GIRLS LIVE PERIOD UPDATE

So what have I found out about the early going on during the live recruiting period? Many kids have come into the summer ready. Those have prepared the right way are off to a flying start. There is no doubt some players stock has begun to soar.

THE BETH CHAMBERS EFFECT

BC

While some coaches spend the April period worrying about winning. Beth Chambers worries about her team and players getting better. Her teams scrimmage returning college players. She encourages them to train and play outside their practice hours. They work hard as a group but are not a cult. She forces them to acknowledge their weakness and address them. It’s why her teams more than any other team gets better come July and it’s also why her kids get more offers than any other group each year. Beth Chambers understands it’s about getting kids exposure but more importantly having them prepared.

larkins Josie Larkins was clearly been the most talked about wing player in the 2018 class. Larkins now is being chased by a number of D1 schools. Larkins according to one D1 coach was simply spectacular at Spooky Nook. Where Larkins decides to go to school will have a major impact on a number of D1 players on the fence. But folks make no mistake Larkins worked her butt off all spring and she is being rewarded. When you get this text from a D1 coach at 6.30 am “Tiny we have to get JOSIE LARKINS in a … uniform” you know your rolling.

 

dobin Courtney Dobrzynski a year ago was the talk of a lot of coaches. Then got swallowed up by all the talent at SJV during the high school season. But guess what? When you play for Beth Chambers things change and I saw this coming last week at camp. She is in great shape, her ball handling is exceptional and her confidence is off the charts. Classic case of addressing weakness and skipping the political game. It’s why she now has D1 offers on the table and little does she know a little birdie told me she has more on the way. This is another example of a kid preparing for July.

 

Best quote of the live period-

SS From an A-10 COACH…”Watching that 2020 Shoreshot team is like going into a candy store, too many treats to choose from Tiny”...This is clearly a team of the future…4 D1 LOCKS ALREADY.

 

TIA MONTANGE IS BACK

TIA

Tia Montagne is in for a big surprise when college coaches can call come Wednesday. Because I had a D1 coach tell me “she is exactly what we need” Lost in the mix because of an ACL. Montagne, was once considered one of the best freshman in the shore. The injury made many coaches lose track of her… so it nice to see she will get that D1 offer we all knew was coming….but it won’t be her last folks…she is BACK!

 

HAWKS/LIGHTING WHALEN WIN PLATINUM CHAMPS AT SPOOKY

WHALEN

The St. Rose team blew out everyone they faced including a 31 point win in the championship game. Lucy Thomas according to coaches was as good as it gets. Markham as one coach put it “is the one player that St. Rose can’t lose” a lot of recruiters feel the same way folks, NOBODY GETS KIDS READY LIKE JOE WHALEN.

 

The Caverly Hawks Lighting Hawks

ROSE

 

They went 5-1 while losing in overtime by one in the championship game. But a bigger story is that college coaches where following this group like sick little puppies. Why you ask? Because right now Rose Caverly is one of the most in demand point guards not in the Shore but the state. Caverly will have a number of schools to choose from including some of the best academic schools on the east coast. By the way who did I see at 8m shooting the same day as she departed for Spooky Nook…you got it Rose Caverly. A little advice to Miss Caverly, enjoy the recruiting process and don’t talk to anyone except your family and high school coach…WELL EARNED!

MACK

Shore adopted Lindsey Mack continues to show way before it’s all said and done. She could find ATLANTIC 10 teams recruiting her before her career is over . Make no mistake a number on Mid Major plus schools are tracking Mack who gets bigger and stronger every time you see her.

 

WHY

Happens every year mid major teams traveling across the country to play. They just as well be ghost.  I believe if there is a local event with hundreds of college coaches in attendance. That’s the move if you are low or mid major player. I get Kimi Evans or a Faith Masonious but everyone else? Trust me college coaches are not flying half way across the country to recruit a mid-major player, unless they are in scramble mode. They can find that player in their recruiting wheel house.

 

COLLEGE COACHES MOVING COURT TO COURT

Coaches are still watching half a game and moving to another court. It’s why I am not of fan of gym with 10 courts. I wish that at some point the girls could take a page of the boys live period and go to camps. It would take pressure off coaches and players. But sadly I know that will never happen. The Academic Elite is great for one reason ….THE COURTS ARE NOT SPREAD OUT.

 

PLAYERS ON THE D1 FENCE

I have never, I mean ever!… seen so many kids on the D1 cutline as this year. My advice to them is not to panic and ask a simple question. Did you work hard enough or did you take short cuts and play the politic game. I you worked hard, you will be fine and things will work out. If you didn’t work hard and played politics you know it.
