Your explanation of "buckets" for individual teams proved to be helpful to both my sons. Each of my sons met with the coach for college visits. Quite often the D3 tack and swim teams are not as good as the teams at a large suburban HS.
I have passed your advice on to a number od different families with good athletes with better than average grades.
The net result has been admission to better schools with a lower cost than a partial athletic scholarship to a d1 of d2 school.
Baseball, softball, M&W basketball, volleyball, and track and swimming
