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.

A Recruiting Revolution

How can one tool simplify a process as personal as college recruitment?

For one, athletes can communicate with any coach in the country. Why is this important? On SportsRecruits, athlete success is directly correlated with initiative. The platform puts Rise Above athletes in direct contact with college coaches. They can look up any school in the country, and contact its coach within the same browsing session. In a space where tradition has athletes divorced from their recruiting processes, this is a big deal.

But that’s not all.

“The most important thing will be the benefit of guidance,” said Brendan Carter about the benefits of the platform to athletes.

Rise Above coaches can use SportsRecruits to tailor their guidance. They can recommend schools to players and families, which keeps everybody involved in the process. SportsRecruits organizes every message sent out to coaches. This way, Rise Above staff members can see when a player follows up on a recommendation.

“For a lot of families, this will be their first time sending a child through college,” said Carter. “SportsRecruits will smooth that process.”
