Each athlete has their own starting point
Finding a good starting point to begin your journey to getting recruited is monumental in making your final goals lead you to success. If you are prepared, you are going to be ahead of other recruits when it comes to finding a college opportunity.
Being prepared for college means you are researching the different types of colleges out there. It means you are looking into what it takes to compete in each of the division levels and working hard to find the right college for you. Unfortunately there is no magic solution for getting recruited and finding a college because each athlete will have their own path and will find their own way through the process.
You need to GET BUSY to make your recruiting a reality!
As a recruit, you have no time to waste, you need to be getting organized and creating college lists; colleges that you think you are interested in attending and competing for.
Don’t think that if you are a junior in high school and have 1-10 colleges you are interested in that those college coaches will know who you are. Your recruitment will depend on how hard you are willing to work and how well you stay dedicated to the recruitment process.
It’s imperative for potential recruits who are not the top prospects of the nation, their state or even of their school, to realize recruiting is all about being persistent and making opportunities happen.
If you believe you have what it takes to compete with the players at top colleges then you need to do what is necessary to get to that level; whether its training more, finding more competitive teams to play for, or making extra time to dedicate towards the recruiting process.
Research college programs & start reaching out to the coaches
It’s one thing to reach out to coaches, but another to be prepared when you begin to contact them. Coaches will know by your correspondence if you have done your homework and are knowledgeable about their team and program. Be the athlete they will want to get back in touch with. If you are able to make a great first impression, then your recruitment will show more results.
Remember, top college coaches are hearing from hundreds of recruits from around the globe. They have seen it all, so make your communication count.
