Suggestions for Juniors and Seniors
2011 flips the calendar page on the high school football season and recruiting is in full swing. January means different things for different classes.
Seniors: if you are a Class of 2011, you are in a full sprint to the end of the scholarship recruiting year.
a. If you have a scholarship offer, you need to be prepared to make a decision--QUICK. College coaches will be pressuring you for an answer and if you can't give them one, they are likely to withdraw and offer that spot to another player.
b. If you don't have a Division I offer and no coaches have called you on the phone or visited you in your home, you need to realize you are NOT getting an offer. If you are still getting mail, then you need to find out "where you stand". Enlist the assistance of your high school coach to help you determine that.
c. If you want to play college football and you fit in to category "b" above, you need to readjust your goals and get in contact with schools at the D-2, D-3, NAIA, and/or JC level.
Juniors: If you are a Class of 2012, you are about to get on the clock full time. Not all colleges are in position to turn full attention to juniors until after Signing Day, Feb 2, but they will then.
a. Go online and fill out player questionnaire on various school websites.
b. Get your 2011 highlight tape finished, so coaches can evaluate you.
c. Check out the Recruiting Game Plans on the Programs page of this website.
d. Send me a copy of your highlight tape so I can evaluate you as a potential prospect for our Dave Campbell's Top 300 team this summer. Email me and I'll tell you how.
