So an observation from lacrosse. Lacrosse changed their recruiting rules about 3 years before hockey. The recruiting of the 2021s in lax is notably been very slow this year. Coaches do not feel the urgency. Unfortunately while I think this is a good thing, (later recruiting), the new reality is that I have heard of 3 cases(2 men, 1 women) going on official recruiting trips where the parents pay for everything, and six months later the team is still waffling. That is where I can see an improvement....limit how long a team has after an official trip to either make an offer, or cut them lose. Unnecessarily dragging it out , after asking them to come visit, seems like the pendulum has swung the other way. I predict similar in a couple years for hockey....after the current 9th graders have been decommitted when they donít develop.
