Who’s Sending Me Brochures?
High school student athletes receive general admissions information and brochures from colleges. Students have a hard time determining what is generated by a college coach and what is generated by an admissions college simply because he is a good student. Admissions material is one of the few things Division I and II college coaches can send to freshmen or sophomores. College coaches often give the names of prospective student-athletes to the admissions office, so the prospects will receive general information about the college. The coach waits to see whether the student-athletes responds to the mailing, which indicates the student-athletes level of interest.
