Episode 273 is Part 1 of a two part interview with Randy Merryman. Randy is the owner of Marucci Midwest Baseball Organization in Ozark, MO. Randy is also the Dad of a current college baseball player and he is re-starting the Baptist Bible College baseball program as the head coach. So these episodes will give you a great look into 3 different ways the recruiting game is played.
In this episode, Part 1, we start out with advice from the Marucci Midwest organization owner aspect. Subjects like how club or travel organizations can help you get recruited and how the different levels of college sports are a factor. Also, how a college fit is important and how communicating positively can impact your recruitment. Then we start to talk about recruitment as a Dad. Randy talks about how his son found the right college fit, academically, the location and baseball-wise.
Next week's episode has more about being a Dad and then gets into the recruiting aspect of being a college coach. We will cover advice on making a college choice, advice on contacting college coaches and how academics is important. Even though we talk about baseball throughout the interview, this information is great for any sport at any level.
At the end of this episode is a continuation of information from Appendix F of the Recruit-Me 3.0 Athletic Scholarship System. Appendix F is How to Study and Make the Most of Your Time. I started this series back in Episode 265 and today I cover Taking Objective Exams.
