Sometimes the recruiting path taken doesn't get you the exposure to the schools you really want to attend. Even if you are the caliber player appropriate for a school, you could be 3-6 months off with your timing of being seen by "that particular school's coaches". We have one of our kids go PG at a New England prep school to get his board scores up, a year later he was playing at William & Mary, several years later he was drafted.
If you have a late bloomer this could also be the case: having the academics but need a year to be seen, and to further refine his skills. I'd be inclined to go to IMG Academy and play my butt off. They take their PG (postgrad) seriously, they play a lot of the JUCO's in the SEast. And they have scholarships available. The HC at IMG for this program is a former AC at West Point.
