They also carried out elaborate research, including their College Recruiting Survey of over 500 college coaches, in addition to discussions with hundreds of high school coaches and counselors, college financial aid and admissions officers, and student-athletes and their parents. Their personal experience and this extensive research convinced them there was a strong need for this book.
