It's kind of a stupid question, but is there a difference between being recruited and blue chipped? I didn't think there was, but I've seen the term thrown around so many different ways I wanted to make sure. Also, I'm currently working towards (attempting) to be recruited for Cross Country. Would someone be able to walk me through that process? I understand it has a lot to do with the coaches and actively reaching out to the USAFA coach, but I'd love to hear individual stories about being recruited for athletics. Especially any about XC! Thanks!
