Evaluation and Recommendation
If a family is interested in learning what the likelihood is of their student-athlete being recruited by a selective school, this is where to start. You will receive an objective evaluation by phone and/or email based on the following information provided to and evaluated by me:
    Evaluation based on:
  • The student-athlete’s desire, athletic background, physical attributes, statistics, athletic honors or recognition, and extracurricular accomplishments
  • A review of the student’s academic and testing record, and confirmation of the student’s meeting of the NCAA core course requirements to be an NCAA "Qualifier"
  • A conversation with the athlete’s coach/s about the athlete’s ability to play at the collegiate level
  • The colleges the student-athlete is most interested in attending
  • The prospect and family goals, including family financial situation, scholarship needs, and academic and geographic preferences

  • Recommendation
  • Discussion of the chances of being recruited at selective schools at each level (Division I, II, III), and what it will depend on
  • Recommendation of schools that student-athlete is likely to qualify for as both a recruited and as a non-recruited athlete

Recommendation Emails and Phone Calls
I will send a personalized email recommendation to all appropriate selective school coaches and continue to maintain personal contact with the coaches through phone calls or email on behalf of the student-athlete.

  • To evaluate and advise as to the athletic implications of applying Early Decision
  • To maintain contact with coaches to determine the recruitment status of the athlete
  • To make recommendations about the application process
  • To make adjustments to the strategic action plan as new information becomes available
