I am working on this article currently and will post more tomorrow. 4/19/12 (Texaslady12 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 19:43, 19 April 2012 (UTC).

This article needs references, historical context and a better explanation on come of the rules. The NCAA has ample information regarding this that could be included. (Akdash09 (talk) 17:00, 9 February 2012 (UTC))

It would be nice if the article talked more in depth about the recruiting process. Things like calls, official visits, face to face talks with coaches etc. It would also make the article more comprehensive if recruiting for other sports was talked about. Even if the process is largely the same across all sports, it still doesn't make sense to highlight two sports and completely leave out the others. Some more info about how student athletes can get their name out their to increase their chances at being recruited wouldn't go amiss. JB2794 (talk) 22:45, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

This article needs to discuss the recruiting process in more detail and shouldn't specifically mention 2 sports while leaving out the others. This article also assumes that if there is no scholarship offered in the recruiting process that it is a smaller school. I think that there can be a section added about how scholarships come into play when committing to a school. I think that this article can look at the recruiting process in 2 ways: through the student-athlete, and through college coaches. There are different processes and I think they are both important to highlight in order to understand the other. Jeterfan252 (talk) 06:56, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Rename or expand?Edit

This article only covers recruiting in the US so far. It might be a good idea to move it to something like Sports recruiting in the United States. Captain Conundrum (talk) 11:57, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

It might also be worth including the process for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The recruiting process at the NAIA level is much more relaxed than the NCAA and provides different opportunities. MaxMurph1 (talk) 14:57, 21 March 2019 (UTC)MaxMurph1

Not a How ToEdit

A reminder that Wikipedia is not a How To guide. There is some interesting information in the current How to Prepare as a Student-Athlete section, but it really should be rewritten in an encyclopedic tone. Hoof Hearted (talk) 20:38, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
