Serious Recruiting begins with your highlight film. That’s highlights of your varsity season not JV not freshman and definitely not seven on seven. Seven on seven tournaments have become like AAU basketball. Everyone wants to play it because their playing games they’re not practice you’re not working on fundamentals you’re not working on mechanics your just playing the game. I don’t know of any coaches at any level that have offered a kid off of seven on seven it’s all about seeing you play at the high school level. Your footwork your throwing motion accuracy and consistency and your decision making are what there looking for on that film. Ultimately can you play an win games for there program.
When The Quarterbacks Edge was first launched, I quickly realized most parents have no idea what`s involved in the business of college football recruitment. At times, it makes no sense at all. It`s a very subjective process. Often times you`re trying to decide if you can believe what your being told. Recruiting Coaches can sit in your living room, look you in the eye and say things that are, at that moment, absolutely true. However, a few weeks later, the situation can completely change, so what you thought you knew as fact, is now questionable. The manner of college recruiting can be summed in this saying, “Right now, you’re the prettiest girl at the dance; until the next pretty girl comes to dance that is.”
Recruiting can be an overwhelming experience. As an athlete developing with The Edge, my expertise and resume of connections are available to help you get your techniques and steps ready for the process that is the dance of college football recruiting.
I’ve prepared the list below to give you an example of just a few of the questions you’ll need to ask and have answered when you begin your own recruitment experience:
WHAT IS THE REQUITING PROCESS?
WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR IN A PROGRAM?
HOW DOES IT ALL GET STARTED?
WHAT IS AN OFFICIAL OFFER?
WHEN DO YOU KNOW IF THEY ARE REALLY INTERESTED?
WHAT QUESTIONS DO YOU NEED TO ASK ABOUT THE PROGRAM?
WHAT MAIL IS IMPORTANT? WHAT MAIL IS JUNK?
WHEN SHOULD YOU BELIEVE WHAT THEY’RE TELLING YOU?
