Once you find a college that you are interested in, the NCAA recommends that you sit down with a coach and ask some pertinent questions. “While knowing what questions to expect from a college coach and how to answer them is important, any conversation with a coach also allows the student athlete an opportunity to find out some critical information that will help them through the athletic recruiting process.  The key is to know the right questions to ask in order to maximize your short time with a coach.”
