The Ultimate Student-Athlete Guidebook Is Here—Recruiting Realities: Your GPS to the Future

Recruiting Realities: Your GPS to the Future

Jack Renkens, president and founder of Recruiting Realities™, has been touring the country delivering no-nonsense recruiting advice to thousands of high school athletes for more than 20 years. His engaging, informative and motivational talks have inspired many student-athletes and their families to take charge of their recruiting process.

In addition to his speaking engagements, Jack recently published the 2017-18 edition of Recruiting Realities: Your GPS to the Future. It is the go-to guide for all things recruiting for student-athletes, their parents, coaches, and high school counselors.

“You cannot win a game without first knowing its rules. Recruiting is no different–you must know the rules,” says Renkens. “This book is designed for those student-athletes and their families that want to educate themselves and take control of their college recruitment.”

According to Jack, one of the first rules of recruiting is that it’s something you make happen not something that happens to you. “Most everybody just wants to sit down and wait. Wait for what!?,” Renkens asks. “This is all about making opportunities for your student-athlete.”

The world of college recruiting is constantly evolving and the new 2017-18 edition of Recruiting Realities offers totally up-to-date information on everything from the dangers of social media to positive sports parenting insights.

The book also has a section dedicated to the basic recruiting guidelines for everything from men’s baseball to women’s water polo. These guidelines give you a good overview of each sport by position to help you figure out the division level of play that best suits your student-athlete.

There is so much to learn in a short amount of time that it’s great having one comprehensive guide with most everything you need to know at every phase of your college recruitment. In this fast-paced, digital world it’s pleasantly convenient having all of this information printed and at your fingertips without having to search for an article you may have read online or dig through an over-stuffed email inbox on your phone.

NCSA is proud to partner with Jack Renkens’ Recruiting Realities because it was founded to help provide knowledge to parents and athletes so they could make well-informed decisions on where to play sports in college.
