No Selection in Spring 2011
Randy Rodgers Recruiting announces the discontinuation of its annual Pre-Season All Academic Team. For the past three seasons, qualified student athletes have been recognized for their classroom and test score achievement. More than 500 Texas high school players have been recognized through this program.
"We created the team three years ago to attract attention of Ivy League caliber programs, who awarded financial aid on the basis of something other than athletic ability", states Randy Rodgers, Owner of the Rodgers Recruiting Report. "Unfortunately the those schools showed no interest in the information, and new NCAA regulations on Scouting Services made it no longer cost-effective to provide the information to Sub-Divsision I schools"
Rodgers further states, " We have really appreciated the support of Texas HIgh School coaches and counselors. We thought we had a good idea."
