Recruiting, for any program, is the life blood to its success. For big time college athletics, the success of the head coach and their program often lives and dies with the effectiveness of their recruiting. Robb Jenson has been an avid recruitnik of college athletic recruiting for over 13 years. He has learned a great deal about their strategies and the mentality utilized by college coaches to recruit “blue chip” athletes. In this presentation, you will learn how you can implement similar strategies into your program to recruit your own “blue chip” students.

  • Ask the crowd if anyone has been recruited before for college sports? How was this experience, what were you looking, what was the deciding factors(s)?
  • Recruiting has grown in several ways. The popularity of internet increased the access and expanded coverage to a year round process. The birth of social media has increased the intensity and exposure of more athletes.
  • Much the same for our graduate students or when we are looking for a new job. Looking to be seen as someone special. Looking for fit.
  • Identify your metrics, much like a coach would do with a position.
  • How are you communicating with your students? One of the best compliments I receive is how responsive I am to their questions.
  • Position, QB, offense vs. defense, GAR vs. GAT, non-funded
  • What are some things you can do to create your own signing day? Currently highlight all of our fellowship recipients.
