Eligibility Center Progress Tracker

Each athlete has the ‘Eligibility Center Progress Tracker’ on his/her profile. Use this feature to show college coaches how far along you are in getting cleared by the NCAA.  It is very important that high school athletes are familiar with the Eligibility Center and the requirements the NCAA expects from you.  Failing to get cleared by the NCAA could determine whether or not a coach is going to offer you a scholarship.

Personal Recruiting Blog

Each athlete has their own personal blog hosted on RecruitLook.com.  This feature is popular with both athletes and coaches.  Athletes use the blog to post game recaps, athletic achievements, their involvement in charity work, or anything that a college coach might want to read for evaluation purposes. College coaches read the blogs as an evaluation tool when scouting prospects. RecruitLook blogs rank high in Google Search, which means a recruit that blogs frequently has a better shot of getting found in Google searches. College coaches use Google to do research on recruits before making offers.  Before a coach offers money to a recruit, they will do their homework on the athlete…you can count on that!

RecruitLook Chat

The way to a college scholarship is through constant communication. Whether you are talking with a RecruitLook Scout or a college coach, athletes need to have access to keep the conversations going.  The chat feature allows for users to quickly and conveniently chat with one another from the website or mobile device.  It is a very powerful feature that also enables users to join chatrooms, video chat, broadcast videos, share pictures and a lot more while maintaining user privacy.

Grade Calculator

Don’t jeopardize your eligibility with the NCAA!  Keep a detailed track of your core course GPA.  This nifty feature helps to keep you organized and on track to being eligible.  Simply input your class info, grade received, credits earned and hit save.  Your Grade Calculator will tell you where you stand in regards to the NCAA eligibility requirements.  College coaches cannot stand when a recruit 1.) doesn’t know their core course GPA or 2.) lies about their GPA.  Give college coaches the accurate information! Watch the short video to see how it works.

Full Access to Recruitment Tracking

Stay organized with the communication you are having with college coaches.  We preach a lot of organization in the recruiting process, and this feature is ideal in keeping recruits on the right path!  It can get overwhelming trying to remember all the communication you have with college coaches.  You have text, phone calls, twitter, Facebook, RecruitLook message & chat, and plenty of other forms of communicating with coaches.  It is hard to know where you stand and when you last communicated with a coach.  Keep it all in an easy to use section on RecruitLook!

Advanced Scholarship Search (Limited)

We want to give you as many options as possible to earn scholarship money towards your college education.  There are millions of dollars out there in scholarships, but it is impossible to find the right ones to apply for.  The Advanced Scholarship Search will find the best match for you based on a set of parameters that you provide.  These are not athletic & academic scholarships that RecruitLook Scouts normally assist athletes with.  The scholarship leads that we provide with the Advanced Scholarship Search are better targeted to fit the student-athlete’s information.  This will help RecruitLook athletes apply for scholarships that they have a better chance of receiving.  

All-Star accounts will receive 5 free scholarship leads a year.

Social Media Monitoring

College coaches are using social media as another tool to recruit and evaluate players.  Without even knowing, some athletes have lost scholarship opportunities because they maintained poor behavior on facebook, instagram and twitter.  RecruitLook will train, monitor, and educate athletes/parents on how to best handle social media accounts to ensure scholarship opportunities are not lost.

The internet has changed the landscape of high school recruiting.  College coaches are using new avenues to find their next recruiting class.  The RecruitLook staff is experienced in social media marketing and getting your profile out to the masses.  We’ll get your profile seen by thousands of college coaches across the country.  Our social media network is over 20K followers and growing!  All-Star accounts will get tweeted and shared on RecruitLook’s social networks.  We have firsthand experience of college coaches connecting with RecruitLook athletes through RecruitLook social media blasts.

-Assess what the athlete wants to get out of the college experience.

-Help the athlete build a quality target list of college programs that would be a good fit.

-Provide all the necessary contact and social network information for the college coaches on the athlete’s target list.

-Provide the documents and email templates for every situation that arises during the college recruiting process.

-Determine the recruiting interest from schools and advise a plan on how to maximize the recruiting potential.

-Role play with the athlete to make sure they know how to handle all forms of communication with college coaches.  We’ll cover: social media, texting, phone calls, one-on-one visits and more.

-Breakdown what to expect on unofficial and official visits. 

-Explain to athletes/parents on how athletes need to properly line up official and unofficial visits.

-Assist the athlete with their NCAA Eligibility registration.

-Go in-depth with the academic requirements for NCAA D1, NCAA D2, NCAA D3, NAIA and NJCAA.

24/7 Guidance & Support

RecruitLook Scouts will assist athletes every step of the way throughout the entire college recruiting process.  You read that right!  RecruitLook Scouts are always available to provide support and assistance to get athletes to their end goal.  No other college recruiting service can provide the amount of support that RecruitLook can.  Athletes that work with a RecruitLook Scout will see a bump in recruiting exposure.  One recent Division One football signee had over 700 emails/texts/phone calls with his RecruitLook Scout.
