The Start of Something
My College Recruiting Experience
The Start of Something When I graduated from high school, I was looking forward to two things: one was going off to college: the other was something more special,becoming a college tennis player. I had recently accepted a scholarship to Mars Hill College, a Division II college outside Asheville, NC,, Earlier that year I had visited a number of different schools before deciding on Mars Hill. I was drawn to Mars Hill for many reasons including location, size, and the members of the tennis team. I truly believed I was a great fit for the school and Mars Hill was a great fit for me as well. "The tennis team at Mars Hill was made up of nine players from many different backgrounds."
My College Recruiting Experience There are many words to describe the whole recruiting process. Any junior tennis player who graduated in 2009 or before will tell you this. It is an experience that encompasses diverse emotions. Excitement, anxiety, stress, and pressure are all words that will describe your mental state of mind starting on July 1st before your senior year. As a recruit, there were several instances where I was confused on where I would actually end up for college. Sure, there are always those big time schools that you have wanted to go to since before you could walk, but there are several factors to consider before making such a huge commitment. All my life I have been a Duke fan. If the doctor told me I bled blue blood I would probably believe him. After seeing my father go to graduate school there and growing up around the campus, I fell in love with the school and every aspect about it.
