"Every year, we start with 15,000 to 20,000 student athletes nationwide who fit our profile for football. On any given day, I get between 10 and 15 emails from prospects. If they're from my area, I try to watch their video immediately, and to look at their profile. The more information and contact with the coaches, the better. You can never get too much information out there about yourself. All things being equal—academics, skill set, position—if we know a recruit is extremely interested in Dartmouth, then that would definitely increase his stock."
- Christopher Wilkerson, Associate Head Coach, Football, Dartmouth College
"The truth is, there are a lot of books and websites on the market today that are designed to help aspiring HS student-athletes market themselves to college coaches. What Binder does in his readable book is to cut through a great deal of the bureaucracy of the college recruiting system and presents the basics that any athlete and their parents would need to know.
There are several important nuggets in the book, but one of the best is a chart which details just how meaningful it is to receive a questionnaire from a college coach, or a follow-up email, or a personal phone call from a coach, or to be asked to visit the campus, or to be told you’re an official recruit by the admissions office. The analysis is worth knowing.
As Binder points out, the sooner you know just how serious that college coach is about bringing you on board, the better you’ll know where you stand. True, some of the advice in the book is a bit simplistic (e.g. play on a travel team, sign up for showcases in order to be seen), but overall, for the HS athlete who is just beginning to think about playing sports in college, this is a good primer with which to start."
