So You Want To Play In College?

Below is some great information to get you started on the College Recruting Process:






If you are interested in playing in the NCAA at the DI or DII level, you should plan to be cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse to assist with recruiting, often this is the first question a college coach will ask 'Is this student Eligible? Registration should be done at the start of your junior year. Please note the NCAA now refers to the Clearinghouse as the 'Eligibility Center.' These are the exact same organizations.


Why register with the NCAA Clearinghouse?

  • If you are going to play NCAA DI or DII athletics you have to be cleared by the NCAA

  • You can’t receive official scholarship offers until you have registered

  • You can’t go on official visits unless you have registered

  • Cost ~$65.00 (varies year to year)



Below are some additional useful recruiting links:
