Does college programs search & recruit athletes online?
Colleges use the web to gather recruiting information on potential prospects only if that information comes from a trusted and NCAA compliant scouting service like STUDENT-ATHLETES.com.
There are thousands of athlete résumés online. In reality, most athletes are not true college prospects and coaches don’t waste their time checking them all. Often, the information provided résumés are exaggerated or inaccurate and college coaches are not fooled.
The opportunity to play at the next level is earned and not given, so posting your résumé online does not make you a prospect, it gives you exposure or popularity. You must first have the qualifications to play college sports. If you do, and if you are registered with Student-Athletes.com, our site will be the best resource for your up-to-date scouting information, but you have to continue to make updates as they come.
College programs has continued to rely on accurate recruiting information about our clients.
