    Getting a letter VS being recuited

    NSR could you touch upon the difference between a student getting a letter from a college and being recuited by that school. I know many students who think because they get a "letter" that school is actively recuiting them

    The NCAA suggests you are not being RECRUITED until you receive a phone call. The mere presence of a letter therefore does NOT mean you are being recruited. Colleges will send literally thousands of letters w/questionnaires. It simply means you have been identified, which is a good thing.

    After the identification phase comes the evaluation phase, when they assess your performance - either by seeing you play in person or on video - relative to others on their potential recruiting list.

    Be happy when you get a letter, but don't be satisifed. And do NOT tell people you are being recruited just because you got a letter. The only thing you are doing is setting yourself up for disappointment.

    this goes for parents as well. Had a player a few years ago who at the end of the season was disappointed because he recieved "letters" from a college in KY and thought it was his high school coach's fault he didn't get a scholarship because he didn't have a 100 yard rushing game
