You will receive notifications of Profile Activity when college coaches engage with your profile.

College coaches can find you on FieldLevel in many ways, including ...

  1. Searching for athletes using various filters

  2. Viewing the Top Videos page

  3. Receiving a promotion from your coach

  4. Reading a personal message you sent to them

  5. Seeing if you marked yourself as attending one of their events

When coaches find you through these different methods, you might receive four different types of Profile Activity. Each type provides unique insight into what these college coaches might be looking for, their interest levels, and how closely they evaluate you.

These are the four types Profile Activity you can get on FieldLevel:

  1. Search Appearances

  2. Profile Views

  3. Video Views

  4. Follows

When colleges search for athletes on FieldLevel and you appear in search results, you will receive a Search Appearance in your Profile Activity. 

If a college coach views your profile or watches your video, you will receive a Profile View and Video View in your Profile Activity, respectively.

If a college coach follows your profile, you will receive a Follow in your Profile Activity. When colleges follow you, it means they've added you to their My Recruits list so they can track your progress and receive notifications whenever you update your profile, including when you...

  • Change your GPA

  • Change your SAT/ACT score

  • Add video

  • Get evaluated by your coach

  • Update your commitment

Athletes with FieldLevel Premium and their coaches can see exactly which colleges are viewing their profiles, watching their videos, following them, and finding them in search. An example of what this looks like can be seen below. This information will be obfuscated for non-Premium athletes, and only reveal the competition level and state of the college coach interacting with the profile.

Interpreting My Profile Activity

You and your coaches can gauge the level of interest colleges are showing by understanding the types of Profile Activity you receive.

For example, if you receive a Search Appearance but no profile view from a given college coach, you can infer that they haven't seen your profile and are not evaluating you as a prospective recruit.

If a college views your profile and watches your video but doesn't follow you, you might be curious about what additional information they need. At this point, speak with your coaches about the best ways to reach out to that college coach directly to learn what other information they need. If you're a Premium athlete, you can also reach out directly to colleges interacting with your profile by contacting the college directly.
