Step 3: Be consistent and aggressive
This is the mindset you need to have in the recruiting process. Someone else is trying to take this spot from you; it's not different than the real world.
Everyone is aiming for attention. You may not be able to control if you can't throw 80 mph or hitting a ball over 100 EVs.
But you can be consistent and aggressive.
College Coaches LOVE players who reach out to them.
They will watch your video, but they may not always respond, and that's okay.
Please don't feel discouraged by not getting the feedback you want immediately.
I have a story that will encourage you to keep pushing through.
This past year I had a client in my recruiting program who was a catcher, I texted a coach about him and sent his video, and he responded with, "thanks, I'll take a look at him."
I never heard back after that.
A few months later, I followed up with that coach to see what they thought of the kid.
I'm not kidding you; this is what his response was.
"What kid? Can you re-send his video again?"
I sent the video of the kid again, and he loved the video; he ended up calling the kid, watching him play, and offering him.
Timing is a big part of the recruiting game; sometimes, you catch coaches on a busy day or time of year. That's why it's essential to be consistent, aggressive, and patient.
If you can do all three of those on social media, you will end up where you're supposed to be.
