Club rankings? Really? Who cares except flat B hammerhead bag daddy-ball line-x truck coach. Clubs exist to make money and sell the dream of D1 glory. They don’t give a rat’s butt about your kid. Only a handful of kids are going to play in college and only a portion of them will ever see meaningful time. The 9th grade holdback phenom is tomorrow’s bench warmer.
I agree this should be moved to a club discussion and not in the HS thread. However, as much as parents want to bash the clubs, the top programs place 12-18 kids a year into college programs. Of the HS teams most of the kids recruited also play for the top clubs. It is very rare that a college player did not play for a top club. Check the commit list of the top clubs, they are not just selling the dream, they appear to be delivering it as well.
