The following is being posted for Student Athletes and Parents to help gain a clear and concise understanding if a college coach has serious interest during the athletic recruiting process.


Coach noticed you:
. Mailed a questionnaire to fill out and return
. Mailed a summer camp application
. On the school's athletic mailing list

Coach is interested in you:
. All of the above
. Calls your high school coach
. Comes to see you play
. Emails you regularly
. Mails you a media guide and school information

Coach is very interested:
. All of the above
. Sends text messages
. Sets up phone conversation with you
. Sees you play more than once

Coach is committed:
. All of the above
. Sets up regular phone calls
. Invites you to make an official or unofficial visit

    Great guidelines MJP! I would add to the last line: Offers you a scholarship or, if school is an Ivy, offers you a likely letter.
