My name is Laurie Richter, and I am the parent of a college basketball player who went through the recruiting process a few years ago.
My first book was Put Me In, Coach: A Parent's Guide to Winning the Game of College Recruiting. It can be found at http://www.collegesportsrecruitingbook.com. I wrote both books to help others avoid the recruiting mistakes so many people we knew made.
I have 24 years of market research experience which I put to good use to write both books, and degrees in psychology and educational psychology. I interviewed dozens of college coaches. My hope is that my books help increase the odds of finding the right college situation.
