How To Get Recruited For Football

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

You need to gain the support from your coaching staff, so that they allow you to 1, use the film they get from games to create your own film, 2, so whenever coaches do start to call about you, they have nothing bad to say so the coaches calling will have no reason not to give you a look.

Step 2

Play hard on every play. The harder you go every play, the more options you will have when it comes time to make that highlight tape, so coaches see you at nothing but your best.

Step 3

Fill out the recruitment form. Many states require you to fill out a form, to allow coaches to even begin to attempt to talk to you. This form has your basic info, height, weight, position, bench, squat, 40 time.

Step 4

Understand the rules of being recruited. There are alot of things you can, and cannot do when it comes to being recruited, and can ruin you chance of going anywhere.

Step 5

Once your season is over, and you are out on websites like Hudl, many smaller schools in states, will look up anyone within their own state, and give them a call reguardless of talent level, many smaller schools need numbers of players, and the more players they have the more successful their team can be,

Step 6

Meet with coaches, visit campuses, meet current players.

Step 7

Never, ever, ever, go to a school soley based on their football program. You should be able to enjoy where you live during the entire year, and be able to study what you need to take you to where you want to go with your life.

Step 8

Make a choice

Step 9

A majority of time, in order to get recruited out of high school, you just need to put your name out there.

When did you first do this & how did you get started?

Before the start of my senior football season, our coach approached a group of the better players on the team. He discussed, that all of the film from each game would be put online to the website, and we could use anything from there to create our own highlight tape to send to schools.
