    Good question. The NCAA says you are being recruited when you receive a phone call. That's a good standard to go by. In other words, letters and questionnaires are a good start, but they do NOT mean you are being recruited. Some colleges send out thousands of questionnaires. How many times have you heard a proud parent say his/her son/duaghter is being recruited by a certain school because they got a letter. NO!

    Don't get me wrong, letters and questionnaires are absolutely great, but make sure you follow up on them, make sure you plan visits, make sure you stay proactive. Typically, a hand-written note is better than a form letter. And invites to games are better yet. But still, that invite could apply to 25 kids, all for the same game.

    Look at it this way...letters lead to potential phone calls which lead to visits which lead to offers. So...would you rather have 50 letters or 5?

    I have been here ba40...just waiting for something to respond to. It's sometimes frustrating when people don't ask questions.

    Track down my son at UK and smack him around a little, will ya? He needs it!
