***Recruiting Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING***

The recruiting forum has gotten out of hand and we need to fix this right now. I admit that I myself may have slipped up in the past, but not anymore. The recruiting forum is not exempt from the rules for the rest of the forums. This is not a new rule, just a clarification of an existing one.

Links:

No factual information can be posted without a link to the source of that information. This means any time a player commits to a school, names a leader, drops a school from his list, etc. you must provide a link with your post. If you do not have a valid link supporting your information then keep it to yourself. Obviously, you don't need to link to your own personal opinions. Just make it clear that they are your opinions.

Acceptable Sources:

Most online newspapers and websites are acceptable. No premium information (info that you pay for) is to be posted. The only exception to that rule is if the information you are posting is in the header of a premium article, which is free for all to read. If the information is hidden behind the words "click here to subscribe," then don't even bother. Websites such as Buckeye Planet, IrishEvy, and MGoBlog are acceptable. However, only information from the articles/interviews/blog posts from these sites are permissible. Any information obtain on one of these sites' message boards should be assumed to be unreliable (even if you yourself trust it). Anything posted on Facebook is private information and should be treated that way.

Disciplinary Action:

Since this is a fresh reminder, everyone gets one freebie. The first time you break this rule, you will have your post deleted and that is it. If you break it a second time, your post will be deleted and you will get a warning. If you ignore the warning and break it a third time, you will receive an infraction.

Remember, these are Scott Wright's rules not mine. We want everyone to still have fun, but we can't keep ignoring the rules of the website.

Most of the people that you see going to D1 Programs didn't do it by sitting around and praying. Get a highlight tape on the internet
    How exactly do you get someone on rivals/scout if they have good game film?

        Rivals - http://footballrecruiting.rivals.com...rm=334&SID=880

        Fill it out. Some guy will call you asking additional questions and then you will be added to the database. Keep the number so if you have film you can get the details on how to upload it to your rivals profile.

        Scout - I'm not totally sure how to get one of these. I had one but that was from attending numerous camps as a Junior and Senior in HS, then again in junior college.

          Send film to schools he's interested in and has the ability to play at. Then attend the summer camp. Call the coach first

                If I recall, there are scouting services you can contact who will put together a highlight tape for you and start getting your name out to colleges. They're essentially an agency service for high school kids.

                I dunno what the cost is, though. I imagine it's not out-of-this-world but I could be wrong.

                  At least $1000 or more, but if you do it on your own you can save hundreds of dollars and get to know the coaches personally.

                    He's 6'4 and 190. For schools to be seriously interested, he needs to get his weight up.

                      id be willing to help out if you could somehow get me some tape of the kid. Im currently trying to get my own recruiting service going.Although i am only 20 years old, I have three years experience coaching at the high school varsity level going onto my forth year. I currently coach linebackers and oline. I am also in charge of recruiting tapes for our team and help create the gameplans every week with our defensive coordinator, so breaking down the film and sending to colleges would not be a problem for me at all. let me know if you need any help Coach Derek Hoekstra email: hoekd0250@uwc.edu

                          Send the tape to every school. Hope to hear back. Be persistent.

                            The only recruits to come out of Canada on a consistant basis are O-Linemen. Not often will skill position guys make it down here and never has a QB ever done it. Just look at the CFL.. its Canada's own league and there are no Canadian QB's in it.
                            The best your friend may be able to hope for is CIS or NAIA. If he truly displays that he has an absolute canon at an American camp that may get him a perfered walk-on offer from a NCAA school, but then again i doubt it... there are too many strong armed kids already down here.

                              your friend is only a sophomore so that's good, he has more time to get better. He's not gonna play for a major program. I suggest getting him in the weight room and getting him stronger. He really needs more zip on the ball... like a lot more, if he even want's to dream about a scholarship anywhere in the US.

                              He can only do so much, those things come naturally. It's good getting him out there though.

Also send out game film early in the process, my buddy waited way too long to do it, and by then most schools had all their slots filled up. And he was told by some other BCS schools that he would have been their top LB recruit but he had to wait till next year to get an offer, but he managed to find a d1 school with an opening and now he's at Utah State.
