RECRUITs: Be Prepared…College Football Camps

Historically the summer months have been huge for recruits that are camping at universities to start earning scholarship opportunities. Recruiting in college football is a competitive process. Recruits should always strive to have something that stands out from the crowd, something that coaches can easily identify them by at camps and events. Whether it’s a pair of highlighter yellow cleats, a headband, or any other accessory, having that standout element can help coaches remember a particular player amidst the sea of talent.

While having a unique appearance is important, it’s not the only factor that matters in the recruiting process. Recruits should also make sure to have their film, contact information, social media links, and transcripts ready. These documents should be conveniently stored in a Google Drive or a free resource like Linktree or Binq Business Card.

In college football recruiting, it’s crucial to leave a lasting impression on coaches. By presenting themselves in a way that catches attention and organizing their information effectively, recruits can increase their chances of being noticed by college football programs.

Further information, Here are a few key tips to ensure recruits are ready for the spotlight:

  • Hudl film: Create a compelling highlight reel that showcases your best plays, demonstrating your skills, agility, and game intelligence. Keep it concise but impactful, making it easy for coaches to identify your strengths.
  • Transcripts: Ensure your academic transcripts are up-to-date and readily accessible. Coaches value not only your athletic abilities but also your commitment to academic excellence. A strong academic record can set you apart from other recruits.
  • Online Presence: Consider updating your social media profiles. Provide easy access to your highlight reel, transcripts, and any additional information that could capture the attention of college coaches through a Google Drive folder.
