Recruiting Tip of the Week

Do You Want To Be Recruited By College Coaches?

Did you know:

  • Only 3% of HS student-athletes will get an athletic scholarship
  • The popular term "full four-year ride" technically does not exist.  Only recently did D1 schools even gain the ability to guarantee more than one year of financial aid.
  • Cumulative GPA (the one on your report card) does not equal your core-course GPA (the one that colleges look at).   Its not uncommon for the core-course GPA to be a full point lowe.
  • For the Class of 2016, the NCAA's minimum core-course GPA requirement rises from 2.0 to 2.3.  Ten of the 16 core-course requirements must be completed by the end of the junior year.
  • A student-athlete may not take an official visit without registering with the NCAA Eligibility Center )formerly the Clearinghouse).
