The other HUGE misconception about being recruited D-III is the thought that every recruit will ever get to play. If you look at rosters many of them add 10 or more basketball players every year and 50 or more football players every year. Once a kid starts school they often stay at least for a few semesters or until they are done. The athletic programs at D-III programs are there to recruit students and they find athletes among them. Cost them some equipment and a practice jersey to bring in a kid. Some recruits didn't even start for their mediocre high school team (they don't last long but they tell everyone back home how they got recruited). They also get better athletes than people expect but generally what you see are students of the game and hard working athletes that will provide the ingredients for a good teams.
There's a bit of a misconception regarding D3 school athletic programs. Especially hoops and football I'd say. People are under the idea that somehow if their kid was a HS starter,,maybe got honorable mention all state their senior year etc,,that they'd easily go D3 and play. Wrong,,you'd be shocked at the level of athletes that are at D3 schools, especially those 2 sports. I played D3 football for 4 years. The number of guys who lasted 1 year or 2 years and then quit because they couldn't cut it or weren't good enough was enormous.
Very true big fish become small real quick some deal well however many don’t... important that they chose a level that allows them to succeed and enjoy the experience or it could affect the academic side as well. This is but a small part of a person’s life in the larger scheme of things...
Chargers! Would be a good fit for him. They'll bulk him up.
just the beginning. It's not where you start in college but where you end up or like previous posters have said most kids either drop or quit. Not this kid. He's always been in the shadows but thats where a kid can come out and shine. He'll give it his all. Glad to see him branch off and do his own thing. Could of went where he knows a lot of kids but decided to go do what's best for him.
