The nation's FIRST and ONLY all-inclusive data-driven college sports RESEARCH PLATFORM ... designed and built for the recruitable athlete and parent.

SportTechie is the world’s leading global sports technology resource covering the latest technological innovations, ideas, and products that impact the sports industry.

A computer software platform that organizes performance data, historical trends, and recruiting tendencies of college athletic teams and then makes it accessible for the high school athlete who desires to play college sports.

MISSION2018: Make the process BETTER for everyone

recruitable athletes + high school coaches + summer coaches + college coaches + parents + THE BUSINESS OF COLLEGE SPORTS

THE TRUTH

For most athletes, the college recruiting process has evolved to become very confusing, overwhelming, or even non-existent.

Currently, athletes and families have a difficult time evaluating college sport programs, leveraging their skills and talents, and knowing which school is truly the right fit.

So, we developed the first-ever college sports software platform, called RecruitsIQ, that scores the program attributes within college athletic teams by using performance data and provides comparative analytics. Now, recruitable athletes can search and evaluate, in a very transparent and objective way, which schools will enhance their college sports experience.

Our WHY: COACH GREWE'S Passion and Purpose

We are NOT a Recruiting Company

We are NOT a Showcase Company

why is this important FOR THE RECRUITABLE ATHLETE

We are NOT a Player Ranking Company

We are NOT a Tournament Company

WHY

To make the college recruiting process better for high school athletes and families through truth and transparency


HOW

Score and rank every college baseball program according to the same equal standards by using data and technology.


WHAT

Our easy-to-use software platform, called RecruitsIQ, that serves as an all-inclusive research platform.

Our 30-day recruiting training program, called GoingPro, that comes with a free membership of RecruitsIQ.

Our monthly recruiting insights training program called, RecruitsIQ Online Training Academy.

A deep dive in our software platform

Where does the data come from?

We acquire data from the same sources that all major colleges and universities use to report … The Department of Education’s Integrated Post-Secondary Data System.

The NCAA acquires student-athlete graduation rate data from the Department of Education’s Integrated Post-Secondary Data System Graduation Rate Survey (IPEDS-GRS). http://www.ncaa.org/about/resources/research/graduation-rates

How do you score and rank college baseball programs?

We have built a very detailed algorithm and have filed a patent for it. Our algorithm is our patented intellectual property. The “program attributes” for the sport of baseball are what we believe recruits and families should evaluate before making a choice / commitment.

 

Each and every attribute is scored according to our proprietary algorithm using different data points, including yearly performance data, combined stats of team performance (ex. bb+hbp / K’s = bbhk ratio), historical performance data over a set date range, national graduation rates, etc.

 

We wanted to make sure our algorithm was built the right way and completely different than anything in amateur athletics. Opinions on programs are not our business. That is left up to the athlete, their coaches, their agents, and the process that will always be.

 

It’s easy to look at rankings or W/L% polls … but how many players are actually recruited by those programs, and in truth, W/L is not the “end-all be-all” of programs. For example, Florida won the natty in 2017, but they did not have the top-ranked performance excellence score in our platform. Are they in scoring in our top 10, absolutely, but not scored #1. They received the top score for post-season success for sure.

 

And most importantly, ALL college programs scored in our platform are ranked (displayed on search page – not compared) against only programs in an equal comp set … ex. NAIA only … D3 only … D1 only …

 

We are a college comparison company with a very objective approach to comparing, scoring and ranking … apples to apples, not apples to oranges.

 

In the near future, we are going to implement a simple star system assigned to each program attribute.

Are you a recruiting company?

NO … NO … NO! You don’t need a recruiting company and college coaches don’t want to hear from recruiting companies. They want to hear from YOU … the player! And only YOU … the player. That’s why we have an email system built into our computer application.

How often do you update data?

ALL THE TIME … We will be updating baseball version 1.0 every week until the 2018 season starts. Our ultimately goal is to update data for all 11 sports applications every week during the season of competition and twice during the off-season.

Is there only one membership option?

YES … Right now we are offering this special one-time membership. It’s for all of our NEW members and for those who want to build this with us … For this special offer, we are only offering a one-time signup option for a one-time fee.

One of the main reasons we are doing this is that we want to reward our founding members with a lifetime-high school membership at a major discounted rate – savings of $100.

Will you promise that I will get a college scholarship?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! HECK NO .. If someone is promising you that they will get you a college scholarship, then run as fast and as far away from that person as you can.

NO PERSON can do that … Only you can do that. Scholarships are given to players based on talent and timing.

What we will do is open more doors (that are the right fit) than you can ever do yourself. And for players that have the talent, we help them navigate the process and make the right decisions.

What data and information is in Baseball Version 1.0

By our January release, we will have program Program Excellence Scores for every D1, D2, D3, NAIA, CCCAA, NWAC, and 70% of all NJCAA programs … One of the reasons we are offering a special signup cost is for those determined to join us from the start!

BUILT BY A NATIONAL CHAMP COACH

built from in-the-game coaching and recruiting experiences from these major conferences and schools

It is strict company policy that all members of the iRecruit1440 leadership team, including Coach David Grewe, have NO direct contact with ANY college coaches to discuss players, programs needs or wants, or anything related to help place a player (WE ARE NOT a recruiting company). Also note, Coach David Grewe has zero contact with any former schools, coaches, administrators, or staff members, including his coaching stops at LSU, MSU, Notre Dame, CMU, and UC. This proves that the entire iRecruit1440 platform is completely objective and non-biased. Again, Coach Grewe has absolutely NO contact with former coaches or schools in which he coached. All school rankings is solely based from performance data.

What People Are Saying About Using RecruitsIQ

  • John - Tennessee Tech

    I really appreciate being able to use the RecruitsIQ platform. We made the right decision because the opportunity I have is amazing. This application proved to me that Tech is a legit program and exactly what I want. I loved being able to choose the program preferences.

  • Sullivan - Bethel College

    This process was hard for me. I really couldn’t have done this on my own. I was expecting coaches to find me, and it wasn’t until I did the research did I find several additional options for me. I also used a recruiting service but they didn’t do anything for me. I did all my own search through RecruitsIQ. It was very helpful.

  • Grant - Crowley CC

    My dream is to play D1 ball. My summer coach told me I’m not ready yet. So, when I decided to go the juco route, I used Coach Grewe’s RecruitIQ platform. I was able to compare all the juco programs in Texas and Kansas. I loved it. It was so easy to use.

  • Nick - Clemson

    For me it was all about validating if this was the right fit. I had several offers and when I found out about the RecruitsIQ software, I wanted to see how the schools compared to each other. I have an awesome summer coach who helped me, but when I used the application it showed me that my commitment was right for me.
