College Athlete Recruiting Strategy | KTA Recruiting
Connecting you with College Coaches

Our Strategy to Get You Noticed and Recruited

There are over 1,800 colleges in the United States with athletic programs. All of them need to recruit and sign new players every year in order to compete and win. Our mission is to connect those college coaches with our athletes.

So how does it work?

Our service was designed to provide all kinds of college ready athletes with a way to connect with the college coaches who want to recruit them. Our service will allow you to showcase your abilities to college coaches across the country, giving you the opportunity to have plenty of options when it comes to choosing the right school for you. You don't need to spend thousands or even hundreds on the big expensive recruiting services to promote you. Dedicated and talented players are in hot demand. Our mission is to connect athletic recruits like you with college coaches while understanding and tailoring everything we do for you around your unique status.

We provide truly helpful and effective tools and resources for our athletes while offering both Premium and Free membership options.

Create a full profile: Create a full recruiting profile that contains all your important details that college coaches will want to see. Everything from basic physical dimensions, to accolades, to highlights videos, to academics. College coaches will be able to find your profile as they search our database, and you'll be able to track when they look at you. Your profile will have a unique URL, so you can send coaches a direct link to your page. Only verified college coaches will get access to your full profile, while anyone in the public will just see your basic information. With one click your profile can also be condensed and printed off so you can have a professional looking handout to give to college coaches you meet at camps or elsewhere.

Visible to college coaches searching our database: College coaches will be able to see and access your full recruiting profile as they search through our database.

Professional evaluation of your talent: You want to go into the recruiting process with confidence and a firm grasp on what level of college sports you'll succeed at. Our expert team of former college coaches and ex-professional athletes will deeply examine your abilities, defining characteristics, and full athletic profile. We'll score you on multiple categories according to your sport and specialty and compare you with the current trends of incoming collegiate athletes to help give you a clear picture of what you can expect. The evaluation procedure is very thorough. When completed we'll speak with you directly to provide further guidance and ask a few more questions to find out what your goals and plans are for the recruiting process.

1 on 1 recruiting guidance from our expert team: You won't be alone in the recruiting process, we'll be right there in your corner and available to answer your questions and talk you through it. College coaches are professional recruiters, they'll be pulling you in different directions and telling you what should be important to you. Suppose your top priority is playing right away, but that coach knows they're stacked at your position, plus they already have two commits in the boat. That coach says, "We like you, you're probably our starter, you aren't afraid of a little competition, are you?" We'll be there to keep you on track. Another coach may say, "Congratulations, we're going to offer you." Is that a full scholarship, a partial, or just a roster spot? We'll help read between the lines of what you're being told so you can ask the right questions. We're on your side and unbiased. Our goal is to find out what you're looking for, get to know you, and help guide you through the process.

Personalized list of recommended colleges: There are over 1,800 colleges with athletics from Florida to Alaska. You have a lot of choices. As one of the most important offered features we will create a list of colleges matching your detailed specifications where we believe you may have the greatest opportunity for success. Everyone has different priorities, needs, and wants when it comes to making a college selection. To give you such a personally tailored list we're going to dig deep into what you're really after in the college experience. We'll use the information you give us to narrow it down, then use our athletic evaluation of you to further determine where you'd likely be successful. We'll research everything about the programs, from coaches and depth charts, to facilities and fan attendance. The end result will be a short list of colleges we think you may be happy to call home.
