DIY (do it yourself) college football recruiting

When you do all your football recruiting yourself you are being proactive. Good for you! This is certainty more that what others do.

What if you miss the 4 or 5 football colleges that would have offered you a full ride? You lose!

Beware of possible shortfalls, these rank at the top.

1) Learn the recruiting facts, click on the button above.

2) It is in a college coach's best interest to talk to as many football athletes as possible. Don't put any meaning into it, it's just talk.

3) Don't think that getting in front of 5 or 10 or even 100 football coaches will get a coach to respond to you. Why? It goes back to what we told you about position planning boards, you may go straight to the trash because they are not needing your football position now or your low on the list.

4) Start early, start early, start early.

5) Academic eligibility! Meet with your high school counselor to make sure you are on track.

Remember your goal is to get on as many position planning boards as possible. eScout4u's recruiting methodology will get you in front of hundreds or thousands of football coaches, staff and recruiters, depending on the level you choose.

Login and we will tell you the number of possibilities you can have. i.e. football over 5600.
We have helped thousands of athletes.  Are you next?

Think like a football college coach™ topic! What would you do?

If you were a college football coach you wouldn't care how your found athletes. You would want to evaluate as many as possible.

Athletes, cover all your bases, athletically and academically. Parents, you can be a big help now.

    Again, print, share and discuss between parents and athlete! Use the information to plan your recruiting strategy.

Recruiting Costs if you do it yourself (DIY)

Everyone strives to get the ever more elusive scholarship dollars in to his/her pocket. Unfortunately using the DIY (do-it-yourself) approach to scholarship recruiting is the method that most athletes and parents take, with little to no success. The problem with the DIY approach is that times have changed, and no longer will sending DVD's be worth while. Doing it yourself has now become more expensive, less effective and takes a tremendous amount of time.

Using eScout4u's unique methodology and state of the art technology, Nick B. a 2012 graduate earned a scholarship to play at highly ranked DII school. Nick contacted almost 4,000 coaches across 4 divisions with great success in a single day! If Nick would have done it himself and left eScout4u out of it, it would have cost him nearly $8,000! Instead Nick set up an eScout4u account for free, then proceeded to upgrade to our highest package, Level 3 for a very small fraction of the $8,000 he would have spent doing it himself!

Here are a few examples of what people would have paid out of pocket trying to DIY:

cost justification

DIY DVD cost calculation:

  • DVD's to put film on (10 cents per DVD)
  • Duplication of that DVD ( 25 cents per copy)
  • Print and label each DVD (10 cents per DVD)
  • Print a 4 color resume (80 cents per page)
  • Postage (44+ cents per DVD/page)
  • DVD protectors (25 cents per DVD)
  • Other supplies (10 cents)

Total cost per send to Do it Yourself is: $2.04 each + days of personal time
