As one can imagine, college coaches receive hundreds of personal profiles annually from prospects. It is important to streamline your profile into a comprehensive and efficient format that stands above the rest. College coaches will begin to prioritize their recruiting file based on the initial cover letter and resume, and these documents will usually be placed in one of three files of importance.
“A” file: Blue chip, top-tier recruits
“B” file: Second-tier recruits; still have excellent opportunity
“C” file: Little chance of athletic impact; Admissions risks
The personal profile should act as the initial evaluation tool for the prospective student-athlete and your gateway to getting on the radar screen of the college coaches. The aim of the profile should be to provide as much vital information you can by using as little space as possible. Remember, you want to convince the coach to move your profile into the active recruiting file, and simplifying the job for the coach by making this an “easy read” will make the difference
