Know the process and the myths:

  • Match student’s academic skills, athletic skills and desire to

play with the appropriate college.

  • Understand the goal of the ‘free ride.’
  • Explain to the student athlete that meeting NCAA

requirements does not guarantee admission into a college.

The student must still meet the college’s admission

requirements.

  • Clarify that signing a letter of intent does not guarantee

admission to a college. The student must still meet the

college’s admission requirements.
