There are hundreds of ways to lose out on the recruiting process. For the sake of time, I will choose four topics. While others may not number them in the same way, it’s their choice.
Student-athletes all across the country are waiting for the recruiting process to come to them. This is not how it works. There is a lot that goes into the recruiting process and it starts with grades. Don’t wait until your senior year of high school to get serious about grades because it’s too late. Once you hit the 9th grade, if you have any thoughts of being a future collegiate athlete, you need to get the process started. It may take those next few years to get on a college programs radar, but at least coaches will know your name by then.
2. Your are listening to the wrong people.
There are people in our lives that have the best intentions for us, but it does not always work out that way. When it comes to the recruiting process, everyone believes that they know so much about it. Are you listening to them?
Aside from family members, you will have local “street agents” trying to guide you if you can put a few dollars in his/her pocket. “Street agents” are sometimes rival coaches that try and lure you away from a team and claiming that they can get you into college. Keep your circle tight. Just because you can hear them does not mean you have to listen.
3. Getting out of your own way!
If you post inappropriate things on social media, it will come back to haunt you. If you are selfish playing a team game, it will come back to haunt you. If it’s always about you, it will come back to haunt you.
