Recruiting 101


  • Film is your resume.  Highlight tape should be 20 plays or less

  • Only 5.7% of the 1.2 million HS football players play in college.

  • Be reasonable (D-1? Really?)

  • Financial decisions for D2, NAIA, and D3.  What’s it worth to you.  99% college football is not a career it’s a way to have fun.   Less than 2.5% get “full rides”

  • ALWAYS ask what out of pocket cost AND student loans are

  • Avoid recruiting services

  • Attend combine/camps at schools you wish to attend

  • The better your grades the more options you have. – D3

  • Social media matters – first place colleges research character

  • Tell your coach if your interested in playing college ball

What can you do now?

  • Be a great man
