force has I think at least 14 kids .By far the most

Nope, the Academies are actively recruiting these kids. The young man must have the grades, failure to maintain grades and get recommendation result in not getting in or going to Military prep first.

well....speed dial is what the coach used actually. As far as I know, he knows most major D1 coaches on first name basis.

If the kid is good, the process WILL take care of itself.

So in the end most won't end up going.? They will use it to get into other schools . Fair to say if they leave and switch schools within the next year that they were never going anyway.

guess things aren't working out so well for you in that regard.

I was actually with the college coach who called my son's coach on speed dial

"tool"...?

Did you actually just regress to 6th grade?

how embarrassing.

I think I saw a few 18's leave other schools to commit to the academies. BTW if you can hack it is is a great education and they will be well ahead of the pack upon exit.

Academy's are taking advantage of the fact that every kid gets a full ride and guaranteed employment.... it is not easy to get through, but like the big 10 now, a 4year guarantee for a free college education is tough to turn down.
