    Absolutely.

    No doubt it's going to be different from kid to kid. Under the "elite" header it says identification and interest. Not "offers made". Hence me saying 8th grade. I guarantee if a kid is playing at a very high level and has the physical aspect to back it up people know about him. That doesn't mean that they're going to rush to make an offer, only that he is on their radar.

    Like I said, from the day the first coach expressed interest to the day my son committed was a little over two years.
