Help, @CTeamPoke and other guys. Since there aren’t any camps this year and Kellyville didn’t do spectacular last fall, how should my grandson go about contacting coaches. I told him to write an email introducing himself and to send a link to his highlight video to various coaches at different universities and colleges. NEO only has email addresses listed for Zach Allen and the OC and DC, no position coaches. OSU has an email for a recruiting coordinator so I assume that person distributes information to the appropriate position coach. I have compiled a list of email addresses for coaches at UCO, NSU, NEO, U of Tulsa, KU and OSU. What other schools might be a good choice to contact? Should he mail an actual letter or just stick with email?

I might as well post his highlight video here incase any coaches see this page. As a sophomore and in the summer after his sophomore year he attended some camps. Some of his measurables from those camps were 116 inch broad jump, 35+ inch vertical and 4.5-4.6 40 time. He plays cornerback, receiver, punt and kickoff return specialist.

If he appears to become a D1 prospect he will be found. Osu coaches receive 1000s of videos and don’t even watch them, they have paid personnel who weed through them. Most positions have parameters like no OL under 6’4” or no DBs who don’t run a 4.4 etc.
Being near Tulsa he will get noticed if he is a prospect. Tulsa has the Tulsa World plus all the OKPreps guys who go to team camps and do prospect write ups. They find guys in 8-man football schools. He needs to take care of the things he can take care of like grades, weight room, nutrition and speed work.
The NCAA will have to evaluate what the landscape looks like. Which will trickle down to the OSSAA. One day it looks like our team will be back up there in a couple wks, the next day it looks like no season. The NCAA will make plans regarding more camps, more visits, etc. The super team camps with 20+ college coaches are good to go to. Usually like $40ish and can compete against similar or elite prospects, plus you get more “official” measurements.
Hope this helps & best of luck to the young man! He put a lot of big plays on film!

I imagine coaches are watching more videos this year since they can’t be on the recruiting trail and recruits can’t come to campus.
