Communication is a key part of the college recruiting process. It helps demonstrate your interest in that particular college. Contact schools with meaningful updates during your student-athlete career. It helps to reach out to share things like a new highlight video on your profile, a GPA increase, or an accolade you received from your high school season.
The more times you actively reach out, the better chance you have to discover who is interested (i.e. multiple profiles and/or video views, coming to watch you play live, or reaching out to your club/high school coach). You need to put yourself out there to see results!
With the SportsRecruits Messaging System, you will save time while remaining organized and transparent! The messaging system is where you take control of and attack your college recruiting process! It is what allows us to track all of the interactions between a college coach and your profile. Our messaging system saves you time by not having to search for each college coach's contact information. We regularly update our database ensuring the information is correct so all you have to do is type the school you’re interested in.
Embedded SportsRecruits Profile Link
Each time you email college coaches through your profile, a link to your SportsRecruits profile is automatically embedded at the bottom. That link is personalized to the recipient of the email. So, when college coaches click on it, it automatically logs the coach into his/her SportsRecruits account and takes them directly to your profile! This allows us to track in real-time which part of your online profile college coaches are viewing and when so it's important to have your highlight videos, test scores, and information (athletic and academic) updated. Click here to learn more about your profile “link.”
This is why it is essential to do all of your outreach through our platform instead of your personal email. Our users have told us that it's beneficial to keep all of their recruiting emails in one place which is where SportsRecruits was an important part of their process. Our messaging system combined with your proactive outreach as an athlete will provide you with the transparency you are looking for throughout your recruiting process!
