What's the deal with Division 3 football colleges in terms of recruitment?

Hey everyone! I'm a junior and I've been playing football for my high school team. I was wondering, how does the recruitment process work for division 3 football colleges? Are there any academic requirements or scholarships I should know about?

Hello! I'm glad to see you're interested in continuing football at the collegiate level. In Division 3, the recruitment process is less intense than in Divisions 1 and 2 because Division 3 schools do not offer athletic scholarships. However, they do recruit athletes and can offer other forms of financial aid based on need or merit.

Academically, Division 3 schools range in competitiveness, and you'll need to meet the admission standards for the school you're interested in. It's important to maintain a strong GPA and have a good academic record.

To get on a coach's radar, I suggest you create a highlight reel of your best football moments and reach out to coaches with your interest. Attend camps and combines where Division 3 coaches may be scouting. Also, each institution may have specific rules or guidelines for recruitment, so it's wise to research the schools you're interested in and understand their particular processes. As a junior, you're at the perfect time to start this outreach. Early contact can put you on a coach's watch list and potentially lead to a spot on a team. Remember, being proactive is key. Good luck with your recruitment journey!
