Recruiting 101

When should I start the recruiting process?
If you are serious about playing sports at the next level, you should start your freshman year of high school.  The recruiting process is a once-in-lifetime experience that requires both the parents and the students to pursue early.

Are maintaining good grades important?
What a student does off the field is just as important as what takes place on the field.  As the recruiting process begins, maintaining good grades becomes more and more important.  Performance in the classroom tells a coach about an athlete's likelihood of reaching their potential on the playing field.  Visit 360 Development for our best in class educational team.

Why is an evaluation of athletic ability necessary?
By junior year of high school, an athlete should be evaluated by an expert to determine what Division best matches their abilities/performance so they can begin looking at colleges. 

What should I look for in a college?
You should like the campus and the facilities, it should have a strong academic program you are interested in, you should like the coaches, getting playing time is a good possibility, and you can see yourself still going there if you cannot compete in athletics.

When to reach out to college coaches?
Junior year is typically the time most athletes begin to reach out to college coaches.  At Destination Recruit® we
provide our proven best-practice communication tools for you to utilize throughout your recruiting journey. 

What is an official visit?
Any visit to a college campus by you and your parents (you must be invited), paid for by the college that lasts up to 48 hours. You receive three complimentary tickets to an athletic contest. You can make up to five official visits.

What is an unofficial visit?
Any visit to a college campus paid by you or your parents. You can take as many unofficial visits as you want.

What is a National Letter of Intent?
A binding agreement between a student and a college. The student agrees to attend the college for one academic year and the college agrees to provide financial aid for one academic year. It does not guarantee admission into the school.
What is a verbal commitment?
A commitment to attend a school before the student signs his or her National Letter of Intent. This is not binding and can be made at anytime.
What does redshirting mean?
A redshirt season is a year in which a student-athlete does not compete at all against outside competition. During a year in which the student-athlete does not compete, a student can practice with his or her team and receive financial aid.
