What does that list tell us?

While a winning culture and playing style attract top recruits, having additional tools available to potential players can also help incentivize these young athletes. 
The decision whether or not to attend a particular school can be made more easily when young recruits and their families know that teams are invested in the full development of the athlete from college to beyond.
