Son is currently a sophomore. Played Varsity as a Freshman and had a very successful season. The HS season here starts out of the gates somewhat soon.
Son has also received some good exposure via the travel route. Recently, he was recommended to a mid-major D1 by someone in the game and connected with the recruiting coach there. After a visit at their camp in January, based on his performance at the camp, he was told by the recruiting coach that he is under consideration for his position when they start focusing on his graduation year.
The next 3 months will be focused on his HS season. But, what about after that? His travel team will be making all the PG stops, etc., and have some team camps set up. However, what should he be doing as an individual WRT exposure and recruitment?
I have a list of 30 college for his target list. It's a mix of D1, D2 and D3 schools that align with his playing abilities, academic interests, geographical preferences, campus size desires and probably of admittance. (He's not going to play in the SEC. He's not going Ivy League. He's going far from the east coast. And, he's not interested in attending a college with tens of thousands of students. This all helps narrow down the list.)
He feels that there's still time before he needs to commit for for a D2 or D3 since he's a HS sophomore. And, that seems logical based on what I see happening with older kids.
That said, for a plan, I recommend that he looks at those D1 schools on the list of 30 - and there's 20 of them on the list - and start reaching out to the recruiting coaches this spring as an introduction and an opportunity to share his videos and summer schedule. And, if some of them express an interest, then he can look into attending one of their camps in the summer or fall.
Is that something that he should be doing this spring and summer? Too soon? Is it even the right approach at all? If not, what should be his focus on the recruiting front?
(Don't worry about training, getting better, bigger, faster, etc. That's always a priority to him.)
