@GSully1- as mentioned earlier...I wish you and your son the best of luck. And, I admire your patience and calmness. (I would be freaking out right now.)
There's a lot to consider:
+ The roster saturation due to the NCAA's pandemic reaction.
+ Just two months until NLI day.
+ Just about 9 months left until HS graduation.
Don't discount the marketplace. I have lost count on how many 2020s, 2021s and 2022s we know personally who waited too long and then had to pivot to a Plan B that was way below their expectations (including not having a landing spot at all).
The pandemic has really impacted the landscape in so many ways. There's less spots, talent is cascading downward in divisions making spots harder to get, the way coaches scout and recruit has changed, schools lost money and have less money to give. It's a perfect storm scenario and these poor kids are caught in it.
Strategies that may have worked in 2019 may be obsolete in 2021. Today, it's a bird in the hand more than ever before...
