Hi - I'm new to CC but I'm hoping I can get some advice. My son is a sophomore in an IB school. His goal is to play college soccer for a top division 1 program . His is a good soccer player but an average student. Here are his stats
Unweighted gpa - 3.5
Weighted gpa 3.9
No SAT or ACT yet
Since he is only a sophomore, he cannot officially get recruited but he does get a lot of return emails from coaches he's emailed. Of course they are always inviting him to camp and all that... Which I gather is pretty normal for any kid. In one of his tournaments when he was a rising sophomore, 4 coaches came to watch him play - 1 ivy, 2 div 1s and 1 div 3. They are all in the top 30 schools in US.
He has received a lot of accolades including getting MVP at a UC camp, all stars at one of his top D1 schools (the one who came to see him play). He's also on the state ODP team and won league champions the last two years. His team also won CIF championship with him as a freshman player. He played at the professional academy level in England.
Can you give me some advice on how to better his chances of getting recruited. Is his GPA going to hold him back? Any advice is greatly appreciated as we've never gone through this process before. Does it mean anything that the coaches came to see him play? Thanks!
