With FieldLevel Premium, athletes and their coaches can view Match Strength with every college to identify the best-fitting schools to target.

Our matching algorithm takes into account a number of data points throughout our system, including these 3 main factors:

  1. Athlete’s Information / Preferences

  2. Colleges’ Needs / Preferences

  3. Coach Evaluation (Assessment / Projections)

Your Match Strength with every college will either be Low, Medium, High, or Excellent. Match Strength is weighted to ensure the needs and preferences of every college and athlete are fairly met. For example, if an athlete prefers to stay in-state, their maximum Match Strength with colleges out-of-state won't be higher than Medium.

Here is an example of what the College Matches page looks like for a Premium athlete:
