when do college coaches really check out a prospectsMarch 4 2009 at 2:14 PM
grades in high school? I know that on our team's brochure that some of the players put down a 3.0 because the number "2" doesn't look too good. But in reality, they don't have the 3.0. Does it matter much that they put inaccurate information and do they actually check it and when? Thanks.
All offers are contingent...

Regardless of whether it is a verbal offer or a written offer (NLI), they are contingent on the student applying to the college in question, be accepted by the college in question, and successfully complete their HS obligations.
The offer can be yanked at any time, due to academic eligibility, i.e. low grades, SATs, etc.
Most coaches will ask for SAT scores and/or HS transcripts for a verbal offer. The school will definitely ask for a forma application, which includes all of that, prior to a written offer.
Furthermore, colleges will request students register with the NCAA Clearinghouse to make sure they are eligible to play college sports and again are taking the proper courseload.
Therefore, don't worry about what other kids on your team are doing or not doing with regard to their grades. If they are not being truthful, they will only end up hurting themselves. Worry about your kid and what they are doign in this process.

It is really simple! Mind your own business and take care of your own player.Coaches receive all pertinent grades that will affect an athletes future at their school regardless of the type of offer but maybe we should give them your number just so you can spew your nastiness..!!Better yet maybe we can all call on your childs behalf so the coach will know what they may be getting into concerning your athlete and the family that raised them...
I must have missed something.

Why bring it up or point it out if not to imply that "some teammates" aren't being totally up front?Oh I see. You are trying to protect them and keep them from hurting their recruiting chances, right?? I really don't think that was your intent when you posted this or the OP posted this and I think most people will agree.
really was trying to get an answer, not get blasted for

many players use the average of all classes for GPA calculation. You should use the core classes only as is done for Hope. If you go to a private school that mandates bible each semester, many schools do not use these grades as well. It is very important to understand the entrance requirements for each school and the process the coach goes through to get his players in. Each state run college has different core class requirements as well that should be looked at during your junior . Sometimes there is stretch on GPA if the SAT is there but this is not football or basketball and the minor sports athletes (80 percent of the time )are put through the same process as any applicant. Clearing House certification does not get you in but is a requirement by the NCAA . Hope that helps
