The Recruitment Process
There are two reasons high school students do
not get recruited:
1. They are not good enough.
2. The right college coaches who may need
their talent have not heard of them.
Three Step Process
Assess Athletic Ability
(high school or club coach)
Identify Appropriate Colleges
(find the right “fit”)
Communicate with the college coach
(phone, email or letter)
Student Questions for their High
School/Club Coach
How good do you think I am?
What level and size school do you
recommend?
What colleges and college coaches do you
know?
Do you have any search suggestions?
Might I have problems at the collegiate
level?
Could you prepare a letter of
recommendation?
Would you be willing to contact college
coaches on my behalf?

requirements (verify you have the correct number of
core courses and that the core courses are on your high
school's 48-H with the eligibility center).

counselor send a copy of your transcript. If you have
attended any other high schools, make sure a transcript
is sent to the eligibility center from each high school.

sent to the eligibility center (the code is "9999").

Recruiting Advice
Do not hesitate to call or e-mail coaches. If you don’t,
someone else is. BE PROACTIVE!
Use E-Mail. It gives the coach the ability to contact on
their own time.
Do some research on your own. You can get a good feel
for the school/team/coach by looking at their website.
Use contact time wisely – Prepare a list of good questions.
Answer the questions thoroughly and thoughtfully.
Beyond “yes,” “no,” and “um”.
There are no dumb questions. Get to know the coaches
and see how you’d feel being with them for four years.
They want to talk with the student and get an idea about
who they are – not the parents!
