The Competition

Understanding How Coaches View Recruiting

With thousands of athletes across the globe competing to play in college it is important to gain an understanding of how players are identified. Initially there are thousands of players in every sport from a variety of levels. Initial evaluations begin based on the basics like height, graduation year and position. Coaches will make contact based on their evaluation which can be from seeing an athlete at an event, online, or through personal recommendation. Coaches will gauge interest to see if it is mutual. It is these initial steps that the thousands turns into dozens which turns into a handful of recruits at each college. As the recruiting process progresses, it continues to narrow as visits and offers are extended. 

Interest, Talent, and Expectations
