As a coach on FieldLevel, you have the ability to recommend your players to college coaches via Promotions. There are a couple of different ways to send promotions to college coaches:
You can promote your athletes to college coaches with Recommended Promotions, which include colleges that are recommended specifically for your athletes based on a number of different categories and criteria.
You can also search for specific programs to promote your athletes using the Colleges tab.
Once you've selected a college where you'd like to promote your athlete, you're provided additional information and data regarding how well your athlete matches that particular school. This includes information provided by you, your athlete, and the colleges.
If your athlete is a good fit for a particular college, you'll see a quick explanation along with a series of green checkmarks:
If your athlete is not a good fit for a particular college, you'll see a quick explanation along with some red X's:
If your athlete is missing important information in his/her profile such as video, GPA, or an updated coach assessment, you'll be notified to add these before sending the promotion:

What does it mean to release a profile?
To have access to a recruit's contact info, college coaches must request it from coaches directly.
When college coaches add athletes to their My Recruits Lists, those athletes' coaches will receive requests to release the athletes' Full Profiles.
When an athlete's profile is released, the college coach that requested it will be able to contact that athlete directly by messaging them on FieldLevel and will receive his/her contact information (email and phone).
Coaches can include personal notes in their approval requests. Coaches will almost always accept profile release requests, and will always explain their reasonings if they deny the request. These requests can be accessed from coaches' alerts in your profile.
