Alejandro: Do you know if senior OL Nick Schoepf from River Ridge is getting any looks?

BCP: No, I do not

Frank: My son has a D1 offer and has verbally committed. What expenses should I anticipate paying for? Are all colleges/offers the same or is any of it the discretion of the school/coach? Also, are the scholarships all 1 year or can the coach offer 4 years upfront?

Expenses – All personal expenses. Everything outside of Tuition, Room and Board, and books. Everything else is on the student athlete. Clothes, food, plane tickets, gas money, toothbrush, etc. This is a great link for you – Click Here

All D1 and D2 full Grant and aid (athletic scholarship) are the same

All Grant and aids are 1 year contracts. Coach or school can not offer more. This is a NCAA rule.

Khalilah: Hello Mr. Preston my son made the AllStar team (Quadarius Patterson) he mentioned he hope this give him more exposure. Will it? He has gotten a few calls. I asked him does the colleges in Florida know about the Allstar he said they should be there. Will they? And will him being an AllStar help him out?

Lower division colleges are permitted to attend all star games at a specific time during the recruiting calendar. To be honest, him being an all star will not change his recruiting status that much. The work he put in during the season, is the film the schools will evaluate. The All Star game is good for college coaches in attendance to “eye him up” and see what his body looks like in person.
