                                        How Do we  Help you take your                          Education & Game to the Next Level


Next Level Recruiting provides 4 distinct phases of College Athletic Recruiting which make us one the leaders in the industry.

1. Character - Because our recruiting representatives are located locally, working directly with your head coach, we are able to attend most practices & games on a regular basis, this allows us to provide College Coaches with personal information on one of their most IMPORTANT questions about a prospective recruit, What type of person is he?  This is a unique aspect of Next Level Recruiting.


2. Evaluation - You must be evaluated by a trusted source your  (current coach).


3. Identification - You must be identified by college coaches/recruiters 

(They must know you exist).


4. Recruited - With the Student-Athlete, your head coach and Next Level Recruiting we will create a profile to present to our Nationwide network of college Coaches/Recruiters with a non-biased evaluation of our recruits.

Knowing where you currently stand in the recruiting process is a critical part of your personal recruiting game plan. 

  According to 93% of College Coaches, it’s important for Student-Athletes to gauge the level of attention that you’re receiving from college coaches so that you know what to expect from the recruiting process.

 There are 3 levels of recruitment. See where you stand in the list below and find out from NLR the best way to move up a level or two and improve your chances of earning an athletic scholarship.
