EARLY RECRUITING

 

Genre:  Sports Documentary

 

Logline:  Young female student-athletes "commit" to attend and play lacrosse at prestigious colleges years before the formal admissions process but at what cost?  

 

Summary:  Early Recruit: The Role of Sports in Education profiles the top lacrosse coaches and female student-athletes who have "committed" to one of the most accelerated early recruiting processes in college sports today.  Enabled by loopholes in the NCAA rules, prospective student-athletes can verbally commit at any age to a college coach but with no guarantee of future admissions.
