Have any of you had DIRECT experience (and success) with getting a child exposure to college coaches? I'm dealing with a few athletes in two different sports (football and volleyball) that show an awful lot of promise, but my experience in the recruiting game is pretty limited... like non-existent. We have all heard about athletes that receive scholarship offers in 7th and 8th grade, so obviously these kids are at least getting on the radar even earlier than that. So I'm clear: I'm not trying to market 8 year olds or anything like that, but I want to make sure these athletes are proactive and don't fall behind the curve. I'm also not looking to put a ton of pressure on them. If it works out, great! If not, I will continue to work with them to make them into good, productive human beings. I've read some stuff, but I'd love to hear about your first hand experiences. Thanks!
