The Recruiting Brain Provides Clients With

Prospect Identification 

We narrow down the nearly one million high school football players to those who are college prospects.

Preliminary Prospect Evaluation 

We provide early evaluations of college prospects so that colleges have a better idea as to who is worthy of the nearly 10,000 available Division I-A scholarships (over 2,400 per year).

The Most Comprehensive Recruiting Database  

Unlimited access to the largest, most in-depth underclass player database anywhere.

Direct links in order to contact prospects (primarily through twitter/facebook) are provided for most of the top underclass prospects.  Approximately 90% of our top 3000 prospects will have direct links by early June of their sophomore year.

There will also be video links for the majority of our top 3000 prospects by early June of their sophomore year.

Numerous direct links and video links are also available for freshmen and even select junior high prospects.

Information on a Timely Basis 

The Recruiting Brain prides itself in delivering value-added information, including regularly updated player rankings, on a timely basis.


Timely, objective and custom-tailored rankings and reports.


Our clients are exclusively colleges and universities.  We never charge a fee of any kind to high school prospects or coaches.

The Recruiting Brain’s Clients

Acquire a Different Perspective

The Recruiting Brain’s research expertise is at the core of the value proposition offered to clients.  The Recruiting Brain provides insightful, objective and timely research that is designed to enable clients to make informed recruiting decisions. It achieves research excellence through the quality of its staff, the breadth and depth of its resources and relationships and its product commitment. 

Expand Footprint

Expand their footprint into new areas of the country where they have not previously had the time or resources to recruit as prospects are becoming more willing to leave home to find the right school that fits their academic and football needs.

Save Time

Save time in the information-collecting and preliminary evaluation process.  This is time that can be shifted to recruiting and coaching.

Save Money

Save money by having the information delivered to them at a much lower cost than gathering the information directly or through less comprehensive recruiting services.


Our clients more than meet the demands of an ever-changing recruiting universe where time-lines have accelerated and prospects are being identified, evaluated and recruited at a much earlier stage and much more intensely.

Are Flexible

The Recruiting Brain can be a primary information source or it can complement other research—generated in-house or by other third-party firms.

Are A Step Ahead of the Competition

In the evermore competitive world of college football, recruiting is the oil that greases the wheel. Without procuring the right talent, schools are a step behind in terms of winning.   Procuring talent entails three steps:  identifying, evaluating and recruiting prospects.  With The Recruiting Brain, colleges avail themselves of the best service in terms of identifying and providing preliminary evaluations of prospects.
