With the early signing period having passed for NCAA letters of intent, I’d like to congratulate those of you who had the chance to sign with the school of your choice. 

I know all of you (and your parents) have put in a lot of time, money and effort to have this dream realized. 

Now, with that being said, this article is for those of you who, like me, were not able to sign with a school in November and are still looking for that right opportunity. 

I remember the feeling that I had when the early signing period of my senior year had passed and I had not received many calls or offers from schools that I had hoped to hear from.  I found it extremely frustrating to see kids I was convinced I was better than signing with Division 1 schools, while I was left wondering and waiting. 

I know it’s hard not to, but I can tell you that continuing to wonder why they got calls and you didn’t will not help your frustration.  For whatever reason, they got called and you did not. It’s happened and now nothing will be able to change that. 

But, what you can do is focus on YOU and to put YOURSELF in the best position possible after high school graduation. 

Reach out to schools to gauge their interest in you as a player.  If they won’t knock down your door, then you go knock down theirs.  Don’t be afraid of a little rejection, most schools will do it in a very respectful (and even helpful) manner. 

For those of you finding yourself in a position still looking for a place to play, I want to wish you the best of luck. 

Keep pushing and finding ways to make it happen.  Don’t let one little bump in the road derail your entire path.
