Nov. 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Austin, TX- November 18, 2011- The latest edition of Sports Litigation Alert reports on the recruiting process for student athletes.

“The recruiting process is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most student-athletes. College coaches, however, recruit hundreds of players each year. Therefore, it is paramount that student-athletes and their parents are educated on the process, especially when athletic scholarships are involved.” writes Daniel Fitzgerald, an associate at Brody Wilkinson PC.
