The "Progress Bar" feature, located in the “Schools” tab of the SportsRecruits account, is a great way for student-athletes and their families to hold themselves accountable throughout their recruiting process. This feature allows the student-athletes to see all of their activity with every school on their favorites list.
Accessing the Progress Bar
Login to your SportsRecruits account
Navigate to the “Schools” tab
Select “Favorites” from the sidebar on the left
You will automatically land on the “Rank” section of your favorites list, where you have sorted each school by numerical ranking
Below any of the schools on your list, click the gray bar that reads “Progress” to reveal a dropdown.
Components of The Progress Bar
The "Progress Bar" outlines a series of "Milestones" that make up a typical recruiting timeline a student-athlete may have with a school. Keep in mind that these steps do not have to occur in the specific order that they are outlined in your progress bar. Every process is unique! These steps include:
"Introduce Yourself" - When you send your first message to a college coach through the SportsRecruits messaging system, this box will automatically check off.
"Request Help" - If you are a part of an integrated organization you can request help from your club or high school coaches. You can only request help once you have sent your first message through the SportsRecruits messaging system.
"Receive a View" - When a college coach views your profile, video, or transcript this box will automatically check off.
"Campus Visit" - After visiting a college's campus, you can manually check this off.
"Receive an Offer" - Once you receive an offer from a college, you can manually check this off.
"Commit" - When you commit to a college, you can manually check this off.
The Activity Overview
Below the checklist portion of the progress bar, you’ll find an "Activity Overview." The data listed here summarizes all the interactions you have had with that particular program.
This feature makes it easier for student-athletes to see how their recruiting process is progressing with a specific school. You are able to see the number of profile views, video views, transcript views, messages sent (messages you've sent to college coaches), and messages received (messages college coaches have sent to you). To see all of this specific activity in more detail, click “View All Interactions”.

*Note: College coaches can only see if an athlete has favorited their specific school. All other schools on your favorites list will be hidden from college coaches
