NCAA Unofficial Visits
The best advice is to make as many unofficial visits as possible. But before you decide to do that please make sure to let the coaches know far in advance when you intend on visiting their program. Be aware of the fact that those visits at your own financial expense. Don’t be offended if coaches are not able to meet you, as this may make them complying with NCAA rules regarding contact depending on your age and graduation year.
Many athletes have been taking full advantage of these types of visits. This is an easy way to get coaches to realize you are a serious recruit. Of course, if the schools you want to attend are across the country, you will be looking at very expensive visits. And you need to be aware that taking a visit at your own cost will not guarantee you a spot on the team.
Coaches want to meet athletes who are interested in their program, but keep in mind that you might not be the right fit for the team. You need to ensure that you fit both academically and athletically. This is not just an athletic decision; it’s a one in a lifetime opportunity.
