4. What is a common question that you get, or something that fans or players or coaches might not understand about recruiting rankings, the process of evaluating, or anything along those lines? “I am a parent, and I had two of my girls play sports in high school, so I get it and I was very proud of their accomplishments. That is something to be very proud of, to watch your children excel in sports. On the flip side of it, I have a lot parents ask me why their child is not ranked higher because of stats or making an all-region or all-state team, etc. It has little to do with it on our side. It is all about how you project on the next level. Some schools run the ball, some schools throw it every down. I’ve never had a college coach call me and ask me how many yards a player had in a game. I have had them ask me if I have a 40 time or height and weight for a player. It is tough, but again, that is the reality of this. It is all about projection on the next level.”
