(1) The recruiting process has already started
Most people wonder when to start the recruiting process. Well, it has already started. You officially become a scholarship prospect to college coaches when you enter high school. However, each time you step onto a court, every time you play in a tournament, you are exposing yourself to potential opportunities to be recruited by colleges and universities. Word of mouth travels quickly. It is best to always behave and play like you are being watched.
(2) Recruiting starts with verified 3rd party information
It is very important to have your academic record, athletic talent, and standardized test scores verified by a qualified independent party to determine what your expectations should be. Navigating the path through the process can be overwhelming, as each school has different requirements. Having a comprehensive and cohesive evaluation makes the process of choosing a school much easier for the student, the parents and the individual school.
