Working with your coaches to create a great profile is critical to your success in recruiting. Your job throughout your recruiting journey is to:
Build a Great Profile
Constantly Update + Revise
Be A Student-Athlete
Communicate With Your Coaches
Setting Up Your Profile
As a general rule, getting your profile completeness to 100% is important. However, we understand that there are certain pieces of information you might not have right away as you start the recruiting process (e.g. SAT/ACT scores until Junior Year).
Each area of your profile is significant for college coaches based on their feedback, so be sure to add the following pieces of information immediately:
Contact Info (Email, Address, Phone Number)
Honors + Achievements
Hobbies + Interest
Maintaining and Updating Your Profile
Everything in your profile can be edited and updated as you go, so don't worry if your GPA isn't what you'd like it to be or if you need to adjust your Height/Weight as you grow. Updating these areas as you go displays positive growth to college coaches.
Your coaches can also update your evaluations, add performance reports as you develop, and upload video to your profile. These coach updates are displayed on your Timeline for college coaches to review.
Furthermore, colleges can follow athletes to keep track of particular recruits they like by adding them to their My Recruits List When you or your coaches update your profile (ie. GPA, Video, Performance Reports, etc.), college coaches receive notifications in their Timelines as well.
