following kpmom2013, as a DIII school (DII for some sports/club sports) there is no "recruiting" where the teams get certain spots to use, etc. It is a DIII rule. At the DOD academies, the sports have "golden tickets" they can use. Not so at USMMA. The Coaches can assist, however, and this assistance can be very helpful if there is an athlete that the coach wants.
