OK, I know the best answer is just to ask the coach, but we don't want to do that right away.
My son is a 2021 soccer player. He has D3 schools very interested in him. His club coaches tell me he projects as a D2/lower D1 player right now.
An ivy program emailed him with the typical camp invite (and he's gotten tons of those, I know what they look like). This one is a little different. It is still clearly a form email; however it also says:
We have started a recruiting profile for you - whenever you need to update any of your information, such as test scores, contact details, or teams you play for, please do so through our recruiting questionnaire. When you submit the questionnaire, it will automatically merge with your existing profile.
As you know, due to NCAA rules, we are not permitted to communicate with you until September 1st of your junior year of high school. However, please keep us up to date with your upcoming game schedules. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at XXX_XXX_XXXX - we are permitted to talk with you before your junior year as long as you are calling us.
What does the board say? Is this something a little more than the usual camp invite mailed out to thousands? Or not? I know that after June 15 this year D1 coaches can reach out, but I'm impatient :-)
