Below is a list of links and documents that will serve as resources to help you with the college search/recruiting process. There are a number of other resources that you should not neglect. Your high school counselor should be number one on that list.
One of the first things that you should understand as a prospective college recruit is that you have to be proactive in the recruiting process. In being proactive, you should first become familiar with the following:
1. You must make sure that you are following the correct curriculum and taking the correct classes in order to be eligible to participate as a freshman student-athlete in college.
2. You should know the GPA and Test Score requirements to be eligible as a college freshman.
3. You should register with the NCAA and/or NAIA Initial Eligibility Centers.
Spend some time with the College Overview document, it will provide some basic chronological information and where to start the process. Creating a player profile should be one of the first items to complete. Soon thereafter, you should start planning to communicate with the colleges/coaches on your initial list of interest.
