The real scoop for students interested in playing college sports.

Many high school athletes dream of playing college sports. While student athletes are usually dazzled by stories of individual and team triumphs, the harder truths of transfers, disillusionments, and injuries often go untold.

The Student-Athlete's College Recruitment Guide explores this behind-the-scenes information, giving students and their families an insightful look at the world of college athletics. This in-depth resource examines the many aspects of the college athletic recruitment process, including what to look for when choosing a program to best fit a student's abilities and needs, both athletically and academically. Expert interviews with top coaches reveal what they believe student athletes need to "make it" in this ultracompetitive realm and how to avoid the common pitfalls that can hinder a student athlete's performance. This new book is a valuable tool for high school students navigating the recruiting process.

Chapters include:
  • Why Play?
  • Considering a University
  • Getting Seen
  • Scholarship Negotiation
  • Unsafe Practices
  • Gender Issues
  • Racial Issues.
