Why Athletes and Families Don't Succeed in the Recruiting Process

5 minute read


They think they have plenty of time

You will blink and it will be your senior year. As a 9th grader, you only have 3 summers before you graduate. That is 3 times for college coaches to see you play LIVE and to visit college campuses. You need to be proactive!

They think they are good enough and don't need help or to be proactive

A lot of times, athletes have been the best in every league they have played in and been told by everyone they have a great college future ahead of them. The truth is, everyone playing college ball has that same ability and were told the same thing. The stakes are higher and the level of competition is intense. You have to give yourself the best competitive edge you can!

They can't get out of their own way

Parents don’t think they need help and that “they got this”. We’ve seen so many times, families find out during Senior year, they “don’t have this” and they panic. Our plan is simple. Plug in as a sophomore or junior and own your recruiting process! 

The coach will help us

Your coach would like to help and probably does try. The reasons why you can’t rely on this alone:  1. Your teammates need their help too, 2. Your coach needs to game plan for the existing season, 3. Your coach doesn’t know enough college coaches, 4. They have a family at home, etc. Take control of YOUR recruiting so that whatever your coach does for you is icing on the cake!

No plan

Just like with most things, you need a plan to succeed. This is even more true with the college recruiting process. We provide a simple plan to plug into. We take the guesswork out of the equation for you. Create a plan, take action, and go get your scholarships!


CollegePrep Tip:

These reasons have prevented more scholarship opportunities than can be counted. We have years and years of experience in this process, you don't. Would you rather work with professionals or take your chances on your own? As parents, we all want our kids to have opportunities. Plug into our system and take control of your recruiting process!
