Closing Remarks

First of all, we’d like to thank Coach Revelette for providing some insight into his recruiting process and sharing advice for athletes. We absolutely agree that grades are extremely important and open up the door for many opportunities during the recruiting process. By players showing they can excel in the classroom, it shows coaches they are accountable, hard-working, and can balance the life of a student-athlete. This is something that many coaches have preached in other Program Spotlights. On that note, considering all levels is another piece of advice Coach Revelette mentioned which is also a common theme among other coaches. There are great programs at all levels and finding the right fit academically, athletically, financially, and socially, should all be considered over just level of division.

Again, thank you to Coach Revelette, and best of luck to the Billikens in their upcoming season!
