24 year old Junior...how much of a factor is age in SA/FT recruiting?
Hey guys -- I'm a current junior at an HBCU (Morehouse-Hampton-Howard) and I took three years off before going to college. At the time, I was a big dummy & didn't know what I wanted to do after high school. Held a bunch of odd jobs until going back at 21 years old. I will graduate in the spring of 2014.
I'm 24 years old now.
If I get a SA offer next summer, I'll be 25 years old.
If I get a FT offer after graduation, I'll be 26 years old.
Will IBs hold that against me being 4 years older than most recruits? Or do they not care about age? Or should I just not mention it? I look youthful enough to pass for a college sophomore but, I'm sure questions will come up when they see a 1988 birth date.
