pricesoccer17 is on a distinguished road
I think the correct balance is important.
Not all elite players want a large school D1. Not all want to play for a big school and be a role player. Some kids love the sport so much they want to
PLAY and also be comfortable in the type of school setting they fit best with, small or large also looking at the major and of course dollars they get to stay out of debt as much as possible. I think some kids go big D1 because of status. They may not get money, may not be a good fit, and may not be a place they will grow. I know a couple girls and guys who turned down a D1 offer for a smaller school (D2 or NAIA) only to find a better fit for them financially and academically. They got more money and played. Maybe not a big school they can brag about but when their friends come out with debt in 4 years with nothing else to brag about, the others will be in a better situation. If they are lucky enough to find a great fit and get good money at a D1 then I applaud them. I just find the opposite true in many cases. Being a walk on at a big school to simply play and being stuck with debit is not a good decision. I dont care how good of a player. I personally dont care how good or bad the college team is if my kid doesnt have debt.
