Recruiting has been majorly impacted, esp for the 2021 class by this pandemic. UNC has done ok (actually fantastic), but I can only imagine how it’s affected some schools. Kids are having to go on virtual campus visits, and meet professors over Zoom. If I were a high school player… I would consider trying to stretch HS to 2022 somehow to make sure I was going to the right place.
I can only imagine the transfer portal 1 -2 years from now.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Recruiting will be tough for player and coaches. A lot of high school kids may not even get their senior year. If college doesn’t play, then everyone keeps their eligibility but a new class of high school kids will still be looking for somewhere to go.
