Recruiting 101

Here are a few recruiting tips to keep in mind while you are looking for that special player who can change your program:

#1-Never Work at a Place or for a Coach You Don’t Believe In.

#2-Know the Mission of Your Institution.

#3-Always Be Honest.

#4-Stick To Your Principles.

#5-Be Professional.

#6-Have the Recruit’s Best Interest at Heart.

#7-Recruit Kids with Good Character.

#8-Recruiting Is Cyclical. Plan 2 classes ahead.

#9-Do Not Negative Recruit.

#10-Be Gracious in Defeat.

Recruiting is not rocket science. Work hard. Work efficient. You may  not always get what you want, but you will get what you need.
