Don’t Believe The Hype
Say Yes To Woods Recruiting
There is a ton of misinformation out there about the college recruiting process so be careful. Don’t believe the hype! There’s a lot of information available on social media websites, message boards, blogs, and websites about recruiting. You’re going to hear stories about student-athletes making commitments to college programs.
Don’t believe the hype. You’re going to hear stories about student-athletes being recruited by particular programs, etc. A lot of the information is false and most of it is not true. Don’t believe the hype. The recruiting process is a jungle of misinformation, half-truths, and false stories about student-athletes all the time. It is really the hype machine that runs and controls most of what’s going on in recruiting.
Just because you hear stories about a student-athlete being recruited by certain programs or making commitments to other programs it’s not necessarily true.
You may even hear stories about how the recruiting process works when in reality many of the rules about recruiting are virtually the same rules from decades ago. Parents receive unverified information from other parents about recruiting that’s not true. Be careful! Don’t believe the hype.
A lot of student-athletes base their recruitment on how they competed during the summer months. You may be competing against the student-athlete who is one of the best players in the country and you’re holding your own, but does that necessarily mean you’re going to get that same recognition? No. But it doesn’t mean you’re going to start to be recruited by DI college programs.
Every student-athlete is different. Every situation is different. Every high school is different. Every high school coach is different. Every club team is different. Everything changes from one summer to the next. It would be reckless for student-athletes to compare themselves to another student-athlete.
Don’t believe the hype! Stay focused on you!
