To help college coaches better understand the abilities of potential recruits, high school and club coaches "evaluate" their athletes' profiles.

Evaluations are comprised of 3 things:

  1. Athlete Evaluation

  2. Projection

  3. Athletic Measurements

Athlete Evaluation

Coaches provide written evaluations of their athletes which should include:

  • Athletic Abilities (Strengths + Areas of Growth)

  • Academic Abilities

  • Leadership Skills

  • Character Reference

Coaches are encouraged to provide multiple evaluations throughout the recruiting process as their athletes develop, have great games, make progress in the weight room, etc.


When coaches project their athletes, they are indicating at which competition levels they believe their players will have the most success at that time. As athletes develop, coaches should update their projections.

Athletic Measurements

Athletic measurements are key data points that are specific to their sport. For example, baseball coaches should enter the pitching velocities for their pitchers and volleyball coaches should enter each of their athletes' vertical leaps. Measurements can be updated over time as well.

Who Can See The Evaluations?

Evaluations are private and only visible to college coaches. This allows high school coaches to provide honest evaluations of their athletes to college coaches. Keeping evaluations private helps college coaches know which athletes to pursue for their programs. If athletes or parents have questions about their specific evaluations, they are encouraged to speak with their coaches as this helps get everyone on the same page.
