Athlete recruitment process?

As mentioned, it depends on how good you are and how good you are compared to the other recruits. Will the coaches divulge this to you? Some will say a few items about it and others won’t say anything, because it’s always changing. Maybe the #1 recruit just got a non-waiverable DQ or committed to another school. Maybe a reach recruit who didn’t show much interest has now committed. Has the coach mentioned an official recruiting trip? Bottom line... it can help none or a lot. Regardless of that, none of it matters if you aren’t 3Q.
Just an FYI while we are dealing with the recruiting questions

Subject: What does "Committed” mean?

I have sent this to our coaches and administrators in a format tailored to them and feel that it is important that you understand what “commit” means also.

Social Media has caused a lot more public discussion about students being recruited by Colleges, Universities and even the Academies.

We see now, more than ever, an announcement on line or in the local paper about a student “Committing” to the Naval Academy. You may run in to a student in a Blue and Gold interview or read about in the paper who says “I committed to Navy”.

What does that mean?

When a student athlete"commits" to our program we have asked the coaches to insure that He/She and the Parents understand what that means.

They are committing to come to the Naval Academy and play for us if they complete their admission record, are approved by the Admission Board, complete the medical examination and, for a Direct admit candidate, apply for nominations from their Congressman, Senators and the Vice President. The nomination portion is not required for someone we are sure will be headed to NAPS or Foundation.

We have had two or three recent incidents where the family is under the impression that since the student "committed" that they are done and he/she is guaranteed to be admitted. Unless the record is complete and the medical has been completed there is no way to tell if the student will be successful in the admission process. Candidates must understand that.

Also recognize that high school coaches and guidance counselors may not understand the nuances of a “commitment.” If you speak to a guidance counselor about a candidate and they say “oh – he/she is all set and was already accepted at Navy last year” (or something to that effect) they probably mean that the candidate “committed” to Navy and they do not understand the entire process. Please don’t hold that against the candidate! This is a “teaching moment” for the counselor, coach or parents also.
