Why Should You Do All This Research? To Be Recruited
You are probably saying to yourself, “Wow that’s a lot of research!” Well, it’s really not that much research. It could take you less than 30 minutes to read the coaches bios, program history and current roster. Once you got a hold of some of your personal connections or players/current graduates of the team, it would only take 10-15 minute conversation to get a general feel for the mentality of the coach and culture of the program. Information you are going to want anyway before you make a decision on a school.
“Why am I doing all this research? The answer is because you want to be MUCH more RELEVANT in your emails, calls and videos than every other athlete trying to get a coach’s attention.”
Another question you are probably asking yourself is “Why am I doing all this research?” The answer is because you want to be MUCH more RELEVANT in your emails, calls and videos than every other athlete trying to get a coach’s attention. You want these messages to grab their attention and make them stop and think and hopefully respond to you. College Coaches get hundreds, if not thousands, of calls, emails, direct mail, video, etc. and you must separate yourself from the pack and get their attention. BE RELEVANT and remember: It’s about THEM not YOU.
