    You need to register with the sites to get your name on the list. Like scout.com and others. If your good enough they will find you,without being on any list.

    Remeber the thread, D1 recruits. D1 is A and AA. Notice that the AA has D1 in front of it. Keith Welch of Carroll has offers from Wofford and Furman both D1aa/FCS schools. Also has interest from FBS thats D1A Troy and Ball State. Letters, and going to games and camps do not mean squat. When you get phone calls and e-mails after September 1 senior year talking official visits thats when you can mention schools. If it was about mail, then he would be going to Purdue. I am sure there are others out there who know what I am talking about. Best of luck to all recruits! Hope you Northern Ky. boys do not mind us posting on this thread.

    Go to www.ncsasports.org and watch Jack Renkens' videos. You will have to go to College Recruiting. He keeps it real. If your getting letter from every college in the US, that means your on a mailing list. My son has got a letter from every college in the country, but phone calls from some of the college coaches. But how much weight does that hold? Not sure. But I guess we'll know in the next few months.

    So, has anyone checked out the site above and what do you think? Does Jack speak the truth?

    Also with all the talk about kids being D1, do you think the kids care about that or is the parents ego talking? How many kids go from D1 to the pros? Without the ego, I know my kids limitations, I know he could play D1. But, I recommend he go to a small college and get the good education and he will continue his student athletic career. For most kids, your not going to college to play sports, your there for the education and not the ego of saying "I played D1 football".

    Having gone through the recruiting process with my son and several of his friends, it is my opinion that there are a number of factors that dictate the successful recruiting of an athlete.

    1. Is the college in need of an athlete for a particular position?
    2. What is the evaluation of the college coach of the potential athlete under his training?
    3. What is the distance from the college to the potential recruit’s home?
    4. What are the potential athlete’s vital statistics?

    This is just a partial list of the factors.

    Remember that there is a pecking order in recruiting: Division IA, Division IAA, Division II and then Division III. All of it has to do with the resources the college has to commit to recruiting. Remember letters are not recruiting. Calls from the coaches, invitation to visit the college, weekly update calls from the coaches, and a letter with an offer and documents to sign this is recruiting.

    If you are in the process, then enjoy it because once your child has signed things are different.

    I have been to the site and presently have a child enrolled with the program. With him being signed up we still spend at a minimum of 2 and up to 12 hours per week dedicated to the process. If he signs with one of his top three schools the money was well spent. Other than that up until this point, I should have kept my money. You can make the contacts yourself finding the staff directories on the schools athletic sites and contacting the position coach or call and find out which coach recruits the state you are from.

    This is exactly what I did. My son drafted a letter telling the coaches who he is, stats, height, weight, GPA, ACT, school, and 40. He has received letters back stating that they are impressed with his stats and are interested. He also received some saying they aren't looking to recruit his position. So I am confident that he will land at a good college to continue his student athletic career. Honestly, he perfers the D3 school over the D1/D1A/D1AA. He has visited a few big schools, received call from the D1 coaches, but likes the family type atmosphere of the small school.

    Oldiges committed with College of the Holy Cross this weekend. My son was on an official visit with him. They do not offer traditional scholarships. I would suggest anyone interested in the topic to visit the Patriot League Website. Holy Cross is one of the premier undergraduate institutions in America, however. Congrats to Eric, met him on this visit and he is a great kid! Holy Cross is Div. 1 AA now known as Div. 1 FCS

    Is that supposed to mean Division I schools provide an inferior education?

    I'm not saying that at all. Is what I'm trying to stress is that parents/players like the hipe or the recognition that they play D1 football. Not necessarly the best fit for the kid.
    On some of these threads kids are not getting atheletic scholarships but "walk on" or "Preferred walk on". My son was offered a "preferred walk on" spot for Dayton and Duke. The coach explained the differences. A walk on shows up to practice about 2 weeks after the rest of the team and has to earn a spot. A preferred walk on shows up to practice the same time as the rest of the team, does not have to have to try out, and does not receive a scholarship. Can earn a scholly the next yrs. after. Basicly he was real and also mentioned that a preferred walk on is a gratitude gesture saying the kids has talent, could make it, but we'll see. If anyone has more info on this or if I'm wrong, please correct me.

    Dayton does not give out athletic scholly's, so really everyone's a walkon. You're pretty close with the rest of it. It may be two years though before a scholarship is offered, and that is not guaranteed.
