im at a div 2 (A) school
so recruiting just started and i targeted one player that i really wanted, and did what i normally do to get him to consider in the first cycle

then after that cycle, i see he is considering a div 3 (C) school

How on earth would a DIV 3 team with a (C) level get a Drop down for Div 2 so early? it is human coached school but it makes no sense. is something broken??

iv since put more into the kid and he continues to just like that div 3 school

Maybe the school has six open scholarships and he's spending all his money on this one kid? Though it is pretty crazy a C prestige DIII school could be beating an A prestige DII school in a recruiting battle.

even if he was, i could easily outspend him 10-1 based on how much money he likely has.
3/27/2013 11:04 AM
he is also in the top 20 players on the div 2 recruit list based on my results
3/27/2013 11:06 AM
How close to the school is the recruit?
3/27/2013 11:07 AM
It's probably a brand new coach that doesn't know he shouldn't be going after players at that level.

I don't necessarily think that's the issue, Weena, what's interesting is how a C prestige DIII school somehow managed to pull down a kid this talented.  You'd expect this kid to be rejecting the DIII school's phone calls, not actively considering the school as a serious option.

There are only a handful of D3 C prestige, human coached teams in Knight that have recruits considering them right now.  Of those, the highest rated player I saw was a 454 rated SF with 99 DUR.

I'm guessing it's actually a D2 C prestige school and just an oversight on the OP's behalf.

nope its not... 

Lake Erie Div 3 C level 

http://www.whatifsports.com/hd/TeamProfile/Ratings.aspx?tid=13724

the player is rated 571 and has 2 years remaining is 20th on my div 2 list.

heck i sent him a evaluation and it stated he could possibly be signed by the right div 2 school but likely to div 1
and a div 3 guy is somehow locked in on him
3/27/2013 12:55 PM
Where he signs and all American status don't mean much.

The recruit in question is a Juco and is 40 miles away for him. So it's not like that much effort was necessary for him.
3/27/2013 1:09 PM
he was top 20 on the div 2 list. and iv put alot into him and he wont even talk to me .. that is loco, if i knew i could recruit a kid at div 3 that a div 2 school with A couldnt get over me i would be recruiting alot differently

3/27/2013 1:17 PM
The key here is that he is a JUCO.  That said, it's pretty hilarious.  He shows up as a D-1 recruit for me.
3/27/2013 1:29 PM
i cant imagine that this recruit showed up in the div 3 list for a C school
3/28/2013 6:09 PM
I offered him a starting spot and guaranteed minutes and he blew me off as such: Coach, I appreciate you wanting to talk about playing time and all, but you have a lot more selling to do before I see myself at Oklahoma St. next season. David Yarnell
