WHY PLANET PROSPECT
PROVEN WAYS TO GET RECRUITED
The recruiting process begins the moment you step into the classroom your freshman year. Most College coaches don’t recruit just athletes. They recruit student-athletes. Did you know that if you just meet the minimum NCAA academic standards, you will not be recruited by most college programs, regardless of your athletic ability? Most colleges offer partial scholarships and make up the difference with academic scholarship money. Bad grades will only limit the number of schools that will accept you academically, so it is very important to keep your grades up. Work hard on and off the field. Don’t limit your athletic recruiting options and miss out on a great school because you didn’t work hard in the classroom
If you’re a high school freshman reading this, you’re off the a great start. The earlier you get started, the better chance you have of being recruited by college coaches. Start compiling game and skills film and keep up with your grades to ensure that you meet standards for college entrance.
