Reply to "Interesting tidbits from recent recruiting survey"

This "tidbit" is nothing but a marketing strategy from a recruiting services viewpoint (& obviously the OP)...Not objective, so not much real value...Who conducted this "survey" or research? Was it done by a neutral party?   Who, specifically were the respondents? Was it designed for only certain levels of Coaches/recruits? Or is this a "cherry-picked" version? Where's the entire survey?

This info is so generic, it's fodder. Best advise is do your homework. Due diligence...example, back in the day, son was recruited by a couple SEC Schools...Low & behold, a quick check with NCAA showed that one institutions was on  probation...known cheating to keep kids eligible...Another infraction & they could be suspended...

Just ask the recruiting coach or head coach a few important questions...What kind of Academic support? Is there a "proxy test giver" when guys are on the road? 

Be sure your athlete knows what a syllabus is! Be sure he establishes an open line of communication with profs, etc...

Concerning character, these Coaches have "spies in the land", I assure you! Coaches talk! It's a small world.
