How has HS recruiting changed?

There have been many changes that come into place since schools Across America have made an adjustment to deal with Coronavirus. The college recruitment area has been greatly affected by this unprecedented situation.
What exactly did these changes mean for college athletes or high school students wanting to pursue a sport in college? Now more than ever it has become very important for student-athletes to maximize their online presence with college coaches on the internet. From Zoom meetings to online tours, many students have become very proactive in this category. This greatly differs from previous years where there was in person tours, college visits, and showcases, e.g. camps and tournaments.
This process is very important for many high school students. Student-athletes across the country have been faced with financial difficulties from the pandemic, leaving them in desperate need to be recruited to a college in order to pursue their dreams. Excelling in sports is their prime way to do so. Earning a scholarship from a specific college can be a life-changing experience for an athlete. It can also change the lives of many families of these athletes.
As for the high school, there were many games postponed or cancelled and new guidelines put in place in response to the Coronavirus changes. These changes can go as far as impacting classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023. Many housing guidelines companies have been keeping track to see if these changes to the recruitment process have been necessary and if they are reliable. From these changes in games, it is becoming increasingly difficult for students to be noticed by college recruiters, who are not allowed to attend games.
Even students that may have not performed as well in previous years who were looking forward to this year as a chance for them to better themselves in their sport but due to Covid-19 come near impossible for them to show how much they’ve improved as a player. Students are encouraged to reach out to colleges instead of having them reach out to the players first. Due to this, it has made it more possible for students to achieve their dreams.
Many students have also been creating for themselves highlight videos to share with colleges as a more effective way for them to share their skills in a safe way while cooperating with the health and safety guidelines from Covid-19. All of these precautions have still made it possible for students to fulfill their possibilities of becoming college athletes.
