    Just because it's so dead lately (& not sleepy yet), thought I'd take up more space in this thread with a little bit of my drivel. After watching the USA under 16 game vs El Salvador,I remembered someone quoted it was somewhat of a risk recruiting younger players, (in another thread, another sport) although I thoroughly agree in general, after watching how good some of these youngsters are, if you can get the right ones, those that have great potential and it shows, the risk is greatly diminished to a large extent. Obviously, watching the 12 best players in the Country (according to the USA U 16 selection committee anyway) my view is somewhat skewed (ok a lot skewed).

    Nice fairly regional player from Colo, Betts and the Kansas native Payton Verhulst are very good multiple P5 offered players to watch, I know Payton Verhulst has been sought after and pursued by Amy Williams and the Corn Huskers for awhile, reading their fan forum. Aside from these top elite athletes (unless a local wanting to stay close to home or just lucky to nab one), establishing contact with , forming a recruiting relationship with young talented players early can sometimes lead to good dividends later. Not too bad a recruiting strategy when it works out, if you can spot the right ones, it's like capturing lightning in a bottle and keeping it until needed.

    It's a highly competative business these recruiting wars , and are very important to the success of the program moving forward,obviously. And, there are a lot of these young players around and getting to not be such a rarity, if they are good, coaches know about them, as many have excellent recruiting resources at their disposal. Sometimes a little risk is acceptable to help one succeed,if not overly done, and some players you'd be amiss assuming a player would be too great a risk, especially considering their potential to be a great player. Just some thoughts on the subject, albeit somewhat trivial for some , I find it somewhat interesting , I'm probably in the minority on this
