Changing the Game - SouthJersey.com

Dan Earl received his first letter from a college basketball recruiter more than 25 years ago, so it is understandable that he doesn't recall which school it came from.
But somewhere in the South Jersey home he grew up in, there sits a collection of memories from that hectic time in his life. "I probably have a box at my mother's house in Medford Lakes with a bunch of letters in it," says Earl, a star point guard at Shawnee High School in the early 1990s who went on to play at Penn State. These days, Earl is the one on the lookout for the next great point guard as the head men's basketball coach at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI), a Division I program. But instead of mailing out personal notes or literature about his school, he just fires off a text message to a 16-year-old kid. "I remember you could do a lot more in person back when Dan and I were being recruited; I think coaches could come to see you whenever they wanted to. "Usually, the types of kids we're recruiting, you know they're going to make good decisions on social media," Dan Earl says. Dan Earl can remember times during his recruitment when he just felt like being a kid, but even back then he realized the importance of his decision. That's a point he tries to make with the teenagers he's constantly talking to now. "Initially, you get a couple of phone calls and you're thinking, 'This is awesome.' You might watch the guy on TV or know a lot about his program. But after a while, some of these kids are just being inundated with phone calls or texts or whatever," Earl says.

"I don't remember who the first one was from, but I do remember getting a lot of them. Some schools would literally send a letter every single day, just to stay in touch."

When the Renegades ruled New Jersey basketball

Dan Earl, who scored 16 points, including 11 in the second half, was named the game's MVP.
The 6-3 junior point guard averaged 19.5 points and 9.4 assists that magical season. "We had high character people and I think us as players, certainly coach Kessler and his assistant Brian Anderson, were passionate about basketball and worked hard," said Dan, who is now the head coach of Virginia Military Institute. Shawnee's other starters were Bryan Benzel, a 6-6 senior forward, Corey Green, a 5-11 junior forward, and Dan Earl's brother, Brian, a 5-11 freshman guard who averaged 9.5 points. The Renegades edged undefeated Atlantic City 82-80 in overtime in the South Jersey final when Dan Earl scored a school-record 41 points. "I remember walking out after games and there was this element of moving onto the next game and you didn't realize how big of a deal it was," said Dan Earl.
