D1 EARLY BIRD PROSPECT LIST…

Today I WILL list the potential D1 players 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 MULTIPLE D1 players on the court at the same time on multiple occasions. Playing well in a game with one or two D1 players IN TOTAL ON THE COURT on any given day does not make a player Division one.

The players on today’s list either have Division One offers on the table or a college coach has brought their name up in conversations. Certainly some will not play D1 for a number of reasons from academics issues to failure to develop. There are players who are new to the list and some who have dropped off. It does not mean a player is not a D1 player if they have dropped off the list. It just means I did not see them this summer or fall, due to covid or they choose to train in other locations.

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 or they play against weaker older competition, it’s a old trick that has been around for years. 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. Clearly this year’s Early Bird list is a challenge. Because I am projection kids without seeing them play real games; in some cases over 6 months. This list is usually dropped in April. But with Covid I thought I take a gamble. No question their are going to be mistakes putting out a list this early…but once again the track record don’t lie… I missed on exactly 3 kids and 2 in the shore. Ironically both from Jackson Memorial. One made last years D1 list and went on to play D2. Kristina Donza did not make my D1 list but proved me wrong and is now playing at Navy… I do not consider Paige Slaven a miss because she could clearly have chosen to go D1… ( https://nothingbutskills.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=18994&action=edit). Clearly if you don’t make the list. it doesn’t mean your not a D1 player.. but to be truthful the odds clearly are not in a kids favor once they get to the junior year.

They are 48 D1 locks on this list. A lock for example is Abby Ferguson of Holmdel . Meaning she has a D1 offer in hand. Meaning the player already  received a D1 offer or it’s clear they are going to be D1. Remember this group has a LARGE NUMBER OF D1 players not on the list. A example would be last year OLIVA MILES and others were certainly D1 players. I simply have rarely, if ever have seen then. 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... REMEMBER I ONLY SEE A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF KIDS….

*means a player has a D1 offer on the table or is a lock D1 player

** means a player has P5 talent or a P5 offer on the table
