I wanted to share a quick tip about the recent communication period. It is important to know that as of Sunday, September 1, 2019 the recruiting contact period begins. Once the new contact period begins, Junior and Senior college prospects can start receiving a lot more communication from college coaches. Various forms of communication will take place, however the most common are:
- Weekly phone calls from college coaches (one per week)
- Personal correspondence from college coaches via text, phone or email
- High school campus visit (only one)
- Verbal Scholarship Offers
- Invitations for official college campus visits
- Recruiting materials such as college brochures and letters
Athletes who experience this level of communication can be sure that it is a favorable indicator of interest.
Athletes not getting any communication we should be proactive immediately. Consider contacting a reputable and credible recruiting resource like PrepStar to to learn how to open recruiting communication with college coaches during this contact period.
