We received a great question from a listener in our "One Question Series."  It's about video and what content to include so the coach will watch the whole thing.

Recruiting expert Jon Fugler answers the question and gives details on an athlete's video.  He'll explain what to include, what order and especially what a college coach is looking for.

Find out, also, how you can have a free copy of Jon's audio book.

It's one of the most dangerous things an athlete can do and it could kill your scholarship chances.  Many athletes today are accepting verbal offers, even as early as 8th grade. 

This week's question is from a parent whose son has received a verbal offer, and she has some good questions about that offer.

Recruiting expert Jon Fugler tells a heartbreaking story and then explains clearly why her son or any athlete should never accept a verbal offer.  There are several reasons, and Jon covers them.

Jon also explains how you can get the information you need from a coach to find out early on what he or she might be offering down the road.

In a day when we want to sew up the scholarship offer as early as possible, there is a big temptation to accept a verbal offer.

Almost every talented high school athlete has a choice to make at least once.  And this choice is a family decision:

Which competitive team should I play for? 

The question comes up when you're sought after by more than one club or competitive team coach. 

And that leads a family to wonder if playing on the better team --or even a competitive or club team -- increases scholarship chances.  On this week's episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler answers a father's question about his daughter's situation.  She has been asked by two teams to play with them. 

What are the recruiting implications?  Jon addresses this question and brings up a couple other points, too.

This week's question comes from Kayleigh, an athlete who expresses what other athletes are thinking, "How can I know when a coach is really interested in me?" 

Recruiting shouldn't be a guessing game, but it often is.  The key is getting clarity all the way through the process with as many coaches as possible.  That's the way it should be in a perfect world, but the reality is that it is not.

In this episode, recruiting expert Jon Fugler takes this question apart and delivers and answer that goes beneath the surface. He reads into the question to what the athlete really might be asking.

Get clarification in your recruiting game plan as you listen.
