Searching for recruits on FieldLevel is an easy way to find athletes for your program. You can utilize a variety of filters to narrow down athletes based on the criteria most important to you.

To search for athletes, click the "Discover Athletes" button on the right-hand side of your homepage.

You can also navigate to the search page by clicking the "My Teams" icon on the upper right-hand side of any page and clicking "Discover Athletes."

From there, you can navigate between three tabs designed to help you find the best recruits for your program:

  • All Athletes

  • For You

  • Targeting Your Program

All Athletes

On the "All Athletes" tab, you can view suggested searches for you and your recent searches.

You can click the blue "Filter" button to filter athletes based on any combination of the following criteria:

  • Athlete/Team Name

  • Current Competition Level (High School Grad Year)Β 

  • Coach Projection Level

  • Position

  • Height/Weight

  • GPA and SAT/ACT Scores

  • Location (State/Country)

  • Distance from your program

  • Commitment Status

  • Athlete's Planned Major

  • Whether ...

    • You are connected to their coach

    • Their profile has video

    • They have a recent assessment

    • They have transcripts

    • They have contacted your program

    • You have viewed their profile

When you select your desired filters, you will see athletes displayed in helpful cards containing useful information such as videos, evaluations, and more. You can also easily message athletes and add them to My Recruits list. Finally, you can sort search results by Relevance, Nearest to You, Newest Athletes, and Last Viewed.

Additionally, if an athlete does not have video, you can request it using the "Request Video from Athlete" button. This will notify the athlete via email that a college coach is requesting video, and you will be notified when it's added to their profile.

For You

On the "For You" tab, you can view athletes with video grouped into helpful categories, such as "In-state picks for you", "Talent within a 2-hour drive", and more.

By clicking into a category, you'll be able to learn about different athletes, watch their videos, view their evaluations, message them, and add them to your My Recruits list.

Targeting Your Program

Athletes have the ability to research and add colleges to their Target Schools Lists, indicating their interest in playing for specific programs. As a college coach, you have the ability to search for athletes who are interested in your program. This can be a very helpful tool when determining which athletes to track and contact for camps, campus visits, and other parts of the recruiting process.
