College Search Information

Below are 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 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 student athlete in college.

2. You must know the GPA and Test Score requirements required to be eligible as a college freshman.

3. You should register with the NCAA and/or NAIA Initial Eligibility Centers.

These items are all contained in the information provided below.

The documents below are designed to help you get started in your college search. 

First - Spend some time with the recruiting overview.  Some of the information will help you at he beginning of the process while other parts will help you as you get further into your search.

Second - Start working on your player profile (resume).  The template below is a solid form for you to use.  Be sure to update it as you move through each season.

Third - As you prepare to start the process of contacting schools and coaches, you will want to create a basic form email/letter.  We have provide a couple of samples for you to use as a start.  We have also included information about what the email/letter should include and some other tips.
