Narrowing Your Focus

Don't Put All Your Eggs in One Basket

Regardless of where you see yourself as a player, we recommend you try and keep 15 schools on your radar during your freshman and sophomore year.   As you rule out a school you can then replace them until you no longer have schools that meet your criteria.  This is how you will narrow your list down.  Use the chart below based upon where you see yourself as a player in college to get an idea how many schools at each association you should look at.   Note this is just a guideline.
