Description:  “Coach ‘wants me’… so I’m IN, right?”   Not quite. 

NCAA, NAIA, D1, D2, D3. Verbal commitments, NLI, dead periods, and the coveted “full scholarship.” The college athletic recruitment process, by its very nature, can be overwhelming, convoluted, and very misunderstood.  And the COVID-19 pandemic has added even more issues to navigate.

Please join a panel of college athletic and admission experts as we provide clarity to and discuss what has changed and what remains the same in the college athletics recruitment process. (Come prepared with your questions and to add your experience and ideas to the group.)

When: Thursday, February 4th, 10am-11:30am ET 

Cost:  FREE for PACAC Members. Non-Members: $10
