Tip.....Grab a tablet and read this NCAA document cover to cover while you are watching the start of the MLB season with your favorite team on your favorite large screen TV. Everything you need to know to get started is here. http://www.ncaapublications.co...downloads/CBSA18.pdf
This college bound parent 101 document will answer your questions from an NCAA perspective including all the lingo and jargon on page 30. There is a lot to know and this is an easy read. The tough stuff will come later as you really begin to understand this process.
As always, JMO. Good luck!
