We wanted to share this great article regarding the recruiting process…
Hey, I can go back to life – my son, Elijah, committed to his school (Pitt) and so the recruiting process is over and everything else can resume and maybe I’ll get some sleep now…….
Now that the process is over, I’ll share some thoughts/advice for parents who have a child who may be recruited some day or is in the process of getting recruited. It is the kids day, the kids decision and all of that stuff — but as a parent, there is a lot of stress and anxiety involved so when it finally comes to decision day, it is a huge weight off of your shoulders as well.
It is not an easy process, it can be a disappointing process at times, it can be an exciting process at times but I think the key to make it manageable is simple – set goals, ask questions and remain focused on the ultimate prize.
So how do you do that? Well it sounds easier than it actually is but here are some of my observations based on my experience – both with Elijah and in many years of covering recruiting — and as always, these things and $3 will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks…..cont’d
