The vast majority of athletes and parents lack the knowledge and understanding of the college recruiting process. Even the families who experience it with one child can be overwhelmed going through it again with another child. Many athletes and parents just let the process run its course. And ultimately, the college recruiting process leaves them feeling confusing, frustrating, and left out.
Add to that, there are no easy ways of evaluating the inner-workings of college sport programs. And because the recruiting process is the lifeblood of college athletics, nothing will ever change from a coaching perspective.
The solution is to eliminate confusion and create balance by putting power back in the hands of the athlete!
Confusion exists for three main reasons:
First, there are multiple factors that go into the college recruiting and selection process (for example, cost of scholarship, cost of school, playing opportunities, location of school, reputation of coach, success of programs).
Secondly, the competitive nature of the industry creates a lack of transparency. Players and families have a very difficult time knowing the truth and inner workings of every program.
Finally, every recruit has different needs and wants and therefore, the process is unique each athlete based on talent.
So what has to happen? … CHANGE … something NEWER and BETTER. It’s what we call disruptive CHANGE that helps everyone but only effects a select group. CHANGE that balances the entire recruiting process for everyone involved yet, empowers the athlete.
We are providing this needed change via our RecruitsIQ computer app and educational platform. Now, instead of being confused with what coaches are saying, overwhelmed with school options, or frustrated with the limited amount of time to choose a dream school, athletes and families NOW HAVE a centralized platform to search, find, and compare college athletic teams against each other.
