Signing Period is just around the corner as prospects visit campuses to make their leap of faith on the perfect choice for them.
What's interesting about the recruiting process is how much the conversation changes as the final decision gets closer. The initial calls deal with size of school, location, major interest, success of the team, which are all important pieces and help narrow the list of what schools to visit in person.
So what is the official visit about then? It's all about the relationships! How does the prospect feel about the coaches, the players, and the community?
Ask yourself who you want to spend 20 hours a week with and that's your answer.
I made my decision within the first 30 minutes of my official visit. I didn't tell anyone that soon but I knew. I knew that if I was happy, enjoyed the people I played with and for, then I would work that much harder every single day.
I believe you can have great team chemistry and be extremely successful. Neither one should suffer because of the other.
At the end of the day, if the journey isn't valued then the result doesn't matter.
