Colleges with Multiple Local 2010 Commits


Recommended Posts

Wabash Valley got some strong KY recruits. I think Transy also got some nice KY players.

Thomas More, Pikeville, and Union all have a bunch of local recruits.

Nice post Wildcatfan.

 

I do not see Mikey Gabbard on that list though and word is he was leaning heavily toward Asbury.

 

Any updates on that?

 

Latest I heard is that he will try to walk on at NKU or EKU. I heard that Asbury couldn't provide enough scholarship money. I hope he lands somewhere.

The recruitment from Asbury came too late in the year. Asbury was already out of scholarship money. I hate it for Mikey because he should have received a scholarship somewhere. Boone County's coach should have helped him get a scholarship. He's too good a player to be walking on somewhere.

Why is that McQuery's job? Looks like McFarland in 2009 got a scholarship, and Popp this year. I think Gabbard is a good player, but there are many 6-2 guards. If he wants to play somewhere he can, but he will have to contribute money towards his education.

McFarland and Popp's fathers did the work with college coaches. I believe McFarland and Popp may have gotten much or all of their college interest through AAU ball, and the parents followed up on it. Popp's recruitment had very little to do with his school team.

With the growth of AAU ball and the emphasis that colleges have placed on being able to look at multiple prospects at a single venue or tournament I don't know how realistic it is to expect the high school coach to have a major impact on recruiting. Some high school coaches are very good at helping their players with the recruiting process and some aren't. High school coaches as a rule have serious demands on their time. They are responsible for everything that goes on in their program from freshmen on up. They need to be aware of what is going on in their middle school programs and most either still teach classes or are in administration. Not to mention any family needs or obligations. While most might not admit it the needs of the few kids in their program who have the desire and skills to play at the next level are often not as high on the priority/to do list that they have on a daily basis. Not a referendum on whether McQuery should have done more for Gabbard but more of a general statement as to how the process works today.

Apparently, that is the situation at Boone Co. I made some phone calls; I found this pretty amazing, there has only been one athletic scholarship come out of Boone County's basketball program in the last 5 years and that was McFarland.

Actually the last 6 years. David McFarland was a walk-on with an academic scholarship. I don't know if Rasso received an athletic one or not. Boone has had too many good teams and players not to have had more players receive athletic scholarships. How many athletic scholarships have come out of other NKY schools like Covington Catholic, Holmes, Ryle, Newport Catholic, Bishop Brossart, Highlands, Dixie, Simon Kenton, Walton Verona, etc. in the last 6 years?

Question, if TMC is D3 what do we mean when we say these kids are committed to play for TMC. They cannot get athletic scholarships correct? Because I know there are other kids at TMC who are incoming freshman who have been working with TMC at open gyms for a month or so that have been invited by the coaches or have made visits there but they are not saying or announcing they are committed to play at TMC. And I believe they are enrolled at the school also. With what I have heard that would bring the total to the list above for TMC to 13 or possibly more. with the talent they have already from last year seems like alot of players.

I think the Coach should do whatever he can to connect the kids with colleges where they may have a chance to play.

 

There is no way that Mikey Gabbard shouldn't have multiple opportunuties to play if he had been promoted by his coach!

Some players are actively recruited and scouted over a period of time, even by D3 schools. D3 players cannot receive athletic scholarships but can be offered varying amounts of institutional grants and academic money. D3 coaches scout/recruit certain players at AAU tournaments and visit high school games to show interest to players they are already interested in.

 

I believe committed means they have been asked to play by the coach , have been offered a financial aid/academic scholarship package, have told the coaches that they are going to play, they enroll/register, and sign to accept any offered grants/aid, etc. and play. In short, they are committed to playing there.

 

I don't believe there is an binding letter of intent signed at the D3 level like at D2 and D1. The signing ceremony/action is optional for ceremony/publicity and is not an NCAA reuirement for D3 schools since they don't/cannot offer academic scholarships.
