RECRUITING CHECKLIST

A 4-Step Guide

1/6

Deciding where to continue your athletic career in collegiate athletics is exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. Many of the nerves can stem from the overall recruiting process itself. With various factors including a global pandemic and now N.I.L (Name, Image, and Likeness), there are still some uncertainties to committing. As of July 1, 2021, student-athletes competing in NCAA intercollegiate athletics are permitted to receive compensation for the use of their name, image or likeness (NIL) for commercial activities, including endorsements through traditional and social media, appearances, entrepreneurial activities,  in-kind deals, autographs and more, in accordance with NCAA guidelines.

Why is recruiting important? 

 

Recruiting is vital when thinking about pursuing an athletic career beyond little leagues and high school. There are many gray areas and variables to recruiting. The most important aspect of recruiting is finding a way to make incremental progress feel productive. Recruiting determines where you will be, hopefully, for the next four years. Typically going for the school that makes you feel most comfortable and at home as well as making sure the school meets your personal needs as an athlete should be considered. Division one programs compete every year for the best recruiting class, who can get the best players and build a team with the goal of a National Championship within the four years.

The Process
There are many steps to being recruited beyond showing your work, the first thing we recommend is that the athlete reads the NCAA's Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete.
