Athletic Recruiting NCSA Colleges of the Month

NCSA Colleges of the Month – August

Every month, NCSA’s Colleges of the Month list will highlight outstanding college athletics programs at each division level that are utilizing the 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 NCSA Favorites from platform 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.

This activity also provides insight into how colleges are recruiting right now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, college recruiting has largely moved away from events and in-person meets to online activity. For example, the recruiting dead period has been extended through September 30 for all NCAA D1 sports. Many colleges have adjusted by moving their recruiting online with NCSA.

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