When it comes to being recruited and playing college sports, there are 8 common fallacies derailing well-intentioned athletes and parents. What's a fallacy? It's an error in reasoning that renders an argument logically invalid.
For our late summer series, here is-
Fallacy # 5- I don't have to worry about admissions, the coach will take care of that for me. Invalid!
Why is it invalid? Because it's false. You do have to worry about admissions. The coach may help, but it's your job to have credentials for winning an admission acceptance. What every mom and dad should know is that bypassing the admissions process can also cost you thousands in scholarships of which the coach can't help.
Our athletes make it a specific point to meet with admissions on every college visit. You should too.
