I know the feeling on camps is they are money makers for the school. Here’s our issue: let’s say son is considering 10 schools. His preferred recruitment would be this:
Schools watch him pitch, speak to AAU coach, have him call, meet him when he schedules an on campus tour, show him the facility. If he loves it at that point he’ll go to camp.
Schools tend to go like this: watch his video or watch him pitch, speak to AAU coach expressing interest, ask son to send along spring game schedule, invite him to a camp.
We can’t say yes to camp unless we know son has real interest in the program. That can’t be known until he sees the facilities. How do we get son to see the facilities from a recruits perspective? I guess really what I’m asking is how does son ask to see the facility without causing an issue with NCAA rules? Is he allowed to ask?
