Introduction to College Recruiting
The college recruiting process can be quite intimidating for most high school athletes and their parents. There are many reasons why certain players get recruited to play college athletics, while others do not. Every year, hundreds of high school athletes fall through the cracks of college recruiting simply because they do not fully understand the college recruiting process.
In addition, most high school counselors do not possess the knowledge or experience in intercollegiate athletics to properly advise student-athletes on how to achieve their dream of receiving an athletic scholarship to play at the college level. At GPG we have come across only a limited number of high schools that have an appropriate program to successfully prepare student-athletes for the college recruiting process.
Our research has shown that:
- 80% of college student-athletes attend schools outside of the NCAA Division I. This means that there are over 1,600 schools that offer athletic scholarships!
- The average college team’s recruiting budget is $500. With such limited funds available, it is impossible for coaches to see all potential high school athletes that could be recruited for their programs. That is why a proactive approach is required to be seen by college coaches.
For these reasons GPG originally developed this manual, which contains an easy 10-step process to make it as simple as possible for you to obtain the college scholarship of your dreams and to GET RECRUITED NOW!
