RECRUITU2.COM LAUNCHES NATIONAL
MARKETING CAMPAIGN
Clarendon Hills, IL (May 4)– A unique recruiting service that puts student athletes’ profiles in the inboxes of hundreds of college coaches launched a national marketing campaign today with the release of radio advertising and an upgraded website.
RecruitU2.com enables high school athletes who want to continue their sports at the collegiate level to contact coaches from Division I, II and III schools by email. Only 2 % of high school athletes are actively recruited by colleges leaving more than 90% to find a way to get their athletic and academic credentials in front of coaches, said Scott Lindberg, president of RecruitU2.com .
The user-friendly online service helps students create athletic and academic profiles to promote themselves to college coaches across the country.“In today’s trying economic times, parents and students are looking for every edge to keep college costs down,” said Lindberg, who has been developing RecruitU2.com for the past six years.“The recruiting process is similar to looking for a job. More interest equals more opportunity and gives you greater leverage to negotiate the best package.”
RecruitU2.com lets students and parents manage the recruiting process to get athletic profiles right in front of the coaches through their email address,” he explained. NCAA rules allow coaches to then respond to prospective recruits.
RecruitU2.com sends a cover letter and profile to the individual email address of every coach at every school where the student qualifies for academic admission based on college test scores, Lindberg explained. Students can fine tune their choices by school size, location or by division.
The company launched its updated website today and more details about the service including pricing can be found at www.RecruitU2.com .
