New NCAA Recruiting Rule Breakdown:
On April 14, the NCAA voted to pass new legislation on early recruiting. The legislation bans college lacrosse coaches from communicating with prospective student-athletes (PSAs) until September 1 of their junior year of high school.
In the webinar recap, you’ll learn:
- How the new NCAA legislation will impact your recruiting process – and what you can do about it
- How to get recruited as a freshman, sophomore, or junior given the new rules
- How SportsRecruits Insights can help you navigate an evolving recruiting landscape

How can I learn more about using Insights?

Insights is a tool that is designed to help your family find the perfect college fit for your son or daughter. You are matched with a dedicated Analyst who will make sure you are targeting the right schools at the right time. The goal of Insights is not to find a college fit, but to find the RIGHT fit.
Should I still attend summer showcases if I am a freshman?
Yes, at the higher ends of Division I, evaluations will still begin starting in the freshman year. College coaches will build a list of prospects based on observations they make the summer after freshman year. The student-athletes on that list will be evaluated throughout their sophomore year and the final evaluations will occur the summer after sophomore year. These events are still valuable to your recruiting process and are a great chance to play against top talent.
Coaches will follow your progression all throughout high school and see how you develop as a student-athlete. You will need to grab the attention of college coaches early on in order for them to track your progression until September 1 of the junior year.
Can Insights still help a student with a 4.0 GPA?
Yes, the Academic Fit Report is just one of the many deliverables that we provide Insights customers throughout the 12 month process. A 4.0 student will be in the top quartile of recruits interested in a particular school, but that does not mean they can get into any school of their choosing. Once that student takes the standardized test, we will be able to show them how their scores compare to other recruits interested in the top academic schools.
Insights is designed to help families find the right fit not only academically, but athletically, socially, geographically, and financially. Each family that purchases Insights gets an action plan custom to their individual recruiting process.
Other data uses are Interest Scores, which will let you know the most popular schools amongst recruits to see the level of competition. We also provide Insights families best practices when communicating with college coaches based on data we have pulled from the millions of messages sent on our platform.
