Unless you’ve got the rare kid who lands at his dream school or gets an incredibly accurate early assessment, I imagine most recruiting journeys end with the player/family settling for something less than what was hoped for when the process started. Could be level of play, location, money, etc.
For those who have been through that experience, how did your family decide the time had come to settle? What factors did you consider?
Alternatively, for those that refused to settle, how did that work out?
