Had a chance to talk to Bob?(I think that was his name) at April's Finest this weekend. Super helpful and nice, we got a few things fixed that I needed help with. My Dd is only 13 but I see this site being very useful in the near future. Had her ODM done on site and they were entered immediately into her RTA profile. Great having On Deck there and the two working so well together.

13? Does it really start that early? How likely and what kind of 13-year old players do college coaches look at through a recruiting site?

There are 13 year olds who are bigger, faster and stronger than the vast majority of 18 year olds. When you see them on the field competing well with 18 year olds it kind of gets attention. Do they always turn out as hoped/hyped? Nope. Is it the norm? Nope.

There are certainly parents whose perceptual prism prevents them from accepting that a kid 4 or 5 years younger than their kid is perceived as a better prospect or worse, is currently a better player than their kid. That doesn't change reality.
