If he's still in college he's got a ways to go. They won't even consider him until he's a Captain or very senior 1st Lt (Captain select). I would advise him to do his PltCmdr time in the infantry as a 2nd/1st Lt then go to one of the Recon Bn's as a PltCmdr or Company XO, S-3A etc.. Any information given now regarding the MARSOC Officer track will likely change in the 5 or so years til he pins on Captain bars. He needs to focus on the 5-10 meter target (graduating school AND passing IOC). Hope this helps.
