1)- The first thing you need to do in order to get recruited and to receive an offer is to make a Twitter account. College coaches live on Twitter. That is where most of the recruiting in today’s world is done, so you need to be where the attention is. If you don’t like Twitter, that is fine just make it for recruiting purposes only. Keep it professional. Upload a profile picture of you playing football, have your name/graduating class/position/height/weight and any other attributes you want to include in your bio. Now for Twitter to provide you with any kind of value, you need VARSITY film. If you don’t have varsity film, you need to focus on making varsity before you worry about any of these things. Still have the account, but varsity film is key and that brings me into my second way to get an offer.
2)- Start reaching out to coaches. You hear a lot of stories about guys sending hundreds of emails and DMs to college coaches and then finally getting a shot… If you are a guy from a smaller town or maybe are not the most recruited guy, this should be something you consider. It’s hard, it sucks, and you probably won’t get a lot of responses but that’s the work that it takes. All you need is one coach to believe in you and to like you. If you reach out to a thousand coaches, one is bound to respond or at least invite you to a camp they have. But you need to do your part on building a connection with them. Don’t just wait for them to find you. Now, we also get a lot of questions on what to say to a college coach with your emails…. Don’t overthink it. Be professional but be original. Colleges know when you spam a mass message. Ask them questions in your emails, include your highlight link, follow them, follow up with them whether they respond or don’t respond. You can do all of this and dedicate 1-2 hours per day on it. Trust me it’s not that difficult, just a lot of “busy work”.
3)- And last but not least, getting out to camps to build RELATIONSHIPS that lead to offers. It is very rare that a kid will walk into a college camp, be camp number 253 out of 300 and impress coaches so much that he lands an offer. It’s almost 99% not going to happen. You go to camps to build relationships that can lead to an offer when you get film. If you go to a college camp and do really well, and speak with a coach after the camp you should immediately go to Twitter and follow him. Then you should message him thanking him for his time- then you need to consistently follow up with him throughout the year and the season. Send him your mid season highlights when you get them, then send your full season tape. But that’s how you build a connection when you’re unnoticed. It’s a process but the whole thing is called the recruiting process.
