Wondering what you folks see around your area in the country.
It seems like in the state I am in that there is a curious sizable percentage of big capability players selecting to play at a college nearest to their hometown.
Like compared to boys sports for instance. In my day, almost all the guys that I hung with had dreams of getting with the biggest and most publicized D1 teams regardless where the school might be.
Is there a gender difference in play here? or is this just some characteristic of the region I am in?
I ask this as I am trying to look into the future and make sure I am ready for that hopeful decision day and I want to support my DD in whatever choice she makes. I want to make sure I am understanding if she rejects a potentially "better" school that is farther away for one that is closer to home.
