Attributes. What are attributes? There are many ways to use the word, this episode, Episode 248, uses the Oxford Dictionary definition: a quality or feature regarded as a characteristic or inherent part of some or something. So you are going to use your attributes and achievements to brag on yourself to college coaches. This is an awkward part of the recruiting process, but telling coaches about yourself honestly is how they get to know you and to consider you over other recruits.
Hear the Why? How? and What? of using your attributes. This episode walks you through How to write out your attributes, Why your attributes are important and What you do with all you attributes. Let's get after it!

Last week on Episode 241 I asked you and I talked about, Would you be ready if a college coach called you today? I hope you had a chance to listen to Epi 241. From that podcast it brought up the question of What would you ask when you talk with a coach? What specific questions should you ask? So, this week's topic covers many specific questions that you can add to your toolbox to be ready and more comfortable to talk with a college coach either face to face or on the phone. This is a task that the student-athlete has to take on. The student-athlete needs to read these questions, practice them in the mirror, in the car, and say them out loud to themselves and to their parents. The student-athlete must write these questions down or type them and have the questions on paper or on their phone. Have the questions easy to get to when a phone call comes. In this episode I talk about recording the coach's answers to these questions by taking notes and immediately add the notes to your communication tracking chart on paper, on a spreadsheet or in the Athletic Scholarship 24-Month Recruiting Planner and Journal. Click below to get more information on this book.
This episode ends the series of 17 questions that have been asked by student-athletes and parents. These questions are taken from the Recruit-Me 3.0 Athletic Scholarship System, click below for more information on the 3.0 System. The Recruit-Me 3.0 System is normally only $127, saving you hundreds, even thousands of dollars over a recruiting service. I have a new End of School Special price of $99 good through May 31, 2021. Take advantage of this discount to get the summer off to a great start and take advantage of coaches getting more active after COVID stopped visits and communications.
Will you be ready when a college coach calls? Episode 241 ask, If a college coach called you today, would you be ready? What would you do?
As a parent or student-athlete, you do not want to do all the work to get contacted and then not to be prepared to actually act on the contact. So if you have made your list of schools, made you videos, been to a showcase or ID camp, done you work on the field or the court or the pool or the mat, you do not want to stall the process because you are not prepared to act on the contact.
Hear how Sutton, my youngest son, reacted and responded when he got his 1st coach contact. Also, hear how a teammate was preparing for his junior year of high school by getting ready to send his information to coaches, but got pleasantly surprised by the level and number of coaches' contacts he received after a showcase.
Are you ready?!

His resume runs from a high school in Tulsa, OK to becoming the head coach at Oral Roberts University, Missouri State University and Southern Illinois University and being on the basketball staff at Kansas University and currently at Oklahoma State University.

Episode 238 is Part 2 of 2 to An Interview with Glenn Quick. Glenn is an Assistant Athletics Director and Academic and Career Counselor for Kansas University in Lawrence, Kansas. In Episode 237, Part 1 of the interview, Glenn gives us his background, what academic counselors do for an athletic program and how his professional life was changed as he attended college.
This episode, Episode 238, covers a large amount of helpful information that will help you decide on a college and help to prepare you for college while you are still in high school and how not to get "Senioritis" in high school. He explains how an academic advisor helps a new college student-athlete in helping with choices of classes, balancing the athletic vs academic schedule and getting the student-athlete on track toward graduation. The Academic Advisor helps to balance classes, practice, games, training and travel. In this episode we get into some differences between high school and college.
Glenn also dials in on a feature many universities have and that is Career Counseling. See some advantages a school can provide to a student-athlete with this department of their athletic program.
Thank you to Glenn Quick for his time and valuable information. If anyone has any questions for Glenn, then email me at Brent@Recruit-Me.com.
The end of this episode answers a question from the Q & A section of the Recruit-Me 3.0 Athletic Scholarship System. Get the answer to this question from a parent. Question: Should we continue to send updates information to the entire list of schools that we have sent to or only those who have replied to us?
This is Part 1 of an Interview with Glenn Quick. Glenn is the Assistant Athletics Directory and an Academic and Career Counselor at Kansas University in Lawrence, Kansas. In this episode we will find out what academic counselors do in general and how Glenn found his way into this area of athletic academic and career counseling. Hearing how, like many college students, your professional career may change as you take college courses and as you meet people throughout your college time. This is a good lesson and an informational nugget that we get out of this interview.
I met Glenn in college at Missouri State back in the late 1980s. I lost track of Glenn until we saw each other at the Missouri Valley Conference basketball tournament in St Louis in the mid 2000s. We found out that our boys were the same age and that we both coached competitive baseball teams. From there, we stayed in contact. Glenn’s team came to Ozark to play in a wood bat tournament I put on and we saw each other and each other’s boys play throughout high school and summer ball. Parker attended a Kansas baseball camp the summer after Parker’s sophomore year.
In this Part 1 of the interview, we, like I said earlier, find out what an academic counselor does on a college campus, when athletes meet with their academic counselors and in general how many times they meet a week.
If you know anything about the Real Estate business, then you know the most important thing is location, location, location. Well, in the recruiting process location is important, but not the most important item. It is many times not thought about as student-athletes and families look at and decide on a school. The location of a college can positively or adversely affect a player's experience. Being minutes from home, or 5 hours away or 15 hours away, are discussions a family needs to have throughout the recruiting process. Relevant discussions and good discussions come from research.
This episode, Episode 236, tells you about the many questions you need to consider about location. Our family, Parker, Sutton, Lori and I, all have examples of why location helped to make our college decisions or are going to help make a decision, in Sutton's case. Lori, my wife, attended the University of Kentucky, and she knew she wanted to be away from home, but close enough to drive back home, a 4 hour drive. She also had family very close to campus to help when she needed to be off campus, but not go home. In this episode you hear how I considered the location in my college decision and how Parker's plan changed during his recruitment and how, again, Sutton is making his parameters known and how he is applying them to his school list.
Location will affect not only travel, but shopping, eating, entertainment and even down to laundry. So let's get into location, location, location!
Episode 235 is called 3 Ways to Dig Into Recruiting Research. The 3 ways covered are a deep dive into researching a team's or school's schedule, a team's roster and the team's coaches. I will tell you how to do the research and why these 3 research items are important in your recruiting quest.
I will walk you through a team's schedule and help you mine valuable information nuggets that will not only help you down the road, but help you now to build a list of schools to contact. A team's conference and non-conference foes on the schedule gives you both team travel information and more school information on schools you may have never considered. The travel opportunities were a part of Parker's decision to go to Northwestern University.
The team's roster is a great way to analyze how you might fit into a program's plans. See how the roster player's grade, size, stats and previous schools attended can paint a picture of your possible future at that school.
Getting information on the coaches will help you to formulate an introductory email that will get you attention from that school.
So learn how researching a team's schedule, roster and coaches' links can move you closer to the right college for you. Listen at the end of the podcast as I continue the Q&A section, Appendix C of the Recruit-Me 3.0 Athletic Scholarship System.

Episode 234: Recruiting Can Be Like a Car's Gas Gauge was inspired by a 2+ hour drive to Columbia, Missouri I got to make to watch Sutton, my youngest son, play a high school basketball game. I've always noticed how the gas needle on the gas gauge seems to stick to the full mark on the dash, but then it drops quicker than you expect when it get to one-quarter of a tank. This is a great simulation of the recruiting process. Listen to this episode to walk, I mean drive, through the tank of gas and the student-athletes recruiting journey. Plus, you get an idea of what the drive from Ozark, Missouri to Columbia, Missouri is like. Exciting! : )
