Welcome to SportsRecruits! The first step in setting up your student-athlete profile is to upload a profile picture. This will help enhance a college coach’s understanding of who you are throughout the recruiting process.
Based on our data, college coaches are 3 times more likely to message a student-athlete when they have a profile picture. Our research suggests that college coaches prefer a headshot that shows your face as opposed to an action shot. Let these coaches put a face to your name!
In Order to Upload a Profile Picture, Follow These Steps:
Log in to your student-athlete account.
From the activity feed, click the "Profile" tab on the top of the page.
On the left-hand side, click "Edit"
Click "Upload Photo"
From the drop-down window, select the specific file that you would like to upload.
Crop the photo as desired.
Once you are satisfied with how it looks, click "Save Photo"
Be sure to click "Save" in the bottom left-hand corner of the page.
What Kind Of Picture Do I Use For My Profile Picture:
Remember your profile picture is your first impression with a college coach. We recommend that you have a picture on your profile that shows your face so that a coach can identify you on the sidelines. We also recommend you are the only person in the picture. Below we have listed some ideas but the most important thing is to keep it appropriate and professional.
- A photo of you in your high school or club gear
- A photo of you in your uniform with your jersey number visible
- A photo of you in a more professional outfit
- An action photo of you playing on the field
