Don't wait, start today, you will need all the time you can get.
Don't make the mistake I almost did and wait to late. You need to start right now, even if your son or daughter is a freshman.

NCAA Eligibility and Recruiting
Click here to read more on how student-athletes can comply with NCAA rules in order to compete in D1 and D2 intercollegiate athletics including what high school students need to do to be eligible to compete their first year in college, as well as guidelines that coaches and prospective student-athletes must follow during the recruiting process.
Pay particular attention to the NCAA FRESHMAN-ELIGIBILITY STANDARDS.
GPA and ACT
These two are a must if you want your son or daughter to get a scholarship at a D1 or a D2 college. If you do not know you students GPA currently contact the school counselor. The combination of GPA and ACT is part of the NCAA standards. Pay particular attention to the NCAA FRESHMAN-ELIGIBILITY STANDARDS.
Grade point average is just as important if not more so than skills on the field. Grades, proper diet, speed training, agility and strength need to start now.
D1 may be nice but your son will probably get more playing time with a D2 or Junior College.
Many D1 and D2 scholarships will pay for everything.
Most if not all, Junior College's will only pay book and tuition with future changes of getting another Scholarship from a D1, D2, NAIA college.
If you son is a lineman and is 6'3" now or you think he will be then he is a prime D1 candidate. D2 schools like height as well but it is not as important as skills. My observations this year after attending many OL/DL camps with my son, coaches pulled every player over 6' 3" to watch them perform with the exception of team camps.
Of the other parents I talked to they said the biggest consideration was the college that was going to pay the most.
