I wanted to share a quick tip about the recent communication period. It is important to know that as of September the recruiting contact period begins. Now that the contact period begins, Junior and Senior college prospects can start receiving a lot more communication from college coaches.
Here are some forms of communication that can 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.
However, athletes not getting any communication should start being proactive immediately. There is an old but true phase, “if you keep doing what you’re doing, you will keep getting what you”re getting. If the results you have are not what you expected then it’s time to make a change.
Student athletes and supportive parents should consider contacting a reputable and credible recruiting resource like PrepStar to to learn how to increase exposure and open recruiting communication with college coaches.
