I want you to understand that recruiting is not all about going to the biggest school or power conference school. If you can play and if you’re good enough, there is a place out there for you.

It’s all about finding the school that fits your athletic ability, academic ability, and fits you socially.

And if you only lock-in to only BIG D1 schools, you will miss a big opportunity to connect with other schools that are willing to give you money and may be a better fit for you.

College Football Recruiting Tips

We asked Jamin Elliott to give us his top tips all athletes must know if they want to start getting recruited for football.

Jamin says, “Evaluation and watch lists start early! Do not wait until your junior year to get serious. The later you wait, the lower on the coaches prospect list you are and the less likely you will receive an offer.

Also, Jamin says “it is important to immediately branch within the NCAA that certifies whether you are academically eligible to compete in NCAA D1 or D2 athletics”.

You can do that here:

Finally, Jamin said, “Remember, it is NOT your coaches responsibility to get you to college. It’s yours. There’s nothing in his job description that says he has to help you get to college.”
