What Types of Questions Can I Ask?

When a young player has their first sit down meeting with a college coach during the recruitment phase, a sixteen year old can often be at a loss for words when trying to demonstrate both maturity of thought, but also collecting valuable information that can aid in the college selection process.

We would like to offer a few possible questions that a young recruit might use to not only uncover more about the inner workings of a collegiate program, but also to establish that student-athlete's broader role on campus. If there are other specific questions that you believe would be useful, feel free to contribute that content.
  • Where do you think I fit into your recruiting class?
  • What is the best way to get evaluated by your staff?
  • How would you describe your coaching style?
  • Do the players typically live together, or in the same area?
  • Is there any type of support from admissions that could be offered to a player in my academic situation?
  • Given my situation, are there any opportunities for financial aid?
  • What does the typical day of a player on your team look like?
  • When does the team train and when do most of the players have classes?
