College Recruiting Expert Jack Renkens to Visit SPF High School

October 14, 2013 at 10:08 PM

SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ - Recruiting expert Jack Renkens will be speaking in the Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School auditorium on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. His presentation lasts about an hour, and is recommended for any student-athlete that is thinking about the college recruitment process.

Renkens is a nationally recognized speaker who founded Recruiting Realities to clarify myths about college recruiting and to inform people what the process is about. He didn’t realize how little families know about the college recruiting process until his daughter became a nationally ranked high school basketball player.

Renkens has been the keynote speaker at places such as Chicago Bears Training Camp, Nike Basketball Clinics, and Athletic Directors Conferences around the country. He has also been the Athletic Director at Assumption College, and basketball coach at schools in Arizona, Illinois, and Kansas.

Renkens will be in the auditorium starting at 5:45 p.m. to answer any individual questions.
