Why Am I Not Being Recruited?
One of the biggest questions student athletes have on their mind today. "Why am I not being recruited?"
3 Questions you should be asking yourself?
1. What are my GRADES? - Are my grades and ACT or SAT test scores good enough to get into a college without a scholarship? If the answer is yes, then you are good. If the answer is borderline, then you must be able to show the person recruiting you that you can be a hard worker. Your spring grades need to reflect that you can make the grade when given the opportunity. 2 bad semesters of grades mean you haven't tried all year-round.
2. Is my COACHING STAFF helping me? - If you are not receiving any help from your coaching staff, then you need to find out why. It could be as simple as the head coach is too busy to deal with 60-100 players. Make sure that the coach understands that you are pursuing the possibility of going to the next level. Let the people who are recruiting you make the choice of whether you are good enough to join their team. Sometimes it's a matter of what they need to fill a position. You just need the OPPORTUNITY. Don't be mad at the coach, it's still your responsibility. Keep a working relationship with that coach, because you will need him or her in the end.
3. ARE MY HIGHLIGHTS GOOD ENOUGH ?- Remember, college coaches most of the time never meet the athlete in person. Usually they watch highlights of the players first, then they try to make contact with the coaching staff to inquire about you. Have your coach make you a copy of each game so you can create or find someone to create your video. You have to make a strong impression on them on your video. Here are some
Does and Don'ts.
1. Best plays go first on the video. With so many videos to watch the coach may never see more than the first minute of your video.
2. Use instrumental music or no music. Lyrics could have the coach turning the video off. Cursing or screaming songs is not what they want to hear when watching a video.
3. Put stats on you video only if they are decent, like 90 tackles and 6 sacks and 5 Ints. List your height and weight so they know that ahead of the time. Put your heaviest weight that you have been the current year on the video. High school players tend to be smaller than the playing size of a college player.
4. The video length should not be longer than 5 minutes or less than 2 minutes. Once they are interested you, they will have you send them a full game dvd. Make sure you check with your coach to make sure they get your best complete game.
5. If you play multiple positions, always put your primary position highlights first, but also include the other positions as well. The coach might be looking for one thing, but you might be there answer for another position as well. This will make your stock rise.
6. Hire a professional to do your highlight video. Parents are great but they are not the ones who should be filming and piecing the videos together. Most of the time they are talking or screaming throughout the video. Unless they have experience with editing videos, they tend to look too choppy, which will make a recruiter throw your dvd in the NOT interested pile of dvds because of the video quality. It will be cheaper for you to hire someone than have to pay for college as a walk-on. CHEAPER...
