My DS was a recruited athlete at USNA as well as a variety of other schools. At least for him, the process with USNA was the same as the other schools. He sent all the coaches information about what events he would be playing in and invited them to come and watch. If they did, he would follow up with an email of appreciation that they took the time to watch him. He also sent video highlights so that the coaches could evaluate his performance given most of the time, they were not able to attend. It wasn't until the summer after his junior year that they could actually start to talk with him beyond invitations to their camps and academic information about the school. USNA followed the rules as layed out in the NCAA website http://www.ncaa.org/student-athletes/resources/recruiting-calendars
. He never had an "Official" visit to the USNA though we did have one "Unofficial" visit and after that, his decision was made that he wanted to play for Navy. Before he committed to Navy, during his senior year, the coach contacted him frequently and walked him through the program, the school, life at USNA, his coaching philisophy, etc. As noted above, there are no athletic scholarships at USNA and because of this, the only difference that I noted is that DS did not sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) as this is linked to athletic scholarship money. Still, on NLI signing day, DS went public on social media proud of his committment.
Also of note, DS also had to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center https://web3.ncaa.org/ecwr3/
which all NCAA athletes need to do.
Go luck and remember....
GO NAVY, BEAT ARMY
