Recruiting slowing down--momentarily

The spring college evaluation period for high school football players ended with last week, and now things should calm down for awhile as far as offers and commitments.

Don’t think that colleges didn’t take advantage of their visiting time, though; they swarmed over prep campuses across the country.

“We had over 40 Division I-A and I-AA colleges visit our school,” said Independence defensive backs coach Josh Kranish.

The break, though, is momentary.

Colleges will now host summer camps—mostly in June—and many of their top recruiting targets have been invited. After weighing and measuring them and watching them work out, the coaches will sort through all the numbers and tape and weed many off the list.

Those that remain will likely be offered scholarships. –Stan Olson
