The Bleacher Report has a nice breakdown of the recruiting process. Even if you are pretty familiar with the process, it's a good read. Two quick things I would point our are regarding offers and unofficial visits. Many recruits think they have an offer when they really don't. Sometimes coaches tell players they are going to offer to see what type of reaction they receive from the recruit. Lastly, the article didn't point out recruits attending spring practices. Attending spring practices is another very important part of the process that falls under the "unofficial visit" category. In my opinion, it's one of the best way's to gauge a recruits interest in the program.
