College Football Recruiting Model Updates
By: Eva Melton
Effective August 1st 2017, prospective athletes will encounter a new recruiting model when applying for college football scholarships. The new recruiting model aims to promote a smoother flow within the recruiting process for athletes and coaches.
A pivotal time in every young collegiate athlete’s career is making the transition from high school athletics to the college level. To better understand this difficult process, our Athletes USA marketing intern Conner Huff spoke to a couple athletes that have survived college recruiting and lived to tell the tale. Both athletes are excelling in their respected sports; Cyrus Kington is a senior football player attending Hopkins County Central High School, and Ethan Noble is a South African pursuing a career in track. Connor asked both athletes a series of questions to better understand their issues; the first athlete Connor interviewed was Cyrus Kington.
Recruiting is by far one of the most competitive aspects in college athletics for all divisions. A quality recruiting class can be the difference in a program’s success and failure.
