CHICAGO — Next College Student Athlete (NCSA), the largest NCAA-compliant collegiate athletic recruiting network that matches student-athletes with college coaches, has partnered with DRAFTCARD™, the fast-growing social app that allows athletes to create virtual lockers™ to showcase their personality on and off the field.

“We are always looking for innovative partners,” said Lisa Strasman, president of NCSA. “DRAFTCARD™ is a great new way for student-athletes to showcase who they are. By connecting to the NCSA collegiate athletic recruiting network, DRAFTCARD™ athletes can share their personalities with college coaches.”

Creating an NCSA profile is often the first step on a student-athlete’s college recruiting journey. The profile acts as an athletic resume, allowing college coaches to search for and discover recruits online. This year alone, more than 20,000 student-athletes working with NCSA have committed to a college team.

“In the competitive world of athletic recruiting, it’s important to increase your exposure and visibility. DRAFTCARD™, with its proprietary AR/VR/AI technology, will change the way we view, interact, recognize, and share athletes’ profiles and talents,” said Chris Burget, CEO and founder of DRAFTCARD™. “Partnering with NCSA allows youth athletes from all over the world to stand out in the ever-competitive athletic recruiting process. Our seamless integration with NCSA and the activation process allows athletes to gain access to over 35,000 college coaches in the NCSA network.”
