Episode 356 is an Interview with Coach Barry Hinson from Oklahoma State University.  Coach Hinson has been on The Athletic Scholarship Podcast as a guest before, Episodes 239 and 240 as he was on the Oklahoma State Cowboys Men's Basketball staff.  Recently, Coach Hinson moved to be the Associate Athletic Director and OSU's 1st Director of NIL; Name, Image and Likeness.  Barry helps us learn about how NIL has entered the scene in college sports.  He tells how as he learned about NIL it pushed him to start helping the over 500 Cowboy student-athletes on campus. Coach Hinson talks about the big money deals you hear about in the media, but he also highlight how any student-athlete, in college and in high school, can work to make money as they play their sport.  

This is episode is a little longer than the normail 15 minutes The Athletic Scholarship Podcast normally covers, but Barry's information about NIL, recruiting and general sports is worth the extra 10 minutes.

Episode 355 of The Athletic Scholarship Podcast is A Review of the Interview with a College Basketball Coach; Randy Stange.  This episode pulls out a few key points of the interview with Coach Randy Stange.  Coach Stange is the Head Basketball Coach at Sterling College in Sterling, KS.  Sterling College is an NAIA level basketball team and Coach Stange just finished his 1st year as the Head Coach.  Coach Stange did an interview for The Athletic Scholarship Podcast, Episodes 352 & 353 and we covered many subjects including Coach Stange's playing and coaching past.  In this week's episode I grab some key points that we were not able to expand on during the interview.  I'll hit on Randy's learning experience from not playing much his freshman year of Junior College and ask you how you will handle that situation.  A point I bring up is how research about the colleges you contact and finally make a decision on needs to be researched and compared to your parameters list of wants and needs for a athletic and academic experience.  I asked Coach Stange how a player wanting to be recruited would get his attention and Coach Stange gives you insight to how he looks at a player's video and how a high school coach's and a club coach's style and input lends weight to a recruit.  Listen in to gain recruiting advice for not only basketball, but for any sport you are interested in.

This episode, Episode 354 of The Athletic Scholarship Podcast, dives into how AI, Artificial Intelligence can help you in your recruitment.  I downloaded an inexpensive AI App and asked, What is the best way to get recruited by any college coach?  It was interesting to watch the AI App spit out it's steps to effectively get recruited.  Well, the steps were not Ask AI's orginal thoughts.  The steps to get recruited were gathered as the Ask AI App scanned the internet and accumulated the best practices from 1000s of sites.  Since Recruit Me and The Athletic Scholarship Podcast are 2 the longest running recruiting education resources out there, I was proud to know that Ask AI mirrored the Recruit Me 7 Steps to an Athletic Scholarship very closely. 

Listen in to hear the steps that Ask AI, Recruit Me, Keep Playing Baseball, NCSA and IvyWise all give you as free and inexpensive resources for recruiting.

Inspiration can come from anywhere.  I saw a tweet that had a clip of an interview with the host, Ed Mylett, interviewing Sean Casey, a former MLB player and now a host on the MLB Network.  You can find The Ed Mylett Show on your favorite podcast app or on YouTube.  The 1 hour and 6 minute interview is named How to Overcome Rejection & Failure and WIN! w/ Sean Casey & Ed Mylett.  What attracted me to this interview was that @TJHannam10 highlighted a line from the interview that stated "I want to play college baseball, Dad", "They're not coming, Sean..GO ON OFFENSE".  The mention of wanting to play college baseball caught my recruiting eye and when I listened to the first 20-30 minutes of the interview it told a very relatable story for many, many student-athletes in not only baseball, but in any recruiting situation.  This interview gives you, not only recruiting lessons, but life lessons and inspiration.  The shownotes below have a link to the Ed Mylett/Sean Casey interview.  Also, click on the FREE Recruiting Power Pack link and the Recruit-Me.com link to get more free and inexpensive recruiting resources.

The Transfer Portal has been a big change in college athletics.  In the past, a college student-athlete wanted to move from 1 four-year NCAA college to another four-year NCAA college, then that student-athlete would have to sit out 1 year of competitive play before they were eligible to play for the new college.  Now, under a few rules, a college student-athlete can transfer 1 time without having to sit out a year.  On this episode, Episode 348 of The Athletic Scholarship Podcast, you get the history of the Transfer Portal, how it works today, how it effects high school, junior college and even other college student-athletes in the recruiting world.

Episode 347 is sourced by a social media question I found on Facebook.  A parent asked a group "How active is your high school coach in your recruiting?"  I go over both the high school coach and a club coach's role in your recruitment and what to expect if you get a positive or negative reaction in their involvement.  This episode discusses how important a coaches role can be and how you can do it yourself with the help of your recruiting team.  Listen to Episode 346 about building a recruiting team.

Welcome to The Athletic Scholarship Podcast.  One of the goals of Recruit Me is to provide as many free and inexpensive recruiting resources to you, the student-athlete or the parents.  Recruit Me wants to save you not only money, but also reduce the time spend and the anxiety you feel.  One of the opportunities I have as a recruiting educator is that I do research to find helpful tools for you.  I can across the Baseball Bluebook on social media and it caught my eye when I saw that the owner is from the Springfield, MO area, which is where I am located.  As I looked through the Baseball Bluebook's social media I found the website, BaseballBluebook.com and there new app.  The new app for Baseball Bluebook is a great, free resource for baseball recruits.  The app can help in any sport though, as it can help you to find colleges by city, by state and by level of play.  When you find a college you can get a link to the school's athletic website, thus helping on baseball or any other sport the college has.

Welcome back to the series of direct looks at the NCAA, NAIA & NJCAA websites.  After the last 2 episodes broke from this series with a year in review episode and a re-introduction to Recruit-Me episode, today's episode is the 8th in the website series.  Today we dive into the NLI or National Letter of Intent.  The NCAA.org covers the optional, but binding National Letter of Intent.  Because the NLI has requirement for athletic financial aid it is only functional for the NCAA Division I and II levels.  The NCAA Division III offers a Celebratory Signing Form to allow Division III commits to have a non-binding option to sign at a signing ceremony. The NAIA division has a non-binding Letter of Intent and the JUCO level has a Letter of Intent or LOI that is binding at the NJCAA level, but not the NCAA or NAIA level. 

All of this information comes straight from the NCAA.org, NAIA.org and the NJCAA.org websites.  The purpose of this 'looks inside websites' series is to save you time, money and stress by taking you directly to specific topics on each website.  These websites are great, free recruiting resources for you, but you can waste a lot time by not staying focused.

Here we are in the 7th episode in a series called An Inside Look at the NCAA, NAIA & NJCAA Websites.  Today we get a look at the new Name, Image & Likeness Policy, or NIL.  The NCAA.org, NAIA.org and NJCAA.org each have sections and webpages that introduce and cover the new NIL Policy.  This episode guides you directly to each of the websites pages to help save you time in learning about the NIL Policy.  The new NIL Policy may or may not effect your recruitment.  Doing some research on it can help you decide on how to proceed with this subject for recruiting.  The NCAA.org site says student-athletes can now take advantage of opportunities using your name, image & likeness.  You can work with businesses across industries and staff on your campus as your NIL opportunities are exploring unchartered territory in college sports.  This is an important change that imporves the student-athletes experience.  

The first 6 episodes in this series gave you a look into Eligibility Centers, a direct link to Academic Requirements, the Guides for the College-Bound Student-Athlete, the fourth in the series gives you Questions to Ask, the next episode takes you to FAQs and last week's covered What to Know Before You Go.  Go to Recruit-Me.com to hear these past episodes.
