Re read and still disagree. College Coach MUST be contacted. Ask around and coaches will tell you the same, must fill out recruiting questionnaire. Must follow up with emails, they do not know who you are. Unless the coach is widely respected and has the University coach on speed dial its simply not enough.
well....speed dial is what the coach used actually. As far as I know, he knows most major D1 coaches on first name basis.
If the kid is good, the process WILL take care of itself.
