But the 89 guy with good character will trump the 90 guy with bad character. i think many coaches are tired of babysitting stupidity in college. I know of three local guys who were dismissed from teams this year for bad choices. too many good players out there to have to deal with some of this stuff. When they use the word recruit it tells me they are good enough to be considered so then the intangibles.
I wonder what they truly mean by negative parental involvement. I know the stories but is that all? I know some coaches have told me one of the most frustrating aspects of recruiting is having to not only sell the player but the parents. Some see it as negative when parents start asking the tough questions but I think that is our job.
