The drive time in my car is usually my chance to brainstorm with a clear head. This past week while I was driving back from spending Thanksgiving in Charleston I had a few thoughts pop into my head that I wanted to share.

žžIt is the time of year for many of you to be taking college visits and meeting with college coaches. This week's Recruit PKB article will cover a parent's role on college visits. The first on-campus meeting with a college coach can make or break their decision to continue recruiting a player. In many cases, the behavior of a parent can have a serious impact on which direction the recruiting process will go from there.
