2021 D1 EARLY BIRD LIST

Today, you get the EARLY BIRD D1 LIST. This is a list of potential D1 players, key word potential that coaches are hoping to sign one day. This list is by no means a list of all the best players or all the D1 players. This list is made up from players in the Shore Conference, NBS, or players I have seen play multiple times. I never make a projection on a player unless I have seen them with my own eyes AGAINST D1 talent.

These players either have Division One offers on the table or a college coach has brought there name up in conversations. Certainly many of these players will not play D1 for a number of reasons, from academics issues to failure to develop. The freshman are a hard call unless I see them regularly. Many times good freshman hide from competition in order to protect the hype they have received along the way. Often D1 coaches give what I call a SOFT OFFER. They know the player will not accept the offer. So, they get to see if the player develops over the years or not. If they do, they get to say they offered early. If they don’t, the college simply tells the player they took somebody else. These days the soft offer is a thing of the past due to COVID… Coaches know kids will accept that offer in many cases now. A number of schools have already been burned by the soft offer this winter.

There is a record high 72 Division One locks between the 4 classes locks this year. A DIVISION ONE lock for example is Georgia Heine. Meaning she has a D1 offer in hand. Meaning that player already  has received a D1 offer or I deem is a D1 certainty. Remember this group has a LARGE NUMBER OF D1 players not on the list. Last year for example, Anna Morris, Olivia Childs and others were certainly D1 players. I simply have rarely or never have seen them so they were not included. This is by NO MEANS the Bible of D1 players….this is a EARLY BIRD D1 list of kids I have seen…no more ..no less!!

This year is clearly a challenge due to COVID and more importantly the Transfer Portal. So, my track record may take a hit. As players who most certainly would be Division one players in the past may not have that dream come true. Due to all of the transfers and lack of scholarships available. Then, you have the problem of coaches not seeing kids live or meeting them and their families… recruiting has certainly become a risky business.

HERE IS THE EARLY BIRD 2021 LIST…
