Just started recruiting in Tark yesterday and was sending out some calls to coaches trying to find out the Offenses and Defenses of some players as I was thinking about redshirting a Freshman with high potentials. Came across something that I don't believe I've ever seen in all my seasons of playing HD.
Now before I get into this, please remember that I'm at A+ prestige Duke, okay? Anyway, as I said, I'm calling coaches trying to find out different players O's and D's when I get these three responses (I'm not naming the player for obvious reasons):
(1) I know my players pretty well and if I were you I wouldn't plan on XXXX wearing your colors next season.
(2) I've talked to alot of coaches about XXXX and I don't think Duke is in their league. I'd move on if I were you.
(3) I'm just trying to be courteous so don't take this the wrong way--He doesn't even know who you are. May want to move on.
Again, I'm at A+ prestige Duke and this is a TWO STAR player, mind you. Right now I've got two five stars considering me, along with another four star. My returning players consist of four five stars, two four stars, a three star, and a two star. And I'm not in this kid's league? He's never heard of my school? Seriously?
I'm hoping that this is just some sort of glitch with this particular player. I've sent a ticket to CS asking them to look into the matter, because goodness, that is just flat out ludicrous and/or ridiculous. Has anyone else at high D1, with a high prestige, ran into anything like this? I'm VERY interested to see what CS' response is, because if an A+ prestige D1 school can get these three messages from a two star player, I would think that something in the recruit generation is very, very wrong.
