COLLEGE RECRUITING

College Timeline

The college recruiting process is exactly that -- a process. These guidelines are designed to help players and parents understand and develop a timeline of tasks that should be completed over the recruitment years. It should be noted that parents should most definitely be involved in this process, but most communication should come from the player when interacting with colleges and universities. Coaches want to see kids who are independent, can hold a conversation, and are willing to lead; having the parent do most of the communication is typically seen negatively from the coaches perspective. With that in mind, it is encouraged that players begin the administrative process themselves.
