1. "With over 1,200 college programs and 35,000 college coaches, the recruiting process is not what it used to be." By an athlete's junior year, the athlete should know if they want to pursue playing their sport in college. "If you are waiting until your junior or senior year to begin the sports recruiting process, you are going to be left behind."

2. It is important to know what to do after junior year and before your senior year in order to excel in recruiting. There is competition across the nation and an athlete must somehow get their name out there amongst thousands of other athletes. An athlete may need help when putting together a product and sending it to colleges, so a recruiting service may not be a bad idea.

3. Athletes may have to spend some money in order to better their chances in getting recruited. Sometimes, an athlete's Head Coach will be the "recruiting service" and is very helpful, but can't depend on your head coach getting the athlete a scholarship. "Going through the recruiting process alone doesn’t work for everyone, and paid services can provide the extra boost when looking for a college athletic scholarship."

3. If you're an athlete who has already received this attention already, now YOU are the recruiter. Going on visits, asking questions, and researching the schools that are interested in you will make your college choice a lot easier. A lot of athletes make the wrong decision come signing day, and that is because of the lack of research they did on the university.

4. "There are about 126,000 students receiving approximately $1 billion of athletic scholarship financial aid to play college sports." 126,000 athletes is not a lot, to get yourself on this list you have to be proactive in your recruitment. There is only so much money to go around for everyone.

2. At the end of your junior year, an athlete should send out their highlight tape in order for the recruiting to begin. This is where a recruiting service will come in handy because they do it all for you. At the end of the day, the athlete is getting the scholarship, not them, so the athlete has to be just as proactive.

3. If you get the recognition you wanted, you have until the first week in february of your senior year usually to make your decision. The athlete needs this time to take it all in and take everything into account when choosing a college. Visit every school you're interested in and ask questions.

Good job paraphrasing and good inclusion of key direct quotes.
