Our recruiting experts talk about a few questions college coaches like to ask during phone conversations with recruits.

A few questions coaches like to ask during an initial phone call include:

1. How are you doing in school: What is your GPA and test scores?
2. What are your strengths and weaknesses as a player?
3. What other schools are you interested in?
4. Why do you think you can play at this level?

Practice answering these questions before your call, so you are prepared when asked.
