If they seriously want your son they will ask for his transcript and/or SAT/ACT( if he took them), for a pre-read. They have admissions look at it to see if he can make it into the school. If it's close and he needs help, the coach will ask them to push it through. If they haven't asked for his transcript there may be other boys ahead of him. Don't be afraid to ask and be direct, otherwise they will string your son along, which happens more often than not if he's not one of the top players. good luck. The process isn't the greatest.
