What are athlete questionnaires?

Once your student athlete gets to be about in Eleventh Grade, they will be receiving questionnaires from college coaches. Questionnaires are the only permissible type of correspondence that is allowed to send to students in the Eleventh Grade. I get asked this question all the time, because blue chip athletes, top student athletes, get bombarded with these questionnaires. There's over 2,000 colleges in this country, so that can be a lot of questionnaires. My attitude is, obviously, you can't fill out every single one, but even if you are only remotely interested in that school, you might still want to go ahead and fill out that questionnaire. Once you start looking at schools, reading about schools, and visiting schools, they change their mind all the time. They are really happy that they filled out the questionnaire. On further research, they are now interested in that school and they already have set the ball rolling with the coach.
