My son is interested in several D3 schools in the same conference. They are similar in size and academic level. He was asked to visit one of the schools on an overnight and they asked for pre-read documents. We think that this school is very promising, and it is his desired school. He will say yes if they offer.
So here is the scenario and two questions at the end. There are 4 schools that he has eyes on in the conference. All four coaches were at a showcase a few weeks ago. He has spoken to all 4 coaches. He followed up with all 4 coaches after the showcase. Coach ‘A’ e-mailed him back and said that they had filled his desired position. Two days later Coach ‘B’ e-mailed and invited for the overnight. Coach ‘C’ and ‘D’ have been radio silent even though one seemed very interested during face to face conversation at showcase.
So my questions are:
- Do coaches within the same conference share recruit names and current player status if they have already fill that specific position on their teams roster. I know these guys have to all be friends at some level and may scratch each other’s back. Or in other words do all four coaches know that Coach ‘B’ is interested.
- The overnight at ‘B’ is 2 weeks away. In the mean time do we continue to pursue the other coaches ‘C’ and ‘D’. I ask because I don’t want my son to jeopardize the overnight with ‘B’, but the clock continues to tick away.
