What is college athletic recruiting?
What is NCAA and what is the difference between Division 1, 2, and 3 colleges?
- NCAA stands for National Collegiate Athletic Association and it governs all the collegiate sports in the US across various states and colleges.
● The divisions are a measure of how many athletic programs that are supported by a University – D1 schools have more funds allocated to athletic programs than D3 schools, but there are multiple D3 universities that have a much higher academic ranking than D1 and D2 universities. When coaches commit to athletes joining their team, University admissions become far easier and simplified
