Mailbag Monday #8

Click on the link below to watch this week’s video version of Mailbag Monday. Mike from Minnesota asks: Do college coaches/recruits only tend to look in affluent areas/cities when looking for players to fill a partial scholarship situations? Lengthy video caution… lots to unpack here!

It’s a good question Mike. We have not touched on the scholarship topic much to date yet. We discuss how each program is different in how they manage scholarship and it’s not a one-size-fits-all answer. We talk about what the scholarship environment is like now compared with just a few years ago and how COVID and transfers have changed things. We also talk about the mindset parents and players should have when thinking about scholarships.

We hope this video helps!
