Summer College Recruiting Checklist for Student-Athletes

Impact of Coronavirus on College Recruiting: The NCAA recruiting rules are now different for each division level. NCAA D1 will return to normal recruiting rules on June 1, 2021. As of September 1, 2020, NCAA D2 and D3 have already resumed the regular recruiting rules. Stay on top of the latest news involving the extra year of eligibility for college athletes and how it impacts recruiting. See our full coronavirus resources section.

School may be out for summer, but student-athletes shouldn’t take a vacation from the athletic recruiting process altogether. In fact, the summer months provide a great opportunity for student-athletes to focus their attention on developing athletically and managing their recruiting, even if it is just for a few hours a week.

This summer is going to look a little different for incoming high-school student-athletes. With many club teams and recruiting events like camps, combines, tournaments and showcases suspending or postponing their schedules, it can be more difficult than ever to stay on track and keep busy over the next few months. That’s why we created a guide that lets you know exactly what steps to take to maximize your recruiting opportunities before school starts again in the fall—and don’t worry, we built in some time to relax and recharge, too!

No matter where you are in the process—gearing up for your first year of high school, getting ready to tackle your senior year, or somewhere in between—check out our summer recruiting checklists below to make the most of your summer.
