my question is in the vein of do they invite only a very select few who almost all vome, or do they invite say anyone with an offer or interest (which I assume to be in the hundreds) and then winnow it down?

One thing we should all remember is that it's AUGUST. Also known as football season. Lots of these guys have already started practice. So would you rather have a QB who skips his high school team's practices to fly across the country for a BBQ? Or would you rather have a QB who fulfills his current obligations to his teammates?

Also...I don't think we should be telling high schoolers how they should spend their money. Sure, his dad was a pro athlete, but flights, gas, etc. cost time and money. It's not like he would be driving from Detroit or Grand Rapids.

but, of course, it will be manageable in order to allow the recruits access to the various coaches and fellow recruits. Many of the recruits do as much recruiting as the coaches. 

Obviously commits and top targets to next signing class will be a priority,. but I believe they have players they are hoping will be a part of both the '18 and '19 classes, respectively.

Belleville has some great young talent.  Back in the day they were in our conference (Wolverine A). They always had some great athletes (baseball, football and basketball).
