We all have our deficiencies in life. Pick someone and you can find one. What separates the haves from the have nots or the successful from the not so successful is how they handle the setbacks that come from lacking that required ingredient.
Every recruiting cycle some recruits are left to deal with the fact that they did not receive offers or sign a scholarship. Assuming that they were indeed talented enough, the biggest reason for this happening is related to size and in particular, lack of height. Often times these recruits take to Twitter to express their disappointment, anger and displeasure with their situation. What I have found during my time involved in the world of recruiting is that lack of height is a problem that for many, has a solution if they are willing to tackle it.
