A picture is worth a thousands words here...

Good example of how much contact goes into recruiting.  And this is just mail contact -- on top of this you've got phone calls, texts, and in-person visits.

Every bit as much effort goes into recruiting at the D3 level as it does in D1.

I'm pretty sure this is a biggie and that this kid is a stud.

Bader was recruited by scholarship programs Benedictine (KS), Rockhurst, and Evangel.

Brice Robinson ‏@Brice9R
Proud to say I will carry on the tradition of Oswego High School #42s next year at Illinois Wesleyan University! 🏀



Ron Rose and the Titans have landed Brice Robinson, a 6-7 forward from Oswego H.S..  Robinson averaged 15.9 points and 7.6 rebounds as a senior and was named Beacon-News area Player of the Year.  He was offered a scholarship by NCAA D2 UW-Parkside and was recruited heavily at the small college level.

I believe this is a significant addition for the Titans.

It's a brand issue, kiko and Bob. D3 schools do not offer athletic scholarships. That's not a liability as far as the people who are affiliated with our institutions are concerned, it's a virtue. Our division offers a vision of college sports that's based upon a very different philosophy of what intercollegiate athletics (and the college experience in general) is all about than is seen in the scholarship divisions (including the NAIA). Why encourage misleading language that would cause readers to assume that the opposite is true?

D3 is underreported, little-understood, and doesn't get much respect as it is. Accepting erroneous journalism concerning the division as being no big deal really isn't helping our cause. D3 needs better publicity than what it's getting.

I guess I'm just saying that now that there is actually a form kids can sign in Division III, I honestly don't think there is any brand impact on a newspaper writing "letter of intent" vs "celebratory signing document." In reality, the average reader would never distinguish between the two -- he/she is simply learning that little Johnny has officially decided to go to [insert school]. 

Division III has plenty of brand battles to fight...I just don't really think this one is worth the time and attention.

As far as Getting Things Wrong goes, this seems pretty meaningless to me.  It isn't 100% accurate, but captures the spirit of the kids' choice ("I have chosen to matriculate and play at SUNY Northeast Tech Baptist School of Engineering") reasonably accurately.

Agree.  Whether a newspaper says "Letter of Intent" or "Celebratory Signing Document"...who cares.
