Q: How does the college recruiting process work? It can go three ways. Coach to player, player to coach or coach to coach contact. A coach can reach out to a player after seeing them live or film and there academic standing. A player can reach out to a coach expressing interest. A club/high school coach can reach out to a college coach with information on their players. Q: How should a recruit let you know he/she wants to play for your college/university? First, fill out that college/university questionnaire. Then make that contact(email) but know the rules for what division you are looking into because seniors and juniors we can email and call but sophomores and freshman's we can only email. We can accept phone calls but we can not make that first call to them yet. If, they send an email they should have these things in there: first and last name, grad year, position, major looking to pursue, high school or club team you play on, film if you have it at the time of email, contact information at the end of email and a little information about you. Q: What coaches look for on official and unofficial visits? Your interaction and body language. Are they asking questions and concerns. Their interaction with the players and etc. Q: When do you start identifying potential recruits? Senior and Junior year. But, I would go to tournaments, put on a camp or Prospect day to see sophomores and freshman to see them in action and then I can email them and start that communication flow. Then, now that they are Senior and Juniors we can go further into the recruiting. Q: College coaches are reaching out. Now what? Browser, there school see if it's of interest. If it is, email that coach back and open the communication flow. But, at any point and there is no more interest or you committed let that coach know. Q: What advice do you have for a high school player not getting much attention from college coaches? We as coaches do get lost of emails a day or for the week so, be patient for a reply. Give it a few days or a week. Then you can resend them an email following up on your first email. Those that aren't getting seen or hard to get to tournaments get as much film you can and send them an email. Just sending an email is not enough especially if they can not make any of the tournaments your team is attending. When a coach does open that communication flow stay in communication. Don't go for weeks or months not responding to an email, text or call. Once, you stop having interest or committed somewhere let those coaches you reached out to and those that are reaching out to you know. Build Your Profile: https://underrecruitedprep.com
College Recruiting Q&A
Riley101 posted a topic in High School SportsQ: How does the college recruiting process work? Each coach at each University recruits in their own way, BUT, there are some things that we all do. Example: Determine position needs which leads to: 1-evaluate basketball talent, 2-evaluate athleticism, 3-evaluate competitiveness, 4-evaluate character, 5 evaluate projected level, 6- project academic success, 7- investigate behavior, investigate family situation. This is my important list with about 27,550 additional items that I expect my assistant coaches to know about a prospect. Q: How should a recruit let you know he/she wants to play for your college/university? We prefer to see them play first to solve No. 1,2,3,4 questions above and also by interviewing coaches/teachers/family members. If we have not evaluated a prospect in a “live” situation, we do look at film as well, however that is limited in our evaluation process so we determine from film if we want to go to the trouble of watching a prospect actually play or practice. Q: What coaches look for on official and unofficial visits Behavior, behavior, behavior, interaction with present team members and if the prospect is truly interested or aloof or cool. Obvious, Sincere interest goes along way. Q: When do you start identifying potential recruits? Some but few in the 9thor 10th grade, usual evaluation for us begins in Junior season. If a prospect is decided to be a prospect in the 9th or 10th grade, they are usually very special players. Q: College coaches are reaching out. Now what? Student-athlete needs to also do plenty of evaluation – regarding insititution:quality of , reputation of, academic offerings, location/distance of campus, interest campus community has toward athletics, coaching staff/style BUT mainly coach’s record. Really good Won-Loss record, over time (at least 6 years) is a good barometer of coaching ability. *A COACH IS WHAT HIS RECORD SAYS HE IS Q: What advice do you have for a high school player not getting much attention from college coaches? Send film, not just hi-lite film, include game film so the evaluation process can begin or it is decided no interst is there. Either way the student-athlete saves their time and effort.
