He is coaching this upcoming season at the parochial, but already has agreed to coach at Rossford next year. Thus he is wanting said 8th grader to go to Rossford.
Sounds like that coach needs a burner phone.
My experience with high school recruiting is that 50% of it is done by the players/parents of a program encouraging their friends/AAU teammates to change schools. The other 49% is done by a parent peddling their kid and hinting at interest in making a change. Of that 49%,100% then turn around and brag that they are being recruited. 1% of the time the coach initiates it out of the blue.
Margin of error +/- 3%.
