I received an email before signings started from a player - Subject titled "I'ze got Skills" - He basically said he was in the area and would be a good fit for my system.
When I looked at him, I laughed out loud and basically said he wouldn't even make a 5th grade "Select" team.
I clicked on him recently however, and now see 4 teams in DIII are battling for him!?!?! I'm shaking my head as to why??? I delved deeper to see his potentials since I had Illinois FSS and he is Low in every category except speed (High), Reb, SB, and Passing (high).
Reason I believe a massive battle is going on for the kid, is because these coaches are new and don't know any better and went after him because the kid sent out an email to coaches saying he was interested and would be a good fit. I was a sucker for this when I first started out too a couple of years ago, and battled for a scrub because he told me he was interested and a good fit and I believed him lol (believing a sim, smh). I think they should remove those types of emails for DIII since a lot of players there are still learning, or are new and don't know any better ... in this case, a walk on would be a better fit than this guy.
