Year In Review: How NCSA Athletic Recruiting Helped Student-Athletes and College Coaches Connect in 2015


Every day, NCSA helps student-athletes. And thanks to you, our network has thrived this past year. We’ve helped more student-athletes and college coaches connect than ever before, and brought recruiting advice and products to make the recruiting process less confusing and complicated.

We’re excited for what 2016 will bring.

Today, we thought we would share some statistics about how NCSA Athletic Recruiting helped student-athletes and college coaches connect last year. Check out the breakdown:

Our digital platform helped student-athletes maximize their exposure

Almost 80,000 videos were uploaded to student-athletes’ profiles so they could showcase their highlights and skills.

And coaches were noticing; last year we saw 769,380 athletes followed by coaches who are interested in watching them develop on and off the field.

Overall, our student-athletes profiles had 4,063,950 profile views and made over 9 million connections with college coaches.

NCSA helps student-athletes learn about the recruiting process.

There are tons of opportunities to learn about the recruiting process and connect with college coaches at your own pace. Check out what a recruiting profile looks like, if you haven’t already.

And our recruiting experts helped student-athletes and their families learn about recruiting. More than 200,000 student-athletes registered for recruiting classes with recruiting experts, and we sent almost 80,000 emails about student-athletes’ personal recruiting journey.

On top of all of that, we released a new Android app so you can access your recruiting profile anywhere you are. Download it today!

(Our iOS app is coming very soon. Hint hint.)

We were able to celebrate thousands of #NCSACommit stories

More than 20,000 of them.

That’s right: More than 20,000 Class of 2015 graduates who sought help from us went on to find a roster opening at a school that was the right fit for them. You can see stories on Facebook, on Instagram and on Twitter.

And — I need to share because this is personally one of the most important things I think happened this year — even though Easton Sorensen suffered a brain disorder that kept him off the football field, his connection with Jamestown University allowed him to join the staff as a student assistant coach.

We believe in the transformative power of sport. And we’ll do everything we can to help student-athletes take their dream to the next level. But whether it’s participating as a member of the athletic department staff or finding a career in sports, there are so many other ways to stay involved in the sport you love. And we’re happy to help you discover those opportunities, too.

How do you want to stay involved in your sport after high school? We’d love to hear from you. And if your dream is becoming a student-athlete like more than 80,000 NCSA Commits who have had our help before you, we’ll put all of our resources behind you. The best way to get started is with a recruiting profile.
