  • ^ schoolhouse, basketball in the Big10 is a whole different animal than basketball in the Ivies. Yale plays in front of 2000 fans on a really good night (compared to 13,000+ at Ohio State) and has 2 televised games all season. The basketball coach i…
  • ^ I agree with you, dragonfly. Sometimes it's not the student at all, but an overzealous reporter. During the summer between my daughter's junior and senior year a newspaper reporter interviewed her and asked where she would be attending college. Sh…
  • ^ 10/1 (of senior year) is the earliest a LL can be issued, This is from the Common Ivy League Agreement. " Within each institution’s overall admissions process, from October 1 through March 15 an admissions office may issue probabilistic communic…
  • It basically means that the recruit received an offer from the coach based on available academic and athletic stats and accepted it. But what is the 'offer'? Obviously it's not monetary, neither is it a guarantee of admission. Basically it's …
  • You can verbally commit whenever and to whomever you'd like - it doesn't mean it's reciprocal. Early verbals usually work out as long as his grades don't tank - but nothing is firm until admissions says so.

  • In some sports, LAX and soccer come to mind, the recruiting timeline has become so accelerated that if a college coach waits until the fall of senior year, most of the top recruits are already locked up. It has become a self-perpetuating cycle and a…
  • ^If it's an Ivy, the early verbal is even less solid than the sketchy scenario I described above. Parents and club coaches like to talk about their early commits, but just remember, there is nothing binding about them. Sure, a reputable college co…
  • Does a verbal commitment mean that if all goes well, the college will admit that player? Pretty much. If the player continues to excel and develop as an athlete, and if his academics and test scores are in range after Junior year, and if the …
  • Columbia fields a women's team and has a link to recruiting info on their site. I don't know if archery recruits are given any sort of admissions bump
  • D1 track s a big time commitment. NCAA rules allow a coach to work you 20 hours per week during season (which is indoor and outdoor), max 4 hours per day. Training room time, fundraising, travel to and from the facility, etc, is not counted in that …
