Committed to U Albany

I’ve seen a number of people put down our players transferring out to a D2 school or perhaps a perceived lower level D1 program. And yet, here we are offering and getting a commitment to a D3 player. He may be great and I hope he is. There’s been D3 players do well in the NFL. They can either play or they can’t. Maybe they were under recruited, maybe they were late bloomers. Maybe those leaving for another school wanted an opportunity to play more or perhaps the offered majors better fit a need. I’m less worried about the players than the head coach.

Agree - a great point!   Jerry Rice, FCS level player thus the Jerry Rice award going to a top FCS player each year.  Jared Verse was ONLY offered by two schools out of HS (as he said), U Albany was one of them.   Schools give scholarships to Walk on Players every year - little interest out of HS or because they are late bloomers or they just do not get interest out of HS for whatever reason.   JUCO players every year transfer to all different D1 Schools all the way up to Power 5 schools.
