One of the most impactful things an athlete (and parent) can do is make a personal visit to a college campus.  More questions can get answered by the in-person experience than any other way.

Plus, you'll also make a lasting impression on college coaches.

Of course, the big goal for athletes is to get an invitation for an "official visit."  However, unofficial visits have huge value.  In this episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler explains why. 

But the core of this episode is Jon's insights into five things you should do when making a campus visit.  You have to go with purpose and follow through on that purpose.

Whether you have a visit coming up or you're making plans to do that this spring or summer, make sure you've got these five things on your radar.

What you're feeling right now isn't unusual. 

The recruiting journey is a highly emotional one.  Ups and downs are normal and sometimes the downs seem overwhelming. 

In this episode, hear about one family's story and the variety of emotions they experienced along the way.  Emotions that you've experienced or ones that you will.

This is a real story about a real family.  The story ended well, but the process was long and challenging. 

One thing that recruiting expert Jon Fugler points out is that recruiting is a lot like competing.  You'll feel some of the same emotions.  In fact, maybe all of them. 

Jon also encourages you to write to him and share your experience and ask any questions you have.  We're in this together.
