Solid CorpBanking SA to IB FT Recruiting?

Have been lurking on here for a while now and first time posting. I accepted a 2022 CorpBanking SA offer a while back at a top bank where CB and IBD are under the same umbrella. It was the first superday I did and accepted the offer, and I received many invites to superdays for CB at top banks but declined all of them. I also never really did IB recruiting because I found out I wanted to do banking kind of late and never thought I would make it. Now, I feel like I am settling a bit too early and want to pursue IB. Is it better for me to stay at my current bank after the SA program this summer and try to move laterally to the IB division (which might be very hard) or should I do FT IB recruiting in my senior year?
