Virtual recruiting strategies could stay after pandemic ends

Recruiting restrictions brought about by the pandemic forced coaching staffs to find new ways to make their pitches to top high school seniors. Some of the ideas worked well enough to perhaps become permanent fixtures. Students couldn’t make official visits during a prolonged recruiting dead period. So schools brought the campus to them through virtual tours. Coaches would like to continue using those tools after the pandemic to supplement all the usual recruiting methods they employed before this prolonged dead period.
