The one assumption Jon makes is that your student-athlete can compete at the next level. He shares exactly what that means. 

If you're looking for one place where you can get the foundational content for your athletic scholarship, it's here in this episode.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned in your recruiting journey so far?  Let our podcast host know at jon@recruit-me.com.

You’ll never be finished learning, even when the process is over.  That’s what recruiting expert Jon Fugler has experienced, and he has been at it for nearly 20 years.

In this episode, Jon shares the seven biggest lessons he has learned over the years. These lessons are shared to expand your knowledge base and help you take short-cuts to an athletic scholarship.  Some lessons are for parents and some for athletes.

Jon’s first recruiting lesson is that “all coaches are different” and you must treat them that way.  The recruit-me way may be steps you follow, but it cannot be viewed as a cookie cutter approach.  Jon shares an example from his sons’ experience with one coach in particular. Knowing this truth will make a huge difference in the way you communicate with coaches and build the recruiting relationship.

Listen to all seven lessons and see which ones you can adapt to your recruiting approach. 

Jon also shares lessons that other families have learned, and you may be able to relate to those.

And Jon now has a new freebie.  It’s the first chapter of his new book The Athletic Scholarship Playbook:  A Complete College Recruiting Roadmap for High School Athletes and Parents. Take the book for a test drive and see if it fits your needs.

Getting a college coach's candid evaluation of your son or daughter's talent is a defining moment in the recruiting process.

And then there's the money issue.

How do you bring up your athlete's chances of a scholarship and get an honest response?  In fact, how do you get honest responses about other things you have on your mind?

In this episode, author and recruiting expert Jon Fugler gives insight on the right time to ask coaches about money and scholarships.  He also shares three things that will help you get honest feedback an information from college coaches.

Even though you want honest information, in some ways there's a fear in receiving it.  Fear of rejection, financial disappointment, ticking off the coach and a number of other fears.  Jon helps you get over those fears.

This episode is brought to you by Jon's new book, The Athletic Scholarship Playbook, the most highly rated book on recruiting and athletic scholarships on Amazon.
