The Request a Recommendation feature gives college coaches the ability to quickly reach out to you & your staff to request more information about any of your high school student-athletes that they are interested in potentially recruiting! Here's how the whole process works:
Request Recommendation Feature
While a college coach is viewing the profile of any of your integrated organization’s student-athletes on our platform, he/she will see a green bar at the top of his/her profile that reads "Want to learn more about ____ as a student-athlete? Request a recommendation from his/her coach now!" Or if that student-athlete does not yet have a highlight reel or skills video on their profile, the college coach has the ability to request video of that student-athlete.
With just one click, a message is automatically populated to be sent to your staff! The college coach clicks "Send," and the request hits the staff's inbox like any other message. You will receive an email notification that a coach sent you a message, the message will appear in your built in messaging system inbox, and it will also appear on your activity feed.
These requests are sent to any staff members that are assigned to that student-athlete's team. If you only want certain staff members to receive & reply to recommendation requests, administrators can change your staff's profile visibility settings. To learn how to do this, click here.
Your staff can reply directly to the college coach with all of the information they are looking for about that student-athlete. This feature is a great tool to let coaches know what your student-athletes are like on and off the field.
The college recruiting process can be daunting for a teenager and his/her family. In most cases, student-athletes will need to enlist the help of their club or high school coaches to serve as advocates on their behalf. A simple outreach to a college coach could be the reason your student-athlete is playing college sports a year from now. All of this can happen on the SportsRecruits platform.
SportsRecruits is more than a college recruiting website; it is an environment to help your student-athletes pursue their dreams. Sign on to your college coach account here!
