I can guarantee you no NCAA D1 school will touch a player straight from a "club/semi pro team"

Re: D2 looking for Safety/LB prospects for upcoming season 


I respect both of y'all opinions. It won't happen over nite, but it will definitely happen. I know all about being placed having coached in the mississippi juco league. What you fail to understand is, if a student gets his AA degree from a fla junior college, they are eligible to enroll at ANY fla university. That means the 9 D1 schools can def get that stud in once he has that degree (especially UCF because of the direct connection). Every program starts somewhere ELCO, Mt. San, Pierce, weren't built over nite. Placing is about relationships and "who you know". Marshall signed Tuerene this year. If a Kid is eligible academically and athletically and he's one of the best players around, he will go D1. It only takes 1, then the flood gates open. #teamFla - get to know that term

I 100% agree with you. I deal with many D1 coaches across the country, and they won't even look that way.

When you say touch you may be correct regarding giving scholarships, but it's possible to walk on and earn a scholarship once they get there. Playing for the club team just keeps them in football shape so they have chance to perform at the D1 level if they have the talent. There is a LB from Gattaca now on D1 South Carolina Gamecocks squad who walked on.
