Yesterday, I wrote twice about athletes committing to schools too early and having to change their decision (here and here). Today I would like to compare those rushed decisions with this quote from top recruit Jheranie Boyd:
“You get tired from all the traveling, but it feels good going on these official visits,” Boyd told SN Today. “This year, all the colleges recruiting me say they need a playmaker receiver now … All of my top five have said I could play as a true freshman.”
Playing as a freshman is obviously important to Jheranie, so he is taking his time to evaluate all of the schools recruiting him. When you are in a position do the choosing, you should make sure to take your time to make a proper evaluation of all your options.
