about all freshmen going through a transition phase.
Although a different sport, the point still resonates. I remember my first season playing soccer at Clemson.
In high school, you're one in a handful of legitimate collegiate prospects surrounded primarily by teammates who will probably never have the opportunity to play collegiately.
Once you get to the collegiate level, the speed of the players and the pace of the game is a stark contrast to the high school game. You go from being one of the best players on your team, in your conference, and/or in your state, to being surrponded by players who are all just as good if not better than you.
It's incredibly eye-opening and it does take some time to adjust.
