Attend team and individual camps offered by the universities that you are interested in: This is a good way for the coaching staff to recognize you and get to know who you are. Coaches have an opportunity to converse and interact with you on a different level. During this time coaches won’t be recruiting you but rather evaluating you. Coaches take everything into account when making a decision on a recruit. They’ll look to see if you are on time, if you are focused, do you warm-up or goof off, do you listen well to instructions, how do you interpret instructions, and the list goes on. Just remember a bad attitude will leave a lasting impression.
Play in showcases and tournaments: No matter what sport you play you need to get in front of college coaches. During the offseason college coaches spend majority of their time on the recruiting trail. They are travelling to big tournaments and showcases all over the country. The key to getting noticed is playing in the right events. It would be better for you to compete in an event where the talent level is extremely high, than playing in an event where your team is by far the best. Coaches are going to travel to the location where they have a chance to view the most talent, while evaluating you against top level competition
Take some unofficial visits: If you follow all of our tips and stay in contact with coaches you are bound to get offered to visit some campuses. Any college that you are considering you should try to visit. You can go to any school you want for unofficial visits. These are funded by you and not the university. You can take an unlimited number of unofficial visits as you like. We suggest visiting because you might have second thoughts about a school after visiting the campus.
Get on the radar: If you haven’t made a list of colleges that you might want to attend, you should do it now. Then go to their athletic websites, and fill out the recruiting forms. This will get you into their database. Now they have your info and know who you are. That puts you a step closer in getting recruited.
These are just a few of the things you should be doing. Follow this link for more helpful advice.
