A linebacker who can't get under 5.0 should not worry about D1 schools.

Kids should also decide how important money is versus a top tier academic school. I believe DII schools give out some scholarship money, yet it is the DIII schools that are generally the top tier academic schools (UChicago, Case, Middlebury, Carnegie Mellon).

I think preparation for camps and recruiting is as much about an honest assessment of what level a kid can play, and why they want to play. I believe one of the Moeller seniors passed on some larger schools to play at U of Chicago which is a top 5 school in the country. In my book that is better than a walk on spot at a bigger school, or partial scholly at a DII
This is generally correct. You can get a full ride to a d2, all football money if they really want you. (not all d2 programs will do that and these full rides are usually reserved for d1 transfers on non d1 academic qualifiers)

As far as the high end academic d3 schools, football can be a way to get into school or possibly avoid the 50-60k, annual cost of attendance to a cost comparable to a "state" school.

Those are great schools that you mentioned GCLfan, but it should be noted that there are plenty of other d3's, very strong academically, liberal arts institutions in Ohio. (Kenyon, Denison, Ohio Wesleyan, College of Wooster, Oberlin, Wittenburg) just to name a few

Agree 100%! Nothing wrong with playing D3 ball and getting a valuable education. Also nothing wrong with trying to prove yourself as a walk on for D1. And nothing wrong with walking away all together...

Also helps if you are aiming for D3 to be qualified for financial aid as even with academic scholarships it usually still doesnít cover the bulk of it. Know a few other players who looked at Chicago but wouldnít have been able to afford it- not would have gotten any/enough financial aid so went to less expensive schools. Itís all about aiming right- academics, environment of school, $, team- if any of the 4 donít fit the player it often doesnít work out.
