Here’s a rundown of the action. Master’s… READ MORE >

Just how tough is earning a D2 scholarship?

Just how tough is earning a D2 scholarship?

Posted Monday, February 24th, 2020

It’s that time of year again as winter is gradually starting to wind down and spring is approaching that a still significant percentage of the senior class remains uncommitted. Many prospects come into that final year, especially if they’re post-grads, with a certain goal in mind. That goal is often tied to level, or at least perceived level of play. “I’m D1 player” “I’m a scholarship player” Recruiting though is about supply and demand and it’s the market that tells… READ MORE >

Diarra continues to set pace in Connecticut 2020

Hassan Diarra 2020

Posted Wednesday, February 19th, 2020

Of all six New England states, Connecticut stands alone when it comes to the overall depth in the class.  Our updated rankings include 50 prospects, all of whom are clear scholarship prospects, with even more prospects at that level falling beyond the top 50.  With that many scholarship candidates in one state, ranking them is an inexact science to say the least, because when the degree of separation is so finite it really becomes a matter of perspective, especially for… READ MORE >

This year, and in recent… READ MORE >
