Completely disagree. Repeat 10th if that’s the route u are going. Then u get 10th to prep for the summer before 11th when all of the recruiting is done.

False

What is false. Isn't the main recruiting summer between 10th and 11th. What's false about the statement.

How does the PG year work with recruiting? Does the college drive that with a recruit? Seems the process should be done by the time you get around to that actual school year.

Wouldn’t kid repeat 9th? It Gives the kid extra year before recruiting year?

I think redoing 8th-10th makes sense for recruiting. Not sure why you would repeat 11th vs a PG year and what is even the point of a PG year as recruiting should be well done by then.

PG year is typically done to get grades up. An ivy for example might verbal a kid with conditions related to grades and coursework that sometimes will require a Pg year to achieve. Also kids who de-commit or get de-commited in their senior year might need that PG year to get more looks from other schools.

Sometimes…

Pg is also done for a variety of other reasons. A school may have a stud lefty attackman in the 21’ class. If they have another lined up for the 22’ class, if they can get him to PG and become a 23’ it will benefit both parties ( the player will have two years on campus without the 2021 player and the team will have a stud lefty attackman for 6 years instead of 5.

PG isn't all about recruiting since lax is a dead end sport. Some kids need to get their head together and grow up, grades, physically, socially, etc.

Many PGs already have a commitment and have agreed to reclass for the college to accept them.

To clarify for some, if you repeat your 11th grade year and declare that going into the summer then that is your primary recruiting summer because now you’re effectively a Sophomore since you’ll be starting your Jr year “again” September 1st when college coaches can officially contact the kids.

Most kids repeat before going to prep school and enter in the 9th grade, do 9th grade in public school and then repeat 9th grade at prep school. For all considering, there is a big academic step up at these schools. First question coaches ask: Send me your transcript..

Brunswick dropped their schedule and it is loaded. I'm really hoping that this is going to be a normal season for prep kids.

The downside of Brunswick's schedule is that 20 of their players wont see the field all season - there's no easy game. Last year the starters couldn't put the game away (most of the season) so by default the subs never played, it was a long season for many!

Unfortunately, that's the reality for most. Good teams playing other good teams means tough close games and bench players sit.

That is why, unless you are 90% certain you are going to be an ACC/IVY/B10 player, you should question the notion of going to Brunswick, AOF, Salisbury, Deerfield,Taft, Lawrenceville. These schools over recruit crazily. Coach will text you a lot when applying as a 9th grader, but you are not alone and each year there will be 5-9 PGs added who are already committed to the above mentioned programs.

And most kids/parents will overrate their talent. These will be kids that are really, really good and would be top players on their public school teams. However, they might sit on the bench at the above mentioned schools for at least 3 and maybe 4 yrs.

For nearly all kids who are great (but not elite) players, choose other schools that play at a similar level of competition, but you’ll see the field. Schools like Hotchkiss, Choate, Loomis, Andover, Exeter, Berkshire, Westminster, others.

is there any benefit at all to going to AOF, Salisbury, Brunswick, Lawrenceville Taft etc...? It seems like although your child won't play much till junior maybe senior year , that kids still get recruited? why do these schools recruit so heavily if they are not intending on playing your kid? are college coaches even watching HS lacrosse anymore?
