    what age can kids be recruited?

    my cousin is a QB in Marietta, Georgia and it sounds like he could be a legit Div I player. He's a Jr. in high school right now.

    so i was curious at what age can schools start to talk to recruits? Also, when do players get added to the Rivals and Scout databases, after their Jr year?

    anyway, i have no clue how good he is because i'm in IA and he's in GA, but it sounds like he could be good. He's 6'3" and like 215lbs or so. His fav. school is FSU because of his crazy mother. But most of his family is here in Iowa and said he'd be interested in all 3 state schools.

    Normal starts during their junior year.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    Maybe he could send in a highlight tape to either Rivals or Scout and or attend their camps or others.

    I can't put enough of those with as hilarious as that is.


    I believe you can be contacted by coaches on a regular basis starting your junior year. There are goofy rules. I know my fall semester of my junior year of high school is when coaches started talking to me.

    You can make your own recruiting pages that's how I got mine. people that work for the recruiting site call and email you information.

    Re: what age can kids be recruited?

    Well schools always seem to have Junior day so schools are all well aware of their capabilities by then, but when they can officially call and talk to them I don't know.

    Re: what age can kids be recruited?

    He should be getting letters from schools by now if he is on anyones radiar. I dont want to be a downer but every year there are kids who are so called DI talent that never get a sniff. Parents also have a way of streaching the truth when it comes to kids being recurited and how good they are. College coaches have a way of knowing who to keep an eye on. If he starts to put up good numbers and has a good year he will get his looks.
