Top 10 Recruiting Tips

 

1.  Register (if you have not already) for the NCAA clearinghouse.  https://web3.ncaa.org/ecwr3/.   Respond to EVERY email a coach sends, even if it's a school you are not interested in.  Coaches talk and you don't want to have a "snobby" reputation.

3.  Be proactive with all schools on your top list.  Send them an email, a letter in the mail, a resume, Holiday card, like them on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, congratulate them on wins or recruit signings, constant updates, and your transcripts.  It will let them know how serious you are.

4.  Research Winter ID camps at the schools you are interested.  This is a pretty new recruiting strategy and lots of programs are holding them.  They have to take everyone that registers so d not procrastinate.  Most of the time, an ID camp involves a campus tour and other activities.  Perfect time to meet the coach and have them be involved in your training.  

5.  Protect yourself on social media.  Coaches are like private investigators.  They search for you on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc to find out more about you.  Even an innocent conversation on Twitter can turn a coach away.  Never use offensive language or say mean things to a friend, not everyone knows you are friends…..

6.  Always reach out to coaches who are attending an event multiple times.  1) send them an email that you are playing at this event.  2) the day the schedule is announced, send them a schedule and say "I hope you can make it".  3) Send an email the week of reminding them of your interest.  4) follow up the week after with a recap of your games and the results.           

7.  When you play away games, see if you can leave a little early and visit a campus close by.  Memphis Tennessee has multiple schools right there and some are pretty strong!

10.  Be realistic about your ability to play at certain schools.  You need to see as many college games as you can.  Get on line and see if the school has games on line.  Check the spring schedules and make an effort to see games.
