National college recruiting expert Jack Renkins will speak to student athletes and their parents about opportunities for entering the recruiting process on March 9, 2016 at 7:00pm in the Lucy Hurlin Theatre.
From his days as a high school coach, administrator and teacher through his time as coach and Athletic Director at an award winning NCAA Division II school, Jack has witnessed the game from all sides. Jack founded Recruiting Realities, an organization dedicated to exploding the myths and presenting the realities of athletic recruiting to student-athletes, their families, coaches and school counselors. His highly informative and sought after program has been featured at thousands of schools across the United States, on numerous television programs and at sports camps from coast to coast. In addition, he is a weekly contributor to several major newspapers and magazines.
His message about collegiate athletic recruiting is simple: “It’s a game … know the rules.”
High school student athletes serious about continuing to play sports in college can never start too early nor get too much help. However, most students do not know the recruiting game, NCAA rules, or how to get matched with the best college choice for them. Jack will clarify recruiting myths and provide tips to parents and to students who are serious about taking their high school athletics to the next level. All student athletes and their families will be admitted to the program free. For more information contact Mark Swasey in the the Athletic Office (x4653).
