i don't try to bash D3 or others that have JV teams but I remind parents that with those programs you have to ask a lot of questions about numbers and where they see their kid. just my experience. A lot of D3 schools have part of the coach's salary connected to how many players he gets on campus so there is a large incentive to bring guys on even if you never plan to use them. Recruiting is a two way street and it is tough to know whether to trust coaches. I remind people all the time that recruiting is about the coaches trusting the players and the players/families trusting the coach. Both can get burnt and both can be very upright. Hard to know what you are getting. That is why it is important to do your just background checking.
