When applying to college or for a job, having quality references that provide personal introductions is key. College recruiting works the exact same way.
On FieldLevel, your coaches are the only ones who can send your profile to college coaches via an Athlete Promotion. Once you feel your profile is completely built out, talk with your coaches about promoting you to college coaches in their network.
With that said, college coaches have the ability to send direct messages to recruits on FieldLevel. While college coaches must initiate the conversation, you and your parents can communicate personally with college coaches once you receive a message.
