SportsRecruits is a technology solution that automatically organizes the recruiting process for club staff and players. With SportsRecruits, players share their athletic stats, academic transcripts, event schedule and video. The Built-In Messaging System connects the club to every college coach in the country.

The Player-College Connection

With SportsRecruits, there is no limit to the number of coach-player connections that can be made. Every college coach in the country is represented in the school database. Each player has access to this information.

“What attracted our club to the SportsRecruits platform was its college database that helps kids find schools,” said Steve Turpening. “And gives them the ability to then contact the coach directly.”

When players find the right schools for them, they can send messages to coaches at those schools within the same browsing session.
“The SportsRecruits platform empowers the athlete and parents to be in charge of their college search.” said Turpening. “It also enables the club to monitor the process and provide input.”

Guidance can take the form of a club coach recommending schools to a player. Armed with his coach’s encouragement, the player can contact a college with confidence. At the end of the day, it’s the player that takes initiative.
