DECEMBER RECRUITING TIPS

Holiday’s – During the first weeks of December coaches will have more time to communicate with recruits, unless they are a winter sport and are in season. Expect communications to slow down as we get closer to the December holiday season through Martin Luther King Day in January. MLK Day is typically when college classes resume.

Soccer – National Championships are taking place.

Track/Cross Country – December is when student-athlete should be proactive as coaches are really busy during the month of January.

Tennis – USTA Winter Nationals are taking place.

Coaches Conventions – AVCA (Volleyball) & NFCA (Softball)

ALERT: DI coaches are always recruiting and looking at athletes, however, at this point in the recruiting process there is not always a spot available or money tied to that spot, especially since we have past the early signing period for majority of sports.

ALERT: For the following sports at this point only low major DI programs might have scholarship money available with an opening on their roster: Basketball, football, volleyball, tennis, softball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, golf, water polo, ice hockey, and field hockey.

ALERT: College coaches continue to recruit earlier and we have received notifications from DII, NAIA and even DIII programs that they are done with the 2011 class.

Football – If a recruit is not receiving phone calls from DI programs, the DI program is not interested in them and need to look at walk-on spots, as well as, lower programs.

Track, Cross Country, Swimming, Women’s Golf and Wrestling are sports that are more open across the divisions at this point.
