QB on the 7A runner-up football team...29 ACT, 3.96 GPA...all-time leading scorer on the basketball team at Cary-Grove.  Sounds like an impressive kid.

My impression is that the great majority of recruits show up on a schools radar when the athletes themselves fill out the recruitment interest form on the website.  I suppose that schools might send a targeted mailing out to their local area, but after that I doubt the coaching staff has the resources to "go seeking" without some initial interest from the athlete.  The exceptions will be referrals from alumni and HS coaches who bring athletes to their attention and another might be a place like IWU having a natural advantage to recruit and target kids in Bloomington/Normal where Rose et al might make initial overtures.  But I guess I'd be surprised if they first contacted the kid from St Viator or St Patrick(for example) cold.

I don't think this is accurate, GoPerry.  Division III coaches spend a ton of time in the recruiting process "seeking."  I think the majority of CCIW recruits (the kids who are truly "recruited") are identified proactively by the coaching staff, and contacted cold. 

In the next 60 days or so, coaches will begin contacting current juniors for next year's recruiting process.  Those names come from a variety of sources:
 * Recruiting services
 * Kids they saw play as juniors (maybe while recruiting someone else)
 * Referrals (AAU coaches, HS coaches, alums, etc)
 * All-state, all-area lists
 * etc

Another point on iiwwuu's agenda-driven comments about 16 guards in 2014-15...

IWU's men's basketball roster includes a whole bunch of kids who decided to go to school at IWU knowing they were an extreme longshot of contributing at the varsity level -- and were told so by the head coach.  (Obviously every kid knows what guys are currently playing in the varsity rotation, who else is on the roster, etc - this information isn't top secret.)  But they decided they wanted to go to IWU (academically, socially, etc) and be part of the basketball program.  I guess Ron Rose could just cut all of these kids, instead of having them be part of the team, so he doesn't have to hear about "hoarding" players from iiwwuu.  With this being Division III, I am sure glad he doesn't.

There are players who are "recruited" and there are players who kind of recruit themselves.  I think everyone basically knows that.  It's great that D3 rosters are made up of both kinds of kids. 

At the end of the day, at every school, the best players are going to play.

IWU recruit names I have seen on Twitter...

* Nick Coleman, 6-2 PG/SG (St. Patrick H.S., Chicago)
* Mark Falotico, 6-1 PG/SG (St. Viator H.S., Chicago)
* Ben Sestak, 6-6 SF (Sacred Heart-Griffin H.S., Springfield)

Why would any PG or SG's come to IWU right now?  The roster is grossly overloaded with SG/PG's and the coaches kid will be the main focus the next 3 years.  This past year's roster had 16 Guards on it with only 3 seniors graduating.  Contrast that with NCC as an example -- they only have 10 Guards on the roster

Then why bring in more Guards? This team needs Bigs.  Talk about hoarding players.  AAU coaches have been critical of IWU in how they hoard players -- and this is an example of it.  These incoming Freshman guards have very little chance of any meaningful minutes the next 3 years.  If I'm a HS guard and his family, IWU is off scope for two more seasons.

You seem to be someone with a strong recruiting interest against IWU.

Oh well, I hope you get whatever guard you are looking for so you can save the board the drama.

Titanfan,

You're kidding right?  ???

The kid is in high school NOW. Therefore he is a RECRUIT for next year. If he made an early decision in January to attend IWU NEXT year, and tweeted that decision at the time, it only confirms his (early as far as basketball decisions usually go) decision. Just because he made his decision in January, rather than currently, does not mean he is still not counted as a "recruit," in basketball terminology, as far as next season/year is concerned.
I cannot comprehend how you think I could possibly be mistaken when the kid himself confirmed his committment.  :o
In what way am I mistaken? And what "misleading information" are you referring to?

I think the winking emoticon ;) suggests he was kidding.  I'm not an emoticon subject matter expert, but I'm pretty confident about this one.

And the "misleading information" is that Wesleyan, the Cardinals, is in Middletown, CT.

Carthage Red Men recruiting news....

I can usually dig up some recruiting news this time of year by searching the right stuff on Google and Twitter.  For Carthage, I'm not finding anything yet...will check again in a week or so. 

We seem to be right at the time when kids are making final decisions. A lot of that info (certainly not all) ends up being tweeted out, or in a newspaper mention.
