Today Basketball Women's Recruiting

College coaches are beginning their recruiting process earlier than previous years. Many basketball players are verballing their freshman and sophomore years versus their senior years due to increased levels of competition across the playing field. By the time you have reached your senior year in high school, colleges have reserved spots on the roster for the next two years.

Things To Consider

According to ncaa.org, only 3.4% (Men's) - 4% (Women's) of high school basketball players will move from high school to college. It is imperative for young baseball players to develop a strong work ethic early in their careers. By developing these habits they are not only prepared for basketball for the real world as well. (Men's) Out of 551,373 only 18,816 will participated in NCAA Schools. (Women's) Out of 412,407 only 16,614 will participated in NCAA Schools.

Basketball Women's Recruiting

College basketball is one of the most popular college sports in the U.S., and its scholarship numbers reflect that. In NCAA Division 1, basketball is a headcount sport for both men and women. That means each team can award a certain amount of full scholarships. The limit per team is 13 for men's teams and 15 for women's teams. In Division II and lower, basketball is an equivalency sport with a scholarship limit of 10.

That means teams can divvy up 10 full scholarships any way they like. They could have 10 players on full scholarship, 15 on two-thirds scholarship or 20 players on half scholarships. Not all schools choose to fund scholarships to the maximum numbers, and private school scholarships often are worth more than those at public schools.

High School Athletes

For most high school baseball athletes, the senior year is way too late to start the recruiting process. If your goal is to play college basketball, you will need to submit your college applications prior to the start of your senior season. Because of the time-sensitive nature of basketball recruiting, it is important to use the results of your freshman season to generate your target list for scholarship offers, regardless of whether you have College Scouts and Recruiters at your games.

Recruiting Calendar

Understanding the NCAA recruiting calendar can help student-athletes and their parents navigate the often complicated process of committing to further their education while playing sports at the collegiate level. Member schools of the NCAA are required to abide by this official calendar, serving as a guide for both the colleges and the student-athletes. There are four defined periods of this process:

During this period, college coaches are permitted to have face-to-face contact with prospective college student-athletes as well as their parents or guardians. College coaches and recruiters may also visit the high school athletes at their school and watch them compete and practice. This is the most active time period of the recruiting process.

Like the contact period, coaches may visit high schools and watch the athlete compete and may also write or call the recruit and their parents. However, unlike the contact period, the coach may not have face-to-face interaction with the recruit outside of the college campus.

As the most restrictive period, the dead period prohibits all in-person interaction and only allows written and phone communication.

The restrictions intensify during the quiet period. During this time, coaches are allowed to call or write the recruit but the only in-person interaction must occur on the college campus. Recruiters are not allowed to visit the high school and watch the student-athletes compete.
