Below are some of the schools that have inquired about our Lead The Way Club players and asked us to share the details of their College Prospect Days. In addition to the few listed below, we encourage you to reach out to colleges of interest to you, fill out thier athletic questionnaire and research upcoming clinics and summer camps. Attending college clinics is a great start in the college selection process. Players will have the opportunity to learn from college coaches and meet current players, as well as learn and tour the campus. If you are further along in the recruiting process use these clinics as an opportunity to begin narrowing down your choices. Email the coach prior to attending and request a meeting to learn more about the school and the recruiting process at the college.
As per the NCAA a prospect is considered a recruited athlete if the college takes one of the following actions:
If they provide the prospect with an official visit.
If they have an off-campus contact with the prospect or the prospect’s parents or legal guardians.
If they offer the prospect a National Letter of Intent or an athletic scholarship agreement.
If they initiate a telephone conversation with the prospect or his parents or legal guardians more than one time.
Ironically, a coach can have frequent e-mail conversations with a prospect but that athlete will still not be defined as a recruited athlete if the coach does not use any of the four actions above to encourage the prospect to attend the college and join their athletic program.
