Every once in a while, I’ll be accused by a commenter of posting something purely for click bait purposes. Hey, you know what? If I really wanted to post stuff merely to drive traffic here, I’d be writing will he or won’t he recruiting pieces ’til the cows come home.
But I can’t do it. Not if it means trying to climb inside the heads of seventeen-year olds and speculate about their decisions. (As the father of three delightful daughters, I can tell you that the inside of a seventeen-year old’s head is a mystifying place, both to the adult and to the kid.) And especially if it means winding up in a place where we label the likes of Ray Drew as “overhyped”.
There’s a market for it, no doubt. People spend lots of money subscribing to recruiting services. But I just can’t do it.
