It's up to the athlete and their family to take charge of the recruiting process. Coaches play a critical role in facilitating the recruiting opportunities and interest in their student-athletes.
Technology is everywhere. Today, we use it to order food, do our banking, connect with friends and even to skip the line at Starbucks. And, it didn't take long for it to begin altering the college recruiting process, either.
For athletes, it's pretty obvious to see how technology has altered the recruiting landscape, from the importance of an online athletic resume to capturing crisp highlight and skills videos on a smartphone. But technology has now become crucial for club coaches and club recruiting coordinators as well. Many have turned to technology to streamline their recruiting process for their athletes and make it easier to connect their players with college coaches across the country.
