Erik Agner, Recruiting Specialist
Growing up, I participated in every sport possible. As my high school career went on, I started to focus the most on baseball and was playing almost year-round, including very competitive travel in the summers. My main goal was to continue on and compete at the college level. Unfortunately, my parents and I had no idea what to be doing in the recruiting process. We were the type of people that always felt “if you’re good, they will find you.” While I did have a few opportunities to play at the college level, it was at schools that were not right for me academically or socially, so I chose to go to college of my education. I went to Bowling Green State University to study sports management. After BGSU, I went on and worked for several different professional sports organizations until I found Next College Student Athlete.
When I learned about NCSA, I was very excited to join the team! Looking back on my experience, I really regret not playing at the college level. The most rewarding part of working at NCSA is that I have the ability to work with families and athletes and make sure that they don’t fall into the same trap as me. The best part of working at NCSA is when I receive word that a student-athlete I’m working with has committed to a school.
When I’m not working at NCSA, I’m usually spending time with my wife or out on the golf course
