Junior College Perspective
The junior college perspective can include the perspective of a four year coach who is recruiting players as well as that of a AAU or high school coach who is trying to get players exposure for other schools. Junior colleges are a big part of the collegiate athletic business. There is a lot of scholarship money in junior college athletics and there are some very high level players and teams at this level as well. In many cases, junior colleges have a bad reputation. In some cases this is well-deserved, but not in every case.
Coach Ryan Davis of Sheridan College in Wyoming is the head coach of the women’s program at this D1 NJCAA program. He has experience in men’s and women’s basketball at D1, D2, and the junior college levels. He shares his thoughts on recruiting, both in bringing athletes into his program as well as helping his athletes move on to the next program.
