Another important aspect of being Recruiting is having the Mental Game.

Amazing at how many books, and dvd's have been written to help strengthen you as a player for your mental game.

Found a site with a list of books and videos from some of the greats in softball.

I would add poor communications skills, to include not replying to coaching inquiries in a timely manner.

I agree with all of the above and would like to add that most kids have not been evaluated properly on where their talent level equates to for a college team.  Think about it, if you have a perfect SAT score you are probably looking at one of the top academic schools in the country.  This should be the same for your softball skills.  Most kids are being told by their parents how great they are from a very young age.  Then they go and play "travel ball" for some guy who just started a team because his daughter got cut by the best team in the area.  Their skills are never developed or challenged but they (player/parent) are thinking scholarship at UCLA/ARIZONA/FLORIDA...Wow, what a shocker it is to them when they finally are told the truth (their DD isn't skilled enough to play D1).  Anger, disbelief, pointing of fingers, "it's political" are all the emotions.  Most kids belong in JUCO/NAIA/D3/D2 based on their skills.  But since they are being lied to by their parents and "coaches" for so long it seems like anything but D1 is a slap in the face!
