My son went D2 (Freshman) - JUCO (Soph) - D2 (Jr & Sr.). Original D2 wasn't the best fit (yes we felt like it was at time he went both academically and athletically) and he decided to go JUCO for a year and then go back to a 4 year. JUCO season cut short by COVID. He stayed active in reaching out to coaches during fall while at the JUCO and committed in December prior to COVID spring season. Was very fortunate to end up at a school he really likes. There are probably more kids like that than you would realize that go 4-2-4 transfers at all levels.
