EVERY YEAR TALENTED STUDENT-ATHLETES LOSE OUT ON THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPETE IN COLLEGE ATHLETICS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW HOW TO APPROPRIATELY MARKET THEMSELVES.
STUDENT-ATHLETES NEED TO GET THEIR INFORMATION DIRECTLY INTO THE HANDS OF COLLEGE COACHES.
My name is Elliot Whitefield, owner of Above The Rim Recruiting, Inc (ATRR). ATRR specializes in assisting AAU/Travel basketball programs, as well as, high school basketball players and their families navigate through various aspects of the recruiting process.
Managing the college recruiting process requires time, energy and persistence. Often, athletic recruits and families become overwhelmed during the process, frustration sets in, and more often than not, give up on the idea.
It is a fact that the more proactive a recruit is during the process; the better chance of receiving an athletic scholarship and/or financial package. Recruits who hope and wait to get noticed by college coaches are the ones who lose out on their dreams of participating in college athletics.
With the technological advancements, college coaches receive more emails and highlight videos than ever before. It’s impossible for college coaches to sift through it all. The first thing coaches will look at are a player’s academics. That is why it’s imperative that potential recruits are communicating with schools that match their needs academically, socially and athletically.
If College Coaches Don’t Know About You, They Can’t Recruit You!
