Sports Recruits, simply put, is a recruiting management platform.

It won’t replace the hard work that PSB Directors and Coaches do to help our players through their process, but rather, it will streamline and make the process more efficient for all parties: players, college coaches and PSB.

According to Sports Recruits, “Sports Recruits provides trusted and accurate data around your recruiting process. Student-athletes shouldn’t have to wonder if activity from college coaches is real.”

Manager of Basketball Operations, JD Ey, says: “We will use Sports Recruits to enable our players to play an active role in their recruiting process. We also have coaches and directors with significant experience and knowledge of the recruiting process, who will be able to manage, guide and help our players using the SportsRecruits platform.”

Technology changes and improves nearly every industry, yet youth sports consistently lags behind other businesses and industries. It was time for us to invest in technology that will help us help our athletes.

With all that said, at PSB, we see Sports Recruits as having 5 main benefits for our high school players.
