I’m often asked, “How do I get on Rivals?” My answer is simple, “Get noticed by college coaches.” This usually receives a puzzled look. ”Doesn’t Rivals discover talent?”
The answer is simple, “No, they report on who has been discovered.” If a recruit runs a 4.2 at a camp, trust me that information will be in the hands of a college coach before the report is up on the web. If Michigan offers an athlete, he will skyrocket up any internet list of recruit rankings. Star ratings double and a recruits video on youtube reaches viral rock star status.
The key thing to understand is that this all begins with a recruit being identified as an elite prospect by college coaches. So how can you get identified by coaches? By connecting to them on the Athletic Scholarships Network. NCSA has successfully connected over 92% of the verified recruits in our network with college coaches. By giving coaches a unique opportunity to make quick and honest evaluations we bypass the various other methods that are so costly to both parties.
So my advice to recruits is simple find a way to connect to coaches and internet fame will follow shortly.
