Agreed, except for the conclusion "Placing the NCAA's logo or any other college's logo on your recruiting service website gives the public the impression that you are in some sort of relationship with the NCAA/college or that it is endorsing your services."
We cannot know that for sure without knowing the details of the use. If there is a prominent disclaimer there may be no such impression. The use of the logo presents copyright infringement problems since the use is commercial and unlikely to be deemed fair use since use of the logo is more than the minimum necessary to identify the school.

Thank you Sarvey and Bruce. Would a prominent disclaimer stating there is no agreement between my service and the use of the schools log be permissible? Also, can I mention college names in the text body? i.e. "Our recruiting service will communicate with any college of university, such as USC, Duke, Stanford, etc."
