I have some questions about the NCAA Clearinghouse.
D2 is a HS junior, two-sport athlete (basketball and soccer). She is not at the Div 1 level in either sport; Div 2 is a possibilty in soccer, less so in basketball. (It would depend on the specific program.)
The attributes that she thinks she wants in a college (big school, big-time football to watch) lend themselves to a Div 1 school where we know she won't be able to play. But she's not sure she wants to end her playing career, so we're keeping an open mind about finding slightly smaller schools where she might be a fit for one of the teams.
I know Div 3 schools do not use the NCAA Clearinghouse. But if she gets some interest from a Div 2 school, when will we need to register her with the Clearinghouse? How long does it take? Will coaches "engage" with her if she is not registered?
There should be no problem with academic eligibility, I'm just wondering about the timing.
