I searched high and low, but couldn't find a good answer to this one. If it exists, please point me there.
Son has an upcoming official visit with a D2. Conversations with staff are very encouraging, and he really likes the school so far. Staff said during a call that they do not give $ to freshman players, but give it as earned.
We are not terribly concerned with the financial aspect of it, as his academics will likely cover far more than the athletic side ever would. But what does this mean for their commitment to him as a player for his freshman year and beyond?
All the research on their rosters, committed players, attrition rate, etc., leads us to believe that a good player with a work ethic and grades will go as far as they are willing to carry themselves. However, there's still a "but" that concerns us.
Anyone with experience with this? Any thoughts?
