In fact, many high schools coaches and administrators aren't up-to-date on the process. They may know what it takes for a student to graduate high school, but having the right courses to get past through the NCAA Clearinghouse is another story. This will help kids and their families get educated on the basics to give themselves the best possible chance to make the right decisions.

Every high school athlete dreams of playing college sports. But for those whose talent actually takes them to the next level, STACK (http://www.stack.com) has published the Ultimate Recruiting Guide, guest-edited by Bruce Feldman, senior writer for ESPN The Magazine and author of Meat Market: Inside the Smash-Mouth World of College Football Recruiting. Distributed with STACK's January/February 2008 issue, the STACK Recruiting Guide will be available in 7,200 high schools nationwide.

"Understanding the college sports recruitment process can be daunting for high school students and their parents," said STACK Co-Founder Nick Palazzo. "High school athletic directors don't have the time or resources to walk each athlete through the process, but the STACK Recruiting Guide equips athletes with the tools they need to market themselves as indispensable players in the recruiting game. We are thrilled to tap Bruce's expertise in our ongoing mission of providing guidance and support for high school athletes."

From basic recruiting terminology and academic requirements to financial information and advice about communicating with college coaches, the 20-page Recruiting Guide insert is a comprehensive, step-by-step handbook detailing the entire recruitment process. The guide also outlines Division I, II, and III breakdowns and important deadlines in 2008, making it a one-stop recruitment resource for athletes.    

"When I spoke to recruits and their families, I realized how little most people know about the recruiting process," said Feldman. "In fact, many high schools coaches and administrators aren't up-to-date on the process. They may know what it takes for a student to graduate high school, but having the right courses to get past through the NCAA Clearinghouse is another story. This will help kids and their families get educated on the basics to give themselves the best possible chance to make the right decisions."
