Mike White has the latest on the recruitment of Mars basketball player Robby Carmody.
"Robby Carmody is a 6-foot-4 guard on the Mars High School basketball team who is ranked the No. 47 junior in the country by ESPN and is one of the most heavily recruited basketball players in the WPIAL in a decade. Carmody's father, Rob II, is in the middle of it all as dad, head coach at Mars and also assistant for his son's AAU team (Ohio Basketball Club). The following is another installment of Carmodys Corner, a diary from the elder Carmody that will appear periodically in the Post-Gazette, as told to P-G writer Mike White.
On June 15, this recruiting process changed a lot for Robby. It was a crazy day.
That was the first day college coaches could make personal contact with a player from the class of 2018. Before, coaches could call me, but only because I'm his high school coach.
At 12:01 that day, he started getting text messages from coaches. Most coaches might not call at 12:01, but they started to text. The rest of the day was kind of like a whirlwind. Robby would be on the phone and another coach would call. You try to manage that while still trying to get a workout in during the day."
