However, Rick McDole, Director of Recruiting Operations at NCSA Athletic Recruiting Network, pointed out that, "players who earn the most attention from division one schools appear to dominate the high school level on film and physically they appear to be capable of playing with bigger, stronger and faster competition." The guidelines provided are meant to assist student athletes in better preparing themselves for the recruitment process and increase their odds of securing a spot on a college tennis team.

The guidelines were developed using data provided by a number of sources, including college tennis coaches from around the country, hundreds of student-athletes who have participated in men's tennis and college rosters.
