I'm not sure if there is much interest or knowledge out there on this topic. As a former (female) D1 diver, I was not recruited but contacted a few coaches (after advice from my HS swim coach-not dive coaches...times have changed), and perhaps it was helpful in gaining admission to 2 o the schools where I was accepted. I prefer to think of myself as a non-recruited athlete rather than a walk-on. My son is in a similar situation. I was wondering if it would be helpful for him to contact coaches at schools of interest. His grades are good, waiting on SAT score. He has some talent and has been diving for year but not super-competitively. With hard work, I think he would improve quite a bit. Some schools only have 1 or 2 male divers and he might just be a nice addition to a team. Any advice would be much appreciated.
