College recruitment and athletic scholarship information website AthleticScholarships.com has published Division II men's volleyball recruiting guidelines. The guidelines reveal what is considered to be the all around ideal stats for high level Division II men’s volleyball recruits that are selected to play at the collegiate level.
However, students should keep in mind that Division II men’s volleyball is competitive. There are just 4.5 volleyball scholarships per school offered to these athletes. Volleyball recruiters stress that athletes need to understand that more than athletic ability is factored. Academics and accolades of an athlete are being considered during the recruitment process. It’s also important to start planning early. Charlie Adams, a volleyball recruiter, has said, “it is a process. Start early, start building relationships with college coaches. Make yourself as appealing as possible."
It's essential for high school athletes intending to compete at the collegiate level to understand that evaluating prospective players isn’t an exact science. The volleyball recruiting guidelines serve to help student athletes and their parents better prepare themselves for the recruiting process and improve their odds of getting a position on a Division II men's volleyball team.
The guidelines were compiled using data from a number of sources, including but not limited to men's volleyball recruits across the country, college volleyball coaches and recruiters and college volleyball rosters.
