Hello, I have a few questions regarding college soccer recruiting at the division 1 level. 1- Can colleges GUARANTEE a spot on the team without offering a scholarship? My son is currently a junior in high school and loves the game of soccer with a great passion and has dreamed, since he was young, of playing division one soccer. He played academy soccer last year and will most likely play again next year. He works very hard on the pitch and plays with great heart but does not have “the Ronaldo skill.” He really wants to continue playing soccer in college but does not want the settle for anything less than division one, even though that is unlikely. Also he makes good grades. He has said that he would not mind riding the bench, at a D1 school, because he could continue to get better from the good practices and by watching top notch players. From reading this does it look like there is hope for my son to getting onto a D1 team?
