Should You Transfer?

Below we will be discussing when you should transfer and when you should stay at your high school. I hope this helps out anyone who is thinking about leaving or in the process of leaving.

I’m not gonna sit here and be the cliche coach who says “back in my day nobody ever transferred schools” but I think it happens a little too often. Kids are afraid to face their problems in some cases and face competition. Trust me from my experience and some of my player’s experiences, when you run from competition it always has a way of finding you. So if you have to compete for a starting job I don’t suggest transferring for that reason. Especially any position other than QB. If you are a QB it’s a different story, if you lose a position battle, I understand transferring. You need to go where you are going to play. But if you’re a WR and you leave because of competition there are 3 other WR slots you could have competed for. At the end of the day you just need to get on the field so you can string together a highlight tape. College coaches know where you will fit in best when they scout you. You don’t need to worry about that, just get on the field where you can at your respective position. Now another reason guys transfer is because they feel their school is “too small” or doesn’t get enough “looks/exposure”. And I get that, but unless you aren’t playing it is a still possible to get recruited at a small school. There are some things you need to do for yourself like getting out to camps, finding out who the recruiting coordinator is for the bigger cities in your state so you can reach out to them & obviously dominating the competition you face. I don’t think that’s the most valid reason to transfer schools but I do understand where you are coming from. There is no guarantee that you will play at a bigger school either. A college coach can’t recruit you if you don’t have film. Just make sure you guys aren’t running from competition when you transfer & you aren’t leaving in hopes of more exposure. I think the only time to transfer is when you don’t like the situation you are in. If you hate the coaches & are unhappy with the program- then it might be the time to go. Whether you start or don’t. Just make sure you guys take multiple opinions from people you trust when making this decision.
