We’re proud to be the largest athletic recruiting platform since we were founded as the National Collegiate Scouting Association more than 20 years ago. The sports recruiting world has shifted, and we’re always evolving to make recruiting better for college-bound athletes. With IMG Academy’s support and shared mission, we’re leading innovation in sports-minded education and training to help maximize your potential. Here’s what makes NCSA College Recruiting’s approach different:

Sports Recruiting Starts Here

Our recruiting experts often hear the question, “Do I really need a recruiting profile? If I’m good enough, won’t coaches just find me?”

No one, no matter how much of a star player they are, can rely on serendipity in the recruiting process. Because of college recruiting regulations, time constraints and their athletic department’s budget, college coaches don’t have the resources to travel the country to see recruits.

You can become the next college student athlete. There’s no better place to start. Not even close.
