It’s one thing to find all of your potential recruits in one place. But learning how to make your program seem more viable to talented recruits that would be great fits academically and socially?
Between other coaches providing advice, consultants who are hired to help advise you in your search for recruits, and recruiting services who work with recruits every day, knowing where to find definitive insights into the mind of a high school prospect can be pretty difficult.
In an effort to make recruiting easier and lessen the mystery of working with high school prospects, we would like to share some of what we know about how prospects feel about the recruiting process.
There’s something unique about hearing these stories directly from student-athletes: to hear about what they went through, to hear about what scared them or intimidated them, how they were able to succeed and to hear about their final decisions is a pretty powerful experience.
In order to share that experience with others, we started this blog – Recruited Today. This blog is full of stories from prospects about their experiences throughout the recruiting process.
It is our hope that these stories can provide coaches with the real stories about what it’s like to be a high school prospect today and help better the recruiting process for everyone.
Keep an eye on this blog for new stories every day.
