Student-Athletes and their families must be active participants in the recruitment process. Much of recruiting has little to do with the actual sport. The vast majority of student-athletes and their families need guidance to ensure their experience is appropriate and tailored to their wants and needs. No two recruitments are the same, and all can differ from day to day. There are a multitude of decisions that must be made throughout the process; therefore each student-athlete needs a personalized plan. These plans should begin taking shape prior to arriving in high school, but need to be flexible enough to adapt as the student-athlete progresses. The experience can be daunting, but there is no need to be fearful. There is a home for everyone.
