Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Followers of college sports are familiar with the regular occurrence of university athletic programs being penalized for recruiting violations. What is not so well known is how murky the world of recruiting is, even when done according to the regulations. Claerbaut (Durocher's Cubs; The NBA Analyst) relates what he and his stepson, a star high school running back, experienced in the process of being recruited by some major university programs. He was inundated by mailings from schools that never physically contacted them, received nonbinding scholarship offers that evaporated at decision time, and was invited for a school visit and then ignored by the coaching staff. At the schools, they sometimes found suffering coaches, high-pressure sales techniques, and coaches leaving for a better opportunity at other schools. The author shows how this can be a tough world for inexperienced parents, let alone an 18-year-old, to understand and negotiate. At times the secondary story of the author building an enduring relationship with his introverted stepson gets in the way of the bigger tale, but overall it is a well-written account. Recommended for public libraries.-John Maxymuk, Rutgers Univ. Lib., Camden, NJ Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    A Must Read For H.S.Seniors Wanting to Play College Football

    As a mother I was not that familiar with the football recruiting process. This book pinpoints to a tee everything that we went through as a family during our sons senior year of football. Any family going through this process knows how emotional it can get and it is very hard to know what coaches and colleges are being truthful. Bottom line is you don't want to make the wrong decision. This book will help keep things in perspective. It is not just a read for D-1 prospects. It is especially good for those boys that are good enough to play D-1, but for whatever reason they don't get the offers.
