COLLEGE TRACK AND FIELD RECRUITING by Willy Wood
As our recruiting service continues to expand and place student-athletes at the nation’s most selective academic institutions and top running programs, I have been receiving calls from college coaches asking if we have uncommitted seniors among our subscribers. Since the conclusion of the early signing period, I have been contacted by numerous Power 5 programs and highly selective academic institutions. There are still spots out there for you! It seems as though it is far more common than I had imagined for high school track and field recruits to fall through the cracks. In the first few months of this endeavor, I have realized that what I offer most is caulk. We can prevent you from falling through the cracks. We have been able to make introductions, point high school athletes in the right direction, and alert college coaches of specific recruits and their unique stories. The results have been phenomenal thus far – we have runners who went early to Dartmouth, Navy and the University of Chicago. If you are not being recruited by the schools you are most interested in it is time to change your methodology. There is still time to get your story out – to create more options for you – to climb one rung higher on the ladder.
