One of the most common questions parents ask me is, “When is the right time to start the recruiting process?” So, I want to share three tips to know when is the right time to start the recruiting process and improve the chance of playing at the next level.
1. Start early
The earlier athletes begin planning the recruiting process the better. Most D1 prospects athletes are identified by the end of their sophomore year! Also, recruiting boards of D2 and D3 colleges start to fill up early. So Athletes that are serious about recruiting should start early.
2. Be proactive
Don’t be afraid to take control of the recruiting process. For one reason or another, too many athletes (and parents) wait, only later to wish that they had started the process earlier. Proactive people make something happen by taking control.
3. Get help
College recruiting can be confusing so you’ll want help to navigate the process. Since 1981, PrepStar has been a reliable recruiting resource helping both families and college coaches.
