Updated article from 3/26/2018 on the NCAA Football Recruiting Periods and how the work.
NCAA Football Recruiting Periods
"Will you explode into pieces or form into a diamond out of the rough?"
This quote has played an intricate role in my life and has made me question how much "pressure" one can withstand before becoming an exploding pipe, instead of a beautifully formed diamond. Creating an equal path to a destination that is sought after by many is never the case in today's society.
In football, the pressure comes in many obvious forms on the football field, but what about off the field?
This is the part that keeps most high school football players from being recruited at the level their athletics portray on video. This is the part that separates a recruiting board when they start with a range of prospects that coaches/scouts found in their respective recruiting regions. So let's say their are 8 regions that are being scouted and the regions are regions of the USA, like Southwest or Northwest. Each Scout could like 3 or 4 players at one position from each region, and they will bring them back to the office with full reports on all of the athletes vital information. So in essence, there could be 25-30 players at each position now on the college staffs recruiting boards. This is where you MUST know your NCAA recruiting calendar and the timelines set forth for coaches to evaluate you for their programs.

These rules do not apply to the NAIA level of College Football, which most equate to D2 and some conferences, almost 1AA talent across the board. Our database of ALL current FBS and FCS coaches is now 100% thorough and complete. We are hosting our first regional about a week before "EVALUATION PERIOD" begins and coaches can start adding new members to their recruiting boards. We held our All-American Bowl about two weeks before national signing day for Class of 2018, in order to get late D1 FBS/FCS pick ups and fill spots from de-commits and/or ineligible players. This strategy proved to work for MANY of our players, and we just had an All-American linebacker Will Wright from Team North sign with Union College in Kentucky! It is nearly April, and there are still spots open at the D2/NAIA/JUCO and even some FBS/FCS teams! The choice is ultimately yours on how you will create separation from the pack of over 1 million football recruits that exist in America today. Just like how a Wide Receiver creates separation from a Defensive Back or a Linemen and is able to move another man against his will, you must dig deep to find a way to get the job done in a media driven world. We have not only mastered this process for you and provided a direct path to the next level, we have refined the Pipeline program to encompass everything an athlete will need going forth into the world of Collegiate and/or Pro Football.
