Yes, but ultimately a coach will play you where THEY feel you can help the team the most. Even during the recruiting process, they can promise you one position and switch you to another position after you’ve enrolled. There is no guarantee what position they will put you in once you are on campus, no matter what they are telling you during the recruiting process.
When sending out film, attending camps/combines or talking with coaches express your interest in the change. Ultimately, when doing evaluations coaches are looking at size, skill, strength and speed so they can determine if you possess the physical abilities that can translate to another position at the college level.
Two big factors on the success of transitioning are having the size, strength and speed to hold your own at the position and on your attitude of the change. Give yourself an advantage by working on the position skills and fundamentals of the new position.
