Many high school athletes dream of playing college sports. While student athletes are usually dazzled by stories of individual and team triumphs, the harder truths of transfers, disillusionments, and injuries often go untold.

The Student-Athlete's College Recruitment Guide explores this behind-the-scenes information, giving students and their families an insightful look at the world of college athletics. This in-depth resource examines the many aspects of the college athletic recruitment process, including what to look for when choosing a program to best fit a student's abilities and needs, both athletically and academically. Expert interviews with top coaches reveal what they believe student athletes need to "make it" in this ultracompetitive realm and how to avoid the common pitfalls that can hinder a student athlete's performance. This new book is a valuable tool for high school students navigating the recruiting process.

Chapters include:

  • Why Play?
  • Considering a University
  • Getting Seen
  • Scholarship Negotiation
  • Unsafe Practices
  • Gender Issues
  • Racial Issues.

About the Author:

Patrick Donnelly received an MFA from Warren Wilson College, where he was a recipient of the Larry Levis Scholarship.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 9 Up—This three-part guidebook was written to help parents, students, and high school coaches negotiate the obstacle course that the collegiate sports recruiting process can be. It discusses what questions should be asked of recruiters and how to ask them. It also covers the various aspects of recruitment, how college sports are organized, and a bird's-eye view of the process as seen by respected coaches. A proposed bill of rights for student athletes and a discussion of college athletics as big business are appended. While the prospective readership for this book is limited, it is a worthwhile addition to most libraries serving teens.—Carol Jones Collins, Hanover Park High School, East Hanover, NJ
