College Recruiting Athlete Profile

College Recruiting

I had a great talk yesterday with the mother of a basketball player in Jacksonville, Florida who is considering our services for college recruiting.  We talked about the recruiting process and how confusing it can be.  When I explained to her how easy and inexpensive it was, she was excited and surprised how easy and affordable it can be to have a prospectsites.com athlete profile website and market  her son.  It also reminded me that now would be a good time to write  a quick article on how inexpensive recruiting can be if you do it right.

So, here’s the cost and the process for marketing yourself to college coaches with our athlete profile.Slide___eight__

The Profile

  • We have the most complete and high quality profile online.  Don’t take our word for it, visit our articles page and see what our clients have to say!
  • Just $8.95 per month.
  • One year cost is just over $100

Access to College Coaches

  • We recommend using collegiatedirectories.com.
  • Includes access to the email addresses for colleges and college coaches.
  • Annual cost is $29.95

Your Athlete Profile Video

  • We offer this service, you can do it yourself or there are other companies online that can help
  • Costs range from $100 – 150 (from us) depending on how much time it takes us to find the clips.  It is much less expensive if you provide us with several clips and let us edit the video to the most important plays to ensure that coaches will watch the video

So, total cost, including the video can be as low as $200!  And, imagine the return on your investment if the recruiting process results in just $1000 in scholarship money or how far your investment goes if you receive $10,000 or more!

We invite you to compare what we offer to anybody out there.  I think you will find it hard to find a better value.

Prospectsites.com – What You Should Include in Your Athlete Profile

The Athlete Profile

Preparing to be recruited by college coaches is a very important task.  It is extremely important to you include enough information for a college coach to become interested and then ask you to take the next step – a college visit.

So, we will talk about what you need to include in your athlete profile in this article.

The Basics

  • Profile picture
  • Name
  • Address
  • Telephone number
  • High School
  • Height
  • Weight

Academic Achievements

  • GPA
  • Class Rank

Extracurricular Activities

Include any other activities that you are participating in including:

  • Student Government
  • National Honor Society
  • Your Church
  • Other Community Involvement

Your Story

I highly recommend that you write a brief but informational life story about yourself.  The story should be about you as an athlete, a student and an individual.  Write what sets you apart in all three areas.  Write confidently but not selfishly.  Remember, you are a team player but it is important to tell the story of how hard you have worked and applied yourself

Pictures

Include multiple pictures of yourself in action and making great plays.  Find those photos that show off your physical abilities

Videos

This is hugely important – maybe the most important thing when it comes to recruiting.  Put together a 3 – 4 minute video of your accomplishments athletically so a coach can see you at “game speed.”  We can help you or there are many other options.  Or, you can do it yourself.  We have a whole article dedicated to the subject by clicking here:

References

Also a big deal.  Get your references lined up and committed to help you.  And, make sure these are people who are going to be recognized by a college coach.  Your high school coaches, teachers, summer coaches, etc. are excellent references to pull together.  Of course, if you know an alumni from the school you are interested, another great source of support.

Contact Information

Make it easy for coaches to get in touch with you.  We have a contact page on our websites which make it very easy for a coach to get in touch.

As always, we are here to help.  Take a tour of some of our athlete profiles so you can see some of the great work our prospects have done to showcase themselves.

Call on us anytime.  Have a great balance of the summer!
