For your convenience, SportsRecruits tracks video views on athlete profiles. When college coaches click on the link embedded into the bottom of each message you send, they are automatically logged in to see your whole profile. You will see when they do this on the "Recent Activity" section of your profile. If you filter the "video views" on your activity feed, you will be able to see which coaches watched a particular video and when they watched it.
If someone finds your profile online, they are taken to your public profile. This public profile still hosts your video but it has very limited personal information available to anonymous users. The video count (“eyeball” next to the video) increases each time a coach or an anonymous person views your video -- this includes family, friends, high school and club coaches, and other visitors.
We can only track who views the video if the college coach is logged into SportsRecruits.com, meaning they click on the link embedded into the bottom of each message. So the answer, in short, is coaches may be watching your video when they are not logged in or other viewers watched the video anonymously. This is why messaging coaches through your messaging tool is SO IMPORTANT. It provides you transparency.
