9th Grade Grades are Very Important - ESPN Rise
ESPN RISE editors release a new lacrosse story in the weekly series Recruiting Road every Tuesday. We feature coaches' and recruiters' answers to some of the most asked recruiting questions.
As athletes commit to college earlier – many committing before the start of their junior year – the amount of information college coaches have to evaluate decreases.
Because of the shortened window, freshman year grades have taken on a larger focus. It gives college coaches an idea of where that athlete will be academically once the admissions process begins.
A poor freshman year can affect what schools will recruit an athlete so it’s important to get off to a good start to keep your options open.
