Athletic Recruiting NCSA Colleges of the Month

NCSA Colleges of the Month – July 2019

Every month, NCSA’s Colleges of the Month list will highlight outstanding college athletics programs at each division level that are utilizing NCSA’s Recruit Match platform to draw interest from potential recruits.

How do we pick the winners? Each month, we tally up which college has received the most favorites from NCSA users at each division level. When an NCSA user has favorited a college, it signifies their strong interest in that school and provides a snapshot of which athletic programs are staying active on the NCSA platform by drawing recruiting interest, logging profile views and messaging potential recruits.

Congratulations to our Colleges of the Month and check back next month to see which ones make the list!
