If you are a student athlete or parent looking for help to understand the college recruiting process, check out Advocates for Athletes. I highly recommend their program! Here is their most recent email showcasing the success stories of helping student athletes attend college:
I am very proud to announce the list of colleges that our A4A Class of 2015 will be attending. This has been a great class, and we have just as high of expectations for the Class of 2016.
Here is where our 2015 grads are heading: University of Arizona, Arizona State, Chapman, University of Colorado-Boulder, Davidson, Davis (2), Dennison, Hawaii, Holy Names, Lafayette, Lewis and Clark, MIT, University of Pacific, Puget Sound, Redlands, Sacramento State, San Diego State, San Jose State (2), Santa Clara, St Mary’s, Tulane, University of Washington (2) Willamette, Whittier.
In the 5 years that A4A has been in business we now have student athletes at 97 different colleges and universities around the country.
Keep in mind, it is not necessarily about the name of the school as much it is the “best fit” for that particular athlete. A4A prides itself in the fact that very few of our athletes have ever transferred schools. The best explanation for that is because we take our role seriously treating the college choice not just as a 4-year decision but as a 40-year one, one that will affect the athlete for the rest of their life.
September is right around the corner and September 1st is our cut-off date for working with seniors. So, if you know any aspiring senior-to-be-athletes that need help with the recruiting process, please send them our way. And that goes with juniors and sophomores too – with the competition for scholarships and recruited walk-on spots at an all-time high, recruiting is starting earlier and earlier than ever before.
All the Best,
Advocates for Athletes, LLC.
