I was only recuited by a few schools, but when one D1 coach found out I wasn't a starter or had a high ranking, he was really ****ed he wasted his time on me. I said, "Sir, you have no idea how good my high school team is. I bet you that my high school team would beat your college team!" Probably right, but if not, it would have been close.
Really? What did the D1 Coach say in return?
