Every year thousands of student-athletes are overlooked for athletic scholarships. Not because they aren’t good enough, but because the right college coaches didn’t know about them.

More than 80% of the nation’s collegiate sports opportunities are outside of the NCAA Division I level. The majority of those programs have an average recruiting budget of less than $500, which explains why coaches from the nation’s 1,800 colleges overlook thousands of student-athletes every year.

Student-athletes need guidance when navigating through the hectic recruiting process. Athletes Wanted lays out guidelines, provides tips, offers timelines and answers hundreds of questions about recruiting. It’s filled with knowledge that athletes need, but may not have.
