With the Early Signing Period just around the corner and a few hundred prospects ready to sign on the dotted line, many prospective student athletes are still in search of the exposure they need to find a home at the college level.  Here are a few tips on how to attract interest from a college coach during your high school season.

  1. Be Prepared - Have your high school schedule, academic transcript, ACT/SAT scores and video readily available for college coaches to view and analyze.
  2. Get Updated Video - Make sure to have updated video available for college coaches.  Hopefully you have improved and possibly gotten bigger and stronger since the summer or last high school season, so having up to date video from early in your high school year will allow you to put your best foot forward in the eyes of college coaches.
  3. Market Yourself - Despite your best efforts, many times contacting a college coach yourself or with your parents help can be very difficult. Understand that most college programs receive a few dozen inquiries each day and the majority are not good matches for their program.  As a result, you need to find a respected recruiting source, like CS Hoops, to assist you in finding and contacting the right coaches for you.
  4. Win Games - The best chance to be seen by college coaches during the high school season is by advancing in postseason play.  State championship tournaments are often hosted under one roof with many games being played which becomes an attractive destination for college coaches looking to fill their roster for the following fall.
