Im a d1 athlete and Ive been seriously contemplating tranferring schools. I am a sophomore right now and am a bit unsure of how to proceed. I just dont feel like the school I am at is the best place to be . . . Im doing really well academically, 3.8 GPA, but the coach made the place out to be something that it isnt and he made himself out to be something he is not. He is one of the most repulsive human beings I have ever met (fat, lazy, cheated on his wife, utterly useless, a glorified babysitter).
The problem is my teammates are awesome, we are like a family, and I would have a difficult time leaving the friends I have made, many of whom will be at my wedding when the time comes. But my game the past 2 years has gotten worse and the practice facilities are awful. The school I am considering is a fully-funded D1 program and I know the coach very well. Before I entered college he told me he wanted me to transfer to his school at some point, and it is now or never. His team will be at a tournament we are going to this weekend and I intend to speak with.
Anyone else been in this kind of a situation? Any advice from fellow college athletes about transferring? I have been seriously thinking about it for the better part of 3 months . . . its either go or no go!
