Jessica Pistole, Head Coach for San Diego Softball, talks about what she looks for in potential recruits. While every coach and program may not be completely aligned in what they’re looking for, there are several traits that most coaches actively look for in recruits.
Those traits include a positive attitude, work ethic in the classroom and field, the ability to connect and inspire teammates, and how a player responds to successes and failures.
Not all athletes fit perfectly with a college program. However, this doesn’t mean the athlete isn’t a good player or won’t find the right fight.
