Technology and Recruiting - They are intertwined

I love Athletic Business, great magazine. Good article on how the NCAA is constantly chasing the regulation of technology in the recruiting process.

Of course, the regs really go after the most affluent programs with access to both staff and resources to use the technology that is available.

Be that as it may, there are some many free services to run a video chat from a web cam that maybe it is a blessing for small programs with limited budgets.

The typical HS kid knows how to use a web cam and an online messanger. It might not hurt to include your IM handle in your player profile and let coaches know you can enable video chat. Especially if you are trying to make a good impression, that face to face can't be beat. That said, exercise caution before using it. Start with a phone call or email before getting to that level. Ask the coach if it is against NCAA rules to play to safe.
